I went to Dr. Unsell for my finger. I heard one of the office people refer to me as "that big girl." The male nurse was very kind. The doctor himself was very abrupt. He used a freezing spray on my finger and didn't even wait 10 seconds before jabbing a needle in my painfully swollen finger. I was never told what was wrong. Another office person came in to set up another appointment. When I started asking questions, she sighed...picked up her laptop and went to get the doctor. I had to ask what was wrong with my finger (never even saw an x-ray). He briefly explained and gave me powerful antibiotic (only 1 pharmacy in 20 miles had any in stock). It was a 14 day prescription but wanted me to come back in 5 days! When I came back, of course, very little had changed. He said come back next week when it was finished. It was a complete waste of time and money. Copayment collection was also inconsistent. The 1st time she said they would bill me. The 2nd time she rudely demanded payment now!

Dr. Unsell performed carpel tunnel surgery on both my hands and did surgery on my left wrist. I was very careful about selecting a hand surgeon because I am a professional jazz guitarist. After surgery and physical therapy I was 100% recovered.

Dr. Unsell was incredibley careless in the reading of my x-rays. He told me the bones in my hand look great. He was SO WRONG! I have a bone spur that is very noticeable in my x-rays. This bone spur has ruputured the tendon to my middle finger. He totally miss diagnosed my condition. I do not recommend his services.

Waited for over an hour and a half past my appointment time to see the doctor. Clerical staff was very unprofessional (I watched one of them change the order of charts so certain people could be seen before others. She did this twice). Unless the treatment provided works extremely well I won't be going back.

I depend on my hands for my lifelihood, when I started losing feeling in my right hand I was devastated, I was referred to Dr Unsell by my Doctor, Dr Unsell recommended surgery, (I was scared to do this) I agreed, and in less than two months later I am back to 100 percent, what a blessing to have crossed paths with such a gifted surgen. Thank you Benny Garcia

I had a ruptured (distal) bicep tendon reattached. There never was any pain level that required the use of pain suppressing medication. My down time was less than anticipated and I was able to get back to my daily activities MUCH SOONER than expected. Excellent physician!
