If I could give a zero I would. My son tried to suicide several times. His office staff was rude. We are now with a great team of therapists! Run don’t walk. He was awful

If there were a way to give less stars, I would. HORRIBLE experience. Unprofessional, unethical, and just plain bad. RUN do not walk, RUN to a real provider. I've asked our insurance company to investigate his billing, as I have a LOT of documentation to question it.

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.
