OU Physicians Patient Feb 4, 2020

I have never used OU medical for any services. I have recently been diagnosed with a remain tumor and I have never felt respected and cared for like I have with OU. Generally you are just a number but I have never felt that way. Always prompt return of phone calls or setting up further appointments. I figured getting a referral for a neurosurgeon would be a head ache but it only took a week and everyone I spoke to along the way was very helpful and caring.

OU Physicians Patient Feb 4, 2020

Dr Dunn, I would like to thank you for taking your time to educate my family and I regarding my surgical procedure and aftercare. I am most grateful how the end results of my surgical scaring which appear almost seamless and now can't wait for my hair to grow back completely which will make my scar less visible. If only he was available in 2017 when I had to go through the same or similar procedures and his services were nothing compare to _____...Your continued hospitality and knowledge puts you on top of others! Thanks again! Dr. Dunn

The wait time was excessive. We got to the office 30 minutes early for a 12:30 appointment and handed in the initial paperwork immediately, as we had completed it the night before. We actually didn't get to see the doctor until 1:30, which I think was too long.
