Testimonials from patients of Dr. Gunter

from Lynn in NV February 28, 2018 for Michael J. Gunter, MD

On New Year's Eve a few years ago, my husband had experienced terrible abdominal pain for hours as we drove home from California. When we got home, he called Dr. Gunter's office. He was supposed to be off that night and had asked another VIP to cover for him. However, he knew that we were not pleased with the other doctor and that his condition could be serious. He handled it himself… See more

Dr. Gunter has been my physician for 20 years. He has treated me for numerous injuries while playing senior softball for 14 years. He also discovered diabetes early enough that I was able to treat with diet and exercise and am now diabetes free. He has enabled me to reach 82 in good health and physically active. He is without a doubt the best doctor I have ever had. I hope he is able to… See more

from Betty in NV February 26, 2018 for Michael J. Gunter, MD

Our friend first and then our doctor, Dr. Gunter is a very caring compassionate soul. He detected a very small sign of heart trouble and referred me to an appropriate doctor and I subsequently had heart surgery. I believed he was instrumental in giving me years with my grandchildren that I might not have had.

from lynn March 28, 2017 for Michael J. Gunter, MD

On New Year's Eve a few years ago, my husband was in excruciating pain after driving from California home to Las Vegas. We called Dr. Gunter, who was off for the first time in years and at a block party. He knew that we did not like the doctor on call and took immediate charge, scheduling my husband for surgery. He always goes out of his way for his patients. He is a jewel in the desert… See more

January 2000 I accompanied my husband to visit his new GP in Las Vegas to renew his prescriptions. We moved here a few weeks prior from California. Each of us had our annual physicals before we left and felt that our health was in good shape for our ages, early and late 50's. Low and behold, after checking out my husband Dr Gunter asked if he could listen to my heart. I was not expecting… See more
