He is understanding and empathetic. He will take the time to answer any questions you have and address any concerns regarding your care. I am truly blessed to have such a great doctor.
Dr. Hunter is an amazing doctor as well as an amazing person. We came from NC for a 2nd surgery with him and we were just as pleased with him this time. He went out of his way to make things perfect for me and explained things to me and calmed me down when I was nervous. He spent so much time with me and made time on days he didn't have to in order to accommodate me in order to have the best results possible. I can't say enough about what a wonderful Doctor he is. One of a kind, that's for sure.
Surperb doctor. He helped and was there for me when I needed him most. I am an adult and he has an adult strabismus program as well. He explains everything in a way that one can understand. He makes sure all his work and those of the technicians is done correctly. He spends a lot of time with you answering all of your questions and concerns. Bedside manner is fantastic. I highly recommend him to anyone.
