"My incredibly short interaction with this doctor was nothing but curt, dismissive, and rude. My elderly father, who has recurrent pneumonia, came in on the recommendation of his general practitioner to respond to worrying Covid-19 symptoms. Dr. McHugh berated him for putting hospital staff at risk (despite both parties wearing surgical masks and keeping distance) and sent him home without taking adequate time to address concerns. I would not trust my loved one in this doctor’s care."

"I was seen by Dr. McHugh through emergency in Green regarding a bruise on my shin that resulted from a trip and fall 2-1/2 months prior. I left the emergency room that day humiliated and sat in my car upset because of the rude and insulting behavior Dr. McHugh exhibited toward me. I then called my family to make sure they knew if something happens to me because of this issue with my shin that this man is culpable. When the trip and fall accident first occurred in September I was treated in the Green emergency room for my head injury and mentioned my painful shin bruise, but my head was the immediate concern so I was treated for my head injury. 2-1/2 months later and the shin bruise had not improved, perhaps had spread out around the shin and is hard and raised. When I am on my feet too long or if I workout, the area throbs, burns and swells. It's now over 3 months later and this continues to occur. When I went in for my shin in December, the emergency room was empty - in fact, I was ...
in and out of emergency for treatment in approximately 25 minutes. The nurse checked out my shin and told me to put on the gown because pictures may need to be taken. Dr. McHugh came into the room and as he entered he said, "Why did you come here for this?" I explained I had been in before and was afraid I was ignoring something that I shouldn't be and that might be a bigger problem because I have a very high pain tolerance and it is hurting as bad, if not more, than several months prior. I told him it burns, throbs and sometimes seems to move around. He appeared extremely put out to even look at my leg, and he barely did except to feel the bone (which really hurt in one spot) and tell me it was not broken and "what did I expect" him to do. I said I wanted to make sure it wasn't something else and I could just continue to ignore without worrying it was dangerous. He asked me why I didn't go to my regular doctor, and I explained that my doctor doesn't have equipment to take pictures and I wasn't sure if they're only doing videoconference which wouldn't help to really see and feel the hard raised bruise. He mimicked picking up his leg and told me I could hold my leg up to the screen like this. I asked if I should continue to workout and he said the benefits of workout outweigh staying off my feet over this. He said it was just a bruise and if I needed anything in the future to call my regular doctor, then abruptly left the room without another word. This happened in about a two minute timeframe, and he was very rude, abrupt and even accusatory as if I was doing something wrong seeking help and treatment. He seemed to have entered the room without ever seeing my leg having already pre-determined that I shouldn't be there. I was insulted and humiliated. I never complain about pain and my family has been worried because this hurts me so much, so they pushed me for weeks to get it checked out. I also have an HSA healthcare plan so I know I'm paying out of pocket and I just wouldn't go in for no reason; however, trying to ignore and hoping it would go away and quit hurting for 2-1/2 months did not work and I worry it's getting worse. After two emergency room visits for head and bruising injuries within a couple months, I even expected a doctor might ask me about whether I feel safe at home. Luckily I am safe because if any woman goes in there who is bruised and a victim of abuse and sees Dr. McHugh then they will only leave feeling more abused and uncared for. Nobody should be subject to such dismissive treatment, in particular emergency room patients who are paying a lot of money to have peace of mind that they do not have a serious injury. I would have been thrilled with this diagnosis and happy to continue to ignore despite the pain if I felt like this doctor had listened and thoroughly examined my leg. And he has definitely shamed me into dropping this and not making a big deal out of the injury. The salt in the wound (literally) will be getting a "
