I was a patient of Dr Hunts several years ago. He did a total hip replacement. I was up and out in less than a week feeling great. My new hip is so good I'd forgotten I had it and was stopped for a second scan at the airport.because I didn't claim it.........can't say enough about he and his staff. thanks Dr Hunt,

Unfortunately , even with my family doctors referral and the fact I've been experiencing this pain for a year. ...I did not see Dr. Hunt NOR am I scheduled to see him next time. I was simply given a shot and rescheduled again in 3wks. Then i MIGHT get an MRI scheduled. Also, i felt uncomfortable with the APRN. She rarely made eye contact and made me feel like i was at 'the BIG orthopedic office'. I came to Dr. Hunt so I would Not feel that way. Hopefully my next appt. will have a +ending

Dr Hunt takes the time to listen to concerns. He is thorough with his exam, considerate and a down to earth person. His surgical abilities are second to none. I have had excellent results with my shoulder surgery. His APRN, Tanna is also excellent. Highly recommend this practice.

I had total knee replacement surgery on June 28th. I had very little pain and I was up and walking the same day as surgery. Went home from the hospital 2 days later. Home health came along with therapy 3 times weekly. I was graduated from a walker to a cane within 10 days then to walking without any device within 3 weeks of surgery. I have nothing but great things to say about Dr. Hunt and his services. In my opinion, he's the best!!

I never dread an appointment with Dr. Hunt or any of his staff as they see you as scheduled.

Dr. Hunt was very polite explained my condition and what needed to be done. After 2 surgeries I am recovering nicely. His staff was very friendly and thorough.
Thank you so much for your review! We are so glad to hear that you are doing well!

I made an appt with the dr. Hunt, not a nurse asst. My insurance paid to see a dr. Not an asst. I will never go back!!! His commercials claim, he is able to spend more time with patients? Not true!! He makes mega insurance dollars, without seeing him!!!! There are many other great physicians, obviously, he doesn't have the time to handle all the patients!!! I'm sure his care is great! Only if you see him!! Since when does insurance accept a definition of a prn?? I went elsewhere, and got care!
We are so sorry to hear that and understand your frustration. Dr. Hunt's nurse practitioner has been with him for over 10 years and he trusts in her ability to order all testing and evaluate prior to an appointment with him. Unfortunately, he can only be in office two days a week due to surgery time. We are fortunate to have Tanna to help allow Dr. Hunt the ability to accommodate all of his patients.

Dr. Hunt and all his staff are all so helpful and friendly! He preformed knee scope on a meniscus tear for myself and placed cast on my daughter when she broke her elbow! Highly recommend ??
Thanks for your review! We are so glad that you and your daughter were pleased with your treatment at our office!
in Mayfield, KY |
