I sustained multiple injuries from an auto accident in 2008 and sought numerous treatments from various doctors. Because of my injuries and other doctors not being able to help with my injuries, my personal life took a turn for the worse. I gained too much weight, didn't go out with my family / friends anymore and couldn't do simple chores around the house. After meeting Dr. Bundschu, my condition improved dramatically. I am close to being in the best shape of my life now. BEST DOCTOR EVER!

I absolutely recommend Dr bundschu. I have received the best possible care and I would not put my spine in other hands but Dr Bundschu's. He is excellent.

In the spinal injections I received from Dr Bundschu and during my office appointments I found him to be not only exceptionally qualified in his medical treatment but extremely considerate and caring. Trust and integrity are the two most important elements in a doctor-patient relationship. I trust his medical decisions and I admire his integrity. I am certain that all of his patients feel as I do. We are treated not merely as patients but very respectfully as individuals in need of medical care.

Dr. Bundschu is an excellent pain management doctor. I have seen him as needed for several years. I have had 2 back surgeries and have depended on Dr. Bundschu to see that I don't need further surgery through pain management. He isextremely talented in his profession and very much concerned with the patients well being. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing pain management. Sincerely, Mary Banister-Tribble

Dr. Bundschu is an excellent Pain Management physician. Both my wife and I have been his patients for about 3 years. He has treated me successfully for neck pain and now lower back pain. We have full confidence in him. Our only complaint is the waiting time between appointments for injections, especially for me. Because I am on a blood thinner, I have to be treated at the Surgery Center as opposed to the office, and I've had to wait up to a month between injections. I highly recommend him.

I find Dr. Bundschu to be a very personable and understanding Doctor whom also has a sense of humor which tends to alleviate any trepidation that a patient may have. I also find his staff to be very curtious and professional throughout. I also find his P.A. Gina Sussi to have the same compassion and professionalism as Dr. Bundschu, and am highly impressed by his lead Nurse Brian whom is quick to respond to any calls for questions. Overall, an excellent group.

He has treated me for a pain disease, RSD for 10yrs. He has never given up on finding ways to help me and has made me able to cope with this disease. He encourages me to stay positive and helps educate my family about my disease. I am NEVER rushed through as a patient as some doctors may do. I would HIGHLY recommend him and I can say some of my family members have choose him as well and are extremely happy as well. He's great in surgery situations as well and I trust him completely.

I appreciated the relaxed environment with Dr. Bundschu. He is very patient and has a great sense of humor. He thoroughly explained my condition and options. I felt like I was treated like a person and not just let's get this over with.
