Camille Hunter, M.D.

Since I was a small child I’ve felt a strong connection to the older generation. My grandparents helped raise me and taught me about respect, responsibility, perseverance and unconditional love.  As a young adult, my intellectual curiosity and interest in problem solving influenced my decision to pursue internal medicine.

During my internal medicine residency at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital, I often found myself wishing I could have known my patients before they got sick or that I could have followed them after leaving the hospital.  In contrast, whenever I finally had a chance to sit down and talk with a patient, I felt a special connection with them that gave me a lasting sense of satisfaction and joy in my work. I realized that I treasure significant long-term relationships with patients, especially seniors.
