My daughter had a rare eye condition which required us to consult with the top specialists in Boston, Philadelphia and Miami. We settled on Dr Duker who was amazing and saved my daughter’s eye sight. We firmly believe he is the best in the country and has a great patient manner to compliment his expertise.

Very knowledgeable, very smart, very clear in his explanations, very reassuring. A top expert in his field, and a nice guy to talk with. It can take a while to schedule an appointment with him because he's a busy man -- Tufts professor, researcher, surgeon, entrepreneur -- but it's worth it.

I have been a patient of Dr. Duker's for two years. He is #1 in his field. He takes the time with you during your visit and tells you what is going on and how he will take care of your illness. I went to him for a second opinion and didn't think twice about making him my doctor.
