Dr. Hunter is a pleasure and has good report with patients. However, the staff could be more clear/explicit about the cost of procedures. The office had me sign a waiver stating that I would assume costs of the procedures/lab work I was having done, but did not make it clear that the bills could (and did) surmount to $1,000. The office could improve on their transparency and explanations to patients who are generally unaware and trusting in them.

Dr. Hunter always spends time with me and asks about my family. I never feel that she is rushing to see other patients. I appreciate that she is so personable and has a genuine interest in all of my family members.
