    Rancho Palos Verdes, CA |
    This was my first appointment with Dr. Duffin. He was very personable and communicated well (both listening and talking). His diagnosis seemed to be right on. He even found and showed me web sites that give more info on my conditions, and printed out the pages for me to take home. By the way, the education listed for him on this website is incomplete. Talking with him, he said he also graduated from USC Medical School in Rheumatology. I checked on that afterwards, and he is right.

    Difficult to get appointments and once at the office can take more than one hour past scheduled appointment time to be seen. He is not up to date with most recent treatments and modalities, but is okay for bread and butter type of illness and treatment.
