Dr. Duncan is a wonderful doctor. He listens to everything you have to say, asks questions, and then give a thorough opinion on the best way to proceed with care. I HIGHLY recommend him. He is very personable and easy to talk to.

Doctor's Response

I treat my patent s as I would treat my one family. Many patents do not need surgery or advanced imaging. My job is to educate those patients in conservative care for good spine health.

I know you probably dont hear people say they enjoy an office visit at a doctors office. i just got to say it was a pleasure meeting Dr. Duncan and his staff.Dr Duncan took the time to listen to me.I felt that he really cared about me and the problem ive been having with my neck. Then after doing x-rays and asking me many questions concerning my pain he explained the route of treatment that he thought was best for me.He didnt try to push pain medication on me instead he got to the root of the pain.I want to tell anyone out there wanting a caring dr and friendly staff to look Dr Duncan up at watauga orthopedics.

In 2008 I had an anterior cervical diskectomy and fusion by Dr. Duncan. I have been pain free since that time. Dr. Duncan explained all my options in detail before I made the decision to have the surgery. He did not order unneccessary tests or treatments that he knew would not benefit me. I would highly recommend him.

was sent to you for the sole purpose of obtaining a M.R.I for accurate diagnosis of my problem as requested by two other physicians and didnt even have one done had brought to his attention an issue of numbness in my legs and total loss of feeling in my feet and this issue wasnt even responded to by dr.duncan, needless to say my confidence in him was totally lost at that point and i will definatly be seeking another opinion from another surgeon as this is the only back god gave me and am determined to take care of myself so that my future isnt hindered by a physicians neglegents

I seek to treat my patents as I would my family. For many patients with spine pain an MRI scan is not indicated. MRI scans are not helpful as a screening tool for back pain, and they do not show us where the pain is coming from. MRI scans reveal typical degenerative changes that we develop with age. I typically order MRI scans wen surgery is contemplated but not for axial pain.
