      My wife has been seeing him for 3 months he cut her back on her pain meds and is always trying to get her to do water therapy that cost a ton he's real short and his manners are terrible I wouldn't refer anybody to him seems like he's just trying to get your money and if you don't want treatment then he is real nasty

      in Newburgh, NY |
      Absolutely Great Doctor. He listens to you and treats you with respect. Never talks down to you or make you feel uncomfortable.His staff is always on point and polite. After lifetime of going to my parents doctor they were bought by a big med company, which cause them to lost their personal doctor/patient relationship. Dr.Dunkelmans #1 concerned is your health and helping you get better. I'm very happy that I found him as my doctor, life became a lot less stressful

      DR. DUNKELMAN HAS BEEN MY PAIN MANAGEMENT PHYSICIAN FOR WELL OVER 4 YEARS NOW. HE LISTENS TO THE PATIENT, WHICH IS IMPORTANT TO ME.
      in Chester, NY |
      This is an excellent, compassionate, and thorough physician. He listens carefully, takes thorough notes, and is always professional. If family and friends lived closer, I would definitely recommend them to Dr. Dunkelman's office. Since I need to visit his office monthly, and have been his patient for several years, I can recommend him without hesitation.
      in Hamburg, NJ |
      Dr. Dunkleman is a very professional, friendly and efficient doctor. I've been seeing him for over 8 years now and I am very pleased with his care of my chronic pain issue. I would definitely recommend him to my family and friends.

      in Goshen, NY |
      Very caring
      in Bloomingburg, NY |
      Smooth, professional and cordial.
      in Monroe |
      I really think he's the biggest jerk I've ever seen in my life, he is cold hearted
      in Middletown, NY |
      I would recommend Dr. Dunkleman to any one who wants professional expertise in the field of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation. If you have a legitimate issue, and follow his moral & legal requirements for treatment he will not disappoint you. It takes a lot of fortitude to legitimately practice in this field in today's society. I give him much credit for caring for those in need. However, if you choose not to be honest and forthright with him, don't expect compassion.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Dunkelman's Care Philosophy

      Patients with chronic pain often become disabled in the pursuit of gaining relief from their pain. My philosophy in pain treatment is based on experience that patients suffer more when their functioning and quality of life are impaired. My goal is to increase the functional ability of each patient to the highest possible level. With years of experience i have the responsibility to diagnose and manage chronic pain while maximizing the benefits and minimizing the adverse effects of treatment.
