Dr Huntoons arrogance interferes with his ability to provide reasonable and consistent medical "care". When asked if I should return to see him or go to the ER if experiencing increasing pain he responded," Why don't you use the meditation skills you say you have ? " He gave no response when I asked home to please explain his diagnosis, treatment plan : goals and expectations . Sub-par!

I was referred to Dr. Huntoon because I have significant chronic, daily pain related to my chronic inflammatory disease, surgical wounds that have never completely healed, and carcinoma. In my experience, you'll wait between 1-2 hours minimum for a procedure to begin and expect to spend around 2.5-3.5 hours total time from arrival at the front desk to actually leaving the building; additionally, Dr. Huntoon himself spends very little time with his patients (<5min) after the initial new patient intake appointment. You'll spend 99% of your time at all future appts with his staff, who thankfully, are truly wonderful, friendly, and caring people. In contrast, Dr. Huntoon is not compassionate at all, though he is polite. I would not recommend him to any person in need of a pain specialist for the following reasons: 1) Unwillingness to listen to or consider the concerns of patients, 2) does not actively involve patients in the treatment decisions/planning of their care, 3) after months of the same treatment (the very first procedure he had even tried with me), which took hours to do and only offered pain relief lasting from a few hours to about a day, Dr. Huntoon finally decided to stop giving me the procedure, but then scheduled me for a follow-up 2 months later, without any discussion. No suggestions whatsoever for any possible alternative methods, procedures, anything at all to address my daily, chronic pain while I wait 2 months for another appt. A doctor who is willing to let a patient suffer is one that doesn’t care about his patients. Save yourself the suffering and don’t waste your time, find another doctor who is actually willing to help you.
