Dr. Bugler was terrific! He knew I was nervous about my procedure and made me feel very comfortable. He told me everything he was doing and what I should expect. I would recommend him 100%

All he cares about is the almighty buck, went to him for many years. He was always wanting to do a procedure on me, he was very good until the DEA came down on him for writing so many prescriptions which was due to his own arrogance. He let me know that he was the only one who would be writing my prescriptions. He wrote me prescriptions for meloxicam for arthritis and several others.

Never even remembers me when he sees me. Spent all of 10 minutes with me on our first appointment. His nurse Karen is a know it all and doesn't listen to a thing you have to say. And I was recommended here by a friend.
