It is very obvious that Dr. Duffy loves what he does and cares about his patients. He calmed my fears about having LASIK Sugery at my age. I am loving no contacts or glasses except readers. Dr. Duffy is the.best of the best.

one of the best for cataract surgery
in Mobile, AL |
Dr. Duffey is an excellent Dr. He has done cataract surgery on my parents and husband and all were successful.

My husband came to Dr. Duffey having been a patient of Dr. Whitson in Indpls., IN back in 1993. He was already a double cornea transplant; double lens implant patient and received 3 additional procedures required to maintain his visual acuity. I have been a patient since told I had cataracts 12 years ago. I have the utmost respect for Dr. Duffey and his staff and would unconditionally recommend his services. In addition, I have had surgery performed by Dr. Valerie Vick and recommend her.

1 of 2: Had TIA woke up blind. Operator gave app. several weeks in future. Discouraged/Confused Called back; spoke to Duffey's nursing staff WHO OBVIOUSLY HAD BEEN TRAINED TO KNOW AN EMERGENCY - saw him w/i the hour. He explained what was going on, PUT ME AT EASE, called my personal physician with information needed-and sent me on...with peace in my heart knowing I was on the correct medical path #2 ... Cataract; put me at ease; even prayed w/ me before knowing my fears. Good Doctor!

I am a 54 year old male. I had essentially lost any usuable vision in one eye due to a cataract and I was slowly losing vision in the other eye due to a cataract. I have been under Dr. Duffey's care for the past year during which time, he has removed both cataracts, corrected astigmatisms in both eyes and also installed a multifocal lens in each eye. As a result of his good care, the quality of my life has been restored. Thank you sir for your good care!

Dr. Duffy and his staff are great. They made the dreaded cataract surgery as pleasant as possible. I would and have recommended Dr. Duffy to several people including family members.
Lillian, AL |
Dr. Duffey is knowledgeable and compassionate. He made me feel very secure in his medical care. He did a great job with my cornea transplant.
