Dr. Duncan has a very direct approach which I find refreshing. She's had 3 back surgeries herself and is very compassionate, empathetic and driven to set her patients up for success. Because of both her extensive training and expertise she is not a push-over. If medical evidence supports pain management treatment she will be the best physician and advocate you could ever want. However, if you’re coming solely for pain medicine she is “NOT” your doctor. She is the real deal all the way around.

Dr is very kind compassionate and caring about her patients and works long hours to help each with pain relief.

Dr. Duncan is a very caring, knowledgeable and professional doctor. I have met people in her waiting room who have traveled all over South Central Texas to see her! I have been going to her for years. She is the very best pain doctor I have ever seen and I have seen a handful! I almost hate to tell you how wonderful she is in fear that the demand for others to see her will make it extremely difficult for me to get in! Oh well, we all deserve the very best treatment!

I have been seeing Dr. Duncan for several years. She genuinely cares about her patients. There are times when she does run a bit behind on schedule, & I don't mind it one bit, because she is taking her time to listen and talk to her patients. She has never rushed me or anyone else. Very few doctors take their time to listen to their patients and not rush them. She's worth the wait. She is not just a wonderful doctor, she is an amazing, lively, kind, and loving person. I love her and her staff.

Dr Duncan is an outstanding doctor with an awesome bedside manner. She has the ability to make you feel at ease. Her knowledge and explanation help to understand diagnoses. I would highly recommend her to friends, family and acquaintances.
Dr. Duncan listens well and takes time to look wholistically at the patient. She explains treatment options with clarity and detail that respects the intelligence of the patient. Her nursing background serves her patients well in the quality of care she provides.
in Floresville, TX |
Dr Duncan is a fantastic Doctor. Her staff is always very pleasant and caring. Yes, there is a wait time when having an appointment with Dr. Duncan but once she is speaking to you her full attention is on you and your well being! Dr. Duncan has compassion for her patients but truly understands my trials with having had multiple back surgeries as she has been thru back surgery herself! I would highly recommend Dr Duncan to anyone suffering with pain issues.
in San Antonio, TX |
I've been treated by Dr. Duncan for just over one year due to a severe back injury. I was taken back, in a very good way from my very first visit. She listened, took her time and treated me with a level of respect that is rare. Dr. helped me determine a terminal solution to the problem and connected me with the right back surgeon. Dr. Duncan was my anestesiologist during surgery and managed post surgical pain. Wait times are long but worth it. She feels more like a friend than a provider.
in Bulverde, TX |
Dr. Duncan spent a great deal of time with me reviewing and explaining to me my films. She provided clear explanations as to why my previous procedures did not solve my pain and she directed me to another doctor that would be more able to solve my problems. Her hours of operation fit my schedule very well. I would recommend her to anyone. I waited a long time to see her, but it was worth it, especially if she gave everyone the same amount of time that she gave to me.
