Patient Comments (8)

Waited for over an hour to see Dr. Hughes and described all spine and back issues in medical forms. Doctor came in the room without looking at the patient: "What's going on?" He spent 5 min on a patient, did not offer any explanations on the back issue, showed no care to help more. Walked away...more

I like the last review- " I have no words for how I was treated." That sums up my experience but I have words !!!! Patients come to you and expect to be treated like a decent human being. Spinal conditions and incredibly debilitating and can leave patients in extreme pain if not diagnosed and...more

Dr. Hughe's expertise and compassionate care gave me back a life worth living. I had spinal stenosis and scoliosis. After he repaired those conditions with fusions of C3-C6 and from L2 down, was able to resume work and my favorite pursuits. He earned five stars and my eternal gratitude.

I would not recommend him to anyone. Poor bedside manner and does not want to deal with you unless you opt for surgery. Very rude and dismissive! Saw him two different times and received two totally different answers! Keep searching if you want a good doctor!
