I tried to have a very brief conversation with Dr. Hughes about one of my medications and the effect of having stopped taking another medication on tryglycerides and cholesteral, but it was near impossible because Dr. Hughes was in the hallway leaving. I am seriously considering changing cardiologists because I feel that Dr. Hughes is not interested enough to answer my questions, nor to spend longer than ten minutes with me at an annual cardiology check-up. I feel I need better care than I can receive from him.
