In the past two years, we have been very satisfied with the support and response we have received from Dr Gunter and his staff. It is a great relief to know that if you have an emergency situation or concern that you can always get an immediate response. This type of feeling has made me very pleased that I joined the MDVIP group.

Hi Doc. I hope u know how much I appreciate the exceptional care and time you take to keep me healthy. I don’t want to go to any other Doctor for any reason so please don’t retire for a long time because I am planning to be around for at least 25 more years. Hugs

Every time my husband and I need medical attention, he is always ready to help. In a city in which there is a shortage of doctors, it is comforting to know that we have one of the best.

from Johan in NV February 28, 2020 for Michael J. Gunter, MD

I have been a patient of Dr. Gunter's since approximately 2011. He is an outstanding example of just what one wants and needs in a family physician and then some. He spends as much time as is needed towards my care and his referrals to specialists have been spot on. I am one grateful patient and feel truly blessed our paths crossed.
