About Me

Interactive and personal care in which the patient has a large role in the decision making procerss and the treatment chosen. A physcian should have a ready wit: A dour outlook is repulsive to the well and the sick alike.

What People Say About Dr. John McHugh, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr. McHugh was slightly late on seeing me however he had to explain to a patient just before me that he had bladder cancer. He wanted to take the extra time with that family to explain and answer any questions that they had with Dr. McHugh. He told me that he was extremely sorry for the extended wait time. I didn’t mind at all. I was glad that he took the extra time with that patient and his family to discuss their dx and the next course of Tx. I was referred to him by my best friends brother, Dwayne McCrary. I have the utmost respect to not only Dr. McHugh but for his assistants as well. He has the best bedside manners of any other doctor that I’ve been to. He is compassionate and an exceptional listener. I was seeing a different doctor 2° to kidney stones but I didn’t feel comfortable with that doctor. I was then recommended by my best friend to call Dr. McHugh’s office at the Northeast Georgia Urological Associates. Dr. McHugh has been practicing urology for 30+ years. D.McCrary A+

Dr. McHugh was very patient and explained all details of the procedure. My husband had no pain whatsoever during the procedure and was back at work in three days. Dr. McHugh ensured that we got the best anesthesia for my husband and he was able to get us in the same week as our consultation!

I have been a patient of Dr. John McHugh for several years. He has performed greenlight surgery on me as well as removing kidney stones. This morning I had Lithotripsy to bust a large stone in my right kidney. As usual, I was impressed with the surgical team at his surgical center and the care and compassion Dr. McHugh shows to me as a patient. He is a very professional and caring person and would recommend him to anyone. Curtis F

Dr. McHugh has helped me so very much during my recent Dx of cancer of the bladder. His knowledge and understanding of what we need to do, giving choices on how to treat the cancer. His smile and wit is most helpful! He is easy to talk too, takes time an explains procedures and answers questions. I am so glad he is my Doctor! Office staff are very friendly ! Glen and all the surgical team are so very nice and professional. I give Dr. McHugh and all his staff 5 Stars.
