09/10/12 5 4 5 5 Dr Hunt is an amazing doctor. He is caring, kind and compassionate. He was amazing with my prenatal care while I was pregnant with my first baby. He was extremely thorough, he sent me for several ultrasounds as I had a rough time at the beginning. He preformed a C- Section delivery for me, and he was so great (our son was born 09/13/12). I recovered from the Caesarean within 2 weeks and I believe it is all becasue Dr Hunt is so great at what he does. I gave Dr. Hunt a 4 for being punctual because you do have to wait later then your appointment time, but he is well worth waiting for. I believe the only reason you have to wait past your appointment time is because he is so thorough with his patients. Donna, Dr Hunt’s receptionist knows who you are when you walk into the office and is always so nice. I will use Dr Hunt for any future pregnancies and have recommended him to a lot of people already. If you are referred to Doctor Hunt count your blessings because he is absolutely amazing!  Respond

24/05/12 5 5 5 5 I had Dr. Hunt for both of my pregnancies, one of which was incredibly difficult, as well as my tubal ligation, which didn't go quite as planned. He has excellent bedside manner, and is very caring and thorough. He takes the time to explain everything, is very reassuring, listens to any questions you may have. You sometimes have to wait, but he delivers babies..that's a hard thing to schedule around. The office staff actually called me once when he was going to be behind so I didn't come in and wait for an hour before seeing him. Fantastic! First Class doctor! I would highly recommend him.  Respond

We highly recommend him, and will definately use him for our future children.  Respond

12/03/12 5 4 5 5 I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Hunt! Such a kind, caring and compassionate man! Has given me excellent prenatal care with my son. Dilligent, and thourough- sent me for ultrasounds and tests just to be sure- even if there was the smallest risk. I feel very confident recommending him to anyone! I will personally thank him when I see him for my 6 week check-up in a few weeks time. I am sorry he wasn't on call to deliver my son, but I am bringing him in to see Dr. Hunt on my visit. I also have high praise for his receptionist Donna who has always been very pleasant and helpful each time I'm there and knows me by name whenever I see her, which makes you feel more appreciated and not just "another name" on a chart.  Respond

28/08/09 3 4 3 3 I initially went to see Dr Hunt for a lump in my vulva. He told me it was never cancer (hadn't even thought that personally). Guess what - it was cancer! After I had paid big bucks to take the ferry to the mainland to go to the Cancer Agency, I find out that he should have issued me a free ferry pass. When I called his office about it, they explained that they were so upset at the time, they forgot to give it to me. They would not reimburse me for their error & I was out almost $100. Not impressed!  See Responses

30/06/09 5 5 5 5 He is by far the best in this area in Nanaimo (in my opion). He has GREAT bedside mannors and is very good at explaining ANY proceedure that you may need! He has looked after me for 2 pregnancies! If I know anyone who needs a specialist in this field he is the FIRST on my list! I know that he is ALWAYS keeping updated on current issues, ideas and etc! He is ALWAYS taking classes or reading up on the latest and greatest stuff! VERY easy to talk to, very imformative; but also very hard to get into :)  Respond

05/12/07 5 5 5 5 I have a very high regard for Dr. Hunt. I had ovarian cancer six years ago and he has been my gynecologist for five years. He is always extremely compassionate. He takes the time to answer questions and to fully explain what he is doing before he does it. His medical knowledgeable is vast and not just in the realm of women's health. Dr. Hunt is very positive, thorough and personable. I respect him and his advice and I'm very grateful that I was referred to him. I couldn't have asked for a better specialist. He's "number one" in my book.  Respond

25/10/07 5 5 5 5 Knowledgeable, patient, gentle, empathetic, caring and respectful during peri-menopause, D&C, later hysterectomy (at MY insistence), post-op care was premium in that he explained whatever was done and listened to my squickiness about having "packing" in place (not done at my request). I would have enjoyed having him as an OB if I had been of childbearing years when I moved to Nanaimo. I'd recommend him to any woman.  Respond

25/02/07 5 5 5 Dr. Hunt saw me when my regular OBGYN was away. He is sooo nice and very gentle. Wish I could have switched to him for the delivery. He gave me options that my other DR did not, which allowed to me to deliver drug free without the "ring of fire" Thanks Dr. Hunt!!!  Respond
