If you think you are going to see Dr. McHugh for any chronic pain issues think again. I saw him on the initial visit and that was it. I understand that alot of clinics operate this way now. I was turned over to a NP named Deanne Threapleton. Ms Threapleton and the clinic are interested in one goal. That is to get the patient completely off any pain meds. This clinic is not interested in pain management at all. They might as well be considered a detox unit. Owned by Sen. Dr. Detox Dickerson

He cared less if he help me.
Most horrible experience I have ever had. He does not listen to what you have to say nor does he act like he cares. He definitely does not read your chart because if he did he would not have to ask the same questions overs and over again. When you tell him something works he backtracks and does something different.. He offers no long term solutions at all.

If you are looking for a physician and staff that will put the patient first, then this is NOT the place. When you have chronic pain, you need someone to attentively respond to your CARE.. This office blatantly tells you, 5 days after the fact, that they do not have to return or respond to your telephone call for 48 hrs. The staff tells you that you are NOT allowed to receive a call back from Dr. McHugh, as well as NO same day appts blocked for this busy office, and ZERO empathy from Doctor
