Dr. Huckfeldt is the best physician I've ever met. She took the time to throughly research my condition, and I am very pleased with the results. I finally found an eye professional who provided an accurate diagnosis and prescribed the right course of treatment.

Dr. Huckfeldt had obviously prepared well for our discussion, having studied my charts and the images related to my vision problems. She reviewed these with me in detail, listened to my concerns, and clearly explained my condition. She was sincere, respectful, and professional. It was a wonderful virtual consultation.
