He mentioned some Parkinsonian. Later that week i contacted his office to see if i needed Parkinson meds. His nursed responded he never said i had Parkinson. I asked about the Parkinsonian. She replied he never said it and yet, i had never heard the term prior to the exam. My pulmonary doctor asked for my neurologist to check my medical condition if was neuromuscular. Dr. Huffman referred me back to the pulmonary doctor which confused both of us. My migraines were getting worse and he referred me to a Neuro Optimologost. After the diagnosis, Dr. Huffman referred me to a Neuro ENT. I fired dr. HUFFMAN.

Dr. Huffman is knowledgeable and caring. He spent time getting to know me and my health concerns. I am now migraine free (most of the time). Before seeing Dr. Huffman, Nothing worked to control my migraines. The office staff is always kind and helpful.

Dr. Huffman is such a down to earth professional person. He made me feel extremely reassured and diagnosed me after i had been to too many other doctors. I tried to make an appointment with him today and was advised that sadly he has left IU!? Does anyone know where he is now?

Dr. Huffman is the most spectacular neurologist on the planet; likely in the universe but I’d have to hop on a ride with the Star Lord to check others in the galaxy out for further review. In all seriousness, Dr. Huffman is knowledgeable, precise, empathetic, compassionate and personable. When there is not so great news, he delivers with open honesty and gives all options possible going forward. I’d recommend Dr. Brent Huffman to anyone who desires perfection in care at it’s finest!
