Dr. D'Cunha is spectacular, straight forward and always very concerned. We live in Oregon and if there are any concerns about my health. He will go out of his way to see me immediately upon my arrival or put us into the procedures needed. He is genuinely concerned and caring for my health and wellness.

I was glad to see this provider today since he was the one who did my surgery. He had an emergency on my last visit so I had to see his associate. It's always nice seeing the provider that makes you well one year after your surgery .

My Son and I were very favorably impressed with Dr. Dcunha. His knowledge, demeanor and interaction with his staff and with us, gave us a most gratifying sense of confidence that we were in the right hands for the care that will be required.

I realize how busy a surgeon can be and wonder if he is actually given time to enjoy his existence. The value of a competent man in this field is incalculable and I hope that enough reward and downtime are available while he is young enough to enjoy them.
