Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Dunn "I have been fortunate enough to build an excellent reputation not only regarding the success of my clinical and surgical results, but also regarding my very conservative approach to spinal disorders. I strive to have an approachable personality and "bedside manner" because I emphasize patient communication to facilitate clear understanding of the patient's diagnosis, prognosis and treatment options, as well as putting my patients at ease regarding their condition."

I didn’t actually get seen by Dr. Dunn, I think I was seen by another physician I think he is a little younger than Dr Dunn, but he took care of what I needed for now. So I’m just scheduling now the referrals given hopefully I’ll get some good results.’
