Fantastic and friendly staff! Having seen Dr Ducic years before, while he was at Georgetown University, thought i would learn more about my ongoing breast pain. In truth, I did not. Treatment indicated in the initial consultation was retracted in the follow-up visit. After keeping me waiting for over a half hour, he dismissed me after less than 10 minutes. Though a pioneer in his field, his rudeness, arrogance and lack of sensitivity was unexpected and inconsiderate. Obtain a second opinion and ensure a doctor you can TRUST!!

He does not have the best bedside manners. He did not even try to help me or refer me to someone else. I heard he is a doc for occipital neuralgia, not peripheral nerve damage or hard to find problems.

After EMG results showed severe nerve damage, to the point where the numbness in my leg was so bad foot drop had developed, it was only Dr. Ducic that showed a sense of urgency that it needed to be repaired immediately. I had surgery within five days and have since made a full recovery. Dr. Ducic is an expert in his field and is short and to the point, which I appreciate. My favorite part, the high-fives he gives to celebrate how far you’ve come!

Horrible communicator, rude and short with me on all visits. Ducic showed zero interest in speaking with me. He got irritated when I asked him basic question about my surgery. He was trained in Croatia NOT the US. Avoid Dr. Ivica Ducic at ALL costs!!!!!

I suffered a concussion and whiplash injury almost 4 years ago resulting in head and constant neck pain. I attempted numerous therapies and tried many medications without relief. I had a very poor quality of life. Desperate to get relief I had nerve decompression performed for occipital neuralgia by Dr. Ducic almost 5 months ago. I am happy with the results and feel that I am finally getting my life back. I was also happy with how quickly he was able to see me, especially since I was coming from out of state. His staff, Melanie and Inga, were great too and always helpful with handling medical and insurance questions that my family had.

I had a facial nerve injury that caused debilitating pain untreatable by medication for 2 years. Dr. Ducic was the first physician even willing to try this delicate nerve surgery. We had direct communication with him the whole process and he was confident in the path that would end the pain. It took two surgeries, but 5 years later I am still pain free and I have my life back.

I am a 60 year old female that had suffered from migraines since the age of 16. Dr. Ducic gave me my life back by removing a portion of my occipital nerve and decompression. I have never been happier! I generally go to Johns Hopkins for my health care, and without a doubt Dr. Ducic and his staff outshine them. He and his staff are awesome! I asked him about another chronic health issue, unlike other surgeons, he did not recommend any further surgeries. He recommended much less envasive options.

Dr. Ivica Ducic is not only a genius; he is a doctor with perhaps the best and most admirable 'bedside manner' of any I have experienced. He correctly diagnosed my unusual complaint -- a nerve tumor in my calf causing foot pain -- something few if any physicians could successfully treat. His office worked with my insurer to cover the procedure and, seemingly effortlessly, Dr. Ducic took care of a problem that would only have worsened. Being in Dr. Ducic's care is a complete pleasure.

When I was first referred to Dr. Ducic, I had been suffering neck pain and frequent headaches for at least two years. I had already seen a spine specialist and tried acupuncture, chiropractic and a pain management institute, getting only temporary relief. Dr. Ducic examined me and recommended nerve surgery to one side of my neck (not involving my spine). After he explained the procedure, I decided to try it and am delighted with the results: no more headaches, no more pain!

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Ducic. I had meniscus surgery that left me with an unstable knee&ankle.After seeing over 25 physicians who told me there was nothing medically wrong. I was referred to Dr. Ducic by my chiro. He spent the time going over my case and I never felt rushed. I felt heard& supported. I ended up having two nerve surgeries with Dr. Ducic and after surgery I have regained normal function. I even got to run and thanks to him, I have the chance to return to my sport

I was miserable before seeing Dr. Ducic, having suffered 9 months of horrible issues after being a victim of a car crash. I had seen doctors of every specialty, none of whom were able to solve my problems. Dr. Ducic is very knowledgeable, full of statistics, and empathetic, having survived a car crash himself. The surgery he performed was a huge success! I have very little pain; my vision has been restored; and, my sound & light sensitivities are greatly reduced. I highly recommend Dr. Ducic.

I am extremely excited to write about Dr. Ducic. For ten years following a craniotomy, I experienced fierce pain along the incision scars, affecting my entire head. From the moment we met, I knew Dr. Ducic’s priority was to fix the problem and improve my quality of life. Because of Dr. Ducic, I am now pain-free and living a better life. Consulting Dr. Ducic was the best decision I made regarding my condition. If you are in pain, I enthusiastically suggest you contact Dr. Ducic.

My name is Ralph, living in Europe and it was around January 2015 when I got a sharp pain in the right side of the back of my head(ON). Consequence was that before I was very active and now forced to be 24 hours in bed. I did not find any doctor in Europe who could help me but after researching I found the best doctor who listed to my problem, and really took action to make my life liveable again. The resection operation rehab was hard, but my pain level now decreased from a 10 to a 3. Thank you

Dr. Ducic is the best of the best! Not only does he take a personal interest in patients, but he listens and is never in a hurry to end an appointment. He cured my nephropathy through nerve decompression surgery and I couldn't be more thrilled. The best part is that Dr. Ducic was just as thrilled about my recovery as I was. He went above and beyond with my treatment and care, even giving me his personal cell phone number and calling me the night after surgery to ask me how I felt.
