Sharon Hunt is the BEST (and so are all the other doctors over the years).
Dr. Sharon Hunt is the consummate professional as always. Explained answers to my questions directly, honestly and completely.
Dr. Hunt should be cloned to ensure excellence in patient care for the future. Any medical provider automatically should be modeled upon her.

The best cardiologist I had for the last 15+ years. Sorry to learn that she is retiring. Hope I could get as good or near for my next appointment.

With her help, I recently achieved a major milestone; I graduated to once-a-year follow up appointments. I am doing well because of Dr. Hunt's expert care and compassion. Thank you, Dr. Hunt for excellent care!
I always recommend others to go to Stanford for care! Stanford is the best!

Dr. Hunt and fellow, Dr. Luo, are very knowledgeable, compassionate, professional, attentive, excellent listeners and communicators
All good.
I am so pleased to have Dr. Sharon Hunt for my cardiologist at Stanford. She is a gifted healer whose deeply caring presence and compassion inspire me on a daily basis to take the best care of myself. I know by reputation, that she is a brilliant leader in her field, but was pleasantly surprised by her down-to-earth personal style and her direct, common-sense approach to solving complex problems. Always personable, thorough, and efficient, she approaches near super hero status, in my eyes, because of her ability to perform open heart surgery on Wednesday mornings and still run her afternoon clinic appointments on time. Dr. Sharon Hunt is clearly one of Stanford's brightest stars. Thank you Dr. Hung, for excellent care!
Dr. Hunt was the care provider.

My experiences with Dr. Hunt have always been a pleasure & wonderful experience.
