Dr. Dugan is very knowledgeable specialist about pelvic pain. She spent time with me listening, explaining and caring. If you have any questions about medications and treatment she will return your emails which not to often happen when you dealing with other doctors). She has contact with your physiotherapist about your progress even she has a busy schedule (she is also a professor at Rush University). She smiles all of the time and leaves you with a better mood. I would recommend Dr. Dugan w

This doctor is patronizing, condescending and rude. She gave up on me and told me that there was no hope for me. She refused to order treatment that was advised by other health care professionals. Do not waste your time going to her.

She was abrupt, dismissive of my pain, and completely missed my diagnosis, which I later learned from Mayo Clinic is nonrelaxing pelvic floor dysfunction causing rectal evacuation disorder. Instead of suggesting I see a GI specialist, she told me to go SWIMMING on a regular basis. I kid you not. She made me feel hopeless and helpless.
