    Dr. Robert Hughes really cares about his patients and is dedicated to the profession. He works hard to provide quality care and takes time with me and other his patients. He is truly is genuine, compassionate, and cares. He makes you feel comfortable, and never rushed. He treats me as thought my time is as valuable as his time. Honorable and respectable physician to be , and appreciated.

    Dr. Hughes is extremely unprofessional. At our daughters last appointment, he was yawning and his cell phone was was ringing, which completely distracted him from our visit. We have found him to be rude and he rushes through appointments. We would NOT recommend him to any of our family or friends and have also switched to a new ENT.
