Dr Hughes worst doctor ever. Because of his malpractice he gave the terrible pain that l suffered for 48 hours. And after that the pain in my hands were like before the injection. Only God knows what he put in my hands.

My husband saw Dr. Hughes for a second visit, and it was disappointing. He has excruciating nerve pain in his hand/wrist and can't sleep or function well for work or personal hobbies. The first series of steroid shots lasted a few months but have worn off. When my husband questioned his diagnosis (because he's being told different things by different doctors), there was no reply about that. He offered standard treatments (arm splint, prescriptions and PT) but would not revisit the diagnosis. While my husband used colorful language to describe his frustration, there was no need for Dr. Hughes to scold him for doing so given the amount of pain's he's in. It was unnecessary. I wish doctors would try to understand their patients more instead of viewing them as stereotypes. My husband left dejected today. He's a human being in pain seeking medical care. Dr. Hughes failed to empathize and acknowledge that fact. For those reasons, I don't recommend him.

I’ve had such a great experience with him,not only was he very understanding,he was courteous, has a great bedside manner and was very understanding of my medical problems. I would recommend him to all friends and family! to the previous reviews regarding FMLA papers, people don’t seem to understand that is not something a physician is required to fill out, it’s also dependent on if its necessary for them to be off work for. Leg pain and allergies is not FLMA material. Awesome doctor! Thank you

I picked Dr Hughes as a family Dr because my Dr, who I loved, moved. What a mistake it was picking him! Im a 20 year Ford employee that has bad allergies, hoshimotos disease, hypothyroidism and was recently diagnosed with high blood pressure. He refused to fill out any FMLA papers for me. I left his office in tears because I've used all my personal time for my illnesses. I actually asked him "whats it take for to get you to fill out FMLA papers? Cancer? " Horrible!

I pulled a muscle in my calf and started having muscle spasms and was limping. I was seen at Eastpointe Sports/Family Medicine he ordered an x-ray told me that it was a strain in my gastrocnemius muscle in my leg at the very worst a small tare that will all heal on its own. Offered an anti-inflammatory. Did not review any home remedies or what the plan would be if it got worse. I was worried about missing work and asked if he could fill out FMLA to protect my show for flare-ups. He refused.
