I appreciate that DR Catherine is very straight forward in her recommendations and is an expert in her field. I went to several GYN but she was the one who was able to resolve the issues for me. I found her through a friend referral and I have been going to her since 2013.

Dr. Hunter has been the best doctor I have ever had. She has always treated me very well and has always looked out for my well being. She is caring and compassionate and I would highly recommend her to anyone. She is the first doctor that actually listened to me and resolved the problems that I had experienced for so many years. She truly is the best.

I found Dr Hunter to be a doctor that really cares about her patients. She is one of the few doctors that I have gone to in years who actually takes the time to call her patients personally to discuss test results and other issues that she feels are important.

I found Dr. Hunter to be quite pushy in HER beliefs, rather than my own personal care dynamics. Would not recommend her to anyone!
