About our process
Jul 10, 2020
After seeing a few doctors in the rural area where I live with help about a condition that is uncommon I felt like I must be going crazy. I felt dismissed not listened to and like the providers thought I was imagining my symptoms. As soon as I got the referral to Dr. Cuneo and had my appointment I felt the opposite. Dr. Cuneo listened and examined me and had a probable diagnosis within the time of our first appointment. He perscribed medication that has had a massive positive impact on my quality of life. I feel incredibly grateful. During our last Zoom appointment Dr. Cuneo exhibited the kind of knowledge care and concern about my health that has been unparralled in my experience so far. like I said before I am very grateful and thankful to receive this level of care.

Dr Cuneo. Exceptional. The Best. None better in my nearly [age redacted] years.

Best possible experience

I am sure Dr. Cuneo is very busy given his impressive qualifications and from my very first appointment I have been simply amazed with how carefully he listens to me and the amount of time he has spent with me. I've never felt rushed and truly feel that I am receiving personalized care of the highest quality. I travel from out of state to see him and he was able to diagnose my condition when no other neurologist I had seen where I live could.

So very sad that Dr. Cuneo has moved departments and that there was no on e at UCSF that he felt he could refer me to. I'm upset to be losing my doctor.

Provider sent me to another clinic that he thought would be able to manage my condition and medication but when I called the clinic said that they were unable to do that so I believe he is unaware that the Headache Clinic does not see or manage the medications we agreed on even though he assured me they would after I double checked verbally with him in his office.

I've already recommended him to a family member who lives even further away than me. I feel he is absolutely worth it.

Dr Cuneo asked several times when my symptoms had changed. I thought he meant progressed as that is what has happened in the past 6 months but he took it as they stabilized which is a whole different prospective and concern. I'm not sure how I could have said things differently to help him understand.

visit very thorough

Good doctor except horrible phone experiences which lasted ten days. Why no answering machine?? Why tell me the doctor would call with results and then no further communications until I finally got my phone efforts rewarded after ten days.

Dr. Cuneo spent time to go over a complex history and records he was thorough and made sense of all of it; no detail was unimportant. He was understanding and kind with delicate information. As a retired registered nurse I was impressed how he put it all together.

I've seen about 8 physicians now for my neurologic issue. Out of all of them he was one of the top two in terms of bedside manner and listening. He was the most knowledgeable and most logical out of all of them - all the while be caring and a great listener. I am healthcare provider myself so I really appreciate when someone is a great practitioner. He gave me well thought out answers for my questions that no one else has given me.

Dr. Cuneo is a real treasure

Dr was a waste of time. He didn't listen and gave us a bogus diagnosis. It looked like he "cut and pasted" a report from past doctor's work. We will never come to UCSF again.

Drs [name redacted] and Cuneo were all excellent. They all clearly care about their patients and work.

One of the best medical experiences I have had in my long life. Very different from an earlier neurology experienceI had a few months ago.
