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. Tahira Prendergast, 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.

Dr. Oliver went beyond the call of duty for our son during a critical situation. He made himself available to our family at all hours and has continued to follow up for years. He’s proactive making sure no child suffers due to anything the clinic/hospital can control.

Review for Dr. Kevin Collins, MD

Dr Pursifull doesn't seem to be appropriately concerned about more complex issues. Not a terrible visit, but certainly not a great one either. I prefer my physicians more engaged and compassionate.
