I would not recommend Dr. Du Coin. I had a VERY unsuccessful esophageal surgical experience that resulted in weeks in the hospital. He never followed my condition with phone calls or text even though I have continued spending months dealing with the many problems that resulted from his failed surgery.

Dr. DuCoin is the “Extraordinaire” in hiatal hernia repairs. After being advised that the likelihood of a subsequent repair from two previous procedures would be doubtful, he stepped in and performed an absolute miracle! His bedside professionalism and empathy shown towards me was unmatched. A shoutout goes to him and his entire staff!

Dr Ducoin is a fantastic surgeon, and I give him my highest recommendation. I had laparoscopic stomach surgery, and I recovered quickly. He prescribed medication for pain, nausea, and a laxative, none of which I ever needed. Every patient experience may be different, but I had an excellent experience and give Dr Ducoin thanks for such a wonderful job.

I met Dr. Ducoinin in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Ducoin said, “If nothing shows up on the tests, I will do an exploratory.” I completed the tests in about 4 month, nothing seemed problematic. He agreed to do the exploratory surgery. He had to remove a pelvic screen (hernia surgery-post 20 yrs) that had wrapped around the adhesions and the intestines. He had to re-work the intestines, cut out the screen and the adhesions. He described the main source of my pain area as “a ball the size of my closed fist”. What a mess. recovery went well, I was home in about 10 days I am beginning to like food again. I would like to thank the support team of USF Fellows and interns, the nurses both day and night staff and including the sanitizing team all at TGH were just absolutely amazing. I couldn’t have asked for a better care/outcome of a really bad situation. Two words don’t seem to be enough, but THANK YOU "Job well done". BTW, Happy Doctor's Day (Friday, March 26th)

I had a recent revision surgery for a hiatal hernia and fundoplication from another surgeon. Anxiety and fear over another surgery melted away after Dr. Ducoin patiently spent time listening to my questions and explaining the surgical procedures. He spoke with me in the pre-op holding area and we agreed on a post-op hospital plan for pain control and nausea. He is indeed a skillful surgeon. I felt discomfort not pain and by my 4th day after surgery I was out of the house running errands with my husband. His staff quickly responds to My Chart questions. Care at TGH by nursing staff was superb.

I am 3 months post op gastric bypass patient. Dr. Duchoin is a ROCKSTAR! he is an analytic and forensic "listener". He wants to know what I'm feeling. Richly focused on pain management, and overall surgical care. Never in a hurray, and every question was treated thoughtfully. he has a team of "Best-in-Class" experts, most of whom he has trained. If you are a candidate for abdominal surgery, go no further than Chris Duchoin. I have over 11 surgeries behind me, and he is the absolute best there is.

I cannot thank Dr. Ducoin enough for the surgery he performed for me. Because of his skill, I had no pain and was able to resume normal activities the following day. He did superior work and I would highly recommend him to anyone. He is the best of the best.

I had aspiration pneumonia six times in 14 months and my pulmonary doctor suggested I have Nissen Fundioplication surgery to stop the acid reflux from invading my lungs. I researched and found the greatest references from friends and former patients who absolutely, highly recommended Dr. DuCoin. They were all right! He is not only a top-notch surgeon, but also has a warm and friendly bed-side manner. I was put at ease about the robotic procedure and the surgery went well and no complications!

I have suffered from reflux for over 20 years and also had an esophageal hernia. Dr. Ducoin performed surgery to rectify both. The surgery was a huge success, with just a 2 day stay in the hospital and little discomfort I am now experiencing life with no medication for my previous symptoms. I would highly recommend Dr. Ducoin and this particular surgery, it has truly been a life altering procedure and one that has made my quality of life 100% better! Betty Clement

The best doctor ever! I had a robotic assisted operation a month ago and EVERYTHING went smoothly. He, and his team, are competent, articulate, and are empathetic to my specific condition and needs before and after the operation. The operation was a complete success. I felt virtually no pain and very little soreness in recovery. My wife, normally suspicious of doctors, is completely won over by him. The surgery team were equally so. If you need a serious operation, "He's the MAN!"

Dr. Ducoin is possible the best Dr. my husband has ever seen. He's concise, informative, patient, and spends time with his patients. He even came out to the waiting room to get us when a appt. had been cancelled to talk with us. He explains things about esophagus cancer in layman terms so that we can understand what he's means. Wouldn't go to any other Doctor. Hiram Rivers Singleton, Bay St. Louis, Ms.
