He was very professional, personable and friendly. I did not have to wait at all. He took his time and I felt as though he was very thorough. Truly it was one of the best experiences at a doctor’s office that I have had.

Took over an hour to be seen by the doctor. Less than professional setting and overall office appearance. Received the appropriate prescription and diagnosis, but reconsidering if I will return.

He was very nice and helpful. I felt that he spent adequate time with me. But, my appointment was the second of the morning (7:45am), and I still had to wait an hour to be seen by the doctor. I was disappointed, and the wait time really frustrated me.

Was not overly impressed. Office was dirty, out dated and not run well. Doctor was not overly friendly. The purpose of the visit was to look at warts. He said he didn’t do that and referred me to another doctor....now I have to wait for another appointment

The doctor is pleasant knowledgeable and professional. I had a good visit. However the follow up was a computer program which did not work and absolutely no call or follow up from the doctor regarding tests which sucked since I was sick

I was not impressed at all and most likely will not be back. He did everything I would have done...looked the stuff up online. As a medical professional, I came in knowing what I needed. I saw him the usual 15-20minsnew pt slot and all he did was print the CDC recommendations and had it to me..o and listened to my heart and lungs to make sure I had an exam. Not only did he not give me the prescription I originally came in for, I had to call back the next to try to get him to write it. Eventually, he wrote and hit me with a large bill and I have insurance. NOT IMPRESSED.

The waiting time is EXTREMELY long... if you have enough time sitting in the room with the front desk for more than half an hour and another 20 mins for the doctor to come in, go ahead book it!

I was very displeased with my visit from the moment I walked in the door until I left 2 hours later. Yes, 2 hours just for a simple office visit for a prescription refill. When I arrived, the front desk staffwas not welcoming or friendly. They asked me to fill out all the paperwork which I had already filled out online. I told her this, and she said she didn't have it and would go check for it. She never came back and told me whether she found it. Once I got called to the exam room, it was probably 30 minutes before I was seen by the doctor. As I said, I was only going for a prescription refill, but they said it is their standard protocol to do blood work at their initial appointments. I recently had blood work done elsewhere and asked whether they could retrieve those results. They went to check on it, and about 45 minutes later, Dr. Dugas walked by my exam room and said, "Oh I didn't know you were still here." Terribly unprofessional, and a complete waste of time, but he did agree to fill my prescription if I gave him a call when I needed it next. I called the office when I needed my prescription refilled, and was told they don't do prescription requests over the phone even though that is what Dr. Dugas had advised me to do. So they put me through to Dr. Dugas, he said he would call it in, and I still had to follow up the next day because it had not been called in yet. Again, unprofessional, and I would not recommend anyone to go here.

There was no wait, Dr. Dugas was extremely personable, had a sense of humor and professionally addressed my concerns. I needed my bloodwork done and the gentlemen who did that is gifted - I didn't even know he had put theneedle in and was 1/2 way done before I looked to see if he was going to start! They were proactive about getting me scheduled in for follow-up and I feel very confident that I am in good hands.

The absolute worst medical doctor I have been to. Went in needing just a basic antibiotic shot in the arm and then I find myself with an IV in my arm surrounded by a pool of blood. Passed out for abit, they weren't concerned. It honestly felt like a medical students first time at finding s vein - I now am going to have a huge scar in my right arm looking like a junkie because this doctor doesn't 1) carry basic and common medications at his office and 2) can't insert an IV. I am surprised he is in business. The absolute worst - I nearly walked straight to the ER after that visit since i couldn't feel my arm and was so lightheaded. All I needed was a shot in my arm. Walgreens minute clinic would have been a better option.
