Dr. Bunch AND his Nurse Practitioner, Angel, are wonderful. I have never ever felt rushed during my appointments. They are kind, have a great bedside manner and are so very smart.

I have been a patient of Dr. Bunch for many years. He kept me from having to get spinal fusion for over six years by keeping my pain controlled. I finally had the surgery and now have other back issues he is treating. He and Angel, his PA, are a great team. Highly recommend!

Thorough diaganostic process and he sits between you, the surgeon, the neurologist, and the physical therapist. Thoughtful, caring, never rushed and satisfies my need to know why.
