What People Say About Dr. Michelle Hughes, MD
Reply
Dr. Hughes listens well, reads what she needs to to understand that patient’s issues, and thinks in terms of the health of the whole person, not just “that one body part” or “the other”. She also asks perceptive questions. Keep asking what you’d like to know, and she’ll advise you well. (As with all doctors these days, being proactive and attentive yourself is best; doctors’ time constraints from paperwork sometimes limit how much they can initiate when the patient’s health is stable & sound.)
