It went great. I'm still recuperating but it's going well. I had both hips done at the same time - not that common but Dr. Pugh thought it would be fine in my case and he was correct. I've had zero problems. He's a very good surgeon and, unusual among surgeons, he's also a very nice, friendly guy with a great bedside manner. He not only visited me in the hospital, he stopped by almost every day I ...

Needed hips replaced. Wanted a surgeon who used anterior approach when possible. Dr. Pugh was recommended by two people who had used him for the same surgery.

I didn't have a chance to sit down before I was called in. Dr. Pugh has a very pleasant PA (physician's assistant) who saw me first and examined my hand. When she couldn't identify the exact cause of the pain (and I couldn't either), she called in Dr. Pugh. He came in right away and with one brief exam/manipulation of my thumb, had me saying and quot;OUCH!and quot; More degenerative arthritis, thi...

I have seen Dr. Pugh a handful of times now. My most recent visit was for what I had assumed was an old soft tissue injury to my thumb that continued to cause pain and weakness. I had pain while dressing, picking up a book or binders (which I do a lot), and anything that pushed my thumb back or involved a "power pinch" left me in pain that sometimes lasted days. Marisol and the rest of the front desk staff are always cheerful and accommodating and I never have to wait more than a couple of minutes. The day of this appointment happened to be the day BART transbay service was out due to a fire and traffic on I-80 was horrendous. I let them know I'd be late and they were so nice and cheerful about it, I could hardly believe it. I arrived 20+ minutes late and still, no wait and no "attitude". They're always friendly and they love dogs. (Mine is with me 24/7 and acccompanies me to work. They very kindly let her come in with me.) A quick co-pay at the desk (I have a Sutter Health network PPO, so I don't receive a bill), a Tootsie Roll from the bowl and we were done. Correction: While the buildings are all connected, this office is located at 3012 Summit St or 350 30th Street, not so much 3100 Summit, which is a full block away. You can take a free shuttle from MacArthur BART up to Pill Hill.

He's a very good orthopedist. He's fairly available. We have recommended him to others.

Dr. Pugh is my wife's orthopedic surgeon.

They are great. The office is very responsive and they are very helpful.

I went to him for a cortisone shot. He has also done tendon repair for me.

He is extraordinarily nice and happy. His office and staff is friendly as well. He followed up afterwards and I had a wonderful recovery, relatively pain free. He has wonderful personal qualities. He is very gentlemanly. They talk to you like a very worthwhile person.

Dr. George Pugh is my orthopedic surgeon and I went to him for a torn maniscus surgery and follow-up a year ago.
