Interviewer: Alright, Hello Cheryl Carroll!

Cheryl Carroll: Hello

Interviewer: Thanks for being here today, we’re going to talk about Barrett Gunter and what you observe from your perspective what he likes to educate people about…

Cheryl Carroll: Oh my goodness, yes he does, he likes to educate all people, all people! I met him many years ago when I first came to Durham Women’s Clinic and now Women’s Health Alliance, I’m a certified nurse midwife and have been here for some time, and Dr. Gunter has been absolutely wonderful he really helped orient me to the practice, yes I came with these great skills that I had in school but to enhance that and put into actual practice, he gave me a practical application way of instituting all those things that I learned, he gave me a good way to do it. And so whenever I would come to him to consult, you know, he was very methodical in the questions that he asked you, so you knew that you had to have a certain amount of information already, don’t just come and ask him a question cold, know a little bit about your subject matter before you talk to him, because he was going to ask you five questions for every question you ask him. So, it didn’t take me long to figure that out, I mean within the first year of our relationship I was like, “I’m going to ask him a question, let me look this up first” and I would have quite a few of the answers before I even got it from him, but he even does the same thing to everybody it wasn’t just me, anybody, you know whether you’re a nurse, whether you’re a midwife, whether you’re a tech, no matter who you are because I think the goal is to educate and to make you think about what is it that you are looking at, what is it that you would like to do for this person, what’s the best approach to treat this person, and when he speaks to patients, again it’s very thoughtful very methodical, because he wants to cover all the bases to make sure you are educated about whatever is going on with your body. And, I think you know when I say I would trust him to deliver my baby, thankfully I’m not there anymore, ok, but you know, that says a lot, I would trust him with my babies, and I would trust him with my grandbabies, so, good man, good physician, good OB, alright…
