- 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.

Dr. Hughes is a very good Primary Care physician. He has been my doc for quite a while. He is a very busy guy. He runs the Bulfinch Medical Group, his patients are getting older (and sicker) so he has to spend more time with them in appointments, he is getting older, he has a Nurse Practitioner or Physician's Assistant to handle some simpler matters and has a Health Educator to help out even more. I have always found the staff to be responsive and courteous. Sometimes there is a longer wait than expected but I know it's only because Dr. Hughes is bust helping somebody else out. He's not just sitting in his office with his feet up having a Coke and a smoke. Dr. Hughes has always been thorough, personable, friendly, humorous and insightful. He asks me questions and he always answers my questions. I don't think he is able to accept new patients at this time and I am certainly glad that I have had him as my doc for all these years.
