What People Say About Dr. Edward Duckworth, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr Duckworth and his staff at St Luke's Boise have been great. My wife had a brain tumor reoccur and we were terrified that the recovery would be difficult as it was on the first surgery. Dr Duckworth and his staff reassured us that they were the team to address this issue. The outcome has been great, and the recovery was SO much better than the previous one done at a different facility/different surgeon, 3 years prior. We were out of the hospital in 3 days and all of the harsh after effects we experienced after the first surgery did not occur this time. We will be forever grateful to Dr. Duckworth and the team that took care of my wife. Highly recommended.

I am so grateful for Dr.Duckworth. He is like a modernized Einstein. He takes his time and listens to what you have to say, I looks at the whole picture instead of just what scans and test results show. I am not a textbook case, yet he did not give up on me. He was very conservative when it came to treatment plan as he didn't want things to get worse. Even though I needed surgery after trying everything else, he didn't just jump straight to surgery. Great staff.

He was extremely late to each appointment. Did not listen, did not care what I had to say. Terrible bed side manner. No compassion whatsoever. I would travel to Salt Lake to not go to his office again.

The Treasure Valley is quite lucky to have someone such as Dr. Duckworth here. We no longer have to leave the area to have these types of surgical procedures. Dr. Duckworth is highly knowledgeable and skilled. He also is kind and caring and listens and answers questions. His RNs and NPs are also top notch. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

We will be forever thankful for the skills and care of Dr. Duckworth after my husband suffered a ruptured brain aneurysm in Jan 2018. His entire team was wonderful. They were gracious in each step of the process taking time to answer question and explain what was next. I'm happy to report that my husband's recovery has been phenomenal and he is expected to make a 100% recovery. Thank you Dr. Duckworth!

I have a very complex case, with multiple symptoms, and multiple diagnoses. Dr. Duckworth reviewed my symptoms, examined me, came up with real options, and solutions, to help me. I am thankful I have found a very knowledgeable, compassionate neurosurgeon here in Boise. It was so refreshing to find a neurosurgeon here, who asked real questions and actually listened to the answers! I have more appointments to come, and I am confident in Dr. Duckworth's ability to provide the highest level of care.
