Dr. Huang’s office is highly professional and exceedingly organized. With check in, x-ray, consult and a follow up plan, I was impressively in and out in under an hour. He listens well, was not rushed as so many providers are today, and was very affable. He seems personally invested in my having a good outcome and was genuinely interested in what physical activities I need to get back to post-recovery. I feel reassured and like I am in good hands. I know that knee surgery is in my near future, but I am not worried or hesitant because I know that Dr. Huang will be at the helm of my care.

I am a biomedical scientist and know more than a little about human body function and biomechanics. After badly damaging my left rotator cuff, I was referred to two shoulder specialist in the Springs area by my trusted physical therapist. Michael Weinstein had a fine reputation as a surgeon, but I found him to be a self-centered jerk who barely acknowledged the several questions I posed to him. Apparenty too busy, he rushed me out of his 5 minute consult with my questions still hanging, thus I visited Michael Huang, MD. I found him to be equally trained & quaified, but also a decent, respectful physician; the exact anthesisis of Dr. W. Chosing Dr. Huang was an easy decision resulting not only in a good physical outcome, but a relationship with a surgeon I've trusted to respond to me with well-researched answers. True, my shoulder might have healed well after surgury with Dr. W., but I'd also have likely decked him and gotten arrested if he disrespected me again. Not a good outcome!

I’ve been seeing Dr Huang for many years. He has given me many extra years with my knee issue. He is highly knowledgeable, very easy to speak with, asks questions instead of just talking to me, he really cares. Hard to find all qualities in a specialist, but he easily achieves that goal. I would never think about changing doctors, I’ll follow him. His assistant, Kristen, is highly knowledgeable and very easy to speak with. Dr. Huang knows exactly what I expect. Finally, he has convinced me of getting knee surgery very soon.

I have been seeing Dr Huang since 2014. He has fixed labral tears in both of my hips, repaired one shoulder, and will be repairing my other shoulder when cortisone injections stop helping with the pain. He is thorough, patient, and a truly amazing physician/surgeon. He always has time for my questions, is fantastic at explaining things, and always takes the time to make sure I am satisfied with my treatment. His staff is also fantastic. His repairs are truly amazing. I am an active swimmer and water aerobics instructor and he always keeps in mind how important those things are to me when he treats me. I also love the fact that he is truly candid about what to expect with any services, whether it's an injection, surgery and recovery, or the option of not treating the injury at all. I always feel educated about my condition by the time I leave his office. I won't see anyone else for joint issues!

Dr Huang has done surgery on my hip, knees, and shoulders. I wouldn’t go to anyone else for my care. Dr Huang is very knowledgeable and experienced. He takes into consideration the patients injury and quality of life due to the injury. He is very kind, caring, and compassionate. He and his assistant, Kristin, are the best in town. His staff are very friendly and dedicated to helping their patients. I highly recommend Dr. Huang and his staff!
