Danny P. Pugh, MD, is a board-certified general surgeon at UT Health Athens, who applies the Golden Rule when caring for his patients. “I truly believe that as a physician it’s my responsibility to care for and treat patients as I would want to be cared for and treated. The opportunity to do something that gives people a better life is the most gratifying of experiences.”

Dr. Pugh was drawn to general surgery because of the vast array of procedures involved and the opportunity to help patients experiencing a broad spectrum of issues.

“I was fortunate to experience an excellent education at Southwestern Medical School and rigorous residency program in Dallas at St. Paul Hospital (now part of Southwestern Medical Center),” Dr. Pugh said. “I trained at a time when the breadth of surgery residency was extensive. This has allowed me to perform non-cardiac thoracic, vascular, trauma and general abdominal, pelvic surgeries and laparoscopic surgeries.”

Dr. Pugh is employed as a clinical faculty physician at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Tyler under the UT Tyler School of Medicine.

I needed a hernia surgery in my stomach, and no doctor in my area would touch me because I'm over weight and they said risk of infection or complications would be high. Dr Pugh was recommendedby a friend . I went to see him and he did my surgery with no problem! I highly recommend Dr Danny Pugh to anyone who needs this surgery. Thank you so much, Dr Pugh! 👍👍👍👍

In 2019 during a major surgery, my surgery turned into a crisis and my surgeon had to call Dr. Pugh for help. I have never met him, but from what I understand, he came in, took care of business, and saved my life. I'm Thankful to God for blessing Athens, TX with Dr. Pugh and all of the people who took care of me at UT Health Hospital, and Lakeland Medical Center, in Athens, TX
