Have you seen Dr. Ivica Ducic?
October 5th, 2017
“You have to be more objective and think about your pain, not about how you look.” In a serious look, Dr. Ducic said these words to me before I underwent of surgery. For a moment, I considered canceling the procedure, but I had faith that Dr. Ducic would be able to help me. The surgery lasted two hours and the recovery was about 4 weeks. During this time, Dr. Ducic showed me incredible kindness. He was constantly checking on my condition to make sure that I was doing ok. I remember clearly being in severe pain after the surgery. Even though it was a public holiday, Dr. Ducic took the time to meet me at his office. With confidence and years of experience, Dr. Ducic removed the primary nerve from my amputated leg. I had been in pain for 12 years and suffered immensely. The amputation was performed in 2004 during the war in Iraq. Since then the pain had affected my life totally. After the surgery I am able to stand and walk for a longer period of time with no pain to my leg. Thank you Dr. Ducic from the bottom of my heart and thank you Dr. Ali AL-Attar for recommending Dr. Ducic. Words cannot express my gratitude to the both of you. So if you are living with chronic pain following trauma or any surgery, including leg amputation, do not settle living on drugs, rather seek highly specialized care by Dr. Ducic at Washington Nerve Institute (www.DucicMD.com)

I think Dr. Ducic is a fantastic physician, and I would recommend anyone who can't get a straight answer, diagnosis, or treatment option for peripheral nerve injury/post-operative neuropathy/etc. to set up an appointment with him. I traveled a great distance to see him and he was truly empathetic and understanding of my serious condition and the limited treatment options that remain. That being said, unlike all other doctors I have visited, he provided me with non-medicine treatment (surgical option) that doesn't sound too crazy all things considered. I also appreciated that he did not try to say that the surgery will work, or to what extent it will work. He simply said, that due to my past surgeries, it is impossible to predict how well it will work, but it is still a viable option to try. I only had one other option on the table, which he said was also a decent approach. Dr. Ducic is kind, while remaining factual, and does come to the table with options when other doctors and surgeons fail to do so.

dr ducic is the perfectionist Dr who operated on my occipital neuralgia.He gave me my life back, as I was in 24/7 pain. His bedside manner is quite ,professional and compassionate . I travelled 800 miles to see him. His knowledge of nerves and his experience along with caring for his patients separates him from other Drs. highly recommended.
August 28th, 2015Patient of Dr. Ducic
Dr. Ducic is a really great doctor, very knowledgeable and I plan on doing surgery with him either at the end of this year or next year. I feel very confident and fully trust Dr. Ducic in helping with my Chronic Daily Pain and Headaches that I began having after a really bad car accident in 2013. I am very picky on the doctors I see and do tons of research to choose a doctor. This Doctor also works with my other really great Dr. Crutchfield which I highly recommend as a doctor as well. I never have to wait long in the waiting room, I always get a reminder call two days before the appointment, and the doctor always answers all my questions, doesn't rush me out of the office, and explains to me all the information I need to know about the surgery I need to have. He also talks about other treatments that can be done and the statistics on those treatments. I could not ask for or recommend a better doctor with someone with the medical issues that I have. I only wish he would help with prices on the surgery, since insurance companies wont approve the Nerve Decompression Surgery. For people in my position that were out of work for a year and struggle its very hard. I would have been able to finance this surgery but since I was not working my credit went from high 700's to mid 500's.
March 6th, 2015Migraine / Daily Chronic Headache
I have suffered from migraines since I was 8 years old, progressively getting worse until, at the age of 55, I had constant pain in the middle of my forehead. I made every lifestyle change possible with very little relief. I saw numerous neurologists, frustrating both of us since none of their prescriptions worked at all and the side-effects were unacceptable. I am so happy to have found Dr. Ducic. I can finally go outside when snow is on the ground and ENJOY it without hiding in a dark room from the bright reflection of light. That, as well as other favorite activities, no longer trigger a migraine for me. One year after surgery, I have most of my life back and am very grateful to Dr. Ducic that he persists in this surgery making it available to people like me who would otherwise be failed by the medical community and end up with a disability.

March 10th, 2011Best Doctor Ever!
My husband had suffered for 13 years with severe headaches and was on the verge of losing his job. We arrived 10 minutes early for the appointment as we are from Montana and were unsure of the traffic. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Dr Ducic was in the room with us before our actual appointment time was scheduled. He asked questions and gave us options as to which procedure we wanted done. He answered all of our questions I had from reading about the procedure on the internet, and was not irriated about doing so as some doctors are. The surgery was started early and all the staff in the waiting room and recovery were wonderful. I would recommend Dr. Ducic to anyone. The best doctor we have ever seen!!
