Dr. Hunter is very knowledgeable, kind, and diligent in treating her patients. She has been one of the lights in my healthcare since my aortic dissection in August 2018. She takes time and truly listens to us, the patients, to make sure she isn't missing anything. I am a 45 year old female who is in the healthcare field and who shouldn't even need a cardiologist but I have never been associated with a more caring physician. She not only is caring but she continuously educates herself with the latest medical guidelines and will only settle for the best treatment for her patient even if that meant sending them to someone else. After my episode, I kept asking the nursing staff which cardiologist would you choose and only one name came up over and over----Dr. Monica Hunter.
