"If you want a doctor who is genuinely caring about his patients, then I Highly recommend Dr. Hudgens! Been one of his very pleased patients for over 10 years and plan on being his patient for many more (I am almost 72). He has the Best nurses, Kay & Leah and they all make me feel at ease and I am not easy to put up with for sure. Dr. Hudgens doesn't go the surgery route if there is an alternative, but I have not been disappointed in the surgeries he has had to do on me. I am so very grateful for this man and his nurses (and his staff of hard workers in this big group of great doctors. YES, I do recommend him highly."
