Dr. Dunn was really cool and easy to talk to. I needed to make a last minute appointment and she wasavailable which was good. But her staff was so off putting. Her medical assistant didn't introduce herself and asked me personal questions that she jotted down on a folded up piece of paper that she had been writing other patient information on. Obviously she was going to input that stuff into my chart at some point but invest in a tablet or something to write stuff down on. I did not feel comfortable with anyone on the staff aside from the doctor and I don't know if I want to go back.

First — the actual care providers at this practice are wonderful, caring, and beyond competent. However, the billing officemakes seeing one of these great doctors a terrible experience. I have been to the practice three times. The first time should have been covered in full by my insurance, and I left the office thinking that was the case. Four months later, I got a voicemail saying I was about to be sent to collections over an unpaid bill. Not only did no one in the billing office tell me that I didn't get the service I thought I did, but my bill was sent to the wrong address (yes, that is a HIPAA violation), so I didn't even know it existed. After a lot of back-and-forth, one of the wonderful doctors stepped in and set things right. I went back because of that wonderful doctor. But now, after my third visit, I am dealing with yet another issue. The billing office submitted my claim using the wrong diagnostic code (as confirmed by my insurance), which generated a bill for significantly more than I should actually have to pay. I am currently trying to get the billing office to fix the mistake. As of today, the billing office has stopped responding to me. Again, the doctors are great. But I would advise anyone to steer clear of this practice simply to avoid having to deal with the billing department.

I was a little nervous to trust Zocdoc reviews after my first experience was extremely below average but I needed to get in to see Dr. Dunn on a same day appointment so my options were slim. I was SO grateful that all of her reviews were actually accurate. She was very sweet and made me feel extremely comfortable. 10/10 would go again.

I have been looking for a good Gynecologist for a while. The staff was immediately welcoming and friendly. Dr. Dunn was very personable, approachable, friendly and knowledgeable. I immediately felt like I was in good hands. I have finally found a provider I feel 100% comfortable with. I will be moving to Chicago soon so Dr. Dunn will definitely be my provider of choice.

Great doctor, made me very comfortable as a new patient. If the doctors office visit was just based off of the doctor she would get 10/5 stars. The only negative I witnessed was the medical assistant staff was not very kind to the patients, and I can see how some of the other reviews that discuss their rudeness could be correct.

Dr. Dunn was very friendly, accommodating and made sure to give me the opportunity to answer any questions I had. Her office staff notified me in advance that arriving early for my appointment (if at all possible) would provide me the best experience since Dr. Dunn was going to have to adjust her schedule to accommodate a patient who was in labor. This was extremely courteous of them and I appreciated them going above and beyond to keep me informed.

Dr. Dunn is an EXCELLENT physician. I’ve been to many gynes and I’ve finally found mine! She was patient, attentive, non-judgmental, and a pleasure to visit with. Other doctors have been dismissive of symptoms I’ve described and she was dedicated to making sure I left my appointment without a single concern. She is a genuine physician and highly recommended. The PA was also excellent as well. Overall, great experience.

Getting there for the first time was pretty confusing with the elevators and the suite actually being 1202 (or maybe it was 1201) instead of 1200. But overall the front member staffs were very nice and efficient and Dr. Dunn was amazing. So patient and I felt very comfortable sharing everything with her. Very caring, patient, and motherly. I felt like she cared and she did by asking me questions and telling me what she us doing step by step every way of the visit. High recommend and will be coming back myself.
