Dr. Huffman is very knowledgable in his field. You may wait a little extra time to get in to see him, but once he enters the room he stays until you have asked all your questions. You never feel like he's rushing. He makes you feel like you are the only patient in the office. His office staff has been very accommodating making appointments for me and following up on my phone calls. I'm an RN and have seen many MD's over my 38 year career. This guy is top of the MD line!!

Staff could be more helpful and mire empathetic, in particular front desk staff. Clinicians seem to be fine but front desk acts as if patients are bothering them. Wait times are well over an hour just to get to the exam room then another 15 to 30 mins wait for doctor.

Appt to see if premenpause causing migraines.I waited 2 hours.He asked me a few questions and took a look over my body sent me to get blood drawn.2nd appt he went over results.Which I asked ?s & he kept speaking in Dr terms.Said for me to take diet pill so my problems would go away.which no it wont could have made me have a syndrome.Then in the dr. notes found out he said so many lies about what he went over with me and also about what I said. Do not go here. It can cost your life.
