Dr. Huges never makes the visit feel rushed. He makes suggestions on my health and understands that we will not always agree. He contacted my GI doctor to see when my next appointment should be and had the nurse call me with that information. He takes a personal interest in my health. It's not just something he does by rote for every patient. He is very caring. I appreciate him more than he knows. I tell my friends how great he is. He doesn't push me to do things I don't feel necessary.

The front desk staff at this office is so unfriendly and slow. I know they had a new computer system to learn but they were that way before. I have been to a lot of dr. offices and this is by far the worst I've ever seen as far as getting checked in. The nurses and drs. are great. Thank you.

Reviewed on February 1, 2019 6:00 PM

I was there for a routine physical. No one in the office could tell me the price for the physical. I am self-pay, so I am concerned about how much it costs. The physical went well, and I am very happy with Dr. Hughes. However, I may not be able to continue to go to Dr. Hughes based on the outlandish cost for a simple physical.

Reviewed on February 1, 2019 6:00 PM

I was very impressed with his recommendations - I had a MRI on my back & wanted advice to know what to do & he suggested physical therapy which I have done now - & he also seemed genuinely helpful. I appreciate his advice.

My appointment was at 2:15pm and I did not see the doctor until 3:15pm. Unfortunately this is becoming the norm. I understand the need to schedule more appointments through out the day to be as cost efficient as possible but if you have to wait an hour to see the doctor, It's not worth it.
