      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.

      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.

      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

      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!

      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.
