Initial visit to establish Dr Hughes as my new primary care provider. She was thorough, attentive to my needs and clear on medical recommendations. She's very straightforward on her medical suggestions, and explains "why" she provides specific advise on my healthcare. I'm glad I found her, and will not hesitate to make referrals.

This was a new patient meeting. Transferring from Legacy Salmon Creek. I thought the provider was very good except for one thing. The provider was adamant to get a Covid 19 booster. I said no. She kept at it! I let myself get talked I to it snd am not happy with myself. She also tried to talk my wife into it. All other providers just ask and let it go. I am not happy I got the shot! She is! Left a sour taste. I will see her again so she won't think it matters.

Dr. Hughes is refreshingly direct. She is also very personable. Those qualities, combined with her professional experience, I believe will make her an excellent primary care doctor for me. This was our initial meeting and it was very thorough in terms of covering my current issues as well as my history. I feel confident that I have someone reliable to go to for any situations that may arise going forward.

This was my initial meeting with Dr Hughes. No history, hence a lot of NOs regarding previous months involvement. Dr. Was highly engaged in my health history and future health. She is very professional and approachable. Thanks for the opportunity to validate my experience and voice my appreciation. She's a keeper!

Provider was generally good, but somewhat rigid in her attitude toward certain psychotropic medications. She was also incorrect about the availability of a certain lab test and wanted me to research it instead of her or her staff (it's their job!). However she was empathetic and had some good recommendations.

Our provider was AWESOME! I'm not usually a person for Dr's and have tried establishing with several over the last year or so and was having a hard time. Dr. Hughes is personable, relatable and made me feel extremely comfortable, with no judgement, or inconvenience. There need to be more providers like her!!! The front desk was not so helpful. They are the face and first point of constant within any clinic setting. They seemed very inconvenienced from start of conversation. Not only with my wife and I, but other people walking in and on the phone. The base of communication skills and personable skills were low. Had I not been with my wife, I would have left. They both were abrupt and slightly rude.

Dr. Hughes is the MOST perceptive and thorough doctor I have encountered. I consider myself very lucky to be one of her patients. Moreover, she has a great sense of humor and is straight forward - no sugar coating. She listens and is extremely perceptive (she hears between the lines).

I didn't know what to expect. I bought a bunch of material with me...my history, visitation summaries, etc...didnt need a bit of that,.DR Hughes had a very thorough understanding of my medical history, maladies, injuries, etc VERY well read, well informed! She was thorough....worked as we talked, not to the point of distraction or inattention but VERY efficient. But also very much as active listener...I always felt heard!!! I coulednt be more pleased to have her at my primary physician.

My first visit with this Dr. As I am new to your system. She is pleasant, professional and thorough. Enjoyed meeting her and her assistant. Receptionist was nice but very busy. CVS/Caremark is a pain called 3 #'s finally connected to someone that either; 1st day on job, English as a 3rd language or is one of your Special Needs' required hire. Still not sure if my ordered prescriptions are being filled. 4 days for labs??? Appointment3 weeks for PT??? Appointment Over a month for dermatology??? Appointment In my opinion, your group has major staffing issues that will, undoubtedly, send me back to Kaiser. Dr. Hughes is an extremely valuable asset for your group. Do your best to keep her.

She was able to trigger the vertigo, which surprised me. She obviously knew about the condition. My only concern was she was talked very fast, moved fast, ok for younger people but a little disconcerting to us older ones.

This was my first visit to This facility and to set up a new doctor in Oregon. The facility really needs a lab at that location in West Linn. You should not need to set up another apt to get lab work done and drive to another facility. The waiting area is drab and sterile. A little paint might help and maybe a plant. Great location near an affluent charming area.
