SDMI interviewed Dr. Jugler to learn more him:
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE RADIOLOGY?
During medical school I battled wanting to have sub-specialty training while also wanting to maintain a broad knowledge base of medicine. Then, I was on a neurology rotation where I was able to work closely with the neuroradiologists and neuro interventionalists. I was able to see how radiology impacted the care of my patients and the training they received throughout multiple aspects of medicine. I realized that radiology was the perfect specialty to blend my desire for sub-specialty training while still having a broad knowledge within medicine. Being able take that knowledge to affect the care of each of our patients in a unique way is ultimately the reason why I chose radiology.
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE YOUR SUB-SPECIALTY?
Since medical school, I have always been interested in diseases of the neurological system, especially vascular diseases and stroke. Knowing that diagnoses and treatments are rapidly evolving in these areas made me want to be a closer part of these advances in the care of patients impacted by these diseases.
WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO JOIN THE SDMI FAMILY?
My wife was raised in Las Vegas and we have 2 boys and a girl on the way. We had lived away from family for so many years, we felt it was the perfect opportunity to be closer to family. When deciding on practices in the Las Vegas area, SDMI offered the best opportunity to continue broadening my career while delivering high quality care to all my patients.
HOW DO YOU SEE YOURSELF IMPACTING HEALTHCARE IN LAS VEGAS?
Medical education is growing in Las Vegas and with that comes innovation and opportunity. I see myself trying to attract new healthcare innovation to the Las Vegas area and somehow getting involved with medical education, all to continue to improve healthcare delivery in the city.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PART ABOUT BEING A DOCTOR?
Working in a team with the common goal to treat and heal people.
