I saw Dr Dunleavy because of a slip and fall. Because of his negligence I have a permanent disability. My hamstring is permanently severed and cannot be reconnected because he put me off. The tissue is dead and had he taken me seriously originally I could have had surgery to reattach my hamstring .

I would not recommend Dr. Dunleavy or this office to my worst enemy. It is all about money here and has a secretarial staff that couldn't care less. Will not be treated like this by a physician--no less-ever again.
