“In seven years a host of doctors, x-rays, blood tests, spinal taps and medications couldn’t help the pain…”
Seven years ago, just after the birth of my second child, I lost some range of motion in my right index finger. It was painful even to try to move that finger. I went to an orthopedic surgeon who took x-rays and did blood work to see if he could help me. He said he didn’t know what was wrong with my finger and prescribed an anti-inflammatory.
Since then I have been to numerous doctors who have tested for arthritis, lupus, MS and numerous other diseases that are too numerous to remember them all. Every doctor gave me the exact same answer; ‘I don’t know what is causing your loss of motion or pain in your finger, but try this medication and see if it helps.’ How could they prescribe a medication if they don’t even know what they are treating? I finally accepted that it was just something I would have to live with because no one could diagnose what the problem was or help me resolve it.
Last week, during a visit to your office, I mentioned my problem finger to you. You examined my finger, made a little adjustment in my wrist and my problem was gone. In about 30 seconds you diagnosed and cured what ailed my finger! In seven years a host of doctors, x-rays, blood tests, spinal taps and medications couldn’t help the pain in my finger, but in 30 seconds you relieved the pain and gave me back full range of motion and use of that finger. It has been a full week now and I still enjoy full use of all of my fingers. So, thank you from an extremely satisfied patient.

“When my doctor repeated the labs two months later my cholesterol went from 219 down to 120!”
In talking with my mother she told me she had been seeing you and you were able to help her with her high cholesterol. I made the trip from Eagle, Idaho for a visit with you. You worked out a plan to get things under control. You put me on a lifestyle plan and supplements. With making the eating changes and drinking more water and exercising I have felt better than I have in years.
When my doctor repeated the labs two months later my cholesterol went from 219 down to 120. I was able to quit the medication and will continue to follow the plan you have set out for me. I appreciate all the information you have provided for me. I am grateful for the valuable service you have rendered.

“I would encourage anybody suffering from pain to come to your office.”
Before receiving care in your office I suffered from terrible neck pain that radiated to my shoulders. I also suffered from TMJ pain. After giving up on Ibuprofen, my sister-in-law suggested I come see you…. Now, after adjustments and massages and the exercises you advised me to do, I am experiencing less pain and more freedom and mobility in my everyday activities. I would encourage anybody suffering from pain to come to your office.

“Within three visits the pain was cut in half. In two weeks I was pain free!”
Before seeking care in your office, I could not move my head because the pain from my neck was so severe. I tried taking Advil, which did not even touch the pain. I asked a friend if she knew a good Chiropractor and she recommended Dr. Duggar. After reviewing the x-rays and other exam results together, he recommended massage and chiropractic adjustments to my spine on an intense three times a week schedule. Within three visits the pain was cut in half. In two weeks I was pain free!

“It didn’t just involve the relief of the pain and numbness…it was a general feeling of beginning to feel healthy again!”
I wanted to take a few minutes to thank you for the care you and your staff have given me during this last month. As you remember, when I walked into your office on July 13th I was very anxious for some help. I was in pain and very discouraged about my health in general. I have to admit I chose chiropractic that day because I just couldn’t stand the pain any more, but I was also somewhat skeptical about the end results.
Needless to say, that first adjustment was a new experience for me. It was gentle and non-invasive. In fact, being skeptic I was, I wondered how that was going to help if it didn’t “hurt” to have an adjustment… I soon found out how much it did help. I started noticing little things that made me realize how much better I was feeling. It didn’t just involve the relief of the pain and numbness I had in my neck, arm and lower back, it was a general feeling of beginning to feel healthy again!
You didn’t make any promises to me back in July when I walked into your office, but I am certainly pleased with my experience so far. I realize that this is a continuing process, but with both of us working together, I know the results are going to exceed my expectations.

“…my headaches have virtually disappeared.”
For the past 12 years, I have been suffering from daily headaches and joint aches. I have gone to several doctors and I’ve tried many medications and nutritional supplements but I haven’t had any lasting benefits. When my Aunt Amy suggested I come to this office I was hesitant but I had nothing to lose so I came. With the regular adjustments, nutritional supplements and the structural work that I have received, my headaches have virtually disappeared. I feel that you cared about my problems since the first day I walked into your office and you were willing to take the time I needed to help me. I am only 19 and I want to thank you for helping me feel better so that I can enjoy the life that I have missed out on growing up.
Thank you! – Liz C. from Farmington, Utah
“As a result of your care I have much greater strength in my arms and shoulders.”
I would like to express my appreciation to you for the care I have received in your office. I came in the first time because of tendonitis in both of my elbows. I had experienced pain that limited my strength and activity for 3 years. I also had severe indigestion. Both of these created high stress in my life. Before seeing you I received cortisone treatments…and physical therapy, I had even seen another Chiropractor for about a year.
In your office, I was given exercises to do, massages and adjustments. I was also given supplements that have greatly helped my stomach problems. As a result of your care I have much greater strength in my arms and shoulders. The pain is less and intermittent rather than constant. I have learned to deal with stress better, and I am exercising regularly and eating better. Your care has been very helpful, but I have learned that my health is not just the doctor’s responsibility. The treatments have been more effective because I was willing (actually, it was a necessity) to make lifestyle changes.
I am grateful for all of your time and services to me.

“…when I wasn’t getting better I decided to give chiropractic a chance.”
Last fall I was in an automobile accident and had a back whiplash. This injured not only my neck but my upper back as well. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your help. When I went to a “regular” doctor, he sent me to the hospital for x-rays, he told me there were no broken bones, gave me a muscle relaxing prescription, told me to ice it often and sent me home… so when I wasn’t getting better I decided to give chiropractic a chance. After some diagnostic testing, I received regular adjustments and massage therapy and I did apply ice everyday. I can now move my neck and bend my back without any pain. Before I couldn’t turn my neck to the right without a lot of pain. You have helped me tremendously. You and your massage therapist are kind and caring people.
For those suffering from similar conditions – if it hurts – do something about it. Go see Dr. Duggar. Thank You Dr. Duggar!

“Ever since I can remember my feet have hurt so badly…”
As I left your office the other day I felt so good that I decided to write you a little note of thanks for all you have done for me. Ever since I can remember my feet have hurt so badly after I had been on them for more than an hour that I couldn’t walk anymore, sometimes for a day. I am only 20 years old but I have had fears that by the time I was 40, I’d be in a wheelchair. I have seen several physicians and podiatrists, I’ve even had surgery.
After about 2 or 3 weeks of coming here regularly, I have been able to walk for long periods of time, and my feet have never been so pain free. The nice thing is that my feet aren’t the only parts of my body that have benefited from your treatments. I have had fevers reduced, cramps relieved, and my hay fever has practically disappeared. You are a gentle doctor and a very nice person. Thank you for all you have done for me.
