Dr. Tuggle's bio

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Tuggle "I thought I would be a professional musician, but I changed my mind one month before college started. One of the three best decisions I have made. Training as an adult surgeon allowed me to have contact with children, and I fell in love with pediatric surgery (my second really good decision)."

20 years ago he saved my life when I was a few months old. I want to say thank you even though you didn't know what it was or where it came from. If it wasn't for you I wouldn't be alive and do all of the things I have done and still can do. I'm not sure if you're still in Austin but I want to say...more
