Learned nothing accurate. Was body shamed and blamed and the condition itself was only mentioned when my husband started asking questions. He pointed things out on the CT scans that my specialist stated were wrong. They stated the body shaming was not only not necessary but not accurate. The foundation for my condition said they'd get me to someone else if he didn't because he wasn't stating anything correctly and shouldn't be speaking with such inaccurate authority. I usually give Drs a second chance due to the days they probably started with. It's not an easy field. But this really set the ground work for a scary procedure to feel 100xs scarier that in is and no one should be treated like this.

I had co-workers refer me to this doctor, and my physician called over a referral. I called to make an appt, but the clinic wanted me to see someone else. While trying to not be difficult, it is my right to see whoever I would like, but apparently this clinic thinks otherwise???? I am a little disturbed. Dr. Huffaker is in my insurance network, he was recommended by a couple of my co-workers, my physician sent over a referral, even though not technically needed.

Dr Huffaker is compassionate and caring. He is knowledgeable about thyroid conditions and was able to explain the risks and benefits of surgery without pushing us to choose surgery as an option. He took time with us and made sure he was available to answer all of our questions.

I have Basal Cell Carcinoma on my right ear and face. Dr. Huffaker performed Moh's Surgery to remove the cancerous cells. The procedure was approx. 4 hours long. The results have been nothing short of fantastic. Because of the amount of tissue removed, a skin graft had to be done on my face/ear. He did a flawless job on it. Dr. Huffaker has the best bedside manner of any physician I have ever had. He is down to earth, honest, frank, and very professional. I HIGHLY recommend him!
