Patient Comments (11)
in Kaysville, Utah |
In 2013 took my son to Dr. Huish with a elbow injury. After reviewing an x-ray, told us (with son present) his injury was a “career ending”(he plays baseball) & needed surgery. My son was devastated. He wanted to schedule surgery in 2 wks, however we got a 2nd opinion at Primary, who recommended PT before going to surgery, thank goodness. W/O having surgery, my son played HS baseball & still playing in college. Hopefully he’s improved his personnel skills & get 2nd opinion w/ aggressive surgeon

He is carpal Tunnel surgery on me, and Thumb Joint Replacement. He resected the Trapizium in my wrist and was to do a tendon transfer from my arm to fill in that hollow space where the Trapizium used to be. Then that tendon was to harden and also scar tissue was to build up and stabilize my wrist. Well Huish DID NOT do the tendon transfer so now my whole wrist has collapsed, and my dominate hand will be crippled for the REST OF MY LIFE. More surgery needed now. Awful Doctor.
in Layton, UT |
Dr. Huish had me come into his office twice. He referred me to have an EMG prior to any physical exam. The referall paperwork for the EMG was out of date and I had to find someone on my own to get an EMG. When I returned with my EMG, I waited for over 30 minutes while I could hear him talking to another patient in the next room about basketball. He came into my room, took one look at the result, did NO diagnostic exams no physical exam and told me I had ALS. How can you diagnose w/o exam?
in Bountiful UT |
Worst Dr I have ever seen. Instead of fixing my shoulder he made it worse. I had a torn rotater cuff. I still have a torn rotater cuff. He had told me before surgery he would repair while in surgery. He also decided instead of repairing my tendon he just cut it away and left it hanging in my arm. I had no idea there was even a problem with me tendon had he told me he was going to just cut it away I would have went to my brothers DR. I now have worse issues now than before I had the surgery..
in North Salt Lake |
Dr. Huish fit me in to a busy schedule with minimal notice. He and his staff were pleasant, explained my situation well, and ultimately resolved my problem. This was an exceptional health care experience.
in North Salt Lake, Utah |
Dr. Huish was very professional, Explained things well, returned after hours calls well and made good follow-up after surgery.
in Syracuse, Utah |
He listens well, he is very knowledable, and he is exceptionally professional.
Salt Lake City, UT |
The man has no bedside manner. I saw his PA more than I saw him. He finally told me I must have fibromyalgia with no diagnostic testimg because he didn't know what to do for me. I wish I hadnt wasted my time seeing him. He does have excellent staff who were very helpful.
in Salt Lake City, UT |
He is a puppet. I don't believe him to be trustworthy. Looked the other way when confronted with a problem.
Atlanta, GA |
He is an awesome Dr. Would highly recommend. He did both my carpel tunnel releases and left tendinitis elbow at the same time! He did an excellent job! Love be him! Kind and caring and listens
in Bountiful, UT |
We couldn't have asked for better or more prompt service than we received with Dr. Huish and his staff. They are a knowledgeable and caring team of professionals who made our experience all around wonderful. We felt our daughter was in the BEST hands with Dr. Huish and through his work, she'll be able to heal fully and be back playing the sports she loves. She broke her clavicle in a game of basketball.
