Dr. Lunt's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Lunt "I'm from Colorado and trained in New York. I'm low key and straight-forward. I'll tell you like it is."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Lunt "I take time with patients to learn what is really the correct diagnosis, or find a way to arrive at it.  Listening is a critical part of what I do.  Only then can the diagnosis and proper treatment be discovered.  I am a surgeon, and, unless it is necessary, most of what I do is to keep you out of the operating room."

Patient Comments (2)

Dr. Lunt was kind and caring. He even apologized twice for making me wait. I've waited much longer in other offices and never had that. He was thorough and I didn't feel rushed at all. I would highly recommend Dr. Lunt, he even had arrest sense of humor!
