Today I arrived a few minutes early with my son for his visit that I was able to schedule early this morning. He woke up with a fever so this was not a planned visit. I was seen immediately. The staffis always kind and courteous and the waiting room is spacious and comfortable. Dr. Hughes is an extremely knowledgeable and caring pediatrician. I am so glad we have her! All of my 5 kids have been seen by her since birth and my oldest is now 13 :)

I just moved to the area and I was like I booked her through zocdoc by who took my daughters insurance and her staff was very on top of everything, in a good way! I previously booked with another office butthe appt fell through from them not saving my information properly .. I then found this office and I was glad Dr. Hughes staff confirmed my appt so quickly. It seems that the appt times are up to date to their system unlike other offices where we have to later find out it isn't. When I got there they took down our information and soon after was called to the back. We saw the nurse practitioners since she was out, which by theRe was a notification of that on the door , that's a hint of good communication.. and she was very nice as well. They were thorough to check my daughter and quick but not in a rushing way. She was cranky from no nap and they were patient. In us waddling behind from room to room. I like there are toys like buildables in each room to preoccupy their little patients , I haven't seen that yet and it's a great idea!

I was seen by a new nurse practitioner Brandi. She was very informative and gentle with my newborn. Today was her first day at the location and without the being informed by the ladies at the front desk, I would havenever known by her kindness. It was truly a pleasure and I was sure to request her for my son's follow up visit

We had been trying to find a good pediatrician for our infant son but couldn't find a doctor who told us anything more than a parenting magazine would, or an office that wasn't dirty and loud (we have govt asst healthcareso our options weren't exactly premier). I had googled the top pediatricians in our network and she was number one and zocdoc made the appointment for me and sent me an appt reminder. The office was spacious and clean and no loud dirty kids running around, we were seen so quickly that I didn't even get a chance to fill out the forst page of the forms they gave me. Then they put us back in the room after getting his weight and again I tried to fill out the form but she came in the room almost immediately. Our other doctors had us waiting for an hour in each room. When she came in she didn't seem rushed and she didn't try to hurry us along. She sat down and got comfortable and just talked with us and asked us if we had any questions or wanted to talk about anything so we just discussed my sons progress. Our other doctors had always been in a hurry and never gave us any information past what we could already find on the Internet. She's extremely pleasant and calm and reassuring. And even with govt assistance medical care we didn't have a copay. I'm super glad we found her when we did.

The Nurse we saw was amazing, very sweet, however we arrived at 9:30 am and didn't leave until 12:00 pm. I know they were very busy most likely due to back to school time. I would reccommed them and will seethem again. I do wish that they would have checked with the records sent from our previous pedi and saved my daughter the pain of a finger prick blood drawl. As we were at the lab very recently for the same test. Doctors appointments are already a stressful time for kiddos when they anticipate shots and having to have a blood drawl, 4 shots, and a flouride treatment at once is a lot. Everyone was very polite and curious.

The staff were friendly and helpful. Unfortunately Dr Hughes was on vacation so all of my research to find a great pediatrician was pointless. The fill in doctor was knowledgeable and helped my son feel comfortable so I couldn't be too upset.

The doctor was just ok. She really didn't try to get to know my daughters or make them feel more comfortable. They are young and have had the same doctor since birth until we recently moved. A stranger takes a littlegetting used to. The office staff seemed a bit disorganized. We booked through ZocDoc the first time with no issues. The second time they said we needed to call to confirm and that they did not have our appointment. MY fiance waited for over an hour for them to "squeeze" them in to be seen. It's not a horrible place to go but maybe we were just spoiled at our last pediatrician.

Dr. Hughes was great. She's professional and welcoming. However, her staff can use some client service training. In addition, my appointment made through ZocDoc was not recorded in the office system, and I had to argue my way to be seen,stating that I had ZocDoc written confirmation. I gave feedback to employee that gap should be fixed to avoid scheduling conflicts.

I have to say that the reviews for Dr. Hughes are pretty accurate. Some reviews for other doctors in the area seem to talk about how fun the office is for the kids and each experience will differ, but professional isprobably thee best word to use. The office is quiet, the staff is friendly, The doctor is very personable and laid back. She's not so stiff like a lot of doctors and she has a REAL conversation with you. Many people may be unaware of the "8 minute" rule many doctors tend to follow in order to see a certain number of patients in a day. It's said that they must stick to a strict deadline of 8 minutes per patient. So, this is why many get that rushed feeling when you may see the doctor from time to time, but we never got that feeling with her. She seemed to hear and address every concern SUBSTANTIVELY and not just "uh huh, hmm, okay." -- So, we will definitely be going back and while she not necessarily in the baby's face swinging lolly pops around, she is strictly professional and she gets an A+ Side Note: It asks me to rate how long we waited. 30 minutes was listed as a 4 star and Right away was a 5 star. I think the wait time was 5 star worthy but we didn't get seen right away. It was more like a 10 minute wait which is awesome for a doctor's office.
