Patient Comments (4)
Spencer, MA |
bedside manner is horrific. Did not seem interested at all in my concerns or my questions, very agitated and inpatient. It was a total waste of my time. his attitude toward me was as if I was putting him out being there and I really think that this doctor has seen his days and should leave the practice
in Hardwick, MA 01037 |
Extremely concerned about rushed aspect of consultation, plus condescending attitude. Very little exploration of nature of my condition. Did not handle information provided well and had an abrupt manner which was disconcerting in the extreme. No specific recommendations for elaborate needs laid out in multiple test results including MRI and CT scan. Would not recommend him for anyone seeking a compassionate, listening presence.

I would highly recommend Dr. Hughes. He is professional, spent time with me, explained my situation with me in depth and I will return to see him in 6 weeks. Very positive experience.
