I was not given any pain medications when I left the office. My procedure seemed a bit intense for no pain medication. I was called a couple of days later and something was phoned in to the pharmacy.

January 14, 2017

A very good experience. Dr. Duffy even let me choose the music he was playing. A small thing, but appreciated. The procedure that he performed went very well and I had a high level of confidence in him and still do.

I was told there was a quarter size amount of skin, tissue, cancer that would be removed. I was stunned to discover a 4 inch incision site when the pressure wrap was removed.

I don't mind the long wait for Dr. Duffy because he spends all the time you need until you are taken care of and all your questions fully answered.

November 12, 2012


November 12, 2012

I believe that the aftercare was not intentionally forgotten. We had gotten off topic and it slipped everyone's mind. However, I did call to find out the following day and waited for a return call, with none forthcoming. I had to call back a second time, and at that point after a several hours had passed, I had to get to work, and left home without cleaning the wound properly.

November 12, 2012

Not only was I told about treatment, medications and follow-up, I was given written instruction on the care for each procedure I had done. Very important as I had three different procedures, with different care for each.
