Dr. Pugh was superb as always. When she moved her practice from ADC, we followed her to BS & W.That is how much we think of and trust her to take excellent care of both me and my wife. Dr. Pugh listens to us, provides recommendations that are "spot on", and is exceptionally knowledgeable. She stands out among the many physicians we have seen as the best by far. We are thankful to have her as our primary care provider. I can recommend Dr. Pugh wholeheartedly!

Dr. Pugh is the best primary care doctor I have ever had. She is conscientious, caring, extremely professional and knowledgeable, takes into consideration my feelings, and always answers my questions clearly and thoroughly. She is very helpful when the situation warrants a referral to another specialist. Any hospital or clinic would be blessed to have Dr. Pugh working for them. I could not be happier having Dr. Pugh as my primary care physician. Baylor, Scott & White is lucky to have her under employment. If there was a way to do it, I would recommend her as "Doctor of the Year" or "Top Doctor in Texas".

I have been seeing Dr. Pugh for about four years. I have to say, that at 77 (my age) I have never been to a physician who is as caring and thorough as Dr. Pugh (and I have been to many over the years). I would highly recommend her to any of my friends and relatives who are seeking to find/change their current providers.

Dr Pugh is the best physician I've ever had. She listens and explains very well what she believes is happening and the next steps. She follows up on labs as she says she will. What I love about her is that she doesn't treat you like a patient, but rather as a family member and she's determine to find the root of the problem and get you on a healthy road to recovery. We need more caring physicians like her! This is the reason I followed her to Baylor Scott and White.
