I visited Dr Huston for a 6 week check up following a Total Knee Replacement. The total experience was so professional and gave me such a feeling of confidence in my care. The clerk at the front desk was kind and efficient. I was treated with kindness and respect by the person who took me back to my room. The Xray technician made me feel at ease. Drew the PA answered all my questions and gave me some tips on care of my incision scar. I appreciated that. Dr. Huston gave me excellent feedback on my healing process and took time to show me how I can continue to increase the range of motion in my new knee. I cannot stress enough how much I appreciate that there is a scribe there to document the office visit. This allows the doctor to direct his full attention to me and not be typing on the computer to document the visit. It greatly increases my confidence in my care to have a doctor that is able to look you in the eye and not looking at the computer for most of the visit.

I was here for knee surgery and everyone was extremely helpful. I would go back.
June 23, 2022
This was a very competent office. Personnel seem to know what they were doing and when I asked questions they did have answers. I appreciate all their care and concern during this visit. I was recommended by a friend of mine to Dr. Huston because he does excellent work. I would have to agree so far.
