At UC Davis, Dr. Bunas became fascinated with a device for patients with kidney failure – a home dialyzer – while obtaining a BS Degree in Chemical Engineering. Pursuing this interest in biomedical engineering, he studied medicine at the UNC School of Medicine and was awarded his MD degree. After an internship at Scripps Mercy Hospital, Dr. Bunas completed his residency training in Dermatology at the OHSU Hospital in Portland. Adept at surgery, he went on to complete a fellowship in Dermatologic Surgery at Duke University. He moved back to the Northwest and worked in group practices in Richland and Bellevue. In 1996, Dr. Bunas started his own General Bellevue Dermatology practice in Bellevue. He lives in Kirkland and is an avid golfer and snow skier.
