Dr Dugan was great! He has wonderful bedside manors. He and his staff make you feel like you're a friend. He also didn't jump right to wanting to do surgery, which was refreshing. Would definitely recommend him and his staff.

Dr. Dugan cared for my 93 year old mother after an ankle fracture. He was extremely kind and took ample time to discuss the benefits and cons of surgery. He successfully performed surgery. We were very thankful for him expert care.

Not only is Dr. Dugan rather cute he also has a great personality. Most importantly he fixed me. Also important he spends the time with you that you need and is thorough in explaining everything. I referred a friend to him and she couldn't get an appointment for three months. That's because he's so good.

Learned a lesson today check your own insurance even if hey tell you they accept it. I drove 3 hours to appt because my family would have t care for me and they live by the hospital surgery would be done at. Got to appt showed my cards and they tell me they don't except it. Told them I drove all this way and another lady got up looked at cards said same thing. Told her I told person who answered phone what I had was like oh well not even an apology!

First visit was delayed; but this was explained as he ran long in the operating room. I would be kept waiting for him to do the surgery right, then rush the surgery for an appointment.
