Good, very pleased, pain relief reached my expectations.
Dr. Durkin has been great, I consider him a friend. He has been helping me with pain issues and his bedside manner is terrific.
Wading River, NY |
I have been seeing Dr Durkin for a few years, first at Stony Brook and now at Mather. He has always given me advice that was spot on for my back. Yes, I had to have two sessions of shots that did nothing, but that was insurance protocol. He is not "warm and fuzzy", but he is sincere and honest. I trust his opinion.

This doctor is more interested in treating the statistics / what he reads ie what the CDC recommends rather than assessing and formulating his own professional opinion on individual patients. He does what a published document says rather than treating the individual symptoms and side effects that each patient may experience. He's also very 'needle' happy (hospital procedures involving lumbar/cervical injections). He always want to go that route over meds, bc there's more $$ in it!

Great guy! Cares about his patients and skilled.
Suffolk County, NY |
Not only Dr. During was the only 1 who relieved my 56 yr old brother in law out of cancer causing pain his last few months of living BUT I feel soo much better with my multiple spine herniation's but I'm on less rx''s & less damage being done to my stomach, liver & kidneys! I was under the care of a different pain specialist for 12yrs that never offered procedures that I'm receiving now! Dr. Durkin even goes as far as swabbing the mouth of some of his pts to find the correct medication via DNA.

Dr. Durkin is a great doctor. He won't give you the warm fuzzies but he knows what he's doing. Four years ago he gave me an epidural that relieved my pain for 4 years. This time around he referred me to a surgeon, giving his honest opinion that my back has deteriorated too much to continue relying on epidurals for pain relief.
Run..it's the best advice I can give. This guy has a serious lack of compassion: despite his accolades and merits intellectually, his practice stays very much in the realm of theoretical with sincere lack of interest in real world problems. Certainly not qualified to be managing anything on behalf of anyone. Unless of course the problem is only in theory. Please don't take my word forit, go waste some of your precious time and see for yourself. This is only my first, second and third inpression.
New York, NY |
I had given up and my life would just be taking pain meds, sleeping and laying in the bed. A Doctor in the ER, that had seen me a few time for back pain. Wanted me to see Dr. Durkin. From the very first appointment he was able to help me and over a period of time has given me back a part life I have not had for along time.
Melville, NY |
The BEST doctor ever. He is one of the most caring and sincere individuals -- an old fashioned kind of guy who's practicing medicine for the right reasons. He understands pain like no one else and goes out of his way to talk on a level you can understand. He will do anything to help you improve your pain and suffering. He's super responsive, too, and Debbie in his office is a gem. You nay find a doc w/ better credentials or a more bubbly personality, but not a more dedicated or helpful one.
