What People Say About Dr. John Huggins, MD
Dr. Huggins is a fine problem solver! He is a down-to-earth people-person. He did emergency gallbladder surgery on me, and saw a breast tumor others had missed. He did an excellent job on the following mastectomy. I trust him explicitly. And am grateful our community has such a fine medical resource. 5 stars, no question!

×Post a ResponseAre you Dr. John Huggins, MD?
Dr. Huggins performed a somewhat complicated gallbladder surgery on my 80 year old father yesterday. I had serious worries due to my father's health issues. Dr. Huggins put those worries to rest. The surgery went well and exceeded my expectations in all ways. Spent a lot of time talking to me after surgery and was very thorough. Never met him prior to pre op as my father was an emergency admit. He gave me more days with my father thanks to his expertise and professionalism. thanks for that.
