He met with me in September to discuss my SVT and my treatment options, and explained things in ways I, a non-medical person, was able to understand. The procedure went well and I feel fantastic. Dr. Duc's overall demeanor and "bedside manner" made me secure, calm, and relatively anxiety free. I do not hesitate to fully recommend Dr. Duc. He's a very kind and thoughtful man.
