I saw him for a follow up appt. (I didn’t like his young associate) for a vitreous hemorrhage, seemed competent but not overly personable. He said I should make another appointment in a week. So I did, & after a 40 minute drive & sitting for 20 minutes after my appt time I was called to the desk (because the computers were having issues) to cancel the rest of his appointments. I guess my hemorrhage wasn’t that important!?!

I feel very fortunate to be in the care of Dr. Dugel for my Wet Macular Degeneration. I see him monthly for injections in each eye, I credit him for saving my eyesight. He is an expert in his field.

Dr. Dugal came highly recommended...was a hugh disappointment.. Poor bedside manner and poor follow up; Dr. Dugal is like a robot. Would not listen to history of eye problems or any questions; MD held his hands up and said, "You will get my results in two days"; yes, in 2 days a clerical staff phoned and read his results...though not all results. Poor customer service....though the office has all of the newest technology. I will not be back or recommend Dr. Dugal...despite all of the credentials

I see Dr Dugel through the VA as I am a disabled vet. some of the staff are nice and friendly. Dr Dugel leaves much to be desired in a doctor. first appointment he says he will answer all my questions. after answering my first question he move on to other matters and won't allow me to ask additional questions. first Tuesday of the month ihave vision problems in my one good eye. go to VA ER already had appointment scheduled with Dr Dugel for the next day, first Wed of month. It is now the third T
