Verified Patient Reviews
This was the second time when I went to see Doctor Stanley Bunas and both appointments were really nice. Amazing communication! All of my worries gone, the doctor is very professional and I am very grateful for his care.
Super nice and super easy to talk to!
What I respect is that I didn't feel rushed during the visit. Dr Bunas didn't just prescribe medication, he is trying to get to the bottom of the cause of my condition. Highly recommended.
Told me every step of the procedure he was doing. A very caring doctor!
Dr. Bunas was funny, kind, and efficient. Would recommend to others
The most knowledgeable doctor. He diagnosed and explained every detail concisely and with experience. I was amazed at how well he was able to help me.
The visit to Dr.Bunas was very pleasant one, in spite of myself having some skin rash related issues. He has good sense of humour and examined thoroughly my problem. He also patiently answered our questions. Very happy to have taken Dr. Bunas for my dermatology appointment.
Great apt, dr bunas was straight to the point and answered all my questions! He is a fantastic doctor
Dr Bunas as always,, very professional, however his assistant needs to improve her people skills,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
Dr. Bunas was very informative, professional, & gave me a couple of different options for treatment. I was a little disappointed we couldn't take care of what would be a simple procedure the same day.
Dr. Bunas was very polite and professional. His staff on the other hand was horrible!!!! She was not pleasant at all, she snarled upon arriving and giving 2nd time my personal information in which I submitted online prior to appointment. After not receiving any help at all from Dr. Bunas, he made a statement that was quite alarming to me but I kept a professional attitude and said nothing at all. Basically, he does not have patients of black ethnic background and stated most of his clients were white or asian and therefore, any medication he would give me for the reason I stressed several times, would not work for me because of the color of my skin. Upon walking out, his front desk was not polite, turned their backs as we left the office.
I truly appreciate Dr Bunas and his office staff for efficiently handling my appointment in a succinct manner and fully attentive to my concerns during recent office visit.
Dr Bunas is great. He gives you the time you need and is thorough.
Dr. Bunas is an excellent physician- highly experienced, competent, and caring. He is always thorough in his examinations and diagnoses. In addition, he spends more than adequate time with the patient and provides the explanations and directives that address the treatment and resolution of the medical condition. He is unconditionally recommended.
Dr. Bunas is very professional and knowledgeable in his practice.
We forgot to go over shampoo treatment schedule.
I made my appointment probably 4 hours prior to the time as a brand new patient. I was seen immediately, he was kind, knowledgeable, and answered ten years worth of dermatological questions in a half an hour visit. Checked my whole body for skin cancer moles, fixed a blood blister on my face I have had since I was 12, and provided me with his personal number to send my medical history to. Amazing experience and I am happy to say that I already was able to recommend someone else here!
He was very kind, and thorough, during the office visit. he didn't rush me or give me easy answers that would get me out the door quick. I brought up one concern, and he patiently asked questions and did tests to address it; i brought up a second concern and he immediately went to grab resources for and ask questions about that concern, even though he hadn't planned for it nor expected it (I did not specify it when I made the appointment. I would recommend this dermatologist, and probably will return.
Always thorough and efficient. Assistants and staff friendly and professional
He is caring and knowledgable. I went there after lots of visits to my podiatrist and Dr. Bunas was just right on the first visit.
He made sure to fully understand my history of acne to fully asses the causes of my current issue. There was an assistant present the entire time taking notes as well. He made a rough road map of how to best solve the issue and told me what alternative medicines I could use if the prescribed ones were too expensive. Will be going back.
I m very disappointed with the diagnosis. He haven't done any kind of tests to understand the problem and presuming multiple problems. As many pointed on Yelp, he just want to see the patients multiple times for revenue. I ll never go to him ever again.
Already have my next appointment booked. Really liked that he was asking lots of questions trying to get to the real root of why my acne is still here even in my mid-20's. Going to try out some new things, hoping for some progress but he told me it was going to take time-nothing happens overnight. He also had someone else in the room taking notes as he was talking so that for next time they got everything we chatted about. Very friendly, makes you feel comfortable. Excited to see how things go!!
Dr Bunas is very professional and knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend him to others.
Dr Bunas is the best! I've been going to him for years. Highly recommend.
Very pleasant experience. Most highly recommend!
Maybe not for me! i had too simple an issue for a doc like him.
I felt very comfortable at the office. Dr. Bunas and his staff are informative and professional. Dr. Bunas walked me through options for treatment and told me which would be covered under insurance and which wouldn't. Happy I found this Derm!
Was great, just like every other time!
The doctor is dismissive of any problems that don't posses an immediate health risk. Ridiculously long wait times in the office every time I've been there.
Very informative of all my options and what insurance covers! Pleasant, humerus, and was able to remove my mole on my first visit!!
I went to see Dr. Bunas for an eyebrow skin issue. He is so nice and patient to explain to me every detail, show me medical illustrations, and provide various solutions with reasons and impacts. I am very impressed by his professional expertise. I definitely recommend Dr. Bunas to other patients.
He was very knowledgable, thorough and polite. Very efficient with diagnosis and treatment.
Dr Bunas is excellent, attentive, listens and confirms all what I said, evaluated and explained his diagnosis, and the treatment. He also explained the concerns about me not keeping the daily treatment schedule due my mobile and tight schedule. He prescribed alternative medicine when I would be travelling. He diagnosed and treated my condition the first time itself. The condition did return again in about a year(which he had mentioned he was afraid of), but has not recurred since the second visit. Awesome doctor, friendly staff, very respectful to patient privacy(never failed to get consent).
Dr. Bunas is very pleasant. I have been a patient for about 9 years. He is pretty thorough in his examinations and note taking.
I can't really say much because today is my first day but the first visit was not bad. I will keep update.
Extremely knowledgeable and took his time to understand every detail.
Dr Bunas was professional, knowledgeable and showed a real desire to help with a somewhat perplexing and difficult problem, that other doctors have tried and failed to cure. He gave me detailed instructions on how to follow-up and even went so far as to assure me that if he couldn't help, he'd make sure he'd find the person who could. If recommend him highly.
Whenever I meet this doctor, the way they care about patients and ask their situation, previous history etc. is highly appreciated.
Has been a wonderful experience with Dr Bunas. He is a very experienced doctor and I can tell that easily from the way he was able to quickly and accurately figure out what was going on with me. Followed his medication and it worked like a charm. Would strongly recommend this doctor!
To the point, informative, knowledgable, personable, and professional.
Dr. Bunas was nice and professional, answered all my questions patiently and made sure I don't suffer any discomfort during the procedure.
Very nice manner. Spent time to discuss issues and answer any questions. Very thorough and informative
Experienced professional clinician, great exam skills and most importantly excellent educational skills for his patients'
I adore Stanley Bunas, he has the best sense of humor out of all doctors in the land. As an aside he also knows his business and can help quickly and efficiently with good outcome!
Very upset with Dr Bunas n lack of concern n compassion for issues appt was made for. Dr Bunas had no problem taking money for those 2 appts booked back to back n basically told us was out of time n he had other patients. But suggested to make a follow-up appointment with him...why u didn't even perform any tests Your actions of concern n compassion r a joke. I feel totally ripped off n I'm sure I was. Wouldn't recommend you never!
I walked in wanting to address four specific issues. Two were handled right there; appointment made for #3 next. Didn't expect anything to be done yet, but half of my problems were solved on introductory visit. Going to enjoy getting the rest of my issues resolved.
He is the best doctor, inquired about the issues very detailed, seen the previous records and explained very detail on the problems and given the detailed instructions. I highly recommend you to go to this doctor.
Very warm, thorough and communicative and reassuring. A completely positive experience.
overall best experience, everyone was very welcoming and Dr. Bunas couldn't have been more helpful, he actually cares and enjoys his job.
Dr. Bunas cured my acne in less than a month! He definitely knows what he is doing and is super friendly.
Excellent - I would never think of going to another dermatologist.
Great as usual.
The Best in the Northwest!!! Highly recommend.:) Thank you Dr. Bunas and staff for all your awesomeness!!!
I have been trying to find a dermatologist for quite some time and I loved Dr. Bunas! He is friendly and professional. He explains things very well and made me comfortable by talking to me throughout a surgery to distract me. I would recommend him highly to anyone looking for a dermatologist in the area.
Very professional, takes time to listen and address any concerns. Dr. Bunas is genuinely concerned with the wellness of your skin. The front desk and nurses are friendly. The office is on the top floor of the building which can be accessed through outdoor stairs or an elevator.
Wow.. I was able to make my appointment online at 2am.. and meet with the doc at 2pm that day. LOVE THAT. Dr. Bunas was awesome.. to the point, efficient, knows his stuff clearly.
Very professional and welcoming. Listens to patient well and explains issues/solution. Highly recommended!!!
Very efficient and a good communicator. Keeps good records for comparison across appointments.
Always pleasant but painful :-)
It was great. I was in and out super quick and he was very thorough.
I had a very disappointing experience with Dr. Bunas. He was rushing me through my first (and only) appointment and I felt like he absolutely wasn't even listening to me. I would never recommend him.
Short and sweet.
I'm a little disappointed that by having age spots on my arms, hands and face "frozen" resulted in multiple dark burn spots. It has eliminated the possible of wearing short selves and sleeveless tops due to being embarrassed due to the multiple brown spots. Unfortunately they may or may not ever fade. I believe that the dark spots were caused by the over processing as the spots that are prominent developed large water blisters.??
When I arrived for my appointment I was greeted warmly and felt welcomed. I experienced a very short wait time, five minutes or less. When Dr. Bunas consulted with me, he combined professionalism, experience and humor which contributed to what I would consider superb bedside manners. Another thing I truly appreciated about Dr. Bunas is he actually took the time to listen to my concerns and then explained his diagnosis in way that was easy for me to comprehend, understand. I think the only down side was his assistant was very attractive so I found myself fumbling on my words from time to time. Overall, I would recommend this doctor to my family and friends. Should I need a dermatologist again in the future, Dr. Bunas will be my go to guy. Time for some fun!
He was very organized, he asked how many issues I wanted to talk about to day up front. He explained what he saw and what the thought might be the causes I'll definitely be back and will recommend him to friends!
Staff is friendly and professional. In and out of the office very efficiently. Definitely recommended.
He was very organized, he asked how many issues I wanted to talk about to day up front. He took a good history. He did a thorough examination. He explained what he saw and what the thought might be the causes. He wrote down that information for me so I didn't have to remember it or take notes. He told me what to look up on the internet so I could get more information. He also has a silly sense of humor which I find endearing. I will definitely go back to him, and I will recommend my friends to him.
Dr. Bunas knows his stuff! He is very good about explaining things in lay mans terms. I have a recurring issue, and he talked with me about preventative measures, which other Doctors have not done in the past.
I have to say after 2 high recommendations from people at work, I was very disappointed. I drove over an hour for my appointment, and I was with the doctor for 15-20 minutes. I had arrived 15 minutes early even after encountering bad traffic to finish up paperwork, I was only in the waiting room for about 5-10 minutes. However, mine was the last appointment of the day and I felt like everyone's top priority was going home. The doctor seemed very distracted, asking me similar questions repeatedly. He was not very forthcoming with information regarding the reasons why I was there in the first place. This was not what I had expected at all.
I love this office! I look forward to my next appointment and think they are all simply the 425 BEST! *****
Professional staff, Dr. Bunas was very attentive to all questions and answered all with a simplistic explanation that was easily understood.
Dr. Bunas took the time to ask me questions and have a conversation with me about treatment options. He also answered all my questions.
Wonderful! I knew I called the right place as soon as I called and spoke with a warm and friendly voice to make my first appointment. :) 5 stars to Doctor and Staff! *****A+ Thank You!
Pleasant staff. Little or no wait in the lobby. Would definitely recommend Stanley Bunas and staff.
personable, professional, knowledgeable. in and out in about 30 minutes. staff was also personable, professional and knowledgeable. will use him again and would recommend him to others.
Dr. Bunas is very professional and caring for patient. He patiently explains the symptoms to me and how an operation would work. I'd recommend Dr. Bunas to others.
Excellent communication. Explained everything clearly.
His staff is wonderful, everyone has been very, very nice to me. They're personable, very friendly, and Dr. Bunas is very friendly and thorough.
Dr. Bunas did a great job. Quickly listened to my symptoms, assessed the effected areas and provided me with feedback as he went. Prescribed some medication and asked to see me in 3 weeks to reassess. Pretty much exactly how I'd like my appointment to go. The PA/Nurse was also excellent at her job with a good attitude and personality. I'd definetely recommend Dr. Bunas' office...if the treatment works ;-)
Not sure. I didn't like how they handled my bill.
Dr Bunas was wonderful. He explained everything in details and after the procedure he even painted a picture and told me what he did.
Always a pleasure.
Friendly office reception, prompt appointment time. It was my first appointment and Dr. Bunas seems very knowledgeable. He, along with his assistant, were both very kind and professional.
He really spent a lot if time asking questions and hearing my concern. It was a great visit! Hope I can see the best result!
The doctor did not rush. Did a complete exam. Answered all questions.
Dr. Bunas was very friendly and very informative.
Great doctor! Takes his time and very friendly. Does not rush you and examins all possibilities! Highly recommend him and will be coming back for my follow up.
Awesome!! he is very friendly, asked each detail about my problem and products which i am using in past. I would prefer to go again and again!!!!!
Very professional and thorough. I will definitely return for his services!
Dr. Bunas was awesome. He took the time to thoroughly discuss my dermatological concerns and patiently answered all of questions. My entire family will be having our annual dermatology check ups with Dr. Bunas. The entire staff was excellent too. Highly recommend!
He is a consummate professional, clearly knows his stuff, and gave me a very detailed treatment plan. He included information regarding all possible side effects for medication that he prescribed, and gave me as much time as I needed for questions. Very attentive listener, and I look forward to visiting with Dr. Bunas again.
It's wonderful. Docotor Bunas is very caring, patient and humorous.
I was very impressed!
An experienced professional with a studied eye for the skin.
The doctor is easy to work with :)
