The Dr.William McHugh I had for over 30 years as my Neurologist was by far, the best Neurologist I ever had. Total trust. Took awhile to know him. He closed his individual practice Oct. 2016, works out of Renown Neuro which is clueless with patient care. I have never, ever, had so much trouble trying to find a competent neuro. I was not treated as a number, rather a person. Five Stars Plus My condition is epilepsy. I am rating him on the past.

Dr. McHugh is kind, experienced, compassionate, full of expertise, and made us feel very comfortable on our visit with him. We were extremely pleasantly surprised by his listening skills and kindness. He has a great sense of humor. We love Dr. McHugh. It was a very positive experience. We recommend him very highly with no reservations.

This man could possibly be the worst doctor I've ever had. He's elderly and seems to have no idea how to work the computer to order tests ect. No bedside manner. Literally told me to research and choose my own MS medication (isn't that his job?) And I STILL haven't been seen since my tests confirmed MS. Not once. Not even to go over the tests. The prescription keeps getting promised but never sent. Been waiting since late Jan, it's now nearly mid March. No one will schedule an appointment!

Same experience as another post by a patient on July 1st. Offered a very upsetting diagnosis of Lewy Body for my mom without even gathering any information and offering no justification for this diagnosis. Not to mention we weren't referred for a diagnosis, we were referred for an explanation on the benign meningioma found from an MRI. Terrible bedside manner and needed to make himself feel better by making a diagnosis

My family was very disappointed. The nurse taking her in saidoh your here for dementia. Very upsetting and insensitive. The Dr. Did not read his notes before hand which specifically asked that he talk to the family before my mother went in. He laughed it off when he saw the note at the end of th visit but we feel he did not conduct a proper evaluation because he did not have insight from family. He didn't question any of her answers and so has no idea of what really happens for us at home.

Experience and caring were evident from the beginning. He listens and cares. We left feeling confident and hopeful. A wonderful Doctor !!!
