Dr. Douglas S Hughes has the following 1 specialty
- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Instead of complaining about the time spent waiting to see the doctor, people should spend the "time there waiting" thinking about WHY the doctor might be backed up! Could it be that the HUMAN BEING that the doctor treated two appointments BEFORE theirs came in with a full blown Asthma Attack, or in Cardiac Arrest or Seizing? Physicians TREAT PEOPLE that ARE SICK and Unpredictable. THEY TOO, wish that they could keep to their schedules and LEAVE ON TIME. BEWARE OF THE DOCTOR that insists on treating FOUR PATIENTS IN AN HOUR or one person every FIFTEEN Minutes! Running a practice this way is Financially SAVVY, but Dangerous! It might make patients happy MOST of the time, but how about the PERSON that is Rushed through like a Big Mac and discovers a few months later that their cancer was missed or their Misdiagnosed Migraine was a brain tumor because the DOCTOR was LOOKING AT HIS WATCH instead of his patient? Think about this really hard before you make your next appt. for a check up. Do you really want to be treated like your playing "beat the clock" when you enter an examining room- or do you want a doctor that takes the time to LOOK, LISTEN, HEAR and FEEL all of your medical issues. THIS takes time and Patience! A GOOD DOCTOR will CARE more about the PATIENT'S care then he does about Inconvenience. If you don't have a few hours a year for a good medical check up or to take care of an illness, then go to an Urgent Care and get a quick fix from someone that has NO IDEA who you are and they'll fix you up within an hour. This works fine for people that don't care about having a relationship with their doctor. However, most people that go to Dr. Hughes do so because they consider him to be NOT only a good doctor but a friend, confident and someone to depend upon in times of illness or tragedy. WHY WOULD ANYONE WANT TO TAKE THE CARING OUT OF THEIR HEALTHCARE?
