Hunter Jr., DPM completed his undergraduate studies at The University of Texas at Dallas (UTD), earning a B.A. in Biology with a minor in Psychology. He then spent a year as a graduate assistant in the Sickle Cell Research Lab under Dr. Betty Pace at UTD. He matriculated on to The New York College of Podiatric Medicine (NYCPM) in 2005 after meeting Dr. Laurence Lowy who was very influential in his decision to pursue Podiatry as a profession. While at NYCPM, Dr. Hunter was involved in several student organizations and served as Honor Council representative for all four years, Student Ambassador Coordinator, SNPMA Delegate, Orthopedics Club Vice-President, and Surgery Rotation Coordinator. He was also the recipient of the Michael J. Valletta Scholarship, APMA Educational Scholarship, Pedinol Award for Dermatology, and the NYCPM Scholarship.He completed his PM&S36 residency at Kingwood Medical Center in Kingwood, TX in 2012. During his residency he presented several grand rounds on various topics including AO Fixation, Pedal Coalitions, Jones Fractures, and Lateral Ankle Pathology. He has been in practice since 2012 in Killeen, TX. During his time in practice Dr. Hunter has served on several committees for the American Podiatric Medical Association, Texas Podiatric Medical Association, and American College of Foot & Ankle Surgeons. He currently serves as committee chair for the TPMA Young Members Committee. Dr. Hunter is also a member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. & is a Prince Hall Mason. He is very active in his community, and participates in multiple volunteer events throughout the year. Dr. Hunter proudly served as a member of the 82nd Airborne Division from 1995-1999. During that time Dr. Hunter was an airborne infantry medic attached to HHC/305 PIR. He gives credit to his military experience for teaching him integrity, honor, responsibilty, & respect. As a veteran, one of Dr. Hunter's greatest joys is being able to serve the Killeen/Fort Hood area. Dr. Hunter has served this area for 5 years now, and we'll continue to observe this area as a way for him to give back to veterans, active duty military & the family members.

He did not use enough of the painkiller when he removed three toe nails from each foot so it was very painful then they gave me the advice that to take care of it at home I should pour alcohol on them. Had to ask how to take care at home no advice or aftercare information was volunteered.
