Patient Comments (3)
Ansonia, CT |
Dr. Dufour was very rude. She doesn't even knock on the door before coming in, as you are sitting there in a gown. She has no bedside manner, is very arrogant, and judgmental. She basically had me in tears the entire appointment, telling me how "obese" I am. I know I am overweight, but i am not THAT much over weight where that needed to be the topic of discussion for most of the visit. When I was upset, she asked me if I was depressed! Seriously?!?!? I will NEVER go back to her- EVER.

She does not deserve to practice medicine. After being involved in a car collision and being traumatized by not remembering how to walk she had the nerve to say to me that I was acting like a toddler and I was dibillitated. She also neglected to provide me with test results because she did not think it was urgent enough to Mitford me. I would think twice before ever stepping foot in her office.
