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).

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.

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.

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. Afternot 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.

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 directivesthat address the treatment and resolution of the medical condition. He is unconditionally recommended.

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 medicationand it worked like a charm. Would strongly recommend this doctor!

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 wholebody 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 toaddress 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.

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 bestsolve 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, hopingfor 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 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 wentso 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.
