Dr Bunim was so much more knowledgeable and helpful in caring about what was going on with me and taking the right steps to address it. His assistant was amazing in being able to fit me in for an endoscopy quickly, get my diagnostic procedures covered by Insurance, and not have me wait weeks. My experience with Dr Bunim has made me want to switch my PCP and GYN to WPH
