Needs to talk less about himself. Stop writing a patient off after reaching certain age.

10/31/2016

Trust him to do what is best for me

10/29/2016

Once again, Dr. Hughes is fine, but so rushed that he appears almost ADD. It is necessary to bring him back to previously discussed issues to get closure. I left failing to resolve an issue I raised and had been told could be taken care of - I had asked if it would be possible to get my allergy shots through Catawba Valley Internal Medicine, he said no problem and moved on. I forgot to bring him back to what I need to do as there were several other questions that needed final instructions.

10/20/2016

good doctor
