Dr. Hughes always seems to help me have a better understanding of what might be happen to my body. She is never dismissive of any issues I bring to her attention and she always goes way above and beyond the minimumin order to help find solutions to those issues. In addition, she has such a warm and caring disposition.

Charges for phone conversation

I called looking for an internist as I had read on another site that she charged an office visit fee to speak with you on the phone...YES, she does charge if you need to talk to her about a prescription, adjust a medication or if you are sick and are out of town and need a prescription...That, in my opinion is totally out of line & tells me she is in it for the $$$. Never in my life have I had a doctor do that...and I am a senior citizen. Needless to say, I found another internist Disclaimer: Just clicked 1 on all experience questions as didn't see the doctor...just spoke with the office staff but couldn't submit this without an overall rating.
