Roman – Aug 06, 2021
There is a feeling of peace and confidence when Dr. Hunt enters the room, his presents bring the assurance that all will be well and I have nothing to worry about. Dr. Hunt is very knowledgeable, kind in his approch to my needs and concerns, and he takes the time to explain what has to be done and the benefits of what has to be done. I would recommend Dr. Hunt to everybody who has a problem with their Colon/ Rectal for treatment and care. One more thing ; Dr. Hunt and his entire staff are very professional. to name a few, Nurse Patricia Flynn, Ms. Heidi and their supporting staff. After your visit with the Doctor, they always follow-up with the results of your many test and future appointments via telephone or text, to be sure that you are well informed and taken care of.

I had a partial open and laparoscopic sigmoid colon resection 3 weeks ago. My surgery lasted 4 hours and I am happy to say I was walking around the hospital the next day. The team at the hospital were absolutely great.

I would wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Hunt to my family and friends. First, the front desk lady was friendly and efficient. Everyone I encountered were friendly and professional. Nurse Simone put me at ease and Jessica drew my blood without any difficulty, unlike my experiences elsewhere. In addition, the examination room and waiting room were both spacious and clean. Dr. Hunt has a very calming demeanor. He was thorough in his examination, he explained the steps he was going to take and he answered all my questions. I cannot think of any one thing that I was unhappy about. Dr. Hunt referred me for additional testing and within a couple hours, I had approval for the test from my insurance company and a scheduled appointment for the scan. Thanks Helen! As long as Dr. Hunt remains with the practice, he will be my go-to doctor for colon and rectal issues.

Dr. Hunt offered me the peace and reassurance I needed to go through with a LIS. He was very efficient and my recovery after the surgery has been quite remarkable. A great big thank you to Dr. Hunt and to the amazing team of healthcare workers at NYP/ Weil Cornell downtown who prepped me, cared for me, and followed up with me. I am truly grateful and appreciative!
