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.

I have been going to this office and doctor for over 10 years now. Every part of my office visits has been very good. From the staff at the check-in window, in the examining room, to check-out, everyone is warm, friendly, and professional. The doctor sets this tone. As for Dr Hunzeker skills, he is one of the best dermatologists I have encountered. (I have visited about four in various parts of the US). His diagnostic sills are superb. He is thorough but practical. His surgery skills are remarkable. I have had a few surgeries and he has always done an excellent job. I trust this doctor. As for his bedside manner, it is unique. Dr Hunzeker walks into the examining room, makes eye contact, shakes my hand, listens to me, answers my questions and treats me as a partner in my skin care. He does not talk down to me or present an aura of arrogance like other doctors I have experienced. It is rare for a doctor to possess great skills and be personable. This is why I drive over an hour to see him and keep coming back.
