Office staff was rude. Consistently failed to call me back, or call when they said they were going to. The dr failed to show up to an appointment that I rearrange do my work schedule to be at. I was lied to about the reason s insurance rejected my surgery. Horrible experience. I nevertheless met dr Duncan, but the office staff is a mess and incredibly rude.

in Cumming, GA |
Incompetent at best, dishonest at worst! 1. It took WEEKS of phone calls made by myself and the coordinator at the sleep lab to get the referral faxed for my sleep study 2. One of their employees lost the paperwork for my psych eval 3. No word or progress for 2 months from Peachtree, no returned calls or emails 4. Gave up on Peachtree and found a new Dr. took ANOTHER 2 MONTHS to get my records and this only happened AFTER filing a complaint w/ medical board.
in Marietta, GA |
I haven't even been scheduled for my surgery yet but am pretty frustrated. Consult in January of 2016 then changed insurance. Resumed visits in August 2016 with new insurance. I've been told completely different things on what my insurance company requires. First it was 6 months of weight loss visits and after my 2nd visit, I was told that I didn't need them.My roadmap was never updated. No one can find my old labs on file (visible in patient portal) and my "advocate" doesn't respond to contact

Well I have not seen him yet , I scheduled my first appointment and it was with the Nurse Practitioner. Its now 9 months and I have made little to no progress with having my procedure done. I had to keep calling to get updates on paper work and just found yesterday that I still need 3 more things done before i can even get my date for the procedure. I called today and the phone lines are down... I have a job where I am out of town and makes it difficult to having to keep calling.
Yvette, I am so sorry that you have been having difficulty. We were in a transition period with our phones to where we had a lot of calls dropped and not able to receive calls. That problem is fixed now. Please reach out to our office at 404-881-8020. Megan is the manager for your bariatric process. She will be able to assist you and help with the process. Looking to hearing from you soon.

Dr. T absolutely saved my life--maybe literally . I was borderline diabetic; had very sore knees and ankles; and various other weight related illnesses. Thanks to Dr. T, I lost 120 lbs. over a couple of years and have been able to keep it off for 7 years. Now I am looking for someone to do a full tummy tuck. Gastric Bypass is scary to think about but it was the best money I have ever spent. I would definitely recommend Dr. T Duncan to anyone.
Barbara, We are so very happy that you have had great success. I can give you several recommendations for your tummy tuck if you would like to reach out to me. Dr. Marl Crispin as well as Dr. Okoro are two well respected plastic surgeons. Debbie

Dr. Duncan literally saved my life. I had been having thyroid problems and when my ENT and I started talking about surgery, I asked if he operated using lapriscopally and he said know and I wanted Lapriscopally done. He recommended Dr. Titus Duncan. Dr. DUNCAN SENT ME FOR A RADIOACTIVE TEST ON MY thyroid and it turned out it SHOWED I HAD 2 TUMOURS. HE OPERATED AND TOOK MY right Thyroid out and one Parathyroid and Thank God is was benign. It's back 5 years later and hewill perform my surgery.

I got a call from the clinic and they told me my appointment was June 6, 2016. Immediately I put it into my phone as a reminder. June 6 comes, today, the day I'm posting and I walked up that hill. Yes walked! To what I think could of been an amazing, comforting and professional experience. I tell them my appointment and they tell me it is on June 8th at 1pm. Which is a lie. Someone switched my appointment for another date because I also wrote it down on an envelope with the directions. Hate it!
Simmone, I want to apologize for your experience with the practice on June 6th. We have taken measures into place so that this doesn't happen again. Also, to let you know we are opening a second location at Southern Regional Medical Center for patient convenience and there is no hill to climb. You can literally be at the door. Please let me know if there is anything I can do for you in the future. Also, our Southern Regional location has elevators. Debbie

I can in on the 3rd of May for an exam to set up for surgery to get a lap band removed that had slipped. I had been in the ER. I was told the scheduler would get back to me in 5-7 days. I had called 7 days later with no luck. I have been caller over and over again. She will not return my calls. It is pretty bad. I do not have ins. I am self pay and do have the money. Now it is 23 days later am out the money I paid up from for the consultation and have to find another doctors office.
Diane, Please give me a call so I can see what happened with our practice. I am so sorry that you had a bad experience. Always know that you can reach out to a manager for further assistance. Please call me at 404-881-8020 and I will be able to assist you. Debbie

I would recommend Dr. Duncan because of the level of care that I received when going into his office. From the very first day on the phone while speaking with his staff to the surgical procedure that I received, his staff was nothing but caring and very professional.
