Dr Durnas has a poor reputation among colleagues of various nursing homes. He has had multiple affairs while he was married and would walk in facilities holding hands with his latest nurse affair(while both were married to other people) in front of staff. Very sociopathic doesnt care how viewd by others and ignores patient complaints, short and sometimes obnoxious with elderly. Has been banned from many nursing homes due to bizarre and unprofessional behavior. Really should have his license revoked and very sad and scary case of a Doctor.

Uncaring. Does not have respect for women. Poor diagnostician and has a history of prescribing inappropriate medication for the elderly. Is disrespectful and condescending to elderly women. Is more interested in scoring with nurses than caring for his patients.

Found a great Doctor!!!

Dr. Durnas is one of the most caring and compassionate physicians that I have ever met. He has cared for a couple of my family members and treats the patient as if they are a member of his family. Truly a patient advocate!!

Bedside Manner???

My mother is a patient of Dr. Durnas, he sees her at her nursing home. He has no bedside manner whatsoever and is very flippant when my mother or myself ask questions. He labels himself a "Geri-Doc" but is not good with older adults at all.
