Dr. Durante made me feel very comfortable and explained everything pertaining to the problem with my ear. I highly reccomend him.
in Bourne, MA |
Dr. Durante is the laziest doctor. Doesn't take the time to investigate what could be wrong. Super cynical and pretentious. I've never had a doctor role their eyes at my symptoms. And he didn't feel embarrassed when test results showed something was wrong. Huge waste of time!
