  • "Warning. Do not use this doctor under any circumstances. Dr. Zuniga is not interested in your health. His only concern is how to bankrupt you. He ordered super expensive tests that HE KNEW were NOT medically necessary, nor covered by insurance to enrich himself. When you call to dispute, he wont pick up the phone. He scammed us for FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS. Beware!"
