Dr. Hughes was great! After finishing my initial paperwork which took about 5 minutes to complete, I was seen within a minute or two! I had gone to an ENT earlier in the week and that person just wasn’t a goodfit and didn’t answer my questions nor concerns so I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Hughes and he wasn’t incredible! He did a scan of my throat before I had even wanted to bring it up and he was very thorough. He answered all my questions and even addressed things I hadn’t even thought about yet! Overall, I will definitely be coming back here for all my ENT needs.

Although Dr Hughes was professional in his treatment, his recommendation to visit a hospital for an ER visit was looked down upon by the hospital staff and was seen as an over-reaction to my condition. Overall, this trip ended up notproviding value to treatment. I will be seeking an appointment with a different ENT.

I felt very comfortable with the whole staff, from the front desk, to the nurses, audiologist and techs. The doctor himself was very down to earth. He listened to my questions at the beginning of the appointment, and even asked ifI had any other questions at the end. The whole experience went above and beyond my expectations! I wouldn't hesitate to return or refer someone to NW ENT in Elk Grove, Illinois!
