I wish after my surgery that he had come out and talked with my family after my surgery before going in and doing a second surgery and then coming out and talk to my family, my family was worried.

This was a first visit and it was pleasant

Dr. Hughes took time to thoroughly explain to me what is going on with my shoulder, what I can expect as time goes on, and various treatment options. I much appreciate his help.

May 08, 2018

I found the doctor to be very thorough, explained things clearly, explained my options and gave reasons for those options. I found the staff to all be very professional and courteous.

Outstanding. I am a physician as well and I thought Dr. Hughes was excellent.

DrHughes is a very good surgeon & person. He never raises his voice or gets angry with anyone. I have worked with him as a RN & have been a patient. I have never heard a bad word about him. What a blessing he is.

April 26, 2018

Performed a minor procedure with great competence.

April 26, 2018

I was referred to Dr. Thomas Hughes by Dr. Brian Hamlin. We knew nothing about Dr. Hughes but trusted Dr. Hamlin's referral. I could not have been more pleased. Dr. Hughes thoroughly explained the procedure for my reverse shoulder replacement and the morning of the surgery he again reviewed his procedure. At my first follow-up appt. Dr. Hughes thoroughly explained my X-rays and what I could and could not do in the next step of my recovery. I am pleased with the progress I am making and would highly recommend Dr. Hughes to anyone in need of shoulder replacement. I will soon need to have this surgery on my R shoulder and there is no doubt in my mind that I will have Dr. Hughes perform the surgery.

April 24, 2018

Dr. Hughes was extremely nice and actually knew what he was talking about. Most Drs. these days dont.

April 23, 2018

Dr Hughes is an excellent dr and his team as well. The office staff are very dependable, they are able to answer all my questions.
