    Dr. Hunt first impressed me with the fact that he wanted to try all other treatments before he actually did surgery. To be blunt his motivation was obviously not to make money but to insure my health first and foremost. Only after all other options were exhausted did he agree to do surgery. Dr. Hunt is an easy man to talk too. He is not pretentious but actually cares about his patients wellbeing. I would highly recommend him to anyone considering back surgery.

    Dr. Hunt was the best choice for my recent spinal surgery. He was honest, answered all of my questions which were extensive and explained the entire procedure. I was comfortable I my decision. It's been 2 weeks and I'm pleased with my progress. You won't go wrong if you are faced with needing surgery. He was highly recommended and I now stand by that myself.

    Excellent Dr. I came to see him from Mexico City and it was the best decision ever, I had a surgery with him because I was with a lot of pain, numbness and tingling in my left arm and after surgery all of those were gone! He's not only a great Dr but also an amazing human being and he treats patients in a wonderful way! I absolutely recommend him..

    I have been seeing Dr. Leonel Hunt for over 10 years. He said “only do the surgery when I could not take it anymore.” He never rushed me. Well I was there with my leg pain. I had a couple of herniated disks and he made it very clear to me that he could help me with my leg pain but that he believed that my back would still hurt because of arthritis. He was right. He did a micro disk repair on my lumbar L3-4 and my right leg was much better. It has been 3 months now and I am happy with outcome

    I went in to see Dr. Hunt who came highly recommended by all of my other doctors. Amazing bedside manner. Not only made me, the patient, feel comfortable & answered all of my questions but he did so as well for my husband & daughter. He took the time in the office & outside as well by being available by email/phone. He won't quickly want to put you under the knife yet is sincere when you need to & no other choice remains unless you want permanent nerve & muscle damage.
