This was my first appointment with Dr. Hunter, who is replacing Dr. Kwiatkowski as my primary care physician. Dr. K is retiring. I was very impressed with Dr. Hunter's grasp of my overall health during this first meeting. He was very easy to talk to. I have the utmost confidence that he will do an excellent job regarding all facets of my personal health. I look forward to working with him for many years.
