I have been a patient of Dr Hunt for 28 years and think she is still wonderful! I first saw her when I was 45 years young snd couldn’t lift a cup of coffee with both hands. She determined I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and Osteoarthritis. Then and now she has always found the right combination of drugs, physical therapy, etc to help me live my life and care for myself. I give her A+ rating.

I was referred to Dr. Hunt in March 2018. I was made aware immediately that I had to first send in all medical documents before making an appointment. Once I was able to make an appointment I had to wait nearly 2 months before her first opening. Today, I received a call that after all this time, my appointment in one week needed to be rescheduled as the doctor would not be able to see me and yet once again I would have to wait another 2 months. All this time while in pain. Heartless Doctor!

Nothing like waiting five months for an appointment to be called four days before the appointment, by a very unsympathetic receptionist, to be told "Dr. Hunt needs to cancel your appointment, she can reschedule you in late August." Great, I'll tell my swollen joints and inability to brush my hair and carry my children to just hold and wait another four months.

Dr Hunt is highly unprofessional....overly opinionated and very argumentative. I'm happy I made the decision to go somewhere else for care !

Hunt was late, disorganized and unprofessional. I'm not pleased that I wasted months waiting for the appointment. As I waited in the treatment room she was shouting about other patients to her staff across the office, so don't expect discretion. Said she didn't have time to complete a patient history, didn't order any tests. Do yourself a favor and find a different rheumatologist.

I have never written a review before but Dr Hunts is not a doctor I would recommend. She lets patients wait for up to an hour and a half and doesn’t care. Today she didn’t like that I brought my granddaughter because she doesn’t want kids in her exam rooms and wanted me to leave her with the front desk. My husband is a doctor also and has never treated a patient like this

Dr. Hunt is a very caring, personable doctor who has helped me by treating and controlling my lupus. I am fortunate to have her knowledge and expertise to help me fight this condition. She’s not just a doctor, she’s become a friend.

Dr. Hunt is a great doctor. She is very thoughtful and thorough and works hard to untangle any issues I'm having with my rheumatoid arthritis. She seems genuinely concerned about her patients, and she has a friendly staff, as well. In addition, she'll work me in for an appointment if I have an urgent matter. For my regular appointments, I rarely have to wait long in the waiting area. The office runs efficiently, and I feel Dr. Hunt also spends sufficient time with me during my visits.
