I am currently visiting but will be relocating here. I was having severe pain in my shoulder, believed to be a result of an injury sustained while walking my rambunctious dog on leash. My son, who does live here and is a current patient, suggested I call DOC for an appt. Fortunately, I was "assigned" to Dr Huff. Dr Huff and his entire staff was very thorough. Dr Huff took his time and gave me detailed information. He made sure I understand his diagnosis and my treatment alternatives.

Wanted the best and got the best with Dr. Huff. Needed an elbow specialist for a complicated fracture and knew I'd found him when he answered ALL of my questions (and there were many!) matter-of-factly and thoroughly. Impressive surgery and follow-up care. All staff were total pros and handled all of my concerns every step of the way. I felt I was in the best place and got the best care available in Las Vegas.
Las Vegas, NV |
Dr. Huff was not my original surgeon, as my accident occurred out of town. Once he saw me, post surgery, he was very patient with me, explaining what was happening and how the healing process worked. I had lots of questions and he answered them thoroughly. Thank you Dr. Huff.
