I met with Dr Duerr and was a bit apprehensive b/c of the rating I found on line. I will say that he a bit of an air about him. But I don't care if he has a friendly personality I just want him to be GOOD at his job. I found him to be very thorough, explained my situation at length providing statistic and lots of information I could consider. I left his office feeling that I had met with an expert and had complete confidence in his answers. He's a good doctor and staff are super friendly!

I had a horrible experience with Dr. Duerr. My family has a history of heart problems with my brother who is 10 years younger than me having by pass surgery a year ago. It was suggested by my brothers Dr. that family members be checked. I wanted to be proactive and follow up with a Cardiologist. Dr. Duerr treated me like I was wasting his time. Dr. Duerr was belittling and disingenuous. Needless to say I left in tears and have never been back. I do not recommend him to anyone.

Had a appt. w/ Dr. Duerr, the nursing staff was poorp. Dr. Duerr came in, after about a 50+ minute wait, told me to"go home he could not understand why I was there" spent 8 minutes w/me. I ended going to the Mayo Clinic, in Rochester, about 6 weeks later, they recommended a surgery after doing tests, etc. Dr. Duerr's arrogance could have killed me if I had not followed up on my home to she real professional heart clinic.

Not too many write why they would or would not recommend a doctor, so it is hard to say why the low ratings. Dr. Duerr is very knowledgable and explained my condition well in a way that I understood. Perhaps because he is very honest and doesn't sugarcoat his recommendations or diagnoses that some people don't like how he communicates. I, on the other hand, want that in a doctor, so I trusted him and stuck with him. I have since moved out of the area and am trying to find a doc like him.
