Getting Started

Our Caring Staff

DR. SPENCER COCHRAN: One of the outstanding things about the Gunter Center is the tremendous staff that we have. Each of our staff members are true professionals who give the utmost care and respect for each of our patients. Patients, when they come to the Gunter Center, can expect to be treated professionally, courteously, and also with the highest degree of confidentiality.

Our Surgery Center

DR. JACK P. GUNTER: We do all of our cases at the Texas Institute for Surgery Specialty Hospital. This is on the Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas Campus and it’s a new facility that has all the up-to-date equipment and a hospital that we really enjoy doing our surgery at. I think you will enjoy it too because all the patients that go there have very good comments about it. We have nine operating rooms and we have nine overnight stay rooms there, if the patients need to stay or if they want to stay. And there is a doctor there that stays in the hospital 24-hours a day and is on call if any of the patients there need to be seen.

Located in Dallas-Ft. Worth, TX

FEMALE VOICE: Our practice is conveniently located several miles north of downtown Dallas in the heart of the Dallas, Forth Worth Metroplex. For patients coming in from out of town, we are a short 20-minute drive from Dallas Left Field Airport and 40 minutes from DFW International Airport. There are several nearby hotels where our out of town patients can stay during their visit to Dallas. If you are traveling to our practice for your nasal surgery and would like further information or assistance in planning your trip, please contact our office, our friendly staff will be happy to help you.

In Office and Internet Consultations

DR. SPENCER COCHRAN: Rhinoplasty consultations in our practice take approximately one hour. The consultations begin with the patients undergoing photographs. The patients will then meet with the doctors and then we’ll sit down together and analyze those photographs. The photographs allow us also to develop a surgical plan and to define the goals and propose changes to surgery.

After meeting with the doctors then the patients will meet with the nurses and the nurses will review postoperative instructions and walk them through each stage of the recovery process. The patients will then meet with a patient coordinator who will talk with the patients about scheduling and the cost of surgery.

DR. JACK P. GUNTER: Many of our patients come from outside the Dallas, Fort Worth area and to better serve these patients we developed an internet consultation. What the patient has to do is to fill out a medical history and say what they think is wrong with their nose and if they have any breathing problems and get six standardized photographs and send these in by email. And from this we can pretty well tell whether a patient is going to be a good candidate or not.

And if we think the patient is a good candidate, what we do is to send the patient back an email telling the candidate the goal for the surgeries and giving them the approximate cost of the surgery and the anesthesia and the hospital. If the patient wants to proceed they must make a trip to Dallas for a personal consultation so that we can make certain that our diagnosis is correct. If the patient is not a good candidate, well then we write them back and tell them that and it saves them a trip to Dallas. If you’re interested in an internet consultation you can look up the Internet Consultation page on our website and see what we’re talking about.
