Dr Hunter is amazing! He is extremely thorough and can perform several tests in office instead is sending you out for several more appointments. You might see a higher turnover with his staff, but his thoroughness more than makes up for having to deal with new staff. I highly suggest Dr. Hunter, especially if you've been searching for answers for awhile.

I personally worked for Dr. Hunter for 8 months and from day one he would verbally abuse ALL of his employees including regularly fight with his wife/office manager in the very front of the office in front of everyone. We would have to pretend we didn't hear them screaming in the halls or right behind us in her office and cringe the whole time it happened. It seemed a little fishy that every new patient that came in suddenly had MS. As I read from previous reviews he is under investigation!

I was sent to his office to rule out MS. He lied and told me I had it. After years of putting dangerous drugs in my system,I found out the truth,and have since found many others in the same situation. IF you choose to ignore my warning and see him,at least go to someone he DOESN''T know about and get another opinion. Your life could depend on it.

He is moody and can change on a dime. In front of patients. I have seen him rage at a colleage that worked for him and had only asked his opinion on an MRI. He has called and moved and changed appointments 5 times on a patient that was trying to see him for the first time. In 5 years, everytime that I come in there has been a full staff change. Maybe that is due to his anger issues. He is referring me to another neurlogist and MRI images that is some one elses but with my name on it!!!!
