The personnel and procedure handled my MOHS procedure very well and professionally. It was just the second wait that prompts me to not give my experience a complete 5 stars. I was aware of the waiting time built into the MOHS procedure, but would have appreciated some update re why the second wait took so long. The first wait was a couple of hours, the second wait was over 4 and a half hours. All other patients and the receptionist had gone home for over an hour and a half before I finally knocked on the door of the procedure area to verify that my treatment would be continued shortly. I certainly understand backups, but would have appreciated a verbal verification that I was okay. Otherwise, everyone associated with the clinic are wonderful and I have no problem referring others. I am glad to have a physician with Dr. McHugh's expertise in my community! The waiting area is comfortable, restroom clean, and I especially appreciated the option of two different areas to wait. Signage also was appropriate for the COVID-19 situation.

I had previous Moh's surgery with Dr. McHugh, and I was extremely pleased with his skills as a surgeon and his easy, but professional manner. My wound healed so nicely that I decided to return when I need another Joh's procedure. I find the entire practice to be outstanding--everyone on the staff, including the doctor, are friendly, caring, professional and extremely capable!
