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.

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.

from Donnell in NV March 20, 2018 for Michael J. Gunter, MD

Dr. Gunter practices medicine they way it should be done and has treated me like a friend. I have never felt like he was in a hurry and just wanted to see how many patients he could grind thru his office. It is so refreshing to have your doctor take the time to be sure you understand whatever is going on. I might not be alive if Dr. Gunter hadn't noticed irregularities in my blood work… See more
