Excellent Physician

My husband and I are patients of Dr. Ducombs. He has been my doctor for many years. We both are very satisfied with the time he spends with us, the care and follow up he provides. He is thorough and very easy to talk to. I recommend him highly.

Best doctor ever

Dr. DuCombs is the best doctor ever. He is kind, considerate, extremely knowledgeable and cares a great deal about his patients. He diagnosed by husband's brain bleed despite a missed diagnosis in the ED because he knew my husband did not have high blood pressure and no history of headaches. He is also my personal physician and is always willing to answer all my questions and explain the treatments he is giving. We are very grateful to have him as our doctor.

Horrible Personality

Dr. Ducombs is extremely rude and condescending. He is in and out of the room in 5 minutes or less, does not allow you the time to explain your symptoms, makes snarky remarks about your knowledge of your condition, does not explain anything to you, and leaves the room abruptly without telling you the visit has concluded. His staff is rude and lazy. His medical assistant can't take an accurate heart rate, and documents that it is normal when it is dangerously high, just so she doesn't have to be bothered by your emergency....she just ignores it and pretends it's normal. Wait times can be astronomical as the scheduler double books the doctors, even when only one is working that day. Prepare to wait for hours. Or just choose another doctor, most have polite staff who are trained well, and most doctors are kind and want to help people, they are not suffering from a God complex like this smarmy creep.
