Dr. Durham is a highly knowledgeable and compassionate individual. He provides excellent care and educates the patient along the way. Never have I been rushed during an appointment; he devotes as much time as needed to ensure all questions are answered and the course of treatment understood.

He seems to be a decent doctor but his scheduling really stinks. I bring my parent to see him and we always wait 3-4 hours before we get called back to the room. Then it is another half hour or longer in the room before he comes in. Then he only sees us for about 5-10 minutes and walks out. If you like waiting a really long time to see a doctor, then he is the doctor for you.
