Dr. Charles Hughes, M.D., announced this week that he is closing his practice with the Levelland and Sundown Family Medicine clinics effective Friday, May 16th.
He has practiced medicine here for the past 23 years and says it has been a blessing. ‘I’ve met a lot of wonderful people. I got to care for a lot of people. My biggest regret is that there were people I could not care for better. I raised my kids here and spent most of my married life here. Kathy got to watch our kids grow up here and got to go shopping in the mall. It’s been wonderful.’
He admitted to having regrets about leaving the local clinics but plans to remain active in medicine, probably in emergency rooms in the area.
‘I like ER,’ he said ‘It is an opportunity to care for the whole spectrum of human life.’
