Dr. Dugan performed surgery on my right hip. He explained what procedure he was going to perform snd explained what I should expect after surgery. I was very pleased with Dr. Dugan. He explained how the surgery went and what I can expect with regards to heeling, recovery time and reduced pain. I would recommend Dr. Dugan to anyone contemplating problems or surgery to lower joints or pain management.

Actually one star is way too many. Not honest, hurries thru appointments, he did surgery on my right hand, 4 days out no follow up calls absolutely nothing. Not even sure I have a follow up appointment. Very poor office people. Very uncaring, this is nothing but running cattle thru a chute.

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.

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.
