"Dr. Hughes breaks the mold."

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.

" Everyone on his staff is very nice"

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 no serious problems but, when I’ve needed to get in , I’ve not had a problem. Would recommend him to anyone who ask.   Diana M.

Dr. Hughes was born, raised and educated in Nova Scotia, and has spent the last 30 years building his practice in Florida.  He is married with four children.  Dr. Hughes is President and Chairman of the Board for Florida Medical Clinic.  His free time is spent with family and his hobbies include running and pulling for his Florida Gators.  Dr. Hughes is involved in community service through the volunteer efforts of his wife Jane, who served as a Foundation Board Member, before serving as President of the Florida Medical Clinic Foundation of Caring through 2011. As a member of the Florida Bar, Dr. Hughes keeps his pulse on “all things legal” as they pertain to the clinic and its operations.
