Patient Comments (29)

Dr Hudgens took over when my regular orthopedic Dr Dr Daughtery retired. I am very pleased and happy with Dr Hudgens. His nurses Kay and the rest of his staff are superb in what they do. You will NOT be disappointed, Dr Hudgens has helped me tremendously.

Dr. Hudgens was very professional, even though I’m not very comfortable with any doctors, he was by far an excellent doctor to communicate with.

I was very apprehensive about having my knee replaced, but Dr. Hudgens and his staff did an excellent job of guiding me through the process. He comes across as warm and caring, and does an excellent job of explaining things. He seems dedicated (to a fault) and for my part, his work is excellent.

In this day and age it is rare indeed to come across a physician with likes of Dr. Hudgens . He makes you feel appreciated as a patient and takes great care in listening to you and then explaining the condition you have and to explain then treatments available. Once you have been treated by Dr....more
