My daughter is in her mid 20s and had a herniated disc. She ended up with Dr Huler through Ortho Indy emergency care. Her pain never went away after surgery, and he acted like she was lying about it.

Dr. Huler is an excellent surgeon, he isn't much on bedside manner. He comes across as condescending to his patients. Speaking with other people in the waiting area, he isn't a people person, but does good work if you can get past the way he presents himself.

Over 9 years, Dr. Huler performed 4 surgeries eventually fusing me from C2 to T1 using cadaver bone. He and Dr. Kylene Huler saved my life and my sanity. He even detected the presence of bilateral kidney cancer. If I could give him more than 5 stars, I would.
