baton rouge, la |
so terrible I am surprised his stuck up self hasn't gotten sued. who knows though. He might have been already. If not, I hope someone does in the future so they can ruin him financially and ruin his (bad as it is) reputation. Terrible, terrible, terrible.

Dr. Duarte has performed back surgery on me as well as follow up care. His staff is incredibly friendly and compassionate. It has been 10 years since my surgery and I am still doing well after the surgery.
