Patient Comments (4)
I would never recommend this excuse for a doctor, even my grandmother who has seen him for years says things like "I tell him what I need and he gives it to me." Hes just a 'candy' doctor. I was seen under the table through my grandmothers appointments with this "Dr." He gave me Lexapro and Zyprexa as a 12 year old and it destroyed my brain. I was told that Zyprexa was a sleeping pill for my insomnia, obviously this is NOT what Zyprexa is used for. I am taking legal action against him.

I have been going to him for over a yr. at the mission Viejo. I ' m taking Pristig. I was out of town and forgot them. On Xmas eve,I started going thru withdrawals severe crying and body aches. I just needed 5 Pristig. to get me thru the holidays . I called and got the answering service. She was very empathic and proactive, However, the way the m.d.s system is set up ; there is no psychatric. Coverage. NEVER RECEIVED. A CALL UNTIL 5 DAYS LATERFROM HIS STAFF.HE DOESN't care. Find another M.d.

Dr. Kunam is a very busy doctor that does his best to keep up with all of us. I do think he cares, more then most, he will at least listen to you and listen to what you have to say. Before you knock him, try dealing with these other doctors.....you will be back

During one of my first visits on a Saturday morning he started to doze off asleep. When expressing concerns about paying for medications he assured me that it was generic and cheap at Costco even without insurance. I checked the prices at several stores... Not cheap. Before starting a new medicine, asked before leaving if there were any risks. He said no. The pharmacy medicine readout listed several risks, and a couple risks were experienced. Not shy about prescribing, even without diagnosis.
