10/06/14 5 5 5 5 Absolutely fabulous Dr. I've never found I've had to wait long. He really listens and gives you information that you can understand. When was in crisis, even though it was his first day back from holidays and his office was really busy, he spent over 30 minutes with me and never made me feel he didn't have time. He doesn't believe in Naturalopaths, which I do disagree with him on that... but he doesn't have to be convienced from me. I would highly recommend him  Respond

18/02/11 2 1 2 5 I have no idea how people can think this guy is great. Maybe if you are living your life just like him he is great. because apparently thats the only way one should be living their life (he's got it alllll figured out). I have found huggett to be cocky and rude, I feel alienated when I go see him and don't think I will be back. he talks like a dictionary at you, and it just seems like he wants a pulpit or something, like hearing himself talk is a gift. pfft  Respond

13/09/10 4 4 5 5 Dr. Huggett is a fantastic doctor. He's caring, respectful, easy to talk to, and explains things in terms that you can understand (pictures and all!). He's not afraid to book the tests that you need done or refer you to other specialists to figure out the root cause. I would not hesitate to recommend him to any of my family or friends.  Respond

08/08/10 5 2 5 5 Ive had phillip as my GP as has my parents, grandparents, cousins you name it. He is a caring man, doesn't rush an assessment. When i was in crisis he came to my house to see me. He would visit my grandfather at home as he HD polio. I trust him completely, he is passionate about patient care. He is a good man. I have nothing but respect for him. Beast family doc i've come across.  Respond

28/01/10 1 2 1 2 Dr Huggett was our family doctor for 20 some years and every year he became more useless than the one before it,he seemed to care more about his golf game then his patients.All 4 of my family members have left him because he never shows up on time and never really listens to anyone but himself. The older ladies running the counter love to talk about other clients in front of whole waiting room.They are pushy and always look to be right all the time. Please avoid Dr Huggett as much as you can, acting like you care for your patients isnt the same as really caring for them and there medical problems. I have a great doctor now and thank god for leaving Dr Huggett. P.S stick to golf  Respond

22/08/08 3 4 5 5 He's like part of the family, knowledgable and kind; we have been with him for,it seems like 20 years. Our grown up children and grandchildren chose to keep him as their doctor.In what little time he has off, he assists with heart surgery. I wish he would take more time off, he's really getting stressed.  Respond
