Two Stars

He doesn't seem very invested, and seems to focus a lot on weight (I'm a perfectly average-sized person). I've never had a bad visit with him, but I've never been particularly happy with him either. I've had a couple of serious issues I have ended up taking care of myself by seeing specialists not referred by him. I have been seeing him for four years, but have been meaning to find a different doctor this entire time.

Five Stars

I have been a patient of DR. Hugs for about 15 years. I have been very pleased with his medical expertise. He has integrity and cares about his patients. I'm just hoping that he is in practice for many more years

Worst Initial Visit Ever

I am a very physically fit, muscular female who at the same time wears a size 0 or 2. I am 5'8". Dr. Hug's assistant weighed me and he concluded that I was "too fat." When I suggested that he consider the density of muscle mass vs. fat, he dismissed me entirely and said to "stop lifting weights because it's unnecessary and makes you gain weight." Just completely ignorant of body composition, etc. Barely heard a word I said, and was driven to his own sweeping conclusions rather than paying attention to individual facts. NEVER AGAIN.

A doctor who creates harm for his patients

I have never met a more arrogant, condescending and ignorant doctor in my life. My husband was diagnosed with lung cancer by hug and we never heard from him after. Not one phone call not one follow-up of test . Nothing. He took a vow to do no harm... He broke that vow totally and completely. Shocked that a doctor would behave so coldly

So sad

At 76 years old he is the first person to put his hand up to tell me shush. So little respect.
