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.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Dunlop

from Jeanette in CA April 4, 2024 for Eric Dunlop, DO

Almost every time my friends and I, ( all in our 80’s) get together, we end up talking about our ailments and our doctors. Everyone, without exception, complains about their “healthcare providers.” All except me. I am totally happy with Dr Eric Dunlop and his wonderful staff. I am so grateful to be under their care.

from David in CA March 16, 2024 for Eric Dunlop, DO

Can't say enough about how he looks after my wife and I. Goes above and beyond to get you answers quickly and efficiently. His staff is super friendly and efficient. Blessed to have him as our doctor.

from Jody in CA March 9, 2024 for Eric Dunlop, DO

Those words best describe my doctor, Dr. Dunlop. He is truly a lovely man, which means he is understanding, respectful, sweet and kind. His brilliance and sense of humor are understated as he is also modest and somewhat shy.
I feel I have watched him grow as a doctor as I have watched my own son grow as a person. He was just starting his practice here when I first met him! Now I have… See more

from Chris in CA March 9, 2024 for Eric Dunlop, DO

Just the fact that Dr. Dunlop is so positive and makes you feel as if you are his only patient. Getting in to see him on the day we call or the day after is a miracle in this day and age. He is also conscientious about checking to see if a patient has had shots and other necessary exams (mammography) etc.
The entire office is efficient and caring. What more can we ask?

from Charles in CA February 12, 2024 for Eric Dunlop, DO

He was my doctor before he joined MDVIP and there is no way I would not stay with him. He is encouraging and thorough at all times. He is always calm and is an A+ listener. His diagnosis is always spot on.. My wife and I would recommend hi to anyone looking for a new doctor.

from lindsay in CA February 11, 2024 for Eric Dunlop, DO

Im pretty sure that Dr Eric Dunlop has been my doctor right out of his residency. I remember being very interested in just how a new doctor would be... he was instantly willing to listen to my wants and needs as well be clear about his professional understanding of my health challenges. We were able to get on the same page quickly, which was a great relief for me. I like that he likes research… See more

I was riding my mountain bike with shorts and a short sleeve shirt on a hot day, fell off the side of a steep trail head first into a stinging nettle bush. By the time i got home I was in so much pain I thought I was going to die! Doctor Dunlop talked me off the ledge and got me through it! He has come thru for me on multiple occasions, this one is just a memorable one!

from Douglas in CA February 10, 2024 for Eric Dunlop, DO

Dr. Dunlop is very caring, thoughtful and full of compassion. My husband has been a patient of Eric Dunlop ever since he took over a practice in San luis Obispo, CA.
A few years ago, my husband was diagnosed with multiple myeloma. Dr. Dunlop works very closely with our oncologist. He stays involved and up to date with my husband's treatments.
Dr. Dunlop has always returned… See more

from Rita in CA February 10, 2024 for Eric Dunlop, DO

He worked tirelessly through the pandemic with stellar competence and accessibility, grace, and good humor.
He was a beacon of knowledge and sound judgement, and a bright spot in an often dark world.

We continue to be so grateful to have Dr. Dunlop as our physician as we age, and as our health "evolves"!

from Jeanette in CA February 10, 2024 for Eric Dunlop, DO

Most of my friends spend time complaining about their doctors and their health care in general. As for me, though, I have nothing to complain about at all. Dr. Dunlop listens to me and always addresses my concerns. I’m also very happy with Maddie and Diana, his two nurses. This lady is totally satisfied with her health care. Thanks , Doc!!!
