He had a wonderful bedside manner but put me through surgery and told me after he didn't fix the problem and would need additional surgery. On top of that, Lexington Clinic billed me over a $200 "New Patient Fee" which they said every doctor's office does. (Total lie) Very Very Very unhappy with my experience and almost filed an official complaint.

Dr. Hughes is so knowledgeable, competent and has a wonderful bedside manner. He listens and explains any procedures or options. I have been going to him for the past 4 years for a vocal cord problem and he has been wonderful. I would recommend him to anyone who has a need for an ENT.
