Dr. Hunter is an excellent Ophthalmologist. He is highly skilled and has a wide range of experience in this field. He focuses on his patients and listens attentively and then provides helpful feedback to patients. I have been seeing him for almost 20 years for recurring eye concerns. I would highly recommend Dr. James Hunter.

I have been a patient of Dr. Hunter's for 10 years, ever since he performed cataract surgery on my eyes. The surgery was a complete success. I couldn't have had a better outcome. I continue to see Dr. Hunter annually for my follow-up care. Dr. Hunter is knowledgeable, professional, thorough, and very kind and reassuring. He treats his patients warmly and takes great care in answering every question, big or small. I highly recommend Dr. Hunter to anyone needing his service.

Fair timeliness. Friendly. Concerned. Good explanations and open to questions. Freely refers when he deems another provider more appropriate, even if when procedure is one he can provide. Actually remembers you from visit to visit.
