This is an update to my last review , although I still hold Dr. Gugger in the highest regard I would like to point out the office staff has changed and now there is a $25 fee for filling out paperwork ! I feel this fee is uncalled for and that perspective visitors should be aware of this when making their decision whether or not to go here .

Dr. Gugger is an excellent Doctor. Very kind and compassionate. He took time to listen to all my complaints and formulate a treatment plan that has helped me live a much better life. I would recommend him without question.

I been seeing Dr. Gugger for years. He is very professional. I would recommend him to any of my friends and family. He really took his time getting to know me to figure out what the best treatment was for me. My pain was about 9/10 beforebut after starting to see him my pain has dropped down to a 2/10

Dr. Gugger was very personable and interested in my situation. I have had shots before and left in tears, not this time. It was over before I knew it and everyone was wonderful and very caring. would definitely recommend to family and friends. the wait time was long only because I was an emergency fit in between appointments.

He is truly one of the most compassionate, not only doctor, but man I have ever met. I went into my encounter with no hope and left a different person. A true ray of sunshine!

Dr Gugger is the most unprofessional doctor i have ever met. Never interviewed me before my procedure as I have always have done. Put blood pressure cuff on my severely broken humorous bone on my right arm. I have had at least 30 surguries and short procedures in my life and never has the burning been so intense where i tried to climb off the operating table/ I know it burns but not like this. I am traumatized. Stay away!
