I really like Dr. Huston, he obviously likes to teach and explains complicated concepts in a way that is easy to understand. I left with a framework for my care over the next 6 months. I know what I need to do and what I can expect at my next visit.

Dr. Huston is possibly the most knowledgeable rheumatologist I have ever seen in the past 20 years. He very concisely explained the cellular mechanism of my disease (PsA), and how the various meds affected the receptor cells. He is a very good teacher! I am delighted to have been guided to such a wonderful doctor after a cross-country move.
