To say that Dr. Huffman has changed my life would be an understatement... he has given me my life back! I was referred to his practice over 20 years ago when the Orthopedic surgeons, Peripheral Nerve surgeons, OT's, PT's, Psychiatrists, and meds had done all they could for the ulnar nerve damage I was suffering from. As a result of a work-related injury, I was at the end of my rope! When I met Dr. Huffman, I was impressed that he had actually taken time to read the volumes of medical records that he had been forwarded.
He listened intently to my needs, came up with a plan, and suggested that I consider a neurostim. trial. Within days of the surgery, I was begging him to leave the trial in because I could finally sleep! A week later, I had the real thing. People have asked what the neurostim. feels like, and to me it's like I'm carrying around a purring kitten on my arm. I was elated that the neurostim. had taken away 80% of the constant pain, but Dr. Huffman thought that I could actually get more relief. He suggested that I consider a pain pump as well, since I was still needing lots of meds for breakthrough pain. Needless to say, he was right again... and the rest is history!
Dr. Huffman's ability to help patients manage their pain is amazing, and I trust his thoughtful recommendations 100%. Don't get me wrong...even with a neurostim. and pain pump I still have some bad days, but my good days far outweigh them and I know that "behind every bad day is another good one... just waiting"! That's the "hope" that having Dr. Huffman in my corner affords me! He is a brilliant man who has uncanny gift of helping to unravel complicated problems, making them less debilitating. He surrounds himself with a very supportive staff and colleague, Dr. Ghazal, who is also incredible in managing pain. If you're at that point in your life where you're considering getting help from a pain management team, you would have an extremely difficult time finding anyone better than Dr. John Huffman.
