I would never, ever recommend Dr. Hunt to anyone. Throughout my pregnancy, I favored her out of the doctors in the practice and was so excited when she was the on call OB when I went into labor.

I showed up at the hospital at 6cm dilated, not actively contracting. Over the phone, Dr. Hunt ordered that they break my water and start me on pitocin. Knowing what I know now as an aspiring nurse midwife, I should have just went home. But I kindly requested that they rupture my membranes and see if I'd start contracting before starting pitocin. The nurse told me this was a smart option, and agreed. Dr. Hunt was NOT happy with this idea, and complained to the staff that had she known I would be "so uncooperative" that she "wouldn't have touched me." Why? It was 6pm, and she had a client in the next room who would be delivered soon, and she didn't want to drive back out at 3am and deliver me.

Well what do you know? My contractions picked up just fine without pitocin. I had my son in under 4 hours later. But the whole time she was there, she treated me with extreme disrespect, humiliating me for my age (19) and even making inappropriate comments about me to the nursing staff in the hallway, IN FRONT OF MY OWN PARENTS. I was ashamed and scared of her during labor, 2 things a pregnant patient should never be made to feel.

She insisted on giving me pitocin when I was already 9cm dilated. Because you know, it was 10pm, and she wanted to get the show on the road. I went from 6-9cm in under 3 hours. There was no need for pitocin.

She made me feel extremely bad about my delivery, and the birth of my child. So bad that I never went back for a followup after delivery, because the prospect of seeing her made me *that* uncomfortable.

But hey, it inspired me to become more educated on my birthing options, and now I'm in school to be a midwife. And I pray to god I never make a laboring woman feel the way she made me feel.

I would never recommend this doctor or this office. I was a patient for 3 years, and even just going for my annual gyno exams was a very unsatisfactory experience. Dr. Hunt would spend less than 3 minutes with me - and yes, complete the "full" annual exam in this time frame, so you can imagine how impersonal and abrupt it was. She wouldn't take time to answer any of my questions - or even listen to my questions. Her office also has a policy that you have to get your blood pressure taken every six months in order to continue your birth control prescription. I would make my blood pressure appointments to be either the first appt. of the day or during lunch so I wouldn't have to miss work and they would NEVER take me on time. Often, I would see the person who was to be taking my BP talking and laughing in the back office or eating breakfast or lunch, completely ignoring the fact that she had a patient scheduled. When I would ask how much longer it would be until I was seen, the front office staff would roll their eyes. On more than one occasion, they didn't even call the prescription into my pharmacy, so I would go days without the pill until they would finally call it in.

Furthermore, when you do get your BP taken, be prepared to sit in a chair in a room the size of a closet that has a kitchen sink and counters - and on those counters, right next to the chair you're sitting on, will be trays full of other patients' urine samples.

As I said, I went to her only for my annual exams. I can't imagine going to this office during a pregnancy and for birth coaching and delivery. I've since found another wonderful gyno who treats patients with respect, maintains a beautiful clean office, and who I trust to one day delivery my children.

likes to deliver babies early at her convenience but does not tell you that. She suggests the baby is underweight and it is best to schedule an early delivery. I understand that there probably aren't many doctors around who want to go the the hospital at 2am and watch me push for 15 hours when they have a full day scheduled at the office starting at 9am, BUT there is no truth in what she communicates to her patients as to why it should be scheduled
