This doctor does not follow up. Information on paperwork/results was incorrect. This doctor will not return your telephone calls. Save the aggravation and go to another Pulmonologist. My PCP will be informed of poor response/experience.

My husband and I really like Dr Pugh but I have a potentially positive chest CT for almost 2 months. I need to have a bronchoscopy scheduled and have made 4 or 5 calls to the nurse line with no response. I hate changing doctors but will not be treated this way. Guess Duke doctors are too busy to follow up with their patients. Unfortunately, this is not the first doctor with Duke that has neglected to return calls.

After cancelling a NEW PATIENT appt. (the day of) due to pain medication inhibiting my ability to drive, I received a bill for $25.00 to pay Dr. Pugh as a result of the appointment. I called the billing office and explained that I have no control over my nervous system (due to cervical and lumbar stenosis) and no control over flare ups. I was told Dr. Pugh would be informed and they would call back. They never called back. I called back. Dr. Pugh wants his $25.00. Dr. Pugh has NO COMPASSION!
