Not only the office staff but also the staff on the hospital floor,,,there is no question as to how and when anything is to be done. Everyone is so well trained in the correct procedures and all turns out GREAT with the surgery. The patient needs to follow their instructions. Therapy personal are also GREAT.

I cannot say enough GOOD things about Dr. Duke. His knowledge, expertise and bedside manner is nothing but the BEST. His office staff is the GREATEST. They are very helpful, friendly and gets any of your questions answered as well as handling any referrals needed. This is definitely the place to go to if you need a hip replacement. That is what I had done and free from all pain from day 1 and did not need any additional pain medicine.

Great staff, took excellent care of me. Surgery went as planed. Follow up visit in hospital was caring. The staff does not rush you in and out. They listen! Also it not a office that want to rush you to the O.R. Many preventive measures taken to help you out.

Dr Duke is a miracle man! He not only replaced my knee but straightened it! Due to an injury, I had not had a straight knee in 20 years! Amazing! His bedside manner is off the charts. What a gentleman! Recovery was minimal and you can hardly see my scar. His staff is very supportive. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone!
