    Dr. Hunyady was incredibly warm and compassionate with my child (who has autism). He was deeply anxious about undergoing general anesthesia. She went out of her way to give him as much control as she could give him, in a situation that by its nature requires giving up control. Dr. Hunyady was so sensitive to and respectful of my child's needs. She immediately understood what would be helpful to him (even though she had just met him). That was truly amazing. She truly went above and beyond, even when he was being very difficult to work with. Thank you Dr. Hunyady!
