Dr Hunter using Da Vinci Robot
I was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona. My dad was an electrician and my mom stayed at home to raise me and my two sisters. We are one-quarter Hispanic on my mom’s side, with lots of Padillas and Reynosos in the family, mostly now in California, but previously from Aguas Calientes and Tijuana, Mexico. I do speak medical Spanish.

I graduated summa cum laude and phi beta kappa from Arizona State University and attended Northwestern University Medical School, followed by OB/Gyn residency at UTMB-Galveston. Upon graduation in 1997, I moved to Harlingen to practice with one of my surgical instructors in residency. I am fully board certified in OB/Gyn, am currently an assistant clinical professor for ob/gyn at UT-Rio Grande Valley and UT Health Science Center at San Antonio, and previously at UT-Galveston Medical Branch. .
