Dr. Huffer treats all issues related to the urinary system including the adrenal glands, kidneys, bladder and urethra. He appreciates the breadth of practice involved in treating urologic issues. “Urology,” according to Huffer, “is a great fusion between primary care and surgical subspecialties where I am able to treat chronic conditions while maintaining a continuity of care for my patients.”

Dr. Huffer believes in building relationships with his patients. “I really like spending time with my patients to develop a personal relationship with them. I care deeply about them and their treatment plan,” Dr. Huffer shared. He additionally promotes a whole food, plant based diet indicating it is the fundamental basis for health.

Dr. Huffer's practices at PeaceHealth Ketchikan provides a much-needed service to the community. “I believe in the continuity of regional care. I want to make sure people feel confident knowing I will be around to support them in managing their conditions.”
