Dr. Hunter is great. His staff - another story altogether! Took over a week to get orders for a CT Scan sent to my imaging lab. When asked why - "we're so busy..." I'll get it done in an hour. So now, another day has passed, no order. Sheesh!

On May 27,2020 I had my follow up appointment with Dr. Hunter to review my MRI and focus on hearing restoration. Dr. Hunter spent nearly 40 minutes going over the results of the MRI and assured me that all was Okay and hearing restoration was possible. He demonstrated a hill level of skill explaining the diagnosis and recommended treatment. A high level of professionalism was demonstrate each time I saw him or one of his staff. The culture of Boulder Medical Center is focused on providing patient care with the objective of excellence at all levels of treatment.

Very thorough. Discussed my problem, and recommended some alternatives for care. I didn't feel like he wasn't interested in what I said. Was wonderful and his nurse Michelle.

I was very skeptical having had rather severe sinus problems for years. Dr. Hunter was the first medical provider to take the time to explain what exactly is going on with me and to order a scan to see what, if anything, can be done. I was more than pleasantly surprised and am hopeful that I will be able to control these awful infections.

Best ENT I’ve been fortunate enough to see. Found the root of a problem I’ve had that has puzzled family practitioners for years, and performed the surgery without a hitch. Great sense of humor and open in sharing his knowledge.

I have been seeing Dr. Hunter since he took over for Dr. Lillydahl and couldn't be happier. He's a very knowledgeable doctor who keeps current in his practice. He will go out of his way to help his patients and is great at listening to your issues. His assistant Michelle is also worth mentioning. She is a wonderful assistant. He performed a sinus surgery on me and did an excellent job. I highly recommend Dr. Hunter.

I would put Dr. Hunter in my top 5 best doctors I’ve had during my lifetime. He was my surgeon for my tonsillectomy and turbinate reduction. The surgery went great and he was so kind, caring, and compassionate during my pre- and post-op appointments. He took the time to answer all my questions and eased my fears about surgery. I strongly believe that he genuinely cares for his patients and works to achieve the very best surgical outcomes. He’s awesome and I’d recommend him to anyone!

He saw me 3-4 times in short succession to check a non-healing wound I had and reassured me every time that it would heal. He too great time to thoroughly exam me and gave me very specific instructions and eventually it did heal! He was patient and kind. Cannot say enough good things about him or his office staff. Highly recommended!

Doesn’t renew prescriptions nor provide patients with test results in a timely manner. Seems to have no time mgmt skills and no empathy for patients when it comes to their needs. Doesn’t return phone calls or give feedback when requested over the phone. Must have an appointment if you want feedback.

UPDATE: In my previous comment I was very frustrated after dealing with several people that couldn't give me an answer about my billing concern, but after a couple days my issue was finally resolved. I wanted to give Dr. Hunter a new review because the service he provided as a physician was great but my recommendation to him going forward would be to inform patients of when they are receiving what are considered surgical procedures so there isn't any confusion when the bill arrives.

Dr. Hunter was very patient and answered all my questions regarding my years of chronic sore throats. I never felt rushed in his office or like a number. He performed my tonsillectomy which healed nicely. I haven’t had any throat infections in a year since my surgery.

Under Dr. Hunter’s care, I suffered for two years with tubes in my ears and recurrent ear infections, sinus infections, strep throat. He prescribed antibiotics but nothing worked. I mentioned it was very difficult to breathe out of my nose. He said “well there’s nothing I can do about that “ (not kidding) A different ENT ordered a CT which showed 90% blockage likely contributing to infections. It’s been 8 months since surgery, no infections. I am disappointed Hunter didn’t look for root cause.

I was recently referred to Dr Mark Hunter, at the Boulder Medical Center. He was able (and willing) to schedule surgery for me within a few days. I had a lot of questions, and Dr Hunter gave me all the time I needed to answer my questions fully. He is a very patient and friendly person who makes you feel at ease immediately, and I was very pleased with the results of the surgery he performed on my throat. I highly recommend him to anyone who is having ear, nose and throat problems

Front staff was very rude and incredibly disrespectful to me and my family. If I could give the front staff a zero star rating I would. Dr was ok but hard to schedule.
