Excellent We are both around 60 years of age and while we have been healthy (knock wood) most of our lives, we have still seen a fair amount of doctors and their staff. This is by far the friendliest and most competent office we have ever been in. You are greeted with a smile by a wonderful staff, not a vacant stare or rude comment anywhere. Each person we interacted with knew their job and answered our questions quickly. Dr. Huff is so impressive, looks you in the eye and doesn’t make you feel like he is in a hurry to see his next patient. He is very knowledgeable and friendly. Jeff has been putting off knee replacement surgery for a lot of years and when we left Dr. Huff’s office he told me that after meeting with Dr. Huff, he felt good about having the surgery and wasn’t nearly as nervous as he was before going in.

Dr Huff did a total knee replacement for me in January 2018. He and all of his staff both at the hospital and during follow up visits were extremely efficient, polite, and accommodating to any concern I expressed. His physician assistant called me long distance upon finding a concern in my initial CAT scan that was a serious concern requiring abdominal surgery and a delay for the knee surgery. He was most concerned until my surgery was completed and quickly rescheduled knee surgery. I traveled
