Dr. Shugg empowers her cardiology patients at Summit Medical Group to take control of their health. She strongly believes patient education is key to treatment success.

To her credit, Dr. Shugg has volunteered her expertise to treat more than 700 patients in El Salvador. In addition to providing general medical treatment, she has helped educate patients and she has encouraged them to continue their treatment to improve and maintain their health.

When she is not working with her patients, she enjoys running, cycling, and scuba diving.
