Patient Comments (5)
Hixson, TN |
Do I like Dr. Hunt? Yes. His medical assistant Jennifer does not return phone calls even if you are having problems. I spoke to Dr. Hunt with Jennifer present and then my medication never got called in. I called and left a message still never got a call back but she did send my prescription in. I am a Registered Nurse and it actually scares me that if a patient is having a problem that they cannot get a call back. I had an adverse reaction to a medication and never got a call back. Very sad.

Excellent physician and surgeon.

I was first consulted with Dr Hunt in 2011 with a very deceptive melanoma. He was not deterred and proceeded to cover the bases with sentinel biopsy procedure. Again this year treated me again for another melanoma, completed a modified neck dissection and now I am cancer free. ENTs typically have longer wait times due to procedures. I have learned to be patient. A good Dr is worth the wait.
in Pikeville, TN |
Spent no time with me. I waited 1/12 hours past my appointment time then the Dr stayed 5 minutes and out the door. Very unfriendly place. The Dr's nurse explained more then he did. The Dr showed no interest Won't go back
in Soddy Daisy, TN |
His staff is inapt, and never returns phone calls.
