Dr. Hunter is a family physician with a special interest in geriatrics.

Dr. Hunter served 13 years of active duty and reserve time in the United States Army Medical Corps.
When Dr. Hunter decided to retire from the Army, he looked for the right place to “settle into civilian life,” and the right health care setting to continue his family practice. He enjoys family medicine because of the variety and the continuity it offers. Dr. Hunter shares,
“I like to get to know my patients, and to treat the young and the old. This allows me to do that, as I treat whole families.” Family practice also permits Dr. Hunter to treat patients and their families throughout their lives.
Dr. Hunter is married and has two sons. He enjoys bowling.
