"I was very apprehensive about having my knee replaced, but Dr. Hudgens and his staff did an excellent job of guiding me through the process. He comes across as warm and caring, and does an excellent job of explaining things. He seems dedicated (to a fault) and for my part, his work is excellent."

"In this day and age it is rare indeed to come across a physician with likes of Dr. Hudgens . He makes you feel appreciated as a patient and takes great care in listening to you and then explaining the condition you have and to explain then treatments available. Once you have been treated by Dr. Hudgens you will realize that you do have letters in your name not just numbers. I am so thankful that I discovered Dr. Hudgens !"
