Comments

The appt was made as a follow up check up, but had been sick the week before. so Dr Highes addressed that issue as well.When i called had so.e confusion on appt date and a refill on my meds. Ms X , the fro t desk receptionist was VERY helpful, answered all my questions, and got me to the people i needed to talk to. she was pleasant, friendly, and found the answers out if she wasnt sure of them. Great asset to your team!Dr hughes is very friendly, considerate of his patients, and very thorough. He has a very good "bedside" manner and listens to his patients with care. I was referred to him years ago and have recommended him to numerous family and friends. He is a top notch asset to your care team!!

Dr. Hughes as always was very cognizant of my medical history and current condition. He took the time to go over test results and review medications and we discussed possible changes. He has always took the time to discuss my health and make suggestions on ways to improve it.

Dr. Hughes and the nurses on his staff are the only bright spot I see at Advocate. Advocate appears to be a poorly run business organization that is run by non-medical people attempting to make medical decisions and policies. Their computer system is a joke, the nurses and doctors update my medications and the next time I have an appointment the updates were not there and we have to spend the time to go through all the medications again to update my records.

Dr. Huges never makes the visit feel rushed. He makes suggestions on my health and understands that we will not always agree.
