What People Say About Dr. Duff Rardin, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I have tried to explain to this doctor my huge list of symptoms and I get cut off every time and told, "I can only address one thing". I have been having neurological symptoms for 5 years and have been run through tests one at a time with no diagnosis. I have deteriorated to the point that I have lost my ability to drive, walk, see, remember, etc and all I get is new medication and a psychiatric referral. I want to know what is wrong with me and proactively treat it, not take a handful of pills to disguise whatever I have.

Doesn't have compassion for someone that hurts ever day, and has made me feel like less than a person twice now. I recently moved out of state but still make the trip back for care. I have come off all drugs but one and the ONE medication that I need from them because my new Dr here hesitates to give me the dose I need, Dr Rardins nurse calls me back, puts me on speaker, makes me feel like a druggie, and says he said No. If your neurologist doesn't understand your disease, who will? Done here.

Dr. Rardin is very friendly and listens very carefully to my problems. He is extremely knowledgeable about neurology and offers solutions to my problems and tells me about possible side effects of different drugs I might take. Then Dr. Rardin follows up with a written report concerning the results of my appointment and forwards them to my primary care doctor. I left Dr. Rardin feeling uplifted and encouraged.

Terrible!! Perfectly healthy my entire life,then 1 day my life changed.Went to this Dr.and he was so very very condescending & did not listen to anything that I said.Made diagnoses on assumptions he had of me without even asking me about certain things.A Dr. should get to know a patient and listen,he doesn't.Felt just because he has a medical degree what he said was right and I was not allowed to have a different opinion. Don't go to this Dr. please, go some where else. I will never ever go back

Went to this Dr. with high hopes of help after months of no answers.He made us feel beneath him, very uncomfortable. Did NOT listen to us at all. My spouse left in tears.A Dr. should LISTEN & be compassionate & want to help.I would never recommend this Dr.No Dr. should make a patient whose life changed due to illness feel more hopeless than they already do,& he did just that to my spouse. No compassion,no care,made assumptions & did NOT listen,acted like he knew my spouse better than we do.AWFUL

Dr. Rardin took the time to explain the significance of a 2nd brain tumor on my MRI. He was thorough in his exam, and was personable. He seemed very caring and took the time to answer all my questions. I highly recommend him.

I went to mission neurology with an urgent consult. The consult was put in on Friday and I was called the same day for an appointment on Monday morning at 8am. My nurse was personable and sweet. Dr. Rardin was WONDERFUL! He was thorough and answered questions, learned our names and was honest. He is a great doctor! I highly recommend him! Super personable as well!

Consultation only summarized results from other doctors. Poor patient engagement skills. Unfriendly and not able to address questions. Lack of follow up on testing.

I am always treated with care and understanding. Dr. Rardin has an amazing staff and my call are returned always with instructions and empathy to my issues. I would highly recommend Dr. Rardin and his entire team. I travel from SC and would never intrust others with my care. Five stars more if possible. James Clarke.
