Patient Comments (4)
Ruckersville, VA |
I went in for a second opinion consult. I found Dr. Gunther knowledgeable but very dismissive and condescending. He would cut me off when I would start to ask questions and not answer question he did not think relevant. Though he confirmed the initial doctor's diagnosis, I would not go back to see him.

Shoulder injury that started 4 mth ago. I could not do daily activities and was not sleeping due to the pain. After a less than 5 minute exam I was told my joints were loose to go to PT and it'd heal. I was to continue taking the anti-inflammatory medication GP had prescribed, told him I had 2 days left I was told PT could write me a refill for it (they cant). PT feels there is a more severe injury that was missed. Horrible experience! He didn't listen to anything I said.

Does not spend enough time with patient, and is very condescending. Appears in a rush all the time, takes less than 2 minutes with the patient. Does not inspire confidence or respect.

After seeing over 100 doctors for my husbands heart disease, 2 rounds of lymphoma cancer, shingles, and assortated other complications from those and being 74 I can personally say I have rarely seen this type of care and attention. Please take the time to meet him and treat yourself to the care you deserve. You are the consumer!
