Dr. Hughes was an excellent doctor. In time his front office and two new managers made it impossible to schedule or see the doctor and all they cared about was yelling and asking for patients to pay just to pick up medications. Dr. Hughes use to care about how his patients were treated, now over five at one pharmacy are in tears over how horrible they were treated. He has allowed staff who know nothing about insurance claims and staff who play with phones to treat his patients poorly.

The care I received from Dr Hughes and his staff is truly priceless. I showed up with an urgent care need before the office had even opened. Even though I had no appointment, I was cared for immediately. The staff treated me as if I was a family member instead of the inconvenience I know I was. It is hard to find this kind of compassionate, professional treatment in today's medical environment. Even though there are numerous family practices closer to my house, I would never go anywhere else!!

Good luck getting an appointment. Front desk staff are rude and don't listen. Mailbox is full so you can't leave a message. Nice doctor but he needs to hire a better office manager.

Dr. Hughes' bedside manner cannot be beat. He is kind and caring. He shows genuine concern for his patients; going above and beyond to make sure every detail is covered. After an emergency situation with my health, he promised to call later to check in....sure enough that night he called me from home to see how I was feeling and provide test results.
