Ratings for Dr. Rhiannon Hughes
She took over from another pediatrician shortly after delivery, and provided the same information, but with an entirely different view of what the severity of problems were. As she was explaining, I offered her an opportunity to explain why she was stating problems the other doctor had already ruled out as unlikely, and she didn’t even hear me. She continued on her explanation including a basic biology lesson and spouting her lengthy credentials instead of listening and responding to the conversation. In the end, a neonatologist and NICU nurse immediately ruled out the issues she was bringing up that the initial pediatrician had explained were unlikely. It seems she has a wealth of knowledge, but may be too focused on the minutiae, rather than the big picture.
Dr.Hughs is an amazing Dr. We had to take one our children to see her and she gave us very informed advice for both of our children. We were never rushed our appt. lasted about 45 min. We seen her several times and have never had her suggest any forms of medication she tends to do the opposite and try for natural remedies.
Dr Hughes was of no help to me. I went to her after years of looking for answers and a diagnosis to my many problems and everytime I opened my mouth to tell her what is wrong she just said "it's the anxiety Hun" I had never suffered from anxiety before walking into her office. Though she seems a nice enough person, she is not a good doctor. Tried to push antidepressants on me as well as other medications that I had no idea were for. She didn't explain anything well and seems to rely heavy on prescribing medication. Her staff was wonderful though and the dr was actually on time and I didn't feel rushed at all.
Dr.Hughes is a credit to her profession. She was an enormous help to our family. She is incredibly insightful and intelligent. She sees everything and makes excellent recommendations. If your child needs help Dr.Hughes is a smart choice. I would highly recommend her, I cannot say enough about her as a doctor and as a human being. I will also say that she has a wonderful and patient staff I was completely impressed with their professional manner and kindness.
