To put it simply Doc P is awesome. He didn’t have me wait very long and he worked quickly and efficiently. On top of that he was kind and chatted with me through the whole procedure. On top of that the staff was friendly and kind through the whole thing. The actual procedure for the vasectomy was quick and painless. Doctor Pugach actully informed me about the whole thing and even gave me some of the history of it when I asked. So if your unsure please talk to the good doctor!

I was in treatment with Dr. Pugach, outside my HMO, for three years and two months. The experience was entirely agreeable and positive. Dr. Pugach is very experienced and knowledgeable and explains treatment options and procedures in detail. My prostate biopsy was painless, and went quickly and smoothly (about ten minutes), and was not the negative experience I had expected. In regard to the Los Alamitos Clinic, the staff/nurses have been consistently amiable and professional.

After calling at least 7 other urologists from my insurance provider's directory, I reached Kim at Pacific Coast Urology. She was able to provide me all of the information I was looking for without the need for me to ask. She was extremely helpful and a pleasure to talk with. My procedure and recovery went exactly as I was told in my consultation. Dr. Pugach was professional, efficient and clearly a person experienced in his work. I really appreciate him and his staff.

Extremely rude, likes to hear himself talk, gets upset when you ask questions or questions him on a treatment. Doesn't care about his patients.

Great experience over the last 3 months with Dr. Pugach and his PA Evans as they are simply outstanding. Very understanding and compassionate while looking at the long term health of the patient. Highly recommend Dr. Pugach and his entire staff.

I had a "normal" Cystoscopy, with "no bacteria" in my urine. Yet I was prescribed 30 days of antibiotics. I had a Renal Ultrasound that was "irrelevant" because nothing was visible. This actually was because of massive mesenteric lymph nodes= Lymphoma. I'm lucky to be an RN and to have gotten a second opinion quickly.

tl;dr: Ok fellas, here's the nitty gritty on this place, that's what we're looking for right!? Pugach is excellent, get your vasectomy done here! Practically painless, 30 minutes in-n-out just like like Mike G.! Enough said. Now the details. To start, I got 3 consultations including Dr. Pugach. I figured if someone's going to be permanently altering my manhood I should perform a little due diligence to insure the Doc I go with is up to the task at hand! First impressions: I knew I would dread t
