Dr. Hughes is truly a local. He moved to Norfolk at the age of 5 & graduated from Old Dominion University, Eastern Virginia Medical School with honors and completed his residency there.

He started WomanCare Centers in 1987 and was the only doctor for six years. He chose OB/GYN because he wanted to have patients he cared for through all stages of their lives. He is enjoying bringing in his second generation of babies into this world as he is delivering the grandbabies of his original patients! Robotic surgery is something he loves, for the technical side and for the quick recovery time for his patients. He’s also been a local medical examiner for the city of Norfolk since 2007.

Other medical achievements are Assistant Clinical Professor at EVMS, President of the Medical Staff in 1998, President of Physician Hospital Organization in 1993, Director of the Bon Secours DePaul Midwifery Center, EVMS Community Faculty Teacher of the Year, 1992, 1999, 2003, 2010 and a member of the Society of Smith Scholars.

When he isn’t working, you will find him fixing something. He loves doing stonework, building furniture and flying. He’s a member of the Aircraft Owner’s Pilot’s Association as well as the Experimental Aircraft Association. He is an Eagle Scout and was a Scout Master of Troop 1 for many years. He’s also anxiously waiting for his first granddaughter to be old enough to throw a ball.

Patient Reviews

Overall patient rating for Gilbert Theodore Hughes:

Annual Well Woman Exam

I have been a patient of Dr. Hughes for 40 years. He delivered my children and I look forward to seeing him for my annual visit... not many women say that about their gynecologist. He is kind, understanding, and will address any issues I might have during my visits. He is an excellent doctor and friend.

Annual Well Woman Exam

I adore Dr. Hughes! He delivered my last child 13 years ago. My father had passed away only two weeks before, and Dr. Hughes handled me with such compassion. He also performed my hysterectomy several years after. He has become family and I trust him for bringing me through so many life stages.

Birth Control Consultation

Dr. Hughes is the best. He’s so funny and easy to talk to. Usually I get anxious at obgyn appointments, no matter what doctor, but I knew I could see his dog afterwards, so it got rid of all my anxiety. Also, the girl who weighed me and took my information was such a nice and understanding person and she also left such a positive impact on me that day.

Gynecological Problem Visit

Dr. Hughes is the most amazing doctor I've met there, he always goes above and beyond with making sure I understand everything and truly makes me feel listened to. I've had previous pregnancy losses before my daughter who was born in 2021 and even with my current pregnancy he never makes me seem weird or extreme about my prenatal concerns, even when they may seem silly to others.

Gynecological Exams

Annual Well Woman Exam

Dr. Hughes has been my gynecologist for many years. He is an excellent physician in every aspect of the professional ideal. I am very fortunate to be a long-time patient. Melissa also has a gift for treating patients with professionalism and kindness, bringing a human element of comfort to a clinically uncomuncomfortable situation

Treatment / Procedure

The doctor is kind and they treat me quickly.

Annual Well Woman Exam

I’ve been a patient for about 8 years and always have a great experience!

Lab Work

The front desk workers were very friendly, I had to get blood work that was not scheduled but that process was super easy and fast.

Pre-Operative Evaluation

Dr Hughes is friendly and personable. He treats me with respect and keeps me informed. I rarely have to wait to see him.

Gynecological Exams

Everything went smoothly, wait time was reasonable, Dr. Hughes was his normal self - easy-going and comfortable. The new space is a little odd with the curtained areas and sliding door cubicles for the intake conversations that provide little more than something to hide behind as everyone can still hear all the conversations. The chair rails that are intended to protect the walls from the backs of chairs are higher than the small chairs that are bumping below them, so things will be looking shabby before long. For now, finding the practice was a bit challenging because of the continued construction, but in the near future, it's likely to get crazy with three OB/Gyn groups right there together. Yikes! Staff was friendly and helpful though, so that makes a difference!

He takes the time to listen and educate during the visit. He is a true representative and example of a generation of physicians that this up and coming generation could not hold a candle to.
