Terrible doctor that spends literally 60 seconds with you and leaves without saying a word on what will happen, what he thinks is wrong and if he can help or not. Just pathetic

I brought my daughter to see Dr. Huff due to a broken elbow that requires surgery. Dr. Huff was very thorough explaining her injury and how he will fix it. I never felt rushed and he answered all of our questions. The office staff was exceptional. They got me in to see Dr. Huff very quickly. They were friendly, welcoming & extremely helpful in all aspects of our appointment from checking in to checking out.

Best experience at a doctor I have ever had. Friendly and professional. My appointment was at 10:30 and they saw me at 10:30. Fabulous! I was in an out including examination, X-rays, an injection and checkout in less than an hour. Dr Hoff and his staff get it. Kudos!!!

Staff was efficient and polite. Explained everything in terms the average person can comprehend. The most important aspect of a drs. visit is not wasting valuable time sitting and waiting for your name to be called. This did not happen. I was processed through paperwork into his office and met with a charming nurse who made me feel comfortable and less than 5 min the Dr. arrived and treated me. Couldn’t ask for more.

I saw Dr. Huff yesterday for what I was certain would end scheduling rotator cuff surgery. I had one shoulder done elsewhere 3 years ago-not a good experience. My x-rays were done in the same office, allowing Dr. Huff to review them right away. He suggested less aggressive care until we are certain surgery is necessary. (not with the last guy said!) I was called back 15 minutes before my scheduled appointment and every member of the staff is amazing!
