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

Dr Ducoin was highly recommended by my Radiation and Oncoligist Dr's to perform much needed esophagus surgery.My surgery was a complete success. Thankfully all results came back (Cancer Free)Dr Christopher Ducoin and his support staff were constantly following up with me to insure a positive recovery after surgery and did everything possible to assist in the healing process.With my family support and the support of Dr Ducoin and his team I'm on the road to recovery.Nice to find someone who cares

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.
