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.

She's very judgmental and forces things upon you and makes you feel badly if you disagree with her.

Jessica McHugh is wonderful.

Excellent MD very caring works with you

Absolutely love the care provided by Dr Jessica McHugh! She is very genuine, knowledgeable, and thorough.

Provider is great, office staff are difficult and unpleasant to communicate with.

I love Dr. McHugh! She's kind and caring and I've recommended her to friends looking for a doctor.

A lot of the time I feel like she dismisses how I feel, or concerns I have. She also doesn't seem open to anything other than what she believes is the right thing to do etc.

Dr. McHugh was really great. She was super friendly, informed and informative, and generally had a great bedside manner. I'm delighted to have her as my new primary care doc.

Very impressed with the care my son received from Dr. McHugh (this was the first time we had seen her). It was a last minute appointment due to illness and we were scheduled immediately. I emailed Dr. McHugh with a follow-up question after the appointment and she called me to discuss over the phone -- very helpful and attentive. But this is also consistent with the care my family has received from the clinic over the last four years. Very happy with this practice and our regular doctor, Dr. [...], too.

Her friendliness seemed very genuine. She was conversational, down-to-earth, and easy to understand in the way she explained my symptoms to me. I would definitely recommend her to others!

This was a typical appointment with Dr. McHugh. I have seen her many times, and in all of my experiences she has been very knowledgeable, professional, compassionate and caring. She is an excellent listener and communicator. I am very appreciative of the care I have received from her.

I've recommended Dr. Jessica McHugh to several close friends who were pregnant with their first babies. She's been the delivery doctor for a couple, and will deliver my second child within the month. I have full confidence in her, and am always treated with respect and warmth during my visits with her. I cannot speak highly enough of her and her professional expertise and demeanor.

Dr. McHugh was very responsive to my concerns. She provided me with the information I needed.

I've already recommended several people to Dr. Jessica McHugh and Dr. [...], and everyone has had the same positive experiences as I have.

Dr.McHugh always spends a great amount of time with me and shows supoort in sorting through my medical problems. She is very responsive and encouraging which I really apperciate

All I could ask for is being listened to even if there is no possible solution at the moment.

Dr. McHugh is so great! I've already recommended her to a coworker of mine who is looking for a PCP

Condescending about my concerns, non-communicative about prescriptions, ordered a test (it showed up on my paper work) and sent me on my way before it could be performed. Overall, unprofessional. I've had good interactions with her in the past, which only made this visit that much more disappointing.
