I was highly impressed by Dr Duval. I recently had my an ACL reconstruction and meniscus resection done by him. The day of my surgery I was home and resting by noon. The level of care to which the surgery was done was better than I ever could have hoped for. My recovery time has been has been dramatically less than I expected and light years ahead of others I know that had the same procedure. I attribute that to the skill level of Dr Duval and the high caliber of care from LOS physical therapist Matt Ulm. To those complaining about his lack of bedside manner and the fact that he is not a very talkative person are missing out on a top shelf, high quality surgeon. I know some people like to be coddled and charming smooth talking Doctor give them the warm and fuzzy, but for my money, for my body, I would much rather the guy who focuses his attention on being a better surgeon rather being more likeable.

Made a diagnosis without an exam. Did not give me the courtesy to ask a question. Wrote a prescription for physical therapy. After physical therapy evaluation I was in severe pain for 4 days. Learned more from the therapist than the doctor. Have seen 3 doctors in the past several years from the same practice and was well satisfied. Dr Duvall was first available. Worst experience ever.

Zero bedside manner. Overall, a pretentious individual. I’ve seen him 2 times and After the 1.5 hours to see him ,he barely gave me 5 minutes of his time. And in that 5 minutes, it was as if he was bothered and honestly seemed offended by the questions I asking.

I had an amazing experience with Dr. Duval and his staff. My hip replacement surgery was quick and recovery has been great. I highly recommend him and his assistant Katie who is a NP and so very informative and outstanding personality... I thanks Dr. Duval & his group for all the medical help. Ron A Hayes

For both of my visits, after waiting 2+ hours after my appointment time, Dr. Duval allowed me roughly 5 minutes of his time before slapping a diagnosis on me and leaving. He did not make me feel like he had time for my questions or concerns.

The only issues Ive had are post surgery he is vague about what was done. The problem was fixed and my PT explained it all fully but my other orthopedic doctors were much more informative. Of course I had to go to Dr duval to fix what wasn't right.
