Dr. Julie is incredible. I came to her with a compared meds list, a host of medical issues that other doctors had been unable to address sometimes, and was so scared, because I have been treated badly and ridiculed by other doctors. She's been an amazing advocate for me when I have to see other doctors for specialized care, she's never judgemental, and she's always incredibly down to earth. She takes the time to explain her advice, the science behind it and her opinions of that science

Dr. Gunther is one of the kindest, wisest, most attentive doctors you could imagine. She was able to see me last minute after a skiing accident where she offered superb medical attention and was so compassionate throughout the process. Through the next several weeks, she guided my treatment, sent me emails and checked in often. It's the kind of care I didn't think existed anymore -- Dr. Julie is one of a kind!

We have known Dr. Gunther for several years. While we have moved out of state, my family still consults with Dr. Gunther from time to time. With her extensive medical knowledge coupled with a compassionate personalty, you are well cared for. Dr. Gunther takes medical results and breaks it down so that the patient understands. Dr. Gunther has sound business acumen and the new SPARK MD business model is successful because it is the right combination for affordable medical care.
