Dr. Hunt's Care Philosophy

As a surgeon, I understand that visits, either in the ER or the office, are often stressful and frightening regarding the possibility of an operation. I believe that I have an ability to comfort and console patients and families in and around this time. I try to take time to explain procedures and plans simply and carefully to ensure that patients and family feel involved in their care. I also very much enjoy being a surgeon. I like to think that this is evident in my actions and practice.

    Huntsville, AL |
    Dr. Hunt was very nice, but performed a breast exam OVER my hospital gown. He completely dismissed my concerns before even "examining" me. Recommend a breast reduction when I went in for a breast lump. Nice guy, but I would never go back.

    Allot of people that really don't know me say that I'm hard to deal with. The truth of the matter is in my short life I've been through so much that trusting Dr's, can be very difficult. I come from Florida where the Dr's are not just out to get paid, they truly care/love their patients. When I met Dr. Hunt he was just like my Dr's in Florida I'm not just patient to Him we are family & I'm grateful & blessed that God placed Dr. Hunt & his loving staff in my walk. I owe him my life.

    I met Dr, Hunt 15-30 minutes before surgery. His bedside manners helped relieved the nervousness of sergery. The surgery went well. I would recommend him to family and friends.

    Dr. Hunt is the best doctor I have ever had. It just so happened I needed an emergency surgery and he did such a great job! He fixed my obstruction and even after a few years, everything is just like it was before the surgery. Anythime I was worried and had questions, he personally and promplty called me back to reasure me (i never have had a surgery or been put under like that before). Best doctor ever! Not to mention his awesome nurse, just as great as Dr. Hunt!
