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.

Dr. Huler. Operated on my lower back. The surgery was successful with an immediate reduction in my back pain. Dr. Huler was very professional throughout our office visits and the surgery process. He was totally focused on the operation he was about to perform. His confidence and professionalism made my family and I quite comfortable with the procedure.
Thank you for the review!

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.
Thank you for the review, Tammy. Our patient's experience is our top priority.

First time I saw him, he brushed me off. Sent me for a MRI just in case there was really something wrong. One week later he calls and tells me he needs to speak to me about the MRI results, sounding urgent. He tells me to call back with my daytime number where I could be reached. Did so the next day. They make an appt for me to see him. He never called; went to appt. After waiting 90+ minutes after my appt. time, I left. Over two weeks later, I still don't have my test results. Malpractice?

This man is a joke. He forgot about his oath he took. He is a work comp Doctor and lied and put me through hell until the work comp board sent me to a real spine surgeon who surgically repaired my spine. I wouldn't take my worst enemy to this doctor. He is crooked and will break your back before he lets an insurance adjuster spend money to fix you correctly. Don't trust him! Ask for an Independant exam! He's not a trustworthy Doctor!

I had back surgery about 10 years ago and Dr. Huler was my doctor. He had to work around some cysts(that weren't operable) in order to operate on my back. I had been in a lot of pain. I am SO happy to report that the pain is all but gone. I had 3 levels of rods and pins put in and the surgery was a great success. Dr, Huler was also very professional, conscientious and his caring about his patients was obvious. I would highly recommend Dr. Huler, and I have on several occasions.
