Patient Ratings and Comments
About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

This was the first time it seemed he had not reviewed my chart, so probably a one-off, Dr McHugh is the kind of compassionate and through caregiver we want more of!

I really don't want to recommend to others because it gets harder to get an appointment because he is so popular and becomes too busy.

James McCugh appears to me to be the best. He was extremely focused and attentive. I had a keen sure sense that whatever is wrong with me he will definately find out what it is and take care of the probem so there isnt a problem or any sickness any longer ever again. Excellent doctor. I am very comfortable with him.

Dr James McHugh is the best, most knowledgeable, empathetic and compassionate provider one can ask for. I have recommended many of my family and friends to him. Hopefully he never retires. If does maybe he can open a clinic at home. I can't think or imagine going to anyone else. Love him lots but Go Cougs!
