Patient Comments (2)
in Port Jefferson, NY |
Dr. Huston was calm and reassuring to me when I was nervous before my procedure. She treated my kindness and took extra time to explain every step of the procedure before she began and during the excision. She skillfully made the smallest incision possible so that my scarring would be practically invisible. Her nurses were also caring and very professional. I recommend Dr. Huston very highly.
