My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I believe good medicine stems from a close doctor-patient relationship that revolves around longer appointments, strong communication, proactive patient involvement, and educated discussions about medical decisions. As your private doctor, I encourage you to share in the decision making process when it comes to your health and I strive to find an individual wellness plan for you, as no two patients are alike. All too often in modern medicine I feel that doctors are forced to practice “cookie cutter medicine”. As an MDVIP-affiliated physician, I am able to spend the necessary time needed to practice like an old-fashioned primary care doctor and develop a personal relationship with you.

As a family practice physician I am comfortable managing most conditions, but my special interests are in cardiovascular health, hypertension, dermatology, and hospital based medicine. I am one of a small number of primary care doctors in San Luis Obispo who has admitting privileges at both Sierra Vista Hospital and French Hospital. I regularly see and manage my patients when they are hospitalized, and because of this, I find they have a smooth transition to follow up care after being discharged from the hospital. I have numerous interactions and relationships with local specialists in San Luis Obispo to help you with your unique needs. I see patients from all over the central coast, including San Luis Obispo, Pismo Beach and the 5 Cities area, Nipomo, Santa Maria, Atascadero, Paso Robles, Morro Bay, Los Osos and Cayucos.

My husband and I both see Dr. Eric Dunlop in San Luis Obispo, CA. Dr. Dunlop is not only very knowledgeable and professional, he also is personable and able to provide understandable explanations of medical conditions, procedures and treatments. He asks questions to get a clear understanding of symptoms we might be experiencing and offers solutions that work for us. The staff from the… See more

I've been with Dr. Dunlop for several years, and what I appreciate is the time that he spends explaining my tests results. He gives several tests in his office that I have found other doctors don't here in SLO. His staff keeps me reminded of my appointments. I know that MDVIP is costly, but I will go wherever Dr. Dunlop practices at.

I've been through 6 general practice doctors since coming to this county, and every one has not worked out for one reason or another not my doing. I'm so delighted with Dr. Dunlop -- calls are answered promptly, the annual physical exam was the most thorough I've ever had and inspired confidence, his staff is a treat. I'm pretty low maintenance, but when I returned from… See more

I never thought I would find a doctor like Dr. Dunlop in this county! I have fibromyalgia and all the issues that go with it and he has taken it so seriously. He has been kind and smart and so sweet and personable which is so important to people with functional disorders. He is willing to try anything safe to help and he actually works with me to find solutions instead of speaking from on… See more

We have enjoyed getting to know Dr. Dunlop over the last few months and appreciate his caring manner. We are particularly pleased with the way he has gotten to know our son, Alex, and helped Alex to relax and have faith in his primary care doctor

from Carol in CA March 7, 2018 for Eric Dunlop, DO

My story is pretty simple since I'm darn healthy. However, due to his thorough testing, Dr.Dunlop discovered that I had a hypo active thyroid without the usual symptoms. I have had other small questions, but his super staff fields everything and doesn't make you feel silly. I've always had an answer or an appointment within the calendar day. The new internet access will also be… See more

Thank you Dr. Dunlop!
You have fostered a trust and partnership with me in my healthcare. I appreciate your ability to listen and share your insights and experiences, but also your openness to let me choose the direction to proceed when challenges and questions arise.

from Emily and Dene in CA March 3, 2018 for Eric Dunlop, DO

Our experiences with Dr Dunlop have shown him to be informed, intelligent, thorough, skilled, and most importantly caring and compassionate. The staff is professional, friendly and competent. Thank you!

from Brian in CA March 3, 2018 for Eric Dunlop, DO

Dr. Dunlop is a good listener, seems up-to-date on medical knowledge and is very good at working with me to get the best treatment possible.

from Christine in CA March 2, 2018 for Eric Dunlop, DO

I appreciate being taken off of a prescription medicine and using Pepcid instead. Also having my heart checked after a bout with pneumonia just to see. I like the thoroughness of exams.
