Really only cares about himself, doesn’t follow moral ethics physicians’ fiduciary obligation to promote the patients’ best interests only his own.

Those who have left a negative review because Dr Durkin didn't hand you out opioids and other DANGEROUS drugs should take a look in the mirror and ask yourself "maybe he's right." There is nobody as advanced as Dr Durkin in interventional pain management in the triple-state area.

He Only cares about doing injections and forcing people off their meds. If you do need meds even if you have tried everything else and are still willing to he will call you a drug addict to your face no matter how extensive your patient records are. He is extremely rude and never takes the time to even go over test reaults he has ordered for you. He has patients pay a ton to get a DNA test then just hanfs you the paper he printed from the company who runs the tests website and tells you nothing

Both my wife & I have been under Dr. Durkins care for knee & back pain. His skill is unbelievable to stop a # 10 pain. Actually we just started visiting his office for new pain issues that we were told could not be helped . My knees are like new & under his maintenance visits my pain does not return. Dr. Durkin we both thank you. Sincerely Carl & Delilah Cantone

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!

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.
