Specialties

Dr. Valerie K Hudson has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

One Star

Please don't you or your loved one's time . My first visit, and I didn't get a chance to see her, yet I waited three and a half hours in her waiting room! I finally poked my head out of the inner waiting room and everyone was nowhere to be seen! The lady waiting for help at the desk told me its a four hour wait every time you visit her office. THEY DO NOT APPRECIATE ANYONE ELSE'S TIME!!!! I left. Thank goodness I didn't fall into that trap hole.

Two Stars

The Staff is mean, rude, cantankerous, very un-friendly, they know the Patients but it doesn't matter, the contact is still just plain NASTY!!!!. This behavior from the juvenile staff makes Dr. Hudson look real bad. She is the best, she is concerned, and she cares, she lost Bernadette the best PA she's had, but, the rest of her office Staff (the ones who has been there a while), they Suck!!! I've been thinking about finding me a new Doctor. Hudson is a Great Dr. But, the aggravation from the long wait, long time before an appointment 1-2 months away,(may as well go through Urgent Care, or, the ER,) treated as though people have nowhere else to be, except sit in the office of unfriendly people all day, I say NO!!!, its my funds from my Insurance that keeps you with a job. Revamp some things soon, or, in Oct.-Nov. I'm gone!!! Sorry Dr. Hudson. To find doctor's who still really care for people is hard to find, who follow up like Bernadette use to do, is hard to find, but the long wait in the waiting room, the patient room, or, just to get a darn appointment, is Ludacris, go back to what you use to do, before the move from down the street, all changes are not good ones, go back to visiting your patients when they are admitted to hospitals as though you care, your Patients want to see your face, it shows you still care for them.

FED UP

I have been a long-term patient -- my entire family has Dr.Hudson as the general practitioner. I will be changing doctors. My husband had been hospitalized and upon his follow up appointment, we were told he would have to pay for an office visiit. Per my insurance company; most doctors waive this fee for the initial follow up. I have had it and will be changing doctors as soon as possible.

HORRIBLE WAIT TIMES (3-4 HOURS)

she is always in and out of room on phone or tablet, staff is rude, and doctor is always late to office. i waited over 3 1/2 hours the last two visits and walked out. the office even had the nerve to charge my insurance when i had never seen the doctor and refused to refund my co-pay. its like your at a free clinic. i pay money for health insurance and want to be treated as such. It takes 2 or more months to get an appointment. if you need a "emergency visit" its like playing the lotto. you have to call on cerrtain days of the week between certain times and if you can get thru on the phone due to it being busy all morning, you have to hope and pray that the list for emergency visits hasn't been filled. I've seen this doctor 4 -5 times, i even tried early am appointments, being the first to be seen thinking that wait time would be better without success. in process of finding another doctor ASAP

Great Doctor

Dr. Hudson is a great doctor the only problem I have with her is the amount of time it takes to actually get an appointment and to be seen but other than that she really does care for her patients.
