Dr. Hunter preformed cataract surgery on both my eyes which was PERFECT! From our first meeting to my last postop visit, he never seemed hurried, patiently explaining everything which gave me an overall feeling of complete confidence on the outcome of the surgeries. I give him our highest recommendations!
