I would give this doctor a zero rating if I could. I went to see this doctor after having no luck with my current doctor. I read all the reviews and visited her website. I was encouraged by them both, but as soon as I stepped into her office, I felt like a number. Her wait times are ridiculous and her staff are incompetent and slow. Of the five visits I had with this woman, nothing she recommended helped my symptoms. I finally went home to Houston and saw a doctor that helped me.

My experience with Dr. Hunter was awful and very costly. I visited her because I was feeling tired and depressed and I was having no luck with my current practicioner. She suggested a two hundred dollar test that yielded no answers and several blood tests. She suggested vitamins and blamed my weight gain. I was so angry I drove to Houston and saw a different dr. She said my thyroid meds were too low and my hormones needed to be adjusted. I feel myself again . Dr. Hunter wasted my time and money

Last winter I had the pleasure of meeting Dr.Hunter. I've never had a obgyn experience such as I had with her. Not only did she solve the discomfort I was having but she made you feel so at ease Sometimes it's not easy talking about personal female stuff. With Dr Hunter it's more like talking to a good friend
