Angie Hunt

Angie Hunt
Angie Hunt has been with us for well over five years. She is our front office manager and serves the most important role in our office as our “Insurance and Billing Manager”. During the past few years, the advent of increasing insurance plans make most of our patients’ services covered, at least to some degree, in this manner.

Angie has the difficult task of educating both herself and her patients to the intricacies of these plans, implementing them, and, insuring that the patients are treated fairly, and honorably by each of them…a tough job. She treats each task with a smile, and, with courtesy … answering each question as if it is the first time she heard it. Angie is patient, accurate, and, thorough.

Angie and her husband, Jimmy, have two daughters, Ashley and Jordan. She is very active in her church and is a wonderful singer, having performed numerous times in a trio with her sisters.
