Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Hernia repair complications
Had a hernia repair done about 2 1/2 years ago. Recovery was horrible. I have never been the same since. Dr. Unger was always very accessible and professional, And his staff was always great. I don’t know how the outcome could’ve been so poor. Regret it everyday.

I am happy with Dr. Unger because everything he did works perfectly. All the doctors I go to recommended it to me as I am in the best hands. My wife was also operated by him some years ago without any complications.

It was nice and I understood the Doctor when he told me about my follow up in his office to remove stitches from my arm. He was very concern about he was removing them so I couldn’t fill to much pain. He was very gentle. He also told me how to keep it clean and when to not wrap no more. I will recommend him to my family and friends anytime. THANK YOU DOC

Once again, I so appreciated Dr. Unger's time and concern; he reassured me and my husband that my issue was resolving nicely. And, while I brought a copy of my latest scans, it wasn't necessary because he had accessed my reports on MyChart!
