Special Interests

My clinical area of interest is in adult asthma, specifically adult onset and difficult to treat asthma. I hope to continue contributing to the science of airway inflammation in asthma via clincial and translational research. In our labs, we are working to characterize the phenotypes and endotypes of asthmatics, with the ultimate goal of tailored therapy for each patient with asthma.

Dr Gunter is a great dr, knowledgeable and caring. I highly recommend her.

National Jewish Health PatientNovember, 2021
To repeat, she is exceptionally competent. I feel very lucky to have been assigned to her.

National Jewish Health PatientNovember, 2021
*Dr. Guntur is the most caring and informative physician I have ever had.

National Jewish Health PatientNovember, 2021
We wrote a glowing report about Dr. Guntur, and the survey timed out. Dr. Gunter was fabulous and we cannot recreate our comments at this time. She is very proactive and is looking into aspects of [my husband's] lung health that have been previously ignored. We can tell this by seeing the diagnostic testing plan she has so quickly put together. We have so many wonderful things to tell about Dr. Guntur. We wish we had known about National Jewish Health two years ago.

National Jewish Health PatientNovember, 2021
Dr Guntur is simply the best!

National Jewish Health PatientNovember, 2021
Dr. Gunter is GREAT!!! I have a complex problem and she is doing a great job being the quarterback!

National Jewish Health PatientNovember, 2021
Dr. Guntur is a very skilled and empathetic listener and she made me feel vey comfortable. She also is very inciteful, capable and has a great sense of humor. I am looking forward to talking to her again.

National Jewish Health PatientOctober, 2021
I always feel like she doesn't know what to do with me.

National Jewish Health PatientOctober, 2021
I NEVER feel rushed at my NJH appointments- I feel LISTENED to.

National Jewish Health PatientOctober, 2021
Dr Gunter has, from the beginning, been interested in (1) helping my breathing improve, (2) helping me feel better overall [protected health information], (3) solving health issues we've identified as part of treating my breathing problems [PHI] identified during the course of my treatment with her. Dr Gunter is thorough, caring and leaves no stone unturned to get at the heart of what's going on. In addition, she listens to her patients - giving them time and attention they and their questions and concerns deserve.
