I have been a patient of Dr. Gunn's for over 18 years, and am writing this review not only as as a patient, but as a knowledgeable healthcare administration professional with several years' experience in providing managment consulting services to medical practices. While no practice is perfect, this approximates perfection better than any I've ever seen and evaluated (which is a lot).

The patient reviewers who reported that they received unnecessary, expensive tests failed to recognize there are plenty of patients whose lives have been saved as a result of such testing. I, in fact, was one of those patients. My condition had been undiagnosed by my family practice physician, because unlike Dr. Gunn, he follows conventional medical protocol which would not indicate doing such tests on someone with my health profile. Fortunately, I was able to make changes and receive treatment that turned my situation around in time.

With regard to the GunnTowbin Center staff, I have found them to be very competent, professional and pleasant. I am familiar with the mature, dark haired lady who was being criticized in a couple of the reviews. Throughout the years I have known her to be very kind, respectful and professional. She is a little bit introverted and shy which unfortunately was misconstrued as something else.

It is worth mentioning that as the practice has expanded there has been a correlating diminishment in the level of excellence, as Dr. Gunn's presence and leadership has receded. I would strongly recommend that the GunnTowbin Center focus on strategies to get back to, and maintain the unmatched high standards that Dr. Gunn is known for. With that being said, this practice is still head and shoulders (and then some) above all the others in the industry. I can also tell you (without naming names) that plenty of female physicians, and the wives of male physicians in the community are patients of the GunnTowbin Center because all in all, they are the absolute best!

Front desk staff are not friendly & make you feel like you are wasting their time. Doctor is also cold. Treats nurses like they are incapable. Perhaps this is why the reception area people treat the patients the same way. They all make you feel like they are doing you a favor but they should keep in mind without patients, they would all be out of a job. In today's economy, they should all be & let deserving people have their jobs.

Lovely, clean office. Know why? You're paying for it! And I mean PAYING for it.

I've gone to Dr. Gunn for years and I've always felt really safe in his hands. My family has a long and troubling history with cancers. On the one hand, I like that he's preemptive in administering tests vs. being reactive to cancer actually poppong up, BUT... I've never *had* cancer, I'm 31 so kinda young (right? or is that old now? hahaha), and after having to pay an additional $500 for lab tests, results, ultrasounds, etc last year only to be given a clean bill of healt AGAIN makes me feel like he sees my medical history, but also sees dollar signs. I mean, I pay $400 a month just for medical coverage. I should NOT have to come out of pocket that much for my annual plus cancer screening. My blood work (standard physical stuff - cholestorol, blood sugar [I think], triglycerides, etc.) was $170 alone. This could just as easily have been my insurance vs. Dr Gunn, though.

I have only felt one member of the staff was a snot, and that's the lady you pay and set up another appointment with. She's a brunette with glasses, and she's older, which makes her behavior all the more odd to me. I expect that smarmy behavior from some 20 year old, not a grown woman who should know better. All other staff members are sweet, call you by your first name, and treat you well.

There are a lot of extra "fancy" services that this practice offers that aren't really necessary, but they can be interesting if you're willing to spend the $$$ or you have an insurance company that's awesome enough to cover the costs for you. Dr. K is awesome, and she handles the WOW physical. I was also told I was on the high end of normal body weight (150 at 5'7"), which I found odd, but I've lost weight now so whatevs.

All in all, I feel that this is a good practice with lots of knowledgeable staff. Dr. Gunn is by far one of the very best doctors I've ever seen, but I do feel that his care is also tied to his profits. He's more willing to give you tests you may or may not need that will give him more money, but I have always felt that he was attentive, listened to my concerns, and was willing to spend time with me -- that in and of itself is pretty priceless.

Pros: Generally warm staff, Dr. Gunn is GREAT

Cons: $$$$$, feel like I get charged for the prettiness

... who has had such a horrible experience. Safe to say I hate everything about this place.

The "ladies" at the front desk... the first word that comes to mind is snarky. They spoke to me like I was a moron and if I had any questions, forget it. One girl rolled her eyes at me when I tried to set up a return visit! Well maybe if she wasn't speaking so fast and in a tone so low only dogs could hear it, I wouldn't have had to ask her to repeat herself. My bad.

I was a patient there for 5 years until I finally realized they were just out to make a buck off me by running tests I didn't need and then never really resolving any medical issues I had. They once ordered a "body scan" on me... It's a glorified body fat test that my bathroom scale does for me for FREE every morning (it's about that accurate too). If they spent the 5 minutes it took to administer the test to explain to me accurately and thoroughly what it REALLY was, I would've skipped it, but at the Gunn Center, they don't bother letting their younger patients know, who might not realize it, that you don't HAVE to have the tests they order. Just remember that if you DON'T, they will send you a nice letter telling you to eff off and never return to their office. Then I had to pay for an office visit to come back and hear the results. Which, I'm sorry, were wrong. The doctor told me I was borderline obese (former athlete, 5'2", 150 pounds with DD breasts) and that if I lost 5 pounds I would be back in the healthy range. Since when is 5 pounds the difference between obese and healthy?

This place is a joke. With all their frilly "vaginas are beautiful" language, their marble countertops, and b*tchy staff, I can't believe I stayed there as long as I did. Unless you want to spend a LOT of money on tests you don't need or just want to overpay for the tests you do, you like waiting an eternity to be seen, and you don't mind being treated like an imbicile, stay as far away from this place as you can.

Pros: Absolutley nothing. Only got 1 star cuz I couldn't give a 0.

Cons: All about the $$$$ to these people!

.

ESPECIALLY DO NOT GO IF YOU HAVE A COMPLEX MEDICAL HISTORY--THAT ARE CHALLENGING AND REQUIRE BEYOND AVERAGE PATIENT NEEDS.

DR. TOWBIN LIKES THE EASY, QUICK PATIENTS WHO CAN AFFORD HER WOW, ETC. SERVICES. OBVIOUS EXPENSIVE MARKETING AND HAND ON DOORKNOB SYNDROME. DON'T GO!

BEWARE THE GATEKEEPER IN CHARGE OF THE FRONT DESK! HORRIBLE PUBLIC RELATIONS!

Pros: very nice medical assitants-- but they are not NURSES

Cons: Profit more than patient oriented

My experience is wonderful! Beautiful offices, and great staff. After just one visit the Dr. diagnosed a thyroid disorder. I had been complaining to my previous Dr. for over 2 years and they basically said "it's your age"! Well I can say I feel fantastic thanks to Dr. Towbin. I highly reccomend this group!

This is the worst doctors office I have visited. The front office personal act as a snob, they are better than you are.

The office over charge and tries to charge for procedures not even performed on you.

The front office personal will not recognize you or follow up if there is a delay with the appoint.

Also, will charge you just for coming in to pick up lab result...."it is considered an office visit"

If you do go there - have things in writting on what is done, and have them send you the lab results in the mail.

Best advice...JUST STAY AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
