"I am in the medical field and I couldn't believe how rude and unhelpful Dr. Huffnagle was. She absolutely refused to answer my questions. First, she said to wait until she'd finished the exam and, after the exam was finished, she said that she'd answer my questions after she got the lab and x-ray results. She spent no more than 15 minutes with me and kept implying by my reflex results that something was horribly wrong with me. When the lab and x-ray results came back, she refused to speak with me on the phone. Her nurse, Dustin (who was very sweet) said that Dr. Huffnagle doesn't speak to clients on the phone. I've never heard of something so bizarre. So she wouldn't answer my questions in the exam room and she wouldn't answer my questions afterward my lab and x-rays came back. What added insult to injury was her office visit was $488 and I had to pay $288 of that. I never got any resolution to my issue. I think it's horrible that the Dickson Medical Associates have their doctors refer to her. I was referred to her by Dr. Szczuka who's with the DMA. I would never ever recommend that someone go to her. It's impossible to tell if she's knowledgable because she's a horrible communicator. Please don't risk your well-being on this doctor. She has no compassion whatsoever."November 20, 2018

What is Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery?Oral and maxillofacial surgery is the specialty providing surgical care for the mouth and jaw. It is unusual in that it is a hybrid specialty combining the professional education of both dentists and medical doctors. The path to becoming an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, or simply ‘oral surgeon,’ begins with graduating from dental school. The dentist then attends a surgical residency in a hospital, learning general surgical techniques alongside other physicians. While many routine oral issues can be treated by a dentist, there are some that require specialized surgical care. Some of the procedures performed by oral and maxillofacial surgeons include:
- Removing wisdom teeth
- Dental implants
- Corrective surgery for facial deformities
- Repair of facial trauma
- Cleft lip or cleft palate surgery
- TMJ surgery
- Orthognathic surgery (jaw alignment)
- Sleep apnea surgery
What is Nephrology?Nephrology is the medical specialty that deals with diseases of the kidneys. Nephrologists deal with illnesses that are caused by lowered kidney function, such as certain types of hypertension. They also treat illnesses that harm the kidneys, such as acute kidney disease. Other specific diseases and disorders that are treated by a nephrologist include:
- Chronic kidney disease
- Polycystic kidney disease
- Acute renal failure
- Blood or protein in the urine (hematuria or proteinuria)
- Kidney stones
- Nephritis, or inflammation of the kidneys
What is a Biopsy?A biopsy is a procedure performed to remove a small sample of cells for testing. The cells are examined in a laboratory to check for disease, or sometimes to see how badly a known disease is affecting them. Biopsy can be performed on any part of the body. Although biopsy is most often associated with cancer, it can also be used to check for other diseases, such as infections. A biopsy sample can be scraped, cut, collected with a needle, taken with a machine that punches out a tiny piece, or removed with the tiny tools in an endoscope. In most cases, a biopsy is a simple outpatient procedure. Depending on your procedure, you may need to stop taking certain medications beforehand, such as blood thinners. Be certain to tell your doctor if you are pregnant, as certain biopsies require the use of x-rays to guide the needle to the right location. There is usually very little pain associated with a biopsy. You will have to wait a few days to hear the results.
