I'm blown away by Dr Hughes and her MA, could not be happier. Iv already recommended her to ppl, but iv stopped because I don't want anymore people taking up appointment slots since you have to schedule them so far in advance lol
My experience at my appointment was excellent.
Always a pleasure to see Suzanne. She really cares about my health.
Personable, smart, attentive, respectful
I am so grateful that I found Dr. Hughes!! Her care and knowledge are fantastic. She is helping me to get health! Feels life changing!!
Would recommend to people with Covid shots. Would recommend to people who don't mind very high energy personalities. I will not be returning since she refuses to see people with no Covid shots.
The provider made me feel like I was her only patient. She gave me her full attention, answered all my health questions clearly, and gave me a referral for a repeat ultrasound test with a view to removing one medication, if the test result Indicated the condition has resolved. She consulted with a specialist that I had seen previously about this medical condition to review the treatment plan to make sure it was appropriate. I appreciate her thoughtful approach by consulting with other medical specialists, when necessary.
She is very wonderful asking all questions answer everything she's very friendly
Provider was very nice. I didn't feel she listens carefully or explains herself well.
When my family doctor retired I didn't know what would happen now. But Dr S. HUGHES IS a wonderful doctor and I couldn't imagine seeing anyone but her, I fully trust and respect her.
Internet site If very bad and hard to use. Needs a completer redo.
Was nice to finally meet Dr. Hughes after waiting so long to get an office appointment.
Dr. Hughes is a very caring doctor who listens to my concerns and communicates clearly what steps will be taken to keep me healthy. I'm very comfortable and trusting with Dr. Hughes.
Dr. Hughes was enthusiastic to meet me, to get to know me, to visit about my health history, my current health. She demonstrates extraordinary knowledge about the issues that relate to my health. She has a great sense of humor, excellent listening skills, and treated me with the utmost respect.
Dr. Hughes was great! I came for a new PCP appointment not knowing what she was going to be like but I am very happy she is my new PCP. Just a solid dr. and person!
Dr. Hughes is an asset to Legacy - highly recommend!
Provider has strong opinions about best approach. I am not of the same opinion
Dr. Hughes and staff were excellent. They were personable and professional. This was my first visit and we covered many issues with plans for follow up. I look forward to working with them.
I appreciate the thoroughness, the positive, kind and patient personalities, the joyous feeling amongst staff. Most importantly the amount of care Marie and Dr. Hughes had for me. Absolute professionalism in the highest degree!
I appreciate Dr. Hughes; professional, no-nonsense style - laced with good listening and humor. She and Marie, her nurse, provide excellent care and I would recommend them to all.
Staff was very understanding of mobility issues
I am lucky to have found Dr. Hughes - she is a treasure.

Good - dr. is pleasant, lively, professional, SMART, very likeable.
Dr. Hughes was very attentive, listened to me, discussed things in detail, spent a good amount of time with me, seemed to truly care about me as a person.
I was seeking a new primary doctor so I was a new patient. Was impressed by how informed Dr Hughes was about my medical history at my first appointment with her.
Great rapport with patient
I felt listened to, and heard.
Great communication and understanding of what I need to do in regards to my health.
I haven't had any bad experiences related to my visit.
This provider is a real asset to this practice. I felt heard and seen.
I loved Dr. Hughes energy and passion for her job. Very thorough.
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.
The provider was friendly and I immediately felt at ease. My questions were answered and all the procedures were explained clearly. I am so glad I am in this provider's care.
I had to wait way too long for an appointment. Way, way too long
Dr. Hughes listened to concerns and provided possible solutions.
Suzanne is direct, efficient and a doctor that can dialogue with her patience.
Dr. Suzanne Hughes and her assistances exceeded all my expectations. Dr. Hughes answered all my questions, and health concerns with extraordinary understanding, and focused direction. I feel blessed to have Dr. Hughes in my life.
Just felt this visit was a little rushed, but Dr. Hughes did answer my questions that I brought.
Dr. Hughes Is an excellent physician.
It is always a pleasure to see Dr Hughes and Maria. I never leave the office without all my questions answered.
All good, very professional and to the point....
So far she is the best doctor I have ever had.
She didn't give me the diagnosis. Heard her say it on the phone and it was startling
Foul language, unprofessional unflexible.
Dr Hughes is caring, competent and I am happy she is my primary physician.
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.
My experience has been awsum I am very greatful and am so pleased with Dr Hughes and my medical team.
Dr. Hughes was friendly & easy to talk to I was very comfortable with her.
Aside from the good exam. I really appreciated her comments and information.
This appointment was to establish care with a new doctor.
This was my first time meeting Dr. Hughes, and it was the most comfortable I've felt at a doctor appointment. She was so easy to talk to, stayed on topic and validated my concerns. I'm so happy I'm assigned to her!
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!
Dr. Hughes was amazing! Just love her!
This was the first time I seen this provider. The experience was better than I expected. I feel that the patient - provider relation will be very positive.
This was first ever visit as I am a new patient to this practice and provider due to my prior Dr leaving the practice I had been with for several years. Purpose of this Initial visit primarily evaluation of existing medications. Will look forward to continuing excellent rapport and medical advice in future, more substantive visits.
Dr Hughes was very friendly, professional ,courteous and attentive to my needs and concerns. She immediately took action to improve my health and well-being. I was very impressed by her, and thankful to be under her care.
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 and her MA Marie were beyond amazing! This was my new patient appointment and I am so thankful to have found this provider! I work for another Healthcare organization and was blown away by the care I received by this provider and MA!
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).
Could not be happier with Dr. Hughes. So grateful to have found her. My doctor of many years retired and it had been hard to find someone I felt comfortable with in regards to caring about my health.
Really hard to say because Dr. Hughes had my daughter take me to Emergency where I was admitted and remained for 5 or 6 days.
Dr. Hughes is not only a professional but a delightful individual. She is a blessing to the industry!
Dr Hughes is a kind, thoughtful, fantastic doctor who makes you feel seen and heard, and shows great care for her patients.

First time visit to establish care. Prior long-time provider retiring. Dr. Hughes very friendly, took time to get to know me, ordered tests that she thought I needed, answered my questions, felt that she listened to me. Very positive experience.
Great fruitful discussion and confident I will be okay until next visit
Dr Hughes was great! She took time with me and really listened. Really like her!!
This was my first meeting with this doctor. From now on she will be my primary care physician
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.
Dr. Suzanne Hughes is the very best doctor I've ever had. America needs more like her. 5 stars. 5 stars.

Very helpful and knowledgeable
Very nice doctor
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.
Dr. Hughes was amazing! My first visit with her and I am so excited that she is my new PCP
The doctor was excellent. This was my first visit with her after transferring primary care. I was very pleased. The only problem I had was with staff not communicating well re transfer of my records to this office.
I felt comfortable with the Dr right away. When I was leaving, I wanted to give her a hug!
This was my first appointment with doctor Hughes she was extremely well prepared had researched my records. She also was easy to talk with high energy and acted as if concerned with my health. I look forward to working with her.
