      Dr. Hughes was able to diagnose my condition within minutes of meeting him after over a week of being turned away by other doctors. He immediately took action to get me on the road to recovery! My visits with him were pleasant and he was great about taking the time to answer questions and concerns. I'm so thankful for Dr. Hughes! Highly recommended! The worst part is scheduling appointments with Dr. Hughes.
