As a general internist, I see patients 16 and older. My practice covers a wide range of healthcare needs from colds and flu, physicals, well woman exams, men's health, to chronic disease management. The Questcare team and I want to get to know you, discuss your health concerns, and help you make informed health decisions. We can often provide same day or next day appointments and are typically accessible between visits by phone or online patient portal/email. Given the great community support we have, we may be adding a PA (physician assistant) or NP (nurse practitioner) to assist me with the increased demand. We have a secure portal to communicate with patient and can allow blood test results to be view-able. We have teamed up with ZocDoc to facilitate making appointments via online or smartphone app - easy scheduling is just one way we hope we can keep making things better!
If you have not had the pleasure of meeting our clinic's physician, I am pleased to introduce you to Robert L. Duhaney, M.D. He is a hard-working, warm, thoughtful board-certified internist with admitting privileges at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas, Plano, and the Medical City Plano. Over the last 8 years, he has formed many great relationships with specialists in the area where he and his new team can help to facilitate access to the best in care coordination.
Whether you are healthy or chronically ill, have an acute problem or a complex case, Dr. Duhaney and our team are proud to offer comprehensive health care for patients ages 16 and older. He has special interests in nutrition, weight management, seasonal allergies, diabetes, cardiovascular care, and general preventative medicine. He has partnered with his pulmonary colleagues to provide pulmonary function tests, and referral for sleep studies.
Dr. Duhaney completed his undergraduate degree at the University of Florida (UF) in 1999, followed by a two-year research-based master's program in food science and human nutrition at UF. He graduated from Drexel University College of Medicine in Philadelphia in 2005 and completed his rigorous internal medicine residency training at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center in Baltimore.
Thinking back, he says it has been quite a journey for him since stepping into practice after graduating from his residency in 2008. To start his career, Dr. Duhaney accepted a wonderful position with two highly-skilled internists affiliated with Texas Health Resources (THR) and made the move to the Lake Highlands area of Dallas.
As he and his wife Kelli continued to grow their family (they have 2 sons and 1 daughter), they moved again to North Dallas to be closer to friends they had made at the vibrant church they started to call home, Watermark Community Church.
In 2013, a THR clinic in Addison was in need of a primary care physician to continue the tradition of caring for patients in the area started by the founding family physician many years prior and Dr. Duhaney was honored to accept that next challenge. He grew the clinic into a Medicare certified Patient Centered Medical Home with the help of his support staff. His office was annually nominated as one of the best primary care clinics in Addison.
In addition to his usual clinic duties, Dr. Duhaney started volunteering at Questcare's charity clinic (which is partnered with Watermark) several years ago, providing medical care to the underserved. Then by March 2016, he graciously accepted his newest opportunity to work with us at Questcare Medical Clinic in Plano (QCP) and started with us in early July 2016. Our office space was totally redesigned, is accepting many of the same insurances as he did before, and plans to be one of the best primary care clinics in Plano. It's part of out motto of making things better.
Dr. Duhaney and the staff feel that the doctor-patient relationship is best viewed as a respectful partnership which includes compassionate care, excellent diagnostic skills and a great office experience. He continues to build on his knowledge and experience and enjoys the relationships he builds with his patients over time. His patients describe him as a great listener and a true partner in their care. Since he feels that medicine is a calling for him, he sees himself as a helper in the overall healing process acknowledging God's hand as the ultimate healer.
We are welcoming new and existing patients to our beautiful new clinic. Feel free to call us or book appointments online and we'll see you in Plano! We welcome your feedback on your experience as well. Visit our Questcare Medical Clinic webpage for more information.
