Dr. McHugh was a joy to meet with because of his unique personal experience with Prostate issues. He also is genuinely concerned and is generous with his time and very helpful communication. My first appointment was to get a second opinion and I couldn’t be happier with his personalized approach.

Dr. McHugh and his staff are wonderful. They take a tough situation and make you feel at ease. Going through the process of having the prostate biopsy and how everything is handled, they do a great job. Very professional group of people that care about their patients.

I had a vasectomy preformed by Dr. McHugh in 2011. My experience was very pleasant all things considered. When I met my wife in 2015 we decide to have a child together. So in January of 2017 I met with Dr. McHugh again and we scheduled my reversal. It was a success and my wife became pregnant in April. Unfortunately she miscarried in July. We tried again later in 2017 with no success. We prayed about our situation and felt that if god wanted us to have a child it would happen on his time frame not our’s. Well after a year of waiting trying and praying we were introduced to a reproduction specialist. We had multiple test ran and the conclusion was that I had scar tissue occlude my vas tube. Well we knew then that Dr. McHugh was the man we would trust to fix my issue. So we scheduled my second reversal procedure in March of 2019. My wife and I are happy to announce that we are now expecting in March of 2020. This wouldn’t be possible without Dr. McHugh and his amazing staff! Thank y’all!

Very personable, informative and experienced. I enjoyed the conversation, and I rarely waited longer than 5 minutes in the lobby or in the exam room.

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
