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

I feel that the Doctor is very thorough, concerned and ready, willing, and able to plan the appropriate program for me. I do not hesitate to make queries on a want- to- know basis.
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
Thank you Dr Gunter for being there for me. I have type 2 Diabetes, Dystonia & drug allergies. He knows that if he has to give me a new drug that I will look it up and he is fine with that. When I had to go to the hospital for emergency gall bladder surgery, he was there making sure I got through it OK
I know that if I need help he will be there for me as he was when my husband… See more
Dr Gunter is not just my primary care physician, he is an avid protector of my health. I trust him with my life. He cares. I'm lucky to call him my doctor.
Dr. Gunter (Mike) is truly amazing. You never wait in a waiting room, yet he takes the time to personalize every visit. I have the peace of mind of knowing that my calls will get returned promptly, and he knows my personal situation. He takes holistic approach and really does treat his patients as friends. I feel blessed to have Mike on my team.
I am new to Dr. Gunter's practice, but already I feel right at home. The most difficult things I have to adjust to is the relaxed pace and the one hour he usually spends with me going over my medical issues!! Truly wonderful problems to have!!
I am a health conscious 71 year old and have been blessed with no health problems-yet! Dr Gunter's routine physical and labs have been thorough and give me peace of mind that I am doing everything I can do to stay healthy. In addition he has referred me to a cardiologist for testing to make sure that my heart was in good shape as I have had close relatives that had heart issues etc. While… See more
My life circle of family and friends know how I feel about Dr. Gunter and his amazing staff I never miss an opportunity to share my many positive health experiences. Being able to contact Dr. Gunter on his cell phone (which he actually answers) is like having a doctor in the family. The comfort and security it provides is inestimable.
The staff of Cindy, T and April are phenomenal… See more
Dr. Gunter is by far the best doctor I have ever been to. He listens, he explains and is totally focused on helping his patients maintain or restore good health.
It is great to have a doctor you can have complete confidence in.
