Ratings for Dr. Jonathan A. Dunn
I can say with 100% confidence that Dr. Dunn is a great OB. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a compassionate, respectful, skilled doctor, and his sense of humor is an added bonus. After a slightly traumatic pregnancy (and delivery) with my first child, with a different provider, I was prepared to be extra particular and precautions with my second. After some investigation I chose Dr. Dunn as my OB. Every prenatal appointment with Dr. Dunn was like my first. He always took his time to listen to my concerns, and made every visit feel as thorough as my intake appointment. He always spent a lot of time making sure all of my questions were answered. He was always very knowledgeable, as well as funny and personable. I couldn't have asked for a better labor experience than I had with him. His aftercare was also impeccable. If I have another pregnancy I won't see anyone else.
Dr. Dunn is amazing! He is a professional, knowledgeable and friendly doctor. During every appointment, he took ample time to answer every question that entered my mind, and took them seriously, no matter what they were. His profound knowledge base combined with experience gave me confidence in his decisions. Dr. Dunn stayed in the room for the entire delivery, didn't just come in at the end to "catch the baby" and offered calming support and encouragement when I was exhausted. He had a great relationship with the nursing staff. They obviously had mutual respect for each other and shared the responsibility. He's so easy to talk to and to be around, but most importantly he goes above and beyond for his patients, offering himself and his time during one of the most important events that can happen in life, childbirth!!! Thank You Dr. Dunn.
I am not one who often publicly sings a doctor's praises-much less post on a ratings website-but after having Dr. Dunn as my OB throughout my pregnancy and then as the doctor who performed my C-section, I feel like I need to publicly thank him. There were a few small things that came up through the course of my pregnancy, and Dr. Dunn would spend an incredible amount of time with my husband and me answering questions, talking through options, and letting us know what to anticipate for the future. My delivery was a 30-hours-long process that was painful and scary. For about 25 of those hours, another OB was on call and she was terrible, She rushed through checks with me, made me feel unintelligent when I asked questions, and ultimately missed what I consider to be some vital things that led to complications for my baby and me after the delivery. I am SO relived Dr. Dunn came on call, took charge of the situation, and did an excellent job performing the surgery and bringing my son and me through it safely. He's rated #1 in the county for a very good reason! I look forward to continue using him as my OB/GYN in the future, and cannot recommend him enough to those looking for one. Thank you, Dr. Dunn!
Due to my husband and I having careers that force us to relocate each summer and then a cross country move on top of that, I unfortunately have had 5 doctors throughout the course of my 2 pregnancies. two in Manhattan, one in South Hampton NY, One in Los Angeles and Dr. Dunn. I researched quite a while to find him and have to say he is the best OBGYN Ive ever seen. My experience: Wait time: virtually none. The times I have waited, I was reasonable enough to realize that other patients ahead of me required more attention. You can gauge how respectful a Dr is to his patients by looking around the waiting room. If there is major overflow then I would assume he double and triple books. Never have I seen his waiting room busy (and he shares an office.) I write this only because of the few negative reviews I saw below mine. Staff: Always friendly, informative and respectful. They make a point to make small talk and to put you at ease. Patient room: very clean. Ease of making appointments: I have called and been able to get in same day every time I requested it if I wasnt feeling well. Dr. Dunn: friendly, funny, charming, knowledgable and takes time with you. He does not rush you and answers each question with thought and insight. I have had talented doctors with poor bedside manner and for me, I need the whole package when choosing someone to deliver my child. Alas, I delivered on a day dr. dunn was not on call, but I would like to mention that he works very closely with midwives, namely a wonderful woman named Andrea that made me feel like a queen on my delivery day. Dr. dunn is a great advocate of midwives and that is something to consider. Aftercare: He visited my family and I in the hospital when he was on call, he called to follow up on some pain issues I was having and continues to be a delight all around for my family. I thought he would be deserving of this public review.
Dr. Dunn has cared for me during all FOUR of my pregnancies, and he is the absolute best. His assistant, Chris, is sweet as can be, so it's just icing on the cake. His caring demeanor and expert advice has always comforted me greatly during pregnancy, birth, and post partum. I recommend him without reservation!!
Dr Dunn is the most responsible, resourceful and knowledgeable doctor I've met. I've seen quiet a few OB GYN from Encinitas to La Jolla and finally found dr. dunn as my OB GYN. Not only does he have great bed side manners and explains things very well, he is also an excellent surgeon. He performed surgery on me and it went really well and recovered as expected. He saw me through my first pregnancy and I describe his style as cautiously relaxed in that he doesn't bog his patients with a lot of "can do" or "can't do" restrictions so that the expectant mother is relaxed and not stressed out. However, he is very cautious and thorough when managing my pregnancy. Another note is that Dr. Dunn is very scientific. He will often cite data and evidence from medical studies. For someone who is always looking for evidence like me, it is great to have this information.
I believe a low stress pregnancy can result in a happy/calm baby. The right OBGYN is a huge variable in this equation. A colleague at work strongly recommended Dr. Dunn and I am forever grateful to her. Dr. Dunn is not your typical stuffy doctor. He’s fun, easy to talk to and has a great bedside manner. My favorite things about Dr. Dunn is that he’s knowledgeable, experienced and explains things well. Women have been having babies for centuries and nowadays, people are so worried about what they should and shouldn’t do while pregnant. Dr. Dunn focuses on a healthy/practical pregnancy and doesn’t stress you out with a bunch of rules while being pregnant. During your pregnancy, you go to the OBGYN’s office so much, they become an extended family. Everyone at Dr. Dunn’s office are extremely friendly and caring. I always felt Dr. Dunn truly cared about me and never felt rushed at our appointments. Dr. Dunn is the best and when you're pregnant only the best will do!
Dr Dunn is truly an exceptional doctor. He is super knowledgeable, easy to talk to, has the perfect bedside manner and explains/relates concepts and results clearly and concisely. Dr. Dunn always takes the time to answer questions and never rushes through explanations. It is very apparent that Dr. Dunn really cares for his patients and truly loves what he does. Dr. Dunn delivered both my children, and I feel blessed to have been in his care during both my pregnancies and deliveries. Honestly, I can't say enough good things about my experiences with Dr. Dunn and would highly recommend him to anyone!
I am very lucky to have both of my children delivered when he was on-call. The first one was a vaginal delivery. the 3rd degree tear healed very well due to his careful stitching (it takes an hour!), so I never experience any problem with the recovery. My second baby had some complication and needed a c-section. Dr.Dunn explained the issue in the way I could understand to ease my nevousness and found a perfect timing to take the baby out. Thanks to his expertise, I have two healthy boys and beautiful memories of every part of my pregnancy and delivery. His knowledge and communication skills also makes every office visit a pleasant experience. I've already recommend him to many of my friends.
