bio

Anne McHugh, MD is a pediatric rheumatologist at Dayton Children's Hospital. Dr. McHugh was born and raised in Englewood, Ohio. She completed her medical school education at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine in Cincinnati, Ohio. Following medical school, she spent her pediatric residency at Riley Children's in Indianapolis, Indiana. She completed her fellowship in pediatric rheumatology at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford in Palo Alto, California. Dr. McHugh is board certified in pediatrics. When asked why she chose to specialize in pediatric rheumatology she said it's because every day consists of taking care of children and new complex diseases that allow her to form long term relationships with families. One of her favorite things about working with children is their resiliency. Outside of the hospital Dr. McHugh enjoys cooking, biking and traveling.

This was our 2nd visit with Dr. McHugh and she's an excellent provider. It's always nice when the provider remembers you and little facts about their patients. She listens and talks directly to my son and treats him with respect. Appointments run on time. Dr. McHugh is quick to share notes and lab results after the visit.

Dr. McHugh is amazing! She was extremely thorough and put both my daughter and I at ease. She was informative, yet empathetic. I especially appreciated her follow up emails through my Kidschart account. A true blessing!

Dr. McHugh, has been a great rheumatologist for my daughter. She make sure that we understand everything that's going on and if make sure if we have any concerns and actually talks to my daughter about how she's feeling which is great.

The provider has been amazing. My daughter's been struggling with some pain in her legs and hips and they have really tried to help her and refer her to people that can figure out what's wrong with her. I wouldn't recommend anybody else except the people at Dayton Children's, they're all amazing.
