Dr. McHugh treated me for a broken foot and I was extremely impressed with his professionalism and knowledge base. He was always available whenever I needed him and as was the staff. I had no issues at all with getting an appointment when I needed to and being seen quickly.

Dr McHugh is very nice, professional. HOwever, his staff is unavailable and some can be rude. They have yet to return 2 messages from 2 and 1 week ago. I am right out of post surgery; unacceptable behavior.
