Dr. Durst did a very excellent breast reduction on me in 1996. I have seen his work on a friend’s face who had to have an incision from forehead to chin. She looked like Frankenstein. However, after healing, you would have no idea she had surgery. Fabulous job.

Being a patient of Dr Durst for thirty years, there isn't enough good things to say about him and his staff. No disappointment with the professionalism, knowledge, understanding, and compassion for me and what I observed in patients while visiting his office. Being very particular about my Doctors, Dr Durst is not only an outstanding doctor, but an outstanding person! Rest easy in choosing this true Professional, in Every Sense of The Word.

My experience with Dr. Durst and staff is tops. I interviewed other surgeons and decided on Durst based on his experience, patient examples and additional reviews by patients. I'm glad I did my research. This organization is staffed by a wonderful group of professionals that exhibit confidence coupled with that special personal touch that made me feel at ease with my surgery.
