What People Say About Dr. Richard McHugh, MD

Dr. McHugh performed vocal nodule removal surgery on my vocal cords and he did excellent. I was extremely nervous about this surgery, because I did not want my voice to change or anything to go wrong. I suffered from an extremely horse voice all the time. I was only 22 when I got the surgery, and I sounded like a 60 year old chain smoker. Dr. McHugh did a fantastic job and my voice is back to normal!

Dr. McHugh did a vocal cord implant for me in 2015. He and his staff were alway nice and considerate each time I was there. I have an appointment to see him again on the 18th and I have no hesitation about chosing him to see about the problem.
