Dr. Dugas was polite, intelligent, and perceptive. His aide (whose name I didn't catch) was friendly and efficient. I waited a little longer than I hoped to, but I'm otherwise happy with how the appointment went.

This was my first appointment with Dr. Dugas - I had a cough and was feeling sick in general. He saw me the same day and the visit was great - everyone in the office was nice and I was happy that I decided to go. Dr. Dugas was super thorough and I’m definitely going back again if I need to in the future. 10/10 would recommend!!

The office is pretty run down and there’s a decent amount of wait time. The doctor is also very expensive even with insurance. For that price you’d expect a much higher quality experience.

I had my appointment with Dr. Dugas a year ago, but I still remember how uncomfortable I felt when I told him I had stopped drinking a month prior and he laughed and said, "Must have been a bad night!" It was a bad night. And his comment was totally inappropriate.

The office was less than professional/clean and the wait was over an hour from the time my appointment was scheduled. However, Dr. Dugas is extremely personable, patient and listens to your needs. I appreciated his recommendations and care to detail during the visit. Make sure you have ample time for your appointment here.

Terrible visit. The wait times are insane! Expect to wait over an hour, maybe 2. All of the office and it's equipment is from 40 years ago - very very very old. The temperature was extremely uncomfortable. The doctor, once he decided to finally show up, seemed acceptable.

It's clear that this is a small office, where there isn't a huge staff and people often take on roles outside of the typical (i.e. Dr. Dugas also acted as a receptionist when I was there). I can see why there sometimes might be a longer wait than some Dr's offices, though I didn't experience this. I had a great experience - I was seen right away, and Dr. Dugas actually took the time to listen and get a thorough sense of what's going on. The last few PCPs I've tried out gave the impression of trying to rush through my appointment, whereas here I felt like everything was done with care.

The office is not very up to date and my “general consultation” took almost 1.5 hours! I was the only patient in the office so be sure to plan in advance.

I just moved to Chicago and was looking for a new doctor to continue getting my prescriptions that I’ve been on for over 2 years. I told the doctor everything I was there for at the beginning of the appointment, after 2 hours he cut my prescriptions in half. There was no negotiating to get the rest of my prescription once he received my medical records. I was extremely frustrated that he wasted 2 hours of my time. Has he told me in the beginning I would’ve just left and found a different doctor.

Was my first time there; will never go again. Waited for a long time to get in. Waited for a long time to get blood pressure, and then to get weight, etc. Doctor came in, would do one check, and then go away and I would wait. By the time he was supposed to see his next appointment, we still have not gotten to the main reason why I was in to see him because I had just sat around waiting for him for so long.

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.
