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.

Takes the time to explain how things work to the patient. Is confident, but not unrealistic.

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.

Dr. Hunter is a very caring, thoughtful and thorough Doctor. He is conservative in his treatment - in other words, will try to avoid surgery unless absolutely necessary. This is very much appreciated. I always look forward to my appointments with him. On top of everything else, he has a great sense of humor.
