Terrible. This is doctor (man? ) is a monster. EXTREMELY DISRESPECTFUL. Prescribed medication for unrelated illness. Acting as a Phychiatrist. Got nasty when I questioned him about the meds and other matters. Told me I could not interject. Over talked and insulted me. He made me feel ashame of seeing a doctor. Negative zero is the rating and that's being generous.

I have been a patient of Dr. J. Junkets for over 15 years. I trust my Doctor because he listen before he prescribe any medicine and examination. Vietnam veteran who had problems breathing through his right nostril. Dr. Kunkes identified the problem and corrected the problem. Thank you Don't mention the New York Yankees

It appears the staff was more concerned about receiving a payment versus determining what was wrong with me. The paperwork and insurance verification took 45 minutes and the exam about 10 min, which I felt rushed out of there. I was given meds that I know don't work for me and to top it off they charged me over $500 dollars to shine a light in my ear and nose. Not a satisfied customer. Won't go back!!!
