"Dr. Hudgens has been my doctor for 6 years and I think that he is the most patient and most mild manner doctor I've seen in a while. Most doctors are in and out, but not him. He is so professional but open. Thank you Dr. Hudgens."

"Dr. Hudgens has been treating me for a couple of years now. I've been ill since I was 32 and have had, literally, over 100 doctors treat me for one thing or the other. Because of many bad experiences, I really dislike doctors, as a whole, but, Dr. Hudgens is my favorite doctor out of them all. He is the most attentive, caring, soft spoken, informative doctor I've ever had. I love him and trust him wholeheartedly, and that's saying alot. Thanks to Dr. Hudgens for making me feel cared about, comfortable and heard, when I needed to ask questions or let him know what I wanted to do with my own body."
