Dr Hughes practices medicine. He isn’t looking at his computer. He actually takes a detailed history and asks pertinent questions until he understands the problem. If you’re looking for a new friend, keep looking. If you’re looking for a great clinician, then he’s your guy.

Review for Dr. Hughes

Dr. Kuo is extremely patient. He explained the HOLEP procedure in detail. The outcome was the best I could have imagined. My urinary function is back to normal (the bladder held 2400 ml post voiding before the HOLEP, requiring a catheter). I can't thank him enough.
