      I met Dr. Hughes when I was diagnosed with Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma. He saved my life and I am 15 years in remission. Thank you! He is very professional and caring and his staff is amazing. I highly recommend him.

      He saved my life in the 80's when I worked at the Saginaw Children's Zoo. Professional but friendly and always had a ready smile and cared not only for me, but for a llama and a donkey that needed homes for the winter months. Truly a hero in my book!
