    Conditions Treated

    Dr. Gunther says..

    Dr. Gunther is family medicine trained to take care of all people of all ages throughout their lives. She provides comprehensive wellness care, urgent care, minor emergency care and does a variety of procedures including laceration repairs, skin biopsies, pap smears and many more.

    She is Board Certified but 50 years ago would have been called a 'generalist'. She is also a direct primary care doctor-- a modern version of the old-fashioned community doctor. She no longer bills insurance, but accepts a flat-monthly payment from her patient-members.

    Why Does Experience Matter?

    Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
