I went to see Dr. Huffman to have a blackhead removed, but she failed to accurately and professionally execute a simple procedure and my skin got worse. When I met with Dr. Huffman again to see if my condition could be resolved, she use scare tactics saying that it would leave me with scars.I found another practice with an amazing dermatologist who treated me and my skin finally looks good.I would not recommend going to Dr. Huffman- she is inexperienced, callous and lacking in empathy.

We highly recommend Dr. Huffman. She is knowledgeable and personable. Dr. Huffman took her time during my examination and clearly answered my questions and addressed my concerns.
Winnetka, IL |
I found Nicole Huffman arrogant. She prescribed a topical cortisone drug which probably triggered my 1st rosecea episode. She's not a good listener and after my 1st visit with her, I never felt she cared about my well being.

Dr. Huffman is an excellent dermatologist - she is always willing to answer questions, talk through an issue until you feel comfortable, and is never condescending. She is calm, approachable, and comforting. I see her several times a year for post-melanoma checkups, and trust her judgment implicitly.
