What People Say About Dr. Christopher Ducko, MD
Reply
Eleven years ago, Dr Ducko operated on my lung cancer and I have seen him every year since for follow-up. I follow is instructions and have survived, thanks to him. The nurses think, as I do, that he is wonderful and always follow his instructions. I have a high regard for him. He truly takes care and has great concern for his patients. He has helped me through some very rough times and we are lucky we have him and his staff to help us. I have recommended him to my best friend and she feels as I do. Dr. Ducko is an extremely talented and dedicated physician.

The experience I had with Dr. Ducko was very disappointing. He may be a skilled doctor, however, his bedside manor is horrific. He talks down to his patients, talks over them, and shows zero respect. Additionally, he was extremely rude to the nursing department.
