I was super pleased with everything regarding my vasectomy. Dr. McHugh and his staff made the whole experience as painless as possible (both the actual procedure and the sensitive/personal nature of having something like this done). Highly recommended.

Dr. McHugh was referred to me by my PCP, and was able to work me into his schedule within several weeks. After arriving, his staff accepted me as his patient, and put all my questions and concerns to rest within five minutes, assuring me he was able to conduct a thorough prostate exam, confirmed my problem, and took all the time to explain his care plan. As a Retired US Military member, Dr. McHugh, gladly accepted my TriCare Insurance, along with Medicare Insurance and explained in great detail, why it is important for annual exams. Dr. McHugh scheduled additional diagnostic biopsy which confirmed prostate cancer surgery, explained ALL my options, and provided options Robotic Surgeons in both Atlanta and Gainesville. I will recommend Dr. McHugh to anyone who wants the personalised care plan from a true Professional, a member of the US Military who understands the needs and insurance issues. Patient for Life. Most Respectfully, MSgt (Ret) Stan Gorka

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+
