She is a clear communicator, asked good questions that prompted things I had forgotten to share. She is reassuring and supportive. One thing I particularly appreciated, something I have never experienced at another provider, is how she set expectations about how the process would go. That we would be scheduling a lot of tests and that she wouldn't be following up with me after each one of them - and then told me why - that one test result might mean one thing when considered on its own, but something completely different when considered with the other test results. That she needed to look at it all together and that we would discuss at our next appointment. She urged me to not Google individual results, that she and her team would 100% reach out immediately if something needed rapid attention. It sounds SO SIMPLE, but it was SO HELPFUL and I wonder why other providers elsewhere don't do that. Her calm confidence was much appreciated. I did not rate Dr. Gunter regarding discussion of treatment options as we don't have any at this time. National Jewish Health Patient– August, 2022 Dr Gunther is great.
