5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Extremely Happy 45 Year Old Who Had a Tummy Tuck! - Fort Worth, TX

Dr. Kunkel has an awesome bedside manner and is an excellent doctor. He takes the time to explain the procedure, what to expect, and what his expectations are from the surgery. I was very comfortable putting my surgery in his very capable hands. His staff at the office are also some of the best I have encountered. They have all taken the time to answer questions and make me feel like I am a person and not just another patient. I would recommend Dr. Kunkel and his office to anyone!

25 / 5'8" / 130lbs 34A Breast Augmentation Too 397cc Smooth Round Silicone Natrelle Implants - Fort Worth, TX

He is very nice, and knowledgeable on what he will be doing. He gives his personal opinion and for me this was very important and something i requested as I was unsure what size implant would look natural on my body frame. He was extremely pleasant on surgery day, made me feel very comfortable and in good hands.

From a "B" Cup to a "D" Cup; Wish I'd Done It Sooner. Fort Worth, TX

Dr. Kunkel was very friendly and he answered all of my questions. He took what I had described and made it a reality. He is a very personable doctor and I felt that he really cared about my well-being before, during, and after surgery.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Tummy tuck w/ MR- Fort Worth, TX

Great consult! Everyone was so helpful! So far the surgery coordinator has been helpful, always gets back with me promptly Dr. Kunkle has a great demeanor. He's very patient and offers ample explanation. He also seems very knowledgeable and takes a good deal of interest in his work , his patients. Before the surgery began, at least 3 of the hospital staff were carrying on about how great of a surgeon he was to work with and that he does the best work, as modeled by some of their coworkers that have had procedures by him. Would absolutely recommend using his services.

5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

Upper and Lower Eyelids

Highly recommend him!!!!! He answered any and all questions; dedicated as much time to me as I needed. He called my home the evening of my procedure to check on me.
