My husband had a great experience getting an eye exam with Dr. Hunter. He was very caring, had great professional experience, and really took the time to discuss his eyes and explain things. The staff was also very kind and professional.

Having had a military and commercial aviation career I have always been paranoid about my eyes. Dr. Hunter and his exceptionally professional team completely alleviated any apprehensions that I may have had. My surgery consisted of cataracts with Symfony lens replacements. I would unequivocally recommend anyone Dr. David "Drew" Hunter. John Hallquist Hilton Head Island, SC

He is an amazing eye surgeon. Very caring and tells you exactly what is going to happen. AND a call to you after surgery at home. Can’t say enough about how awesome Dr. Hunter is and you won’t regret having him as your eye doctor.

Dr.Hunter was very informative. I was nervous about having lasik surgery (mainly because I dislike my eyes being touched) but, he was very helpful throughout the process. Dale his technician was awesome as well!

I have had terrible vision for as long as I can remember, finally this year my husband talked me into getting lasik. I have talked about wanting lasik for years now and always talk myself out of it! It's been a week since I've had the procedure and I can honestly say that my overall experience with Dr. Hunter and his staff has been excellent. Lasik has been one of the best decision I've ever made

I have been wearing glasses for over 60 years and was having trouble reading fine print and was bothered by intense sunlight. Dr Hunter treated my cateracs and fitted me with Symphony multifocal lenses. The entire process was pain and discomfort free. It is like a miracle - I now see and read perfectly without glasses. Dr Hunter and staff were very caring! I offer the highest recommendation of Dr Hunter’s services to anyone that wants to restore their vision. Thank you, Dr Hunter!!

I received excellent care from Dr Hunter. He really cares about his patients and spends whatever time is needed to answer all your questions. I had cataract surgery in both eyes and Dr Hunter helped me to select the right lens for me and I now have perfect far and near vision. Thank you, Dr. Hunter! I can't recommend him enough.

I definitely would recommend Dr. Hunter. I have been a patient at Sungate Medical Group for ever since I moved to Sun City, over three years ago. As I was having problems with dry eyes, the staff recommended I see Dr. Hunter. He immediately took the time and concern to help me. Dr. Hunter performed a procedure "Lipiflow Thermal Pulsation" Treatment. About a week after the procedure, along with following the instructions, my eyes have improved greatly. My eyes are now pain-free.
