I have been a patient of DR Regis McHugh for a number of years. Every time DR McHugh operated on me it was done with professional skill and very satisfying results. His manner was exceptionally cordial and comforting. I was very much at ease throughout the surgery. I also appreciated the nurses assisting him as well as all the staff involved in setting me up for my appointments. I consider myself a very fortunate patient to be attended by Dr. McHugh.

I have been a patient at Forefront Dermatology for many years. I had MOHs surgery years ago on my scalp. Dr. McHugh did the surgery. He also did MOHS surgery this week on my face. He is a wonderful surgeon. He is very caring, understanding and professional. I highly recommend him. All of the staff were very nice. They took very good care of me.

This was my second experience with the MOHS procedure, I am completely satisfied, everything is explained to you and you are put totally at ease. I would refer anyone who needs this done to go here! There is always a follow up call the next day to make sure all is okay

For my first MOHS Surgery, Dr. McHugh and his staff provide patient-centered care that included: 1) a letter outlining the procedure, preparation steps, bio and an FAQ; 2) phone call from a staff member prior to the surgery asking if I had any questions and a quick review of the preparation steps; 3) ensured that I was comfortable and pain free throughout the surgery; 4) provided post-op instructions verbally and in writing; and 5) called me at home the next day to see how I was feeling and ask if I had any questions. The patient experience was OUTSTANDING!
