Dr. Hunter is a terrific physician!! He is pleasant and professional. If I have to wait longer than 20 minutes, I don’t mind because I know he will also take the time needed with me. His staff is also friendly and helpful. God bless them all for their care of me and others. Thank you.

I have been a patient of Dr Hunter's for almost 15 years. He is treating me for osteoarthritis in both knees. Dr. Hunter is not only a brilliant physician he also has a wonderful, reassuring bedside manner. He has a very kind and soft voice which I find relaxing when I'm in pain.

Dr. Hunter is one of a kind. He goes to great lengths - more so than I've seen any other physician do - for his patients' health, comfort and happiness. As a runner and athlete, I felt discouraged when I got injured, but Dr. Hunter and his team were right there when I needed them, and they seamlessly worked me into the schedule. He understands how discouraging a sports medicine injuries are and does a phenomenal job of tying his work back to the goal: getting his patients back to enjoying life.
