Dr. Munteen is an excellent Doctor. She isn't pushy and aggressive which I appreciate. it was my first visit with her, but I feel like she will let me drive my healthcare and be a "partner" with me. I am hopeful she will be understanding regarding my unique issues.

She was excellent! This was the best overall exam I've had in the past 30 years. __Others have not responded to my questions and for the most part left me in the dark about my diagnosis--what to do or what to expect.

She's very abrupt. Wasn't sympathetic to my pain needs. I felt like she wanted to cram more medication down my throat. She didn't seem to care about my fatigue or problems working, or trying to complete school. She was however, very thorough with the physical part of the examination.

This was my initial visit with Dr. Muntean. I felt comfortable and positive that I made a good choice in selecting Dr. Muntean to be the specialist that I need to take care of my medical needs in connection to my illness. Dr. Muntean is professional and thorough. She has a good "bedside manner." I like the way that she is proactive in her decisions and course of action in treating my illness.

Dr. Muntean and her staff are very concerned with my health. In fact, Of all the doctors I have seen in my life, she is one of only about three who have shown not only by their words, but more importantly actions, that she cares about me and my treatment. When I was diagnosed with [...] and my liver functions were deteriorating, she prescribed a medicine, [...], that was not allowed by my insurance company even though it showed signs of improving my condition. She doggedly "went to bat" for me by writing to the insurance company. Our persistance, mine and hers, led to my insurance company rescinding the original denial and allowing the use of [...]. I am still using [...] and my health problems have done a complete "180."
