"There is a feeling of peace and confidence when Dr. Hunt enters the room, his presents bring the assurance that all will be well and I have nothing to worry about. Dr. Hunt is very knowledgeable, kind in his approch to my needs and concerns, and he takes the time to explain what has to be done and the benefits of what has to be done. I would recommend Dr. Hunt to everybody who has a problem with their Colon/ Rectal for treatment and care. One more thing ; Dr. Hunt and his entire staff are very professional. to name a few, Nurse Patricia Flynn, Ms. Heidi and their supporting staff. After your visit with the Doctor, they always follow-up with the results of your many test and future appointments via telephone or text, to be sure that you are well informed and taken care of."

I felt like she listened to me, completely understood the situation, and offered as much information as she could to help me make informed decisions. Thank you Dr. Marti."
