Dr. Hunt is a very good doctor. I have made an emergency appointment to see him. I had radiation proctitis on my colon previously. I was bleeding a lot. He just took his time to check everything- one by one. I know I had taken a lot of his time. I also learnt to take care of my problem the right way because of his diagnosis. I highly recommend Dr. Hunt.

My GI doctor said I needed surgery and referred me to a surgeon. I searched reviews online. Dr. Hunt's name was among the highest rated - by patients, and his peers. His next appointment was a few weeks away, but a vigilant staffer tracked me down as there was a cancellation the next day. Dr. Hunt was professional, calm, reviewed all my reports, did a thorough exam, and was clear in his explanation. I felt confident in his expertise and caring demeanor. He is now my surgeon. So glad I found him.

Courteous gentleman who explained everything and made me feel very comfortable. I appreciated the fact that he and his staff were very apologetic for the doctors delay.

My daughter is on the autism spectrum. The way Dr. Hunt handled her made her trust and at ease at the same time as her mother looking on I felt that she was in safe hands. I knew in my heart she was getting the best. He took the time and answered my repetitive questions. He even made a drawing to give me a visual of what is my daughter problem. All my fears were gorne when left. Thank you.

I would highly recommend Dr Hunt. He is a true professional, he explains the process in a way that a non medical person can understand, not only to the patient but also their family.

Recently met with Dr. Hunt for the first time. He is very pleasant, was very thorough in explaining the procedure even to the point of providing me with a diagram. Was very impressed with him and his staff. Would highly recommend.
