Dr. Rehak performed carpal tunnel surgery on both of my hands within 3 weeks of each other. He was professional, to the point, honest, valued my opinion and input, and explained everything about my condition and the procedure. I definitely recommend Dr. Rehak and Hughston Clinic.

Review for Dr. David Rehak, MD

Dr. Watson is an amazing physician. He is caring, compassionate, respectful and courteous. He explains procedures simply yet thoroughly and takes the times to answer all questions. I have no qualms about referring anyone to him and have referred several friends.

Review for Dr. Randall Ruark, MD

I have trigger finger surgery and the procedure was done in an excellent manner and the end result was perfect. A few years ago. Dr. Rehal did ulnar nerve release, and this was likewise extremely successful. He is a first-class physcian and surgeon in every way, and I heartily recommend him.
