Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Duggirala "Dr.Duggirala believes in healing the person not the disease. He spends time to get to know his patients and delivers personalized care. He understands that each person has different needs and expectations. Dr. Duggirala's only concern and responsibility is to his patients. By not contracting with insurance companies he is not burdened by their rules and red tape. He believes that only a doctor and patient should be making medical decisions, not insurance companies. He has same day appointments as well as does house calls if his patients are unable to come in to the office. He also uses the most up to date medical technology, including Electronic Health records, electronic prescribing, and a web based patient portal (for electronic communication with the office). He offers the best of a old fashioned family doctor with the best of modern technology."

There is no better PCP than Dr. Duggirala! His expertise, care, concern, and patience are unmatched. He is always available and approachable. He was given only 4 and a half stars and should have a hundred!
