Dr. Duarte is a caring medical physician, he takes time with you, he listens to you and puts you on the right path to getting better. He is prompt and answers you correspondence quickly. Highly recommend him.

Dr. Duarte has been my doctor for over twenty years, but I am considering finding an office where the people answer the phones more quickly. I need to have a follow-up appointment in the next three weeks, but for over a month, I have not been able to schedule an appointment. When I do get through, the staff is courteous and careful, and when I do get an appointment, the staff is great. He used to be so good at explaining, and now he seems to be disconnected. I am frustrated.

I was just trying to make an appointment but I was treated like a criminal! Yes I'm taking painkillers, no I'm not an addict. The person taking my call was very arrogant and dismissing. She told me that the doctor would not see anybody on pain meds and hung up on me. Sorry I'm not perfect.

This doctor, has absolutely no idea what it means to follow through. We still, have yet to get results from a study done in 2014. Don't go to the man. He's all excuses.
No soft skills. He talks to his computer screen, even after asking questions he only looks over his shoulder to repeat what he just said. Not very personable and couldn't wait to leave the room multiple times. Don't recommend him to anyone...unless you don't want a relationship with your doctor.

Spends his time looking at his computer when asking questions. Did not explain why blood tests were being ordered nor the results, iron, B-12, D anemia all had low readings. Actually said he had other patients to see and ended the visit. Said to come back in 3-months for blood tests, I made an appointment for that draw and follow-up with Dr. Showed up for blood draw and there was no record of what he wanted drawn and he was out for the day. He didn't have the time to investigate my illness.
