Dr. Bunchman is an excellent doctor who advocated for our daughter. His dedication to our daughter was never in question. He took the time to analyze her rare illness and past treatments and developed innovative and effective treatments not in the literature. I'd recommend Dr. Bunchman to anyone who has a child with a rare kidney illness.

I agree with the family in Virginia. I would NEVER take my child to this man! He thinks he is GOD and does not listen, has no compassion and is rude! He lied in his dictation about what was said/done at the clinic visits and was very threatening. He does not get along with the staff and would throw files at them. Very unprofessional! My child suffered not only physical issues but emotional damage from this doctor. I was told our hospital fired him - no surprise there! Stay away!

This man destroyed our lives and ripped our family apart based on false accusations - because his team neglectfully removed essential supplement my son depended upon, considering his prescription-grade formula. without any evidence whatsoever, apparently to cover up his team's mistakes and malpractice blamed me for the adverse effects caused by THEIR negligence. I would never advise any parent to put their child's health or life into this doctor's hands.
