Dr. Jeffrey Unger is THE MOST THOROUGH PHYSICIAN I known. He checks every test result completely and his FOLLOW UP is amazing. Dr. Unger really listens and asks specific questions about my condition. I am extremely pleased with his bedside mannerand awe-inspiring capability as a specialist. (I have been under Dr. Unger's care for 8 years) His OFFICE STAFF reflects Dr. Unger's thoroughness, are extremely courteous & professional; it is a pleasure to deal with them.

Both the office staff and Dr. Unger were pleasant. I barely sat down when I was called in to the back and the doctor joined me within minutes. I felt very comfortable and appreciated that he provided alternatives.

The visit was outstanding. Unfortunately, the clerical paperwork took longer than the exam. A sign of the times and a necessary evil in our society.
