Patient Comments (3)
in Overland Park, KS |
I saw Dr. Dunfield in late fall 2013 and I will never forget that experience. He was arrogant and aloof. He did not introduce himself, did not look at me, but just stared at the chart in his hands. Then he says, "What can I do for you?" I seriously felt like I was "bothering" him and he probably hated his job". Worst bed side manner I have ever experienced with a Doctor.

Great chairside manner and thorough explanation of treatment options. Would recommend to anyone.

Dr. Dunfield has performed ear surgery on my husband, and taken care of my mother also.We feel he is the best ENT we have been to.
