Dr. Hunt has always been up front about the condition my eyes were in and what needed to be done. HE IS VERY GOOD AND HONEST.
in Ocala, FL |
Dr. Hunt removed my two cataracts this past summer. I believe he is a very good surgeon, but must agree with some other comments, his personality is not his best trait, but I guess when you are looking for a good doctor, you have to overlook some of their other faults, as long as they are professional. He did appear to be in a big rush on my first visit, and was I was disappointed with the short first visit, but again he was a very good surgeon.

As a returning patient, I am impressed with the continuing advances with eye care delivery by Dr. Hunt and Staff. I benefit from this advance knowledge and will remain a patient. The Staff is very professional, straight forward and particularly knowledgeable. I give high marks here for their listening skills.. I have medically benefitted from their dedication and from Dr. Hunt's experience. Thank you.

Our experience, my husband and I, has been very good. He's caring, efficient and treats you with respect. His staff is knowledgeable and helpful.
in Ocala, FL |
The staff at Dr. Hunt's office are professional, well trained, and know their jobs well. Dr. Hunt and the staff were easy to talk with and answered all of my questions to my satisfaction. Dr. Hunt exceeded my expectations, which were very high. I had Lasik performed on my eyes in 2001, which he had to take into consideration when determining the proper lenses for my cataract procedures. Again, I am very pleased with the results. Dr. Hunt is a highly skilled physician.

I have been Dr. Hunts patient since I had my detached retina. The doctor who did my surgery recommended Dr. Hunt and I am so thankful he did. My husband liked Dr. Hunt so much that he also changed his eye care to him. We both have had cataract surgery and are very pleased with our card. I have recommended Dr. Hunt to our friends and will continue to do so, His staff is great! All are very knowledgeable and are very friendly.

On my first visit each portion of my exam and consultation seemed to move right along, was never left sitting and waiting for any long period of time. Dr. Hunt examined and explained what my procedure would consist of, and was informative.
in Ocala, FL |
I have had my first of 2 cataract surgerys. And I can not tell you how blessed I am. I can see. And not just clearly and crisply, but colors, vibrant colors. I had no idea as to how blind I was. I am so looking forward to my second surgery, I can't wait. His staff is wonderful and ready to answer any questions. Dr. Hunt is very professional and straight forward and ready to answer any question you have also. I will be back after the second is done.

The whole experience of having my cataract taken care of was wonderful! Everything was explained in such a way that I had complete confidence that my surgery and post-op was going to be fine.

WHAT A GREAT DR. AND OFFICE! After going to a big name place in Orlando and being treated like a number Dr Hunt's office was a pleasant surprise. He and his staff are so friendly, professional and kind it made having eye surgery a PLEASANT EXPERIENCE. The surgeries were painless and totally successful. I'm seeing the best I have in my life and am SO HAPPY I had it done. I'll recommend Dr. Hunt to everyone I come across that may be considering eye surgery. I wish all Dr's offices were this good!

Very well run and Professional
in Summerfield, FL |
I have been going to Ophthalmologists for over seventy years. Dr. Hunt is extremely competent; his surgical skills, excellent, and his explanations lucid. He may not exude warm fuzzies, but that is not what I go to him for. His professional ability is on what I judge him.
in Ocala, FL |
Absolutely amazing doctor and staff. I suffered from corneal edema and ulcers at 29 and I owe my vision to Dr. Hunt. Every optometrist since has complemented his skilled work. Thank you, Dr. Hunt!
in Ocala, FL |
Feel very comfortable with level of professionalism and thoroughness of examination. Impressed with Dr. Hunt's qualifications and his hands-on involvement. (Would like to see exam wait time reduced.)
in Ocala, FL |
I would definitely recommend Dr Hunt for anyone having cataract surgery. I had excellent results!
in Ocala, FL |
Both of my parents had cataract surgery with Dr. Hunt. They chose to have the multi focal lenses, they are both thrilled with their vision. Neither of my parents wear glasses for any range where as before surgery they wore glasses all the time. Dr Hunt is an excellent surgeon and his staff is amazing. I would recommend any one to see him.
in Ocala, FL |
Unfortunately Dr. Hunt does not consider bedside manner important. He says hello when he comes into the room, doesn't shake your hand. He is not personable. Does not like you to ask questions, can be abrupt. When finished he doesn't ask of if there is anything else, any questions etc. He does not like to discuss what he finds in your eye/s etc. Does not reflect a caring attitude.
in Floral City, FL |
Have been to Dr. Hunt a few times. Usually was a very helpful and nice person. Attitude has changed! He was very rude to the point of hollering at me and his nurse. She was prepared. Very short and aggravated when asked questions. Will follow up with next appt. and then no more. Staff also drops the ball when it comes to registration.
in Ocala, FL |
I agree with every word Geneva wrote. This man definitely needs a personality transplant.
in Ocala, FL |
I have been seeing Dr. Hunnt for several years. I had intraocular transplants in both eyes as I was going blind. I have had excellent results. I continue to see the Dr. and staff as needed for tests and check ups, Dr. Hunt and his staff are always very nice and friendly and my visits are very comfortable and pleasant,
Rude and uncaring. He found my questions to be a nuisance. He didn't look at me or introduce himself when he came in to see me. I was baffled that a doctor would treat his patients this way. He didn't explain what was going on with my eyes. I will never go back. Avoid seeing him if you can -- a man that treats his patients this way should not be able to keep practicing.
