    Dr. Hughes is the most empathetic doctor I have ever had. Wonderful bedside manner. Talking clearly and slowly, his aim is to make sure the patient understands the message(s) he is delivering. Making superb eye contact, he patiently answers all questions. He's authentic and treats you as if you are his only patient. Naturally, he's highly competent in all aspects of Pulmonology--that goes without saying. If you're wondering, I am not related to him nor a friend. He's been my doctor for 30 years.

    Since my former Pulmonologist was retiring soon I needed a new one pronto. Dr. Hughes was recommended by hospital staff and we were happy w/him from the get go. He was casual, interesting, and made me comfortable right away. He even grew up in the same area I did and attended Lakeview as well. In addition, he was very understanding of my condition (bronchitis) and was a great listener. He took time w/me to find out as much as possible. I never felt rushed or like "a number." Great guy!

    I wouldn't recommend any of my family members to this Doctor or to any of the offices within this practice. The staff is awful and always rude. One of the most unprofessional doctors offices I have ever stepped foot in. Not to mention that Dr. Hughes wished death on a poor 85 year old woman. I've witnessed the staff screaming at patients. You can tell that they don't care.

    Easy to talk to. He will make sure that you know what is going on and explain all of your options. Takes the time to listen to your concerns and answer any questions. We couldn't have asked for a better referral from our family doctor. Dr Hughes is AWESOME!
