Dr. Sheila A. Dugan, MD

Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation | Female | 53 years old

I see patients that have either pain complaints or performance problems - maybe an athlete who's having trouble performing in their sport or maybe somebody who's having trouble going from sitting to standing. My particular area of most interest is what's called pelvic floor, which is a sling of muscles that's sort of from front to back and from side to side, from one hip to the other. And through these muscles comes your sphincters for urinating, having bowel movements, intimacy. And I take care of pain with intimacy. I take care of urinary incontinence, fecal incontinence, patients that have had surgery in their abdomen who now have abdominal and pelvic pain. I get a lot of satisfaction out of really listening, Why did you come to see me today? And how can I really help the patient figure out what is the root of the problem? And then work with them. So I work with them. I give them suggestions. If they don't go home and do their exercises, the muscle function won't change. If they don't follow up and see a psychotherapist, then the anxiety doesn't go away - it's going to be hard to manage their pain. So really I get satisfied by watching the patient transform and get their health back.Read more

Dr. Dugan did a thorough evaluation and asked a lot of questions to determine the source of pain and treatment for the pain. I would highly recommend her.
She is very professional, thoughtful, and a good listener. I've seen her for several different problems, and she has found ways to help relieve my pain and he'll my back.for referrals for physical therapy were all outstanding. When I had questions I was easily able to reach her. She explains things thoroughly and does not dumb it down.
