Dr. Duerkes came highly recommended during my pregnancy and after meeting him at my first prenatal visit I knew for sure I was in good hands. He has wonderful bedside manners, he's kind and compassionate and most importantly to me, I love that he takes the time to learn about me and my concerns to better care for me. His entire team from the girls at the front desk as well as his partner are all professional and friendly. You will not be disappointed.

Dr Duerkes has been my doctor for years now. My recent visit reminded me why I keep going back to him. I know I'm not the easiest patient and so I'm grateful when I see him and still walk out feeling valued, which hasn't always been the case at other doctors' visits. I appreciate dr duerkes so much and I hope he gets in return just how much he gives!!

I am a first time Mom, new to South Florida, and was very nervous about having the right doctor to help me through this. I couldn't have asked for a better Doctor - I feel SO grateful to have been under his care. Dr. Duerkes was phenomenal throughout the entire process of my pregnancy. He always took his time with me answering any questions I had and helping me with any concerns. I felt comfortable with him and trusted him completely. I recommend him over anyone else - he's the BEST!!!!!

Dr Duerkes is one of the kindest people I have ever met. He took the time to listen to my questions and concerns throughout my pregnancy he never made me feel rushed. He was such a calming presence during my labor. I am so thankful that he was recommended to me when I moved here. I tell all of my friends to go see him he is a wonderful doctor who genuinely cares about his patients.

I originally wanted to see Dr. Cohen, but he is no longer accepting new patients. This young man, Dr. Duerkes is very intelligent, considerate, well spoken and down to earth. Basically, smart and adorable (I don't mean any disrespect by that). Finally a doctor that has not lost their human consideration with all that knowledge. Dr. Duerkes answered questions and explained things that two other very well respected Holy Cross doctors had left me confused with. The staff was EXCEPTIONALLY nice

Dr. Duerkes is the best doctor! I'm a second time mom and what a difference in experience. He works in an office with 3 other doctors of which I've been seen by Dr. Cohen, and Dr. Catalano, both great Doctors . When I first started going there I didn't want to be seen by anyone but Dr. Cohen but after one appt w/ Dr. Duerkes that changed. If you want a doctor that takes his time with you, never rushes you, answers all your questions, warm and loving towards you then please choose him!

Best doctor I could've asked for being a first time mom. He's young and understanding. I ended up having a c-section and he left me a barely visible scar in the low bikini line. I would definitely recommend him. He's also very handsome ;)
