He is a great doctor. I've been a challenging case and he has accepted the challenge and conquered it.
Dr is great but takes too long to get an appointment
...I trust Dr. Ian Humphreys 100%. He is a knowledgeable medical provider and shows he really cares for his patients.
I have been seeing Dr Humpherys for several years I always find him caring educating me of choices to aid in my decision making on treatments.
Dr Humphreys is. EXCELLENT
I never felt rushed or talked down to. Both the doctor and the PA seemed knowledgeable and interested in my understanding what was discussed an the eventual treatment suggestion.
I felt very included in decisions about my care, with one VERY large decision about my surgery being made entirely by me. I feel listened to and valued, esp when I asked about post-procedure care.
Always professional & thorough
Dr. Humphries seems to be top-flight and did an exceptional job explaining things to me.
Again, highest quality care- so thorough, compassionate, personable, and of course extremely knowledgeable.
Dr. Humphries is top of the chart!! I received great information, not just about the specifics of my sinus situation but in how that related OR DIDN'T relate to other problems I was having in that area. He also helped me reach out to resources who could help with things he could not address. I see him as a real leader and a model doctor. [...]
Dr. Humphreys is the perfect provider. He clearly explained my sinus problems in an understandable language. After 50 years of sinus pain & multiple infections, I totally expected to leave without hope for help. I am grateful for Dr. Humphreys and his staff for their professionalism, but mostly for their kindness.

Dr. Humphreys was very knowable regarding my problem [...]
Dr. Ian Humphries was great. So was the resident that saw me. They definitely made me feel like they were invested in my care.
The UWMC Sinus clinic is one of my favorite places to visit, as odd as that may sound. Remote response via MyChart is a great resource. Dr. Humphreys clearly instills a humble and compassionate ethic in those who support him. I'm a very satisfied client and evangelize about UWMC whenever I can.
