What People Say About Dr. Clark Duchene, MD
Reply
Dr. Duchene, PA Tolsma and Darliss the surgery scheduled are the rudest surgery team I’ve ever seen. They Refused surgery on 2 tears in my shoulder. Sent me to neurology&PT. They called me and told me they were calling to schedule surgery in a week and never called. I called several times to reach a surgery scheduler and got only an answering machine and no return call. Then PA Tolsma called to say they changed their mind. No surgery. I sought a 2nd opinion. They agreed to surgery.
