    How was your appointment with Dr. Hunt?

    Jan 30, 2020
    My experience with Dr Hunt is at the highest level. Not only he is excellent at what he does, he is also caring, friendly, on time, thorough, and easy to comunicate with. He made sure I understand the process, and answered my questions and concerns.He removed 3 polyps during my procedure. 1 of the polyps was adenomatous. He wrote a letter to me and expained about my byopsy results. He also made suggestions on how to adopt healthy habits to lower risk of future colon problems. I higly recommend Dr Hunt.
