Patient Comments (3)
in Encino, CA |
Dr. Gunnell was one of the most unprofessional doctors I have ever dealt with. He was incredibly condescending to the patients wife and friends. A family on the brink of despair is looking for a little compassion. Dr. Gunnell showed them none. At one point he said to the patients wife "when you're done interrupting I'll continue". I promise you she was not interrupting him. He was doing rounds for a doctor on vacation and gave every impression that he was inconvenienced to be there.

Dr. Gunnell is always up to date with the latest on cancer and other diseases. He is courteous, kind, considerate and always very professional. He has an understanding with his patients and keeps them well informed regarding their illness. I would highly recommend Dr. Gunnell to anyone as he is a pit bull when it comes to fighting cancer.
