I first got interested in medicine because I was a patient as a child. There were doctors who were very helpful and kind, and that promoted my interest in medicine. I often tell patients that we are all patients at one point in our lives.
I think seeing the patient as a whole is my biggest forte – not just seeing the patient as having a hand problem or a reconstructive problem, but looking at the patient as a person and seeing how the problem they’re having is affecting their life.
If you think about it, there’s nothing more human than hands. The way that we interact with our environment is really with hands. That’s precious.

ALL of the staff are so sweet, friendly, genuinely interested in me as a patient. Dr. Dugal is the best!!
Dr. Duggal operated on my right hand for extreme carpal tunnel which restored my right hand to close to normal use (I have occasional fatigue in my right wrist). This surgery in 2017 went very well, I recovered quickly and therapy was truly helpful. Now, I have returned to Dr. Duggal for treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome in my left hand, and I am hopeful that the outcome of treatment on my left hand will be as beneficial as that on my right hand. He is a fine surgeon and a very caring physician.
Excellent care and experience.
Any time I call his office about family leave paper they was always taken care of.
Feel very comfortable with Dr Duggall doing my surgery. I did a lot of research before making my choice as this is very important to my future ability to make a living.
