Had rotator cuff repair surgery in October. I've been very satisfied with my experience with Dr. Huffard. He clearly explained what was wrong and what he would try to do. He was also very candid regarding the factors that could impact a successful outcome. Surgery went well with no surprises. Rehab has been going smoothly.

Wish I'd read this page before consulting him, although I only had the one office visit. Agreed, extremely poor manner. Unconcerned to the point of being injurious. "Well, *this* can't be fixed," Something to the effect of "Well you're OLD" (not even normal retirement age, yet). Zero talk of pain remediation in torn bicep, the part of the injury that hurts the most, except that "biceps aren't much use anyway so if it really bothers me I could cut it in half." Hello? No suggestion of trying cortisone/lidocain injections first? The torn/attenuated bicep is only the most painful of a number of problems including broken clavicle that I agree is probably permanent. But I think I made it clear that regaining functionality is important to me (one MUST shovel snow), and he made it clear he didn't want to do anything at all. Not even string me along to bilk me of my money.

HAD a terrible procedure that did not fix my hip. He was very dismissive about my pain and more concerned about my pain meds. I went to another hip specialist and had a total hip replacement and my pain is gone along with my pain meds. My friend had the same outcome stay away

Poor bedside manner. Shows no concern about the patient's worries and health concerns, where he is bent on discharging his patient wether healed or not.

Dr. Huffard is a very honest and knowledgeable surgeon. He was able to diagnose my shoulder very quickly. After his repair I followed his direction and was able to gain full range of motion in my shoulder after p.t. I really appreciate how kind Dr. Huffard was towards me and my family.

After a couple of years bouncing between a few different specialists, I saw Dr. Huffard for my first hip procedure. He took me seriously and was finally able to diagnose the issue with my right hip. I have seen him again for the same issue in the left hip and could not have asked for a better surgeon. I must say though while he is great, I hope to never see him again as he has fixed both sides!

He has a poor bedside manner. Doesn't seem to actually listen to his patients. I felt initially like I was being blown off. Then he found out that I actually had a tear in my labrum (he thought it was simply an IT Band issue), and began to treat me better. After surgery, I didn't see him for 9 weeks, and when I had the follow up he was unsure of what the protocol actually was by was demeaning. My hip is fixed. So he doesn't have a 1.
