    Dr. Hunter is always so nice and caring.

  • 3/13/2018

    Doctor Hunter and her team are fabulous! We love you all!

  • 3/13/2018

    My daughter was not prescribed any medication but it was offered. Dr. Hunter explained the medications to me. She gave me the opportunity after explanation to determine if we wanted to move forward with treatment. I really appreciated that. Dr. Hunter and her student were very kind and knowledgeable. They answered questions. They even spoke to my daughter, asked her questions, and allowed her to answer. What I really loved was, when it was time for the physical assessment, Dr. Hunter reiterated something that I enforce with my child. I have told my daghter that no one should look at her private areas other than myself and her Dr (When I am present). Dr. Hunter told her the same thing! I was very impressed!

    Dr. Hunter was warm and inspired great confidence. She explained things to us in a way that even my daughter could understand. She listened about the symptoms and unusual circumstance and applied her knowledge and experience to help us. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a pediatric endocrinologist.

    The doctor is very nice and knowledgeable.

    Dr.Hunter was great. We have seen another doctor at the clinic in the past and felt like we were just "blown off" but Dr. Hunter was very attentive and followed up with me the same day on test results for my daughter. Dr. Hunter was outstanding and we would definitely recommend her to others.
