I came in for pain and lack of mobility in my shoulder, following an injury working out. By the time I was able to see him, my shoulder had mostly healed, to help speed up the process he suggested a steroid injection to reduce the inflammation. Shoulder feels much better after one day. He was very nice and helpful.

I was able to get an emergency appointment with Dr. Huff and I couldn’t be more satisfied. He was very good in discussing my situation and what needed to be done. I will be going through more procedures with him, but couldn’t be more satisfied and comfortable at this point.

Only here for the winter and had some severe pain from a new rotator cuff procedure that was developed at Harvard School of Medicine. Only approximately a 1000 have been performed nationwide. Dr. Huff took the time to pull the procedure up, take x-rays and then alleviate the pain I was having. Great Doctor who took the time to explain everything, would highly recommend. Great staff too, from front desk to the nurse.

I went in to have my broken collarbone looked by Dr. Huff. I had my X-ray report and CD copy with me which I gave to the assistant. I waited in the exam room for 25 minutes. Then an assistant came in to fit me for a sling telling me the doctor wanted me to use it for a month then come back. Obviously the broken bone was a cracked bone. Nothing to do but heal. The issue: I never met Dr. Huff. Never saw his face. I’m sure he read the X-ray and told me the right thing to do via his assistant. But, confidence in a doctor is built on interaction. Who is Dr. Huff?
