I have been seeing Dr. Hudgens for my orthopedic issues for nearly 10 years. He is an excellent doctor in every respect. He takes time to listen to you and shows genuine concern and compassion. He always uses the least invasive methods first, and he never pushes meds on you, especially pain meds. He did my total knee replacement in 2011 and everything went perfectly and recovery was half as long as expected. Everyone I have referred to him feels exactly as I do. They all love Dr. Hudgens!

Dr Hudgens is awesome. There is a wait time most of the time but it is worth it. He explains things so that I understand him. I do not like the office set up (check in) I am handicapped and visually impaired and it is hard for me to maneuver. The nurses are really nice!
