Dr. John D Hughes has the following 2 specialties

  • Pulmonary Disease

    A pulmonologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the lungs and respiratory tract.
    These specialists are similar to critical care specialists in that their patients often require mechanical ventilation to assist their breathing.
    Pulmonologists diagnose and treat patients with conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, COPD, and emphysema. Exposure and inhalation of certain toxic substances may also warrant the services of a pulmonologist.
    Some of the tools and tests pulmonologists use to diagnose a patient are a stethoscope in order to listen for abnormal breathing sounds, chest X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, bronchoscopy, and polysomnography.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

My friend was admitted to CCU at Plano Presby and Dr. Hughes lead the team of doctors. Having unusual circumstances, Dr. Hughes spent a great deal of time explaning each compounding problem, what would probably happen next & potential courses of action. He was accurate on all three. I am not a passive bystander & want to know what is happening. I also want to see the same doctor everyday. Daily, I asked to speak with him &, from what I saw, he always came asap. He is a compassionate, knowledgeable doctor who has excellent bedside manners.

Kind and Caring

Dr. Hughes was my daughters doctor during the last minutes of her life. He worked on her for 25 minutes trying to bring her back after she went into cardiac arrest. She was only 33. He did all he could do for her and was so kind afterwards,explaining to my husband and I all he could considering the state she was in. It was not his fault that she died and I would feel very comfortable using him as my doctor if I needed someone in his field. He has a wonderful bedside manner and explains everything well. I wish you well Dr. Hughes and thankyou for all you did to try to save our daughters life.

Best doctor

Dr. Hughes saved my wife's life in 2003 when she was suffering from COPD and on a ventalator at LifeCare. He is knowledgeable, compassionate and easy to talk to. He is currently treating my broncitis and he responds promptly to my calls about my condition as well as when I request a referral to a doctor in another speciality. I highly recommend him as a physician and a human being.
