This guy is a joke he made my hand and elbow hurt so much more then did befor now im haveing a hard time doing simple tasks that i use to be abull to easly do befor i call there office and they think the patients are a joke the girls behind the counter talk about everyones private business and the docture thinks that after destroying my left arm that im just gona let him do surgery on my right then focuse on the one he messed up on after how dos that work im now seeing a new docture dont go here
Without knowing the patient it is is difficult to comment, but we certainly make the patients wishes and needs our first priority! And we always make it a point to be respectful.

I love Dr. Hubbard and all his staff they are very polite, caring, and professional. I would recommend Him to all my friends and family. I have had 3 surgeries and each time he has taken very good care of me with the greatest of results I wouldn't hesitate to see him for all of my needs in his field. Best Dr I have had in all my adult life .
When my test results came back to say I did NOT have carpal tunnel syndrome and could not be operated on, I left 3 voicemails asking how to proceed next. I have not heard from this doctor since. His reluctance to keep me as a patient once it was shown he could not operate on both my wrists was, of course, after spending over $2k on custom splints and other things. Huge regret. He was patronizing about all of my questions and also was far more interested in discussing old cameras he owned.
