Dr Duke was extremely thorough about determining the root of my problem and how to fix it . ( herniated disc and bursitis in my hip ) I saw results very quickly and learned a lot about self care as well . I highly recommend him !

I had deep scars in my achilles after running extensively in high school and college, and wasn't able to run more than 1-2 miles for the last 10 years; running farther resulted in extreme pain. After visits to several other doctors and hours of physical therapy, I had completely lost hope. Dr. Duke and his team completely fixed my injury. I feel like I have a new pair of legs. I'm now back running 30-40 miles a week consistently and planning for future road races. Can't recommend enough!

I had a foot injury that a few doctors were unable to diagnose never mind give a path to a cure. Dr. Duke began my path to being cured and gave me a clear recovery plan which has enabled me to run again without pain. The first appointment was hard to get but after that they make scheduling easy.

I can't say enough positive things about Dr. Duke and everyone at Duke Chiropractic. I began going there about 2.5 years ago with a back injury that sidelined my marathon training (after trying 2 other doctors who only prolonged the injury through misdiagnosis). Dr. Duke is the only one that gave a proper diagnosis and treatment and got me back on the road right away. Since then, I have been going there regularly for any running injury and for maintenance while training. Highly recommend!

For over 19 years, I have been seeing Dr. Duke every five to six weeks to ensure that I can maintain my active life style and minimize injuries. Over the years, I have recommended Dr. Duke to many friends and acquaintances who have thanked me for introducing them to such a knowledgeable and caring individual.

I highly recommend Dr Duke, Dr Duggan, Dr Amico and Dr Gulrajani for any and all sports or rehab related issues and injuries. They are very caring, responsive and knowledgable. I have referred many local athletes to them.

Drs Duke, Amico and Duggan have been key to helping me maintain an active, healthy lifestyle. When I push myself too far, they're the ones who not only help put me back together but give me the tools to take an active role in my recovery and prevent future injury.

I am a devoted runner that logs significant weekly miles and is prone to injury. In my 10 years as a patient, Dr. Duke and his team have never failed to rehab all of my injuries and allow me to return to running as quickly as possible. He is a master at diagnosing issues - far better than any practitioner I have seen over the years. In addition, he knows exactly what strengthening exercises to prescribe to keep strong while not under his care. I also follow his spot-on diet advice while training

Dr. Duke is an amazing Chiropractor. He has helped me through numerous running injuries and is one of the only chiropractors I have found that can adjust my neck in the city. Dr. Duke and his staff take such good care of each person that walks through their door and makes sure that their injuries are treated with great care.

I only recommend Dr Duke and his excellent team of doctors to friends and family for all sport or muscle related injuries. He is the best. He is the only doctor you need.

I've had a wonderful, productive experience with Dr. Duke and his team. They are knowledgeable, thoughtful and professional. Often times a doctor treats a patient like a statistic without truly getting to know and understand them. With Dr. Duke, he truly cares and takes as much time as is necessary to get to know you and to understand your needs and how he can best help you. His practice is a breath of fresh air relative to most of my other doctor visits.

One of the best doctors in the country. I went to see Dr. Duke because I severely sprained my ankle a few months ago. After being treated by another physiotherapist at a different clinic for a month and making no progress, I went to see Dr. Duke. After our first session, my ankle started to feel better and now 6 weeks later, I have zero pain and I'm back to 100%. I highly recommend Dr. Duke if you are an athlete or someone who likes to train like one- he will keep you in top condition.

Thank you Dr Duke for fixing my achilles. For past few years I spend thousands of dollars going to HSS doctors to fix my achilles and you did it in a month! Since my job is fitness and wellness, I need to always feel and be in my best, and o top I am a long distance runner with a love for speed! I never give up, and you helped me and still do to chase my goals!

Dr. Duke in one word...VALUABLE!.. He is truly a 5-Star doctor, a consummate professional..and has an incredible personalized approach. I have been seeing Dr Duke for the past 12 years..and he has more then likely saved me from neck surgery, possibly more then once. My body just performs better in general with the help of this man and when I am in any pain crisis, he is always by my side with clear and concise next steps to a positive outcome.
