Patient Comments (2)
My child expressed suicidal thoughts to this doctor and he did not take them seriously, which encouraged me not to take them seriously. After my child attempted suicide and survived, Dr. Kunze did not want to confer with the hospital and was very rude to me when I attempted to speak to him while my child was in the hospital about what happened and how my child was currently doing. Prior to this I thought he was a good listener and knowledgeable about medications.

I've recommended Dr. Kunze several times to friends. They have all been pleased. Our experience has been great. I find that he really listens to the kids and the parents alike.
