Specialties

Dr. John I Hughes has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • 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.

Run!!! find another GI

He will schedule a colosnoscopy and upper GI study ($$$), after that you are on your own!!! He changes his diagnosis all the time. He does not read your emails so you will pretty much guessing what to do next. Or you will receive a letter, which I think his staff use for everybody, which will explain about a diet with stuff you already told him you are not eating. very polite guy but that's all. If you really want to find out what is wrong with you, run away from him. Do not give up, there always somebody willing to help you out there.

Past his prime

Dr. Hughes is a nice guy but definitely waaaaay past his prime. During his appointments, he says he's gonna do this or that, and then by the end, he forgets what he said. The thinks he told you something, but really it was only in his mind. He does not have the patience to spend enough time to analyze his patients previous tests and make a better diagnosis. He is waaaaaaaaay old school and time has passed him by. Better find another doctor if you have anything but routine problems.
