Chris Hughes, MD

Dr. Chris Hughes offers the full spectrum of family medicine, including obstetric care and delivery, primarily seeing patients at Riverwood’s Aitkin and McGregor clinic.

Personal philosophy/approach to medical care: I believe it is my role to help people along their lifetime to achieve better health whether it be by preventative medicine or treating acute or chronic illness.  I like to make things simple and easy for people to understand.  I enjoy educating patients and making shared decisions on treatment options or ways to achieve their goals.
