Patient Comments (8)

This office is very rude and unprofessional. The office manager was yelling and would not allow me to speak. I called to verify if she received a fax and she said they will need something in writing. I advised that it was faxed on 10/12/17.

Excellent surgeon, but office staff is the worst!!!! Billed Medicare incorrectly and will not REBILL or even call to fix. Instead, screamed at my mother and threatened to send her to a collection agency!! My mother never even raised her voice. Filing Medicare complaint!!!! UNACCEPTABLE!!!!...more

R. Pardon, Mer Rouge, LA Dr. McHugh has performed two spinal surgeries (upper and lower) on me over a ten year span. I found him to be an excellent surgeon, I most surely wound not hesitate to use him again, if needed. Paula compliments his practice immensely.
