Dr. Gunel saved my life. Diagnosed with a brain abscess on the cerebral spinal fluid sac, I was in a life-threatening situation. With his expertise and skill and those he chose to assist with my care and surgery, I had the best outcome ever! It is has been almost 3 years and I am grateful to him to this day . He truly cares about his patients and their families.
