Review for Dr. Smith

Dr Hughes did a great job on my surgery and his staff is top notch, could not be more pleased with the results. Would certainly recommend him and would use him again!

Review for Dr. Hughes

Dr. Hughes has a very calming effect on what can be a mentally challenging situation. My "scar" area looks way better than most would expect and I believe as it heals it will look even better. Thank you!
