Dr. Hunter is very kind, knowledgeable, and makes you feel comfortable about having surgery on your eyes. His nurses were gentle and kind. I love the way they all explained exactly what they were doing to you each step of the way He is my hero! I've been wearing glasses since the 3rd grade and now I can see without them at the age of 64. Thank you so much Dr. Hunter. I have been telling everyone about you.

Dr. Hunter was able to help me with an eye problem that 2 other doctors had been unable to solve. I saw him after the eye drops and regimen prescribed by my other doctors didn't clear up my eye infection. He had excellent follow-up on my issues as well.

Did not think my vision was bad till Dr. Hunter checked my eyes and lo and behold, my vision was shot. After surgery on both eyes , I can see better than I could 40 years ago. The personal care and efficiency of all the staff was comforting and speedy to a great experience. Dr. Hunter is the most friendly and thorough Dr. you will ever meet.

OH MY, DR. BRIAN HUNTER , I CALL HIM DR. PLANO, WHICH MEANS 100% PERFECTION. THREE WEEKS AGO, THIS AMAZING REFRACTIVE EYE SURGEON REMOVED BOTH OVERDUE CATARACTS FROM MY EYES WITH NOTHING BUT EXPERTISE AND 100% TOTAL SATISFACTION! I HAVE 20/20 VISION IN BOTH MY EYES NOW, THE VISION I ONCE HAD IN MY 40'S! I AM 67 YEARS OLD NOW , THAT WAS 27 YEARS AGO, FOLKS! YOUR HOMEWORK IS DONE, NO NEED TO INQUIRE FURTHER. HE IS THE BEST. I GIVE HIM 10 STARS ABOVE, NO LESS. NO COMPLAINTS. THANK YOU!

I am very happy to recommend Dr Hunter and his colleagues. I came to see him not only with cataract-afflicted eyes, but with eyes I had struggled to see with for 58 years due to extreme myopia and astigmatism from birth. Dr Hunter provided me with expert information and options for lens replacement. I learned that custom lenses could be implanted that would once and for all bring me vision I had only dreamed of. I could not have asked for better care and genuine interest in my outcome.

Moved from OH to Tucson area, long overdue for eye exam. Fishkind, Bakewell & Maltzman was recommended by a friend who was scheduled for cataract surgery. Friend very pleased with the service and results. Became concerned as the waiting room was very busy - almost full. It turns out that, while the office is busy, the staff gets the patients in on time (lots of drivers for those examined), staff & doctors treat patient as individual, communicating excellently. Dr Hunter was outstanding, Happy!

Truly a professional and takes great pride in his work. He was precise and did not sugar coat the details of my LASIK procedure. He handles himself very well and answered all my questions without hesitation.
in Tucson, AZ |
I highly recommend Dr. Hunter. He put me at ease about cataract surgery. Best of all the outcome of my surgery and the quality of my vision far exceeded my expectations. I am very thankful that I chose Dr. Hunter. I could not have been in better hands. Thank you, thank you.
