I would recommend Dr. Kunkel to anyone. He was friendly at every visit, patient, gentle, and took his time to answer all of my questions. Anytime I had a concern he was always willing to go above and beyond the call of duty. His office staff is so friendly and helpful. I had a breast reduction and they turned out amazing! I feel like a teenager again with no back pain from my breast being so large. If I ever bring myself to have a tummy tuck Dr. Kunkel will be the doctor to do it!

Dr Kunkel has done major reconstructive surgery on me following a breast cancer diagnosis. I have been thrilled with the results. I had fears of horrible disfigurement after surgery but to my astonishment and delight, it was as if Dr Kunkel read my mind and created what I had hoped for. His surgical talents are truly a gift and I feel blessed to be under his care. He is very thorough and honest with what he believes will be both the healing process and surgical outcome. EXCELLENT SURGEON.
