Dr. Gunst was wonderful! From the moment he walked into the emergency room to tell my husband and I that he needed to do emergency surgery on my husband, until the time after he did the third surgery, he was very informative, sympathetic, and caring. We could not have asked for a better doctor to be in that emergency room that day. Thank you Dr Gunst!

Debra Crosman in Buena Park, CA – Jul 15, 2017
Mr. Gunst and I had the displeasure of speaking for approximately 3.5 minutes. I take a lot of care in selecting good doctors, and Mr. Gunst isn't even a doctor in my eyes. He insulted me, and belittled me before I had to tell him to get out of my room. He was supposed to perform my cholysysectomy. Thank God I found Dr. Watt. He is THE BEST and works in the same clinic. Mr. Gunst BILLED ME $207 for insulting me and telling me I was stupid to be considering other options. Avoid at all costs!!!!
