in Slidell, LA |
I have been a patient of Doctor Dugan for the last five years or so. She is the best I have ever seen, and I have seen a lot. Doctor Dugan is extremely knowledgeable about my conditions. She takes her time to explain everything concerning my health. I will never go to another gastro doctor.
in Covington, LA |
After being in the care of a local gastroenterologist, who would not consider that I had something else wrong with me.Dr Dugan ran some tests and in three days was able to tell me what was wrong with me and take care of my problem. My illness was shutting down my entire body and all its functions. I am thankful to her for looking elsewhere and finding out what was wrong with me. Since 2012 she has been my doctor.She is very explanatory on what functions and treatments needed. Very personable. ??
in Springfield, LA |
I was very impressed. Dr. Dugan has a great personality, listens to what you have to say, and takes the time to explain things in depth.
in Theodosia, Missouri |
She listens carefully. She is easy to talk to, is straight forward, and is good at explaining EVERYTHING.
in Slidell, La |
Please do not waste your time and money. This practice is a joke. Dr. Dugan is no help and her office... don't get me started. I sent a request myself on May 5th requesting for my records to be sent elsewhere. Show up for my appointment with my new doctor on June 2nd and they still have not received the information requested. When I called and asked the receptionist conveniently remembers sending this information last week (May 27th- June 4th).... almost a month after the request... don't lie.
