Dr. Gunnell is a great orthopedic surgeon. I had broken my fibula in a soccer injury and required surgery. About 15 & 1/2 weeks after the surgery I was back playing soccer at full strength. I would highly recommend her!

Dr. Gunnell's support and office team are so helpful, attentive, and professional too. They keep things on track and have you in and out of the office in a very timely and efficient manner.

Please DO NOT go to this Doctor - she lies and tells you different things every time one goes to her office. Her person that works with her is very hard to work with. They DO NOT care in how much pain one is in or how one feels. Wish i would NEVER would gone to this doctor.
