Meet Dr. Hughes
When her sister was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1998, Dr. Hughes dedicated her medical career to the purposeful and intentional treatment of neurological disorders. Practicing for over 25 years in academic and health care system settings, Dr. Hughes founded her private practice, Premier Neurology in 2015. Premier Neurology’s comprehensive approach to treatment is based on the goal of increasing quality of life for every individual affected by a neurological disorder. Living well with neurological diseases requires the patient-centered approach that Dr. Hughes has developed over her years of practice, and continues to hone in her private practice at Premier Neurology. Education has been a cornerstone of her commitment to patient care. An experienced educator, she has taught extensively in multiple arenas including medical conferences, medical schools and community events. In the face of the complexity of the field of neurology, she has been actively involved in clinical research for over 20 years.
