At first I was very intimidated by Dr. Duffy. I was reffered to him because of having marginal ulcers that are not cured through medication. He had to preform a partial gastrectomy. He has had to admit me to the hospital many times. He makes me feel comfortable and he cracks jokes now. I am def more at ease now. He is a great surgeon. I travel far to go see him.

Fantastic Doctor

Just want to say he is a wonderful doctor. The reviews scared me to meet him because they indicated his personality was cold. Here is what I will tell you. He is competent, and easy to talk to. You leave your consultation knowing he knows exactly what has to be done. He made the entire process of my mom having surgery and being scared so easy because we knew he was in control. End note: surgery a success!

I just had abdominal surgery with Dr. Duffy about a week ago. I was very pleased with his ability to communicate using verbiage that was easy to understand. He was very calming in the hospital and explained everything step by step. I would recommend Dr. Duffy without any hesitation.
