"Dr. Duncan was very pleasant and professional. My condition was diagnosed, explained to me in terms I could understand, and treatment options were explained, including what results I could expect and the time frame for those results. After choosing the surgical option, I experienced the expected results within that timeframe. If I have future spinal problems I will definitely choose Dr. Duncan for treatment." – Esther W.
