Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Poor management of referrals from this office. No call back with update and another week behind on a crucial procedure that needs to be done.

Dr. Duss is a breath of fresh air! She gives you all the facts and explains thing in a way that makes sense and easy to understand! From the moment we walked into her office, we knew that she was meant to be part of our village in caring for our children! We would be lost without her!

I am an adult who had a difficult time traveling from Orlando to Jacksonville to see Dr. Duss but it was well worth the tedious trips. She is very pleasant patient and informative and most importantly, proficient and caring. The surgery went smoothly and the results are going just as she explained they would. I am a very happy patient who can't state strongly enough that finding her was a blessing. Katherine Wadsworth

I have been under the care of Dr. Duss for the better part of three years now and I must say I have never been more impressed with a doctor or the person behind the white coat. Dr. Duss has a special gift for helping patients with anxiety as well as in the operating theatre. She is truly a special person and I could not have been more satisfied with the level of care both prior to and subsequent to my surgery.

Outstanding! She is a ball of dynamite - she is animated, upbeat and is great at explaining everything. She called me herself the afternoon after the surgery and since it was a weekend gave me a direct line to her in case I had any concerns.
