Patient Comments (2)
in Laguna Beach |
My baby was treated by Dr. Duda. He was a few weeks premature and very small. At 8 weeks old she told me vaccines are absolutely safe. She them injected him with several. He had a very serious reaction and could have died. She never advised me to report the reaction to VAERS and she never followed up to see if he recovered. The worst part is that she assured me it was safe and has no liability for her lie. A federal law provides doctors with full immunity from lawsuits for vaccine injuries.
