in Clayton, NC |
Dr. Kunde was very knowledgable and realistic. He actually took the time to listen to my concerns as a mother and I felt that he truly respected them. He explored several options to find ones that I comfortable using with my infant son. I was very pleased when I left from our visit.
in Raleigh, NC |
My daughter is a patient and we love it. The staff is amazing and we would recommend them to anyone!
Raleigh, NC |
Dr. Kunde and his team are fantastic! As a nurse practitioner myself, I was impressed by the professionalism of the entire team. Answers to calls and questions are returned promptly and in a very friendly manner. Dr. Kunde was able to solve the root cause of a problem my son has suffered with for 3.5 years, that several other GI professionals have not been able to solve. I am very grateful for Dr. Kunde and his team!
in Phoenix |
Dr. Kunde had perfectly diagnosed the problem with my two year old daughter and did a successful treatment. We went to Dr.Kunde after the diagnosis from the previous practitioner failed. He listened to our problem very patiently and answered all our queries.
in Apex, NC |
My son has been a patient of Dr.Kunde's for over a year. His new diagnosis required a strict diet and 6 endoscopies. Dr.Kunde always made sure we understood the next step in the process. He would type out the instructions with me to make sure I understood. He didn't require unneeded office visits after scopes to get results. You can tell that he makes sure things run on time and he wants the patients and their families taken well care of. I wish more, if not all doctors worked like him.
in Wendell, NC |
Dr. Kunde is personable and knowledgeable. He makes parents and children feel comfortable while working with them to address their medical needs. Highly recommend.
Cary, NC |
Dr. Kunde and his staff are amazing!! Dr. Kunde was able to determine what is wrong with our daughter and did so with great bedside manner. Dr. Kunde's nurses are also terrific and do a fabulous job of going over his instructions and they quickly return phone calls. Highly recommend Dr. Kunde!!!
in Selma, NC |
Dr. Kunde is an amazing specialist, he takes the time to listen to my concerns and spends as much time as needed with my daughter. His staff is friendly and always willing to help with whatever issue is going on at that time. I would highly recommend Dr. Kunde
in Knightdale, NC |
Dr Kunde took great care of my baby girl. He was attentive and was very patient. He made sure that he found a solution to all of her problems. He is very personable as well as knowledgeable and we will recommend him to anyone. He knows what he is doing and we appreciate him greatly.
in Raleigh, NC |
My granddaughter was diagnosed with GERD. Has been under the care of Dr. Kunde, referred from the Wake Health Dept. After months of diet/medication we are finally seeing results of the two. We are thankful for the friendly and patient staff who have assisted the treatment and care. She was apprehensive before the procedure, but found relief with the kind words and sympathy of Wake Med/of course Dr. Kunde's staff at the Gastro Clinic. She's starting to feel like herself again, and is all smiles.
in Garner, NC |
Dr. Kunde did a procedure on my 2 year old son while in the hospital. I had several questions and Dr. Kunde answered my questions with confidence and made me feel confident that he knew what was going to be going on with my son. I was satisified with the outcome of my sons procedure and Dr. Kunde took time afterwards to explain what exactly he saw and what he did. I made a follow up appt. and Dr. Kunde was the very same in the doctors office as he was in the hospital. Very detail and informative
in Princeton, NC |
Dr.Kunde has been a life saver for my son. I wish every child with GI issues could meet him just one time. Dr.Kunde has cared for my son through 2 surgery's and several EGD. He truly cares for his patients.
in Angier, NC |
Dr Kunde is a wonderful doctor, and he has a great team with his nurse, medical assistant, and dietician. Dealing with a very sick 1 year old was tough, but they made it so much easier. I was very pleased with our experience with them.
Apex, NC |
Dr. Kunde is fantastic! We have seen many pediatric GI specialists in the past, and now we have found one that we will keep. Our son has a history of severe constipation. He recently swallowed a foreign object due to pica, and Dr. Kunde performed a colonoscopy and removed the item. He took our son's special needs into consideration, and he listened to me as a parent. He is going to now help our son with his constipation issues. I highly recommend him for the special needs population!
in Oxford, NC |
Dr. Kunde was wonderful! He helped our family with an issue we had been struggling with for almost a decade, and he did it with warmth, smiles, patience, and efficiency. He was very approachable, getting answers from our son that would have embarrassed him otherwise. I HIGHLY recommend him!
