Dr. Duggan is very personable and listens to the patient. I have torn rotator cuffs in both shoulders and periodically the pain spikes. I can almost always get in for a shot. The entire office is very pleasant.

Dr. Duggan ensures that he is very thorough. He chooses the actions that his patient will agree would be best. I felt like he really had my best interest in mind 100% of the time. I really appreciate his thoroughness. As long as you follow his directions and advice, you will be in good hands.

I trust Dr. Duggan totally. He has done my right shoulder rotatory tear and my right wrist carpal tunnel. Plus his nurse Tiffany is excellent. Love coming here. I would recommend to anyone.

My husband had a accident which resulted in a compound fracture and shattered ankle. Dr. Duggan was very attentive and supportive. Explained everything in detail multiple times and gave us his personal cell phone number in case there were any issues or concerns related to my husband’s care. I appreciated the way he took a personal interest in my husband injury and his caring bedside manner.
