I just moved in the area and needed to get some things checked out. I randomly picked a doctor from UnitedHealthCare, Dr. Hughes is extremely engaging and wants to get to know you. She will address anything and help you through them. The staff is extremely friendly and I was seen within 15 minutes of my arrival

Dr Hughes is a Great Doctor. So Glad I found her. I change insurance made sure she was under new insurance before I took it. She is caring considerate she listen and spend time with you. I like she takes one step at a time ruling thing out giving you a chance to get through one thing at a time. Her bedside manner is excellent and she has the greatest staff to make things complete. My husband and I are both her patient. Dr Hughes has the right personally for my hard headed husband lol. Thanks
She told me if I wasn't better to come back, because she thought I needed a tens unit. I came back after finishing medication, paid copayment and she was going to contact someone to get the tens unit. She told me she would call me after she contacted an old rep. I sent reminder message in my patient portal message a week later and the next week left her voice message. She never followed up with me. I never got the tens unit that she told be I was a prime candidate to get one.
