DO NOT see Dr. Zuniga. I repeat DO NOT see Dr. Zuniga. His office staff billing personnel Valerie will flag your account which will not allow you to see the doctor when you are in severe pain even though the Doctor took an oath to help patients. I was seen in April and had a balance that I agreed to pay $25 monthly. I have a balance of $123.43 and just made a payment of $24 on August 21st and was told I was not able to get seen even though I have met my deductible and would only get billed for my 10%. Valerie stated that my payment arrangement was only to keep me off of collections but not to allow me to get treated until I was paid in full. This is the worst customer service I have ever had from any Doctor. I would not recommend this doctor to my worse enemy. They will leave you in pain for a lousy $100. I could have paid the balance but I REFUSE to be seen by this type of doctor that allows his staff to think they are above the law. VALERIE I hope you feel pain one day.

Dr. Zuniga is an excellent physician. I have lupus and because of Dr. Zuniga's knowledge and experience with the disease I am living a fairly normal life now without pain. I have recommended Dr. Zuniga to many of my family and friends.

Dr. Zuniga is one of the best diagnosticians I have dealt with. He is extremely thorough and carefully listens to me when I am explaining something or asking questions. He takes the time to explain why he recommends a particular treatment or medicine. And he seems genuinely concerned in giving me the best medical treatment. Since I deal with multiple diseases he is also very good in keeping in touch with my other specialists so that they all are in the loop of my treatments.

Dr. Zuniga-Montes is a very caring doctor, who listens to his patients. He never rushes an appointment. He is rare because he is willing to have his patients see other specialists. He communicates with your other doctors to ensure you are receiving the best possible treatment. He is very personable, friendly, and knowledgeable. He doesn't appear to be a doctor just for the money, but truly cares about the patient.
