Perfect Doctor

I don't go to the 'doctor' often. I apply a holistic approach to my health but when I need to go, Dr. Duck is the MAN! I'm a 50 year old woman and have seen my share of medical pros. Dr. Duck is smart, sensitive, responsive, attentive and wears awesome ties and sox!

Good doctor

I had some medical issues for the past 10 years that no doctor has been able to properly diagnose or resolve. Dr Duck was able to do it successfully in about 3 months. I've been seeing Dr Duck for about 3 years now and his treatment is still working very well. I understand that some people may not like his bedside manner, but honestly, I would much rather have a doctor that can actually fix things than just pat me on the back and tell me it's going to be ok.
