"Family medicine specialist Bruce Hughes, MD, at The Art of Medicine Direct, PLLC, brings quality medical care in a unique way to Charlotte, North Carolina. Believing that health care has been compromised by the current environment, Dr. Hughes opened a new practice and switched to direct primary care, which allows men and women to access their doctors for set fees rather than dealing with confusing insurance plans and billing issues.
He founded The Art of Medicine Direct, PLLC, in 2016, drawing from his experience as a board-certified family physician since 1991 at his former office, University Family Physicians, also located in Charlotte. Representing a wide range of interests, Dr. Hughes has an undergraduate degree in Germanic language and literature, a medical degree from the University of Virginia School of Medicine, and is a self-taught artist whose works have been exhibited in an art gallery in Charleston, South Carolina. Currently, you can see his paintings beautifying the office of the Art of Medicine Direct, PLLC."
"At The Art of Medicine Direct, PLLC in Charlotte, North Carolina, Bruce Hughes, MD and Jeffrey Cardwell, MD use their extensive experiences as family practice physicians to make health care decisions in collaboration with the men, women and children who visit their office. They believe that insurance companies and healthcare conglomerates, preoccupied with their own agendas, have interfered with the doctor-patient relationship. Practicing in the Charlotte area for nearly 30 years, they have witnessed the many changes in healthcare and payment systems. Some of these changes have been good, but many have not."
