I feel lucky I can develop a rapport with patients over the years. I see them once or twice a year and get to know them over time, which helps me provide better care if problems arise.

Dr. Hunzeker is the best dermatologist I've ever been to. (I've been to 4 since 2013). He explains everything he is going to do and then does it very well. He and his staff are the best!

Dr Hunzeker and his staff are wonderful. The laser process was quick and relatively pain free. He also removed a growth off my face with skill and grace. My results are beyond what I imagined and will certainly be back! Worth the trip from the DC metro area!

Dr. Hunzeker is the best skin doctor around. I had skin cancer and he had to reconstruct my nose and you would never know I even had surgery. I moved to South Carolina since then. I had another skin area that I knew had to be removed. I called doctors here but there was none who compared to him. I called is office and the staff he is was great, they worked with my schedule and I drove back to PA to see him and he removed it. Again you can not see where he removed it. He is amazing. I will go no where else. It was worth the 9 hour drive!

Excellent and experienced physician. He was quick to assess and treat my 6 year old son's facial wound. He took cultures and promptly made the appropriate changes in treatment. My son was excited to return for a follow-up visit. His staff is friendly and inviting and made my children feel welcomed. Would definitely recommend!

The staff was most friendly and curtious. They actually filled out most of the paperwork for us. The facility was very up to date with the latest technology and very clean. We were most happy with our first appointment and most satisfied with our choice of Dr. Hunzeker.
