What People Say About Dr. Dawn Duss, MD

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.
