I found Doctor Huxstet to be very thorough in his examination of my problem. He spoke to me at great lengths and made me feel at ease. His preliminary findings confirmed what I had suspected and he scheduled me for testing immediately. I am very pleased with his ability to diagnose my problem almost immediately. I would recommend him to anyone who has issues with there hands.
