Dr. Hunniford was a great physician. He took the time to explain information in a way that was easy to understand. The only downside was the nursing staff who seemed a bit incompetent.

Doctor Hunnifor is excellent. Always attentive, and take the needed time to listen and explain things. The wait time was today was due to a mix-up with ZocDoc. They did their best to accommodate me as quickly as possible, which was very nice.

I was seen right away by the doctor and his assistant once I was taken to the exam room. Gretchen and the doctor were very friendly and apologized to me since one of the registration staff members was not very polite. When I first arrived I provided my insurance card and ID to the registration person, but she then said that my card had a different PCP listed so I could not see Dr. Hunniford. I informed her that I already contacted my provider and asked them to "assign" (the term the insurance company uses, I guess I'm not allowed to show that I have a choice!) Dr. Hunniford as my PCP. The insurance company made the change but my new card would not arrive in the mail in time for my appointment, but it was OK for me to go ahead with the appointment because the name of the PCP on the card doesn't matter. Well, I guess the registration didn't get the memo and I had to get her to have another staff person verify this information. To me, this is an example of how hard it is today to simply go and see a physician. It's not that actual medical care has diminished, but the staff/clerical people have no interest in interacting with patients. I don't blame Dr. Hunniford or Gretchen at all, its simply a systemic problem that I believe major health care organizations need to address. Outside of this problem, my experience was very good.

Great Doctor! It is always a pleasure seeing him and his nurse Gretchen... she's his right hand woman! I would suggest Thorek Memorial Hospital focus more of their attention and energy on the front desk/registration/check-in staff, at least in this area of the hospital. It is always very chaotic and disorganized. Nothing is worse for a patient in need of care when all you see is ladies chatting and gossiping and giggling behind the desk while you are left to wait in uncertainty. They rarely have the answers to the questions they are being asked and from a patients perspective this can be quite daunting and discomforting.

The wait was a tad long, although for a Doctor's office not that bad. However, before Dr. Hunniford came to see me I heard him in the hall taking extra time to reassure another patient, who was presumably very stressed, that everything would be fine and whatever he/she had was not abnormal for someone of his/her age. I think that extra little wait is just Dr. Hunniford taking the extra time to be attentive to his patients. He obviously cares and was extremely knowledgeable and thorough going over everything for me as well. I will definitely keep him as my primary care physician. A fringe benefit that I didn't know before seeing him is that the hospital his office is in has practically everything else you could need as well, so if you need a specialist, he knows them right down the hall.

The waiting room time was actually really short and the nurses/receptionists were lovely and polite. That being said I waited in the exam room for nearly an hour before Dr. Hunniford actually saw me. He spoke to me like a child and seemed to dismiss my concerns about an embarrassing affliction. I felt like I couldn't actually explain to him what was wrong and felt like I wasn't being listened to. Nothing was solved and I'm off to see a different doctor.

I thought Dr. Hunniford was great! The problem/issue I had was with the ZocDoc app. The appointment was for 1:00 pm and all the reminders that they sent me confirmed it was for 1:00 pm; however, the doctor's office showed that my appointment was at 2:30pm. As a result, I was there for 2-1/2 hours for a simple appointment. ZocDoc has work to do!!!

Dr. Hunniford is an incredibly considerate and thoughtful doctor. His nurse Aurelia is extremely efficient and courteous while performing her duties. aside from the chaos while checking in to The ambulatory care unit, it is refreshing to know that you will be handled with ease and care by Dr. Hunniford and his amazing nurse Aurelia. Dr. Hunniford and his nurse Aurelia come highly recommend from me as they should most deservingly so be.

He gave me the idea of that not every Dr. is there to help you. I was taking Narcotics to "mask" my pain and John said I will try this combination and see if it helps.....been only 2 weeks but the combination has transformed my mindset and how to deal with the pain I have without narcotic's and I am truly thankful for that. Plus he doesn't sugar coats stuff...he calls it like he sees it and if the Dr's I had treating me like this in the past I would have never know how addictive prescription medication was and I would probably be in a better place health wise.
