"Professional staff. Dr. Hudgens has been my orthopedic surgeon for the last four years. I have recommended him to several friends and family. I am thoroughly pleased with his service. He’s professional and personable but most importantly competent. He never makes you feel rushed. This is a rare quality in healthcare nowadays. I truly feel that he cares about his patients."

"Dr. Hudgens is one of the most compassionate and thorough doctors I have ever known. When my longtime doctor retired, he recommended that I start using Dr. Hudgens and he has been great. He is very honest when giving you his opinion and advice and he takes into account your personal situation and what works for you. He did a total left knee replacement on me in 2011 and he will do my right knee this fall. I recommend Dr. Hudgens without reservation. He is wonderful!"
