Go see this doctor. The nurses and social workers and doctors are so friendly and made me feel extremely comfortable. The office feels comfy and not overly sterile or clinical. I can tell that the employees enjoy being there. And while professional they are so friendly and warm.

Dr. Bunt and his entire team is amazing! They are beyond caring and supportive! The welcoming faces from when you walk in, to see the doctors themselves is everything I've been looking for. Dr.bunt himself is a very busy man, but don't think he doesn't pay attention to what's going on with the patients. He is always there to answer questions and make you feel more comfortable! I love this place more then any other I've been too. Thank you so much for your help guys!

I saw the PA Frick. She is horrible and insensitive. First talking about making appointment fast because we started late. After asking if they were running behind she accused me of being late when i was actually there half hour early with ALL paperwork done. There was more to that experience that made it worse. With 10 years in the medical field i know that is not how a patient should be spoken to nor treated. I highly recommend you choosing one that can help you; not make matters worse.

I called looking for a suboxone provider and being very nervous to go into this program, the ladies at the front desk where very professional and helped me get an apt ASAP. They where friendly and explained everything I needed to know. I was taken back by one of the Medical Assistance and she started the apt with me, then I went to see an arnp Susan who made my experience that much better. Before the end of the apt Dr. Bunt came in and explained the last of the program to me.

My PCM sent me to Dr Bunt, because I wanted to stop taking antipressants. I saw the Dr for about 5 min when he introduced himself during my 1st visit with the NP, whose job is apparently to keep getting you to take medication. She decided I had ADD. I'm over 50 so this was news to me. Rather than stopping medication, she kept talking me into trying different meds (for depression, anxiety, & ADD), most of which caused bad side effects. Nearly a year later, I was more screwed up than before.

I have been going to Dr. Bunts office for over 4 years. I see Suzanne Berkeley every month she knows and understands more about my condition than my doctors do. The office is extremely nice and friendly Christie the office manager works with you on any situation you might have, overall the whole office is extremely professional and knowledgeable.

I thought I would see Dr. Bunt, I got an appointment with a nurse-practitioner instead. She told me Dr. Bunt refuses to prescribe Benzodiazepines and that I had to stop taking mine immediately. I expressed worry about this. My previous psychiatrist said that it was dangerous to stop immediately and it could cause seizures. She became angry and unresponsive. I realized she was incompetent and I had to ween myself off the Benzodiazepine without any professional guidance until I saw a real doctor.

I was referred here by a psychologist in the area. Dr. Bunt is rarely available and my care was managed seemingly only by his P.A.,Khaleda, who encourages email communication only and then is often unreliable in responding. For 10 days I tried to reach them while out of the state after forgetting my medicine, got no response, and went into withdrawals. Even though Dr. Bunt was my doctor, I rarely saw him. My psychiatric care was severely mis-managed based on the opinions of other doctors.

I've only seen Dr. Bunt once for 10 minutes during my initial appointment. I always have my appointment with the same person and she is friendly, she prescribes my medication and we talk. However, if Dr. Bunt is my doctor I would like to see him on occasion!

I was referred to Dr. Bunt by my general practitioner. I spent 2.5 hours in his office with a nurse practitioner but never saw Dr Bunt with whom I had an appointment. This nurse prescribed medication that major interaction warning with meds I am currently taking. This is the whole reason my GP sent me to this psychiatrist in the first place.
