Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Cunnar takes the time to really listen to what you have to say. He is very down to earth and asks relevant questions. I moved here from out of state leaving behind my internist of 40 years. I was prepared for a long search to find a doctor here that I felt comfortable with but it didn't take long at all. Finding Dr. Cunnar solved that dilemma.
Great experience from scheduling appointment thru exit. Office utilizes technology to streamline and allow convenient access to records. I've seen both Physicians and they are very personable with a 'contemporary' approach that still offers old school comfort. The service from big medical conglomerates had become discouraging over the years, but DFM puts the family back into medicine.
I was taken back at the appointed time. Had preliminary things done by a tech, like blood pressure , weight, med screening, right away. Only waited about 10 minutes once in the exam room, which is very short from other medical appointment experiences. Dr. Cunnar is friendly, courteous, compassionate, and thorough.
Dr Cunnar and Dr Holtzman are the nicest doctors I've ever been to! The entire office staff is friendly and inviting. If I could rate them with more stars I would!
Dr. Cunnar was affable, professional, and thorough. He seemed interested in my health and well-being vs. being in a hurry to get through the appointment and on to the next patient. I would definitely recommend.
always a positive experience with Dr. Cunnar
Awesome as always. Very relatable. Detailed - gets you in and out without feeling rushed. Definitely a recommend.
This Dr. is excellent, honest and great at diagnosis and treatment. I
Had a great visit. After turning 70 and avoiding doctors and physical exams for 35 years it was time for me to go. Dr Kunner gave me a thorough exam, gave advise, answered all questions, gave recommended shots and help schedule other services. Will definitely will be going back as needed, at least annually for exam.
Good personality, thorough, not pushy
Professional and friendly. The staff was helpful and friendly as well.
Dr. Cunnar rocks! He takes time to hear what you have to say and is very compassionate and thorough. Easy to get an appointment, simply book on line, or call. Great doctor.
Everything went perfect. Dr Cunnar answered all questions and the whole staff was very professional
Everything went well, as expected. I am a long-term patient. Dr Cunnar listens to the patient's concerns and addresses them with the latest medical techniques.
It was great!
Amazing doctor who cares.
Dr Cunnar and Karla are really great people to work with on keeping your health on track.
Efficient, yet very personal. I have been seeing Dr. Cunnar for many years. He has a lot of patients, yet it was clear that he knew who I was and my history even before he looked me up on the laptop he carries with him for efficient note-taking. He gets right to the point and doesn't waste any of his time, or mine.
I have been a patient of Dr Cunnar's for many years and continue to be impressed by the quality of care received.
Always outstanding. What a class act. A true example for all medical professionals. Thank you Dr. Cunnar.
Dr. Cunnar is one of the view doctors that actually listens to his patients. I appreciate this and know he will give me the best advice for my health.
Most professional and courteous physician I've been to. The wait was short and he made the meeting extremely comfortable and treatment painless. I would recommend Dr. Cunnar and his office staff to anyone looking for a personal physician or family doctor.
Dr. Cunnar is amazingly courteous, friendly, and above all quick. His medical knowledge is both extensive and again, fast. His answers seem to be right at the tip of his fingers and he is great at giving personal advice and not tacking on services you do not need. Also, his ability to give a vaccination shot quickly and painlessly is probably unparalleled.
Dr. Cunnar is a very bright and personable doctor who shows genuine compassion and communicates well with his patients. We have trusted our family's care to him for many years.
He's a great find. Wouldn't trade him!
It was amazing!!!...he is so down to earth
Everything was handled well and efficiently, by the office staff, nurse and doctor. I've been seeing Dr. Cunnar for years, so the focus was routine. I appreciate Dr. Cunnar guiding me to participate in my health decisions rather than just setting out one plan of treatment.
All of the staff was pleasant. The Dr. Actually cares and listened to all you had to tell him. I made the right choice for a new doctor.
my visit at dr. cunnars office was pleasant and adequate. the facility/office was a little outdated and clinic-like. the staff was professional and helpful.
Awesome doctor have been patient for years.
Dr. Cunnar is an amazing physicial, he was very observant and it helped him in diagnosing my problems. He actually took the time and sat with me, he really listened. That is not a quality found in most physicians these days. i would highly recommend him!!
I really like him-very knowledgable too!
Our experience with our first visit with Dr. Cunnar was excellent. My wife and I were favorably impressed with his truthfullnes, candor and presence. We appreciate his values, directness and integrity. Vivian and I would recommend him highly to our family, friends and neighbors. He appreciates his patients,and we are thankful that we have chosen Dr. Cunnar as our physician.
OK going to the doctor is purposeful. My experience was great. I was pleased with Dr. Cunnar's approach, friendliness and his listening skills. The whole process was user friendly and with my busy schedule, the process was streamlined and efficient. Thank you
I hadn't been to a doctor in years, and decided it was about time I did. I based my choice mainly on other reviews and was not disappointed. Dr. Cunnar really understands the patient -- and how men are generally not inclined to visit a doctor on a regular basis. I'll be back again.
The long wait time had to do with an emergency and is not typical of the office. I wouldn't lower my rating of this physician!
Excellent care! Accurate medical diagnosis and treatment!
I thought it went well. I would highly recommend him to other people looking for a new doctor.
Because of an emergency the wait time was longer than usual. I would highly recommend Dr. Cunnar. His ability to put you at ease and the time he took to go over my information as a new patient was definitely a plus.
Worth the drive from Wheaton!
Great doctor! Great experience! Friendly,and attentive. I will be making Dr.Cunnar,my primary care doctor.
He is great and has a nice sense of humor!
As a first time patient, he really took the time to talk through my history and get to know me. I was very pleased with my first visit!
Great doctor! Am glad I came across him. I see him as being my family doc for a long time!
Very professional, innovative, personable, and thorough. Conservative treatment although goes over options and willing to work with you if you want to go further. On top of technology and current medicine. Highly recommended!
The office seemed to run well, my wait time was minimal and the doc listened, checked me out asking questions that I though were appropriate for the reason of my visit, and offered a course of treatment as i would expect. All in all a good visit.
He takes his time with you and really cares. Plus, love the fact he makes use of social media and new technology to make it easier to communicate and share information.
Appreciated the time he took and his conservative approach to diagnosis and treatment, but was supportive of a more aggressive path if I wanted it. He definitely cared about my history and what was really going on!
