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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
