I just can't see this guy any more. I just had a virtual appointment and after hanging up, I just sat there and thought, could he really have been that insulting? He prescribed for me a highly addictive drug, because he sees me as old and not really worth the trouble of avoiding addiction. He refused to consider any other medication, except one I told him I am intolerant of. The remedy he suggested was to make a gratitude list every day and read a book. I do not have to pay specialist rates for this. I doubt Dr. Wunnava's expertise. He doubts my ability to think at all. Maybe a class in communication skills could help him? Guys, there is a reason he is always available

I am continuing to be a patient of Dr. Wunnava as he is developing his new practice. I have back, hip and shoulder issues that keeps me in constant pain. He takes more interest in treating me than any of the other Doctors I have seen. It is actually very comforting to have a Doctor that will sit down with you, listen to you and develop the best treatment for your condition. His bio will attest to his knowledge and skills. The staff is outstanding, helpful to your needs and so easy to work with.

I have been seeing Dr Wunnava for many years now. Not only his he knowledgeable and easy to speak to about your pain issues, he knows how to explain things in a manner that I can follow. He consistently checks in with me while performing various procedures to help alleviate and treat my pain such as epidurals and nerve blocks. He is a family man and his healthcare compassion shows while providing treatment. He never is in a rush, but works with you to develop a plan of treatment.
