I am so sorry about Dr. Pugeda. I just now send it on my computer. I loved that men being my doctor. When he was telling all his patients that he was retiring and to seek another Dr. and I told him "No , he was my dr. and I wasnt getting another one. He laughed and he kept seeing me at his office till I eventually got another one. He was a very good dr and I made him laugh alot. I worked at UPS and the only time I seen him was he come out there to get a package.My heart goes out to his family.I'm sure he'll be sadly missed.
