I have known Dr. Hughes since before he started Florida Medical Clinic. He was my doctor back in the 1980's when his office was in the same parking lot of what is now Advent Health Hospital in Dade City. Dr Hughes was in practice with Dr. LaRue and Dr. Graves at that time. Dr. Hughes was my mother's doctor up until she passed. He was an outstanding doctor who cared about his patients and also worked with the patient's family. I will miss Dr. Hughes and wish him the best with his retirement.

"Thank you for everything."

Sooo happy to have Dr. H as my doctor. He listens-and loves my hugs- Thank you for everything.

"He is a good man"

Dr. Paul Hughes shows concern when he sees his patients. He is a good man and I hope God blesses him for many years to come!

"We are really partners in my daughter's healthcare!"

In this day and age of almost a "drive-through" visit with your doctor, Dr. Hughes breaks the mold. When I bring my daughter in, he listens to my concerns, answer my questions, and helps me understand whatever the issue is. I feel like we are really partners in my daughter's healthcare! Thank you, Dr. Hughes.

"Would recommend him to anyone who asks."

I've been going to Dr Hughes ever since we moved down here almost 6 yrs ago. Everyone on his staff is very nice. I've had no serious problems but, when I've needed to get in, I've not had a problem. Would recommend him to anyone who asks.
