Patient Reviews (3)
in Colorado Springs, CO |
Well apparently not only does Dr. Lunt have very little time to help his patients, but a very unsettling bedside manner as well. Upon my son waking from a procedure Dr. Lunt informed him that he has cirrhosis. His tone was rude, abrupt and to say the lease without a hint of compassion. I've been a nurse for 30 years and seen my share of incompetent, so called professionals, but this one will stand out in my memory for quite some time. There's no excuse for Dr. Lunt's glib insensitivity.

He is very arrogant and has awful bedside manner. I had a pleasant experience with two of his colleagues and this shocked me. Would not recommend this doctor is you want someone with a heart and compassion.
in Colorado Springs, CO |
He repeatedly displayed a lack of care and involvement. I have a complicated condition as a result of a bowel resection done about a year and a half ago. I have been suffering with constant pain. He has to be reminded to schedule tests, he conflicts with his PA diagnosis, he does not return phone calls, and he gets other staff to discuss medical issues. He basically told me it was in my head. I went to a Denver clinic and within 30 minutes they had a definitive diagnosis.
