    I have been going to Dr. Hughes for a number of years and last week he did my cataract surgery. I was very pleased with his bed side manners, his concern, his explanation of the procedure, his surgical team and his follow up. I have recommended him to friends and colleagues. I look forward to him doing the cataract surgery on my other eye.
