I have been suffering with hormonal imbalance for five years now, I have pituitary disorder, thyroid disorder, adrenal and menopausal problems. I’ve been everywhere and Dr Huffman was the first Dr to get me feeling good again! He’s a very professional, knowledgeable, and caring dr. Highly recommend him if your having any kind of endocrine issues!

Dr Huffman is one of the BEST doctors I have ever been to. He is amazing. He’s very patient and compassionate. He truly cares about all of his patients. You might have a little wait sometimes to see him but it’s worth it! He takes time to listen to you and answer questions. Office staff is great too! Highly recommend him!

Dr Huffman is kind and caring. He listens, spends plenty of time with you, and gives exceptional care. As a busy mom of 2, I'll gladly wait longer for someone who takes the extra time to make sure things are going well for me.

I was under the care of Dr Huffman for almost 2 yrs. During this time, he did a whole lot of experimenting but came up with no answers. The receptionist really needs to be replaced! She changed my appt and didn't consult with me. My husband drove me over an hr. for her to say I changed the appt. I still had the voice mail "she" left confirming that days appt. To make it worse, she told me the Dr wasn't even there. I heard him talking, looked up and saw him. Needless to say that was my last appt.

I really like the staff. Everyone seems very helpful. Jamie is amazing! I have not had to wait long at all. I have received more information about my diabetes than any where else I have been.

The waiting is unacceptable. Over an hour and a half for a follow up. I cancelled my appointment and advised the receptionist I would not reschedule. I would seek someone that can keep up with his schedule. Very poor practice for a Doctor.

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.
