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

He has been great through the whole procedure. I had a pretty serious follow-up procedure which had NOTHING to do with Dr. Huff. He took care of everything immediately!

I prefer him cause he has a sense of humor and is very straight forward. Also the fact that he tries to avoid surgeries if possible, which is a relief if therapy can fix the issue and get me back to work.
