Dr Hughes is the BEST! He told me that if I was still in pain after a few days to call him personally. told me to tell the receptionist to make sure to get him on the phone for me!!!!! that's what I call a very understanding doctor!

I have "white coat syndrome" and *Dr. Hughes made a difficult situation for me tolerable. He was friendly, easy to talk to, explained all my options in detail and understood my anxiety.

There seems to be a 'time crunch' feeling in a general in the office - not specifically from *Dr Hughes, but there is definitely a rushed ambiance.

dr hughes is top notch the best of the best since the westmed merger, i feel my appointments are more rushed.. i do not NEED much time, however i feel like if i didn't think they were all always running behind and rushing thru (ALL THE DOCTORS), i would benefit from a little extra talking time (5 minutes) where some questions might come up, or where the doctor would feel like he has time to open a conversation and maybe bring to the surface a question that i had that was in the back of my mind. i realize that this is not in managements best interest, since it feels to patients that you are running a business instead of being in medicine. This is a complaint about the management of the practice, not about the doctors or staff.
