About Michael Hughes, MD, MPH

My practice is focused on the evaluation and treatment of musculoskeletal injuries and pathologies. My goal is to educate and increase my patients’ knowledge and understanding of their injury or illness as this provides them with the tools to recover faster. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my wife and family, traveling, playing piano and flying radio-controlled planes.

Doctor Hughes has proven to be a very mild-mannered, and caring physician. Each time I've come into his office he has proven to be most considerate and kind. He listens well to my concerns ensuring he understands my discomfort before he administers aid. He has a very pleasing personality and I am very comfortable with his professionalism and care.
