I'm lucky to have Dr. Dunkin as my doctor

He wants me to keep track of my blood pressure readings for 3 week and if not normal call him. If everyone listened to me *Dr. Duncan would not have enough time.

Dr Duncan. My relationship goes back at least 10 years. He helped me thru many stages of rhythm disorders and eventually the many stages of heat failure. He prepared me for a heart transplant which I received on July 19th 2019. He is an excellent communicator. He has not only compassion for the patient but the family involved. Dr Duncan has the right stuff

This was my first visit with Dr. Duncan, and it was truly a 5 Star experience. From my arrival at the office to my departure I was treated courteously and efficiently by the staff. Dr. Duncan listened to my concerns and took the time to explain and illustrate possible causes. He was caring, informative and comforting.

There are few experiences that one can rely on to be completely comfortable with and pleased with. My appointments with Dr. Duncan are consistently above my expectations! I am always treated like I’m the only patient there. It starts when you walk into the office with the receptionist. She was kind and welcoming as she was refreshing my insurance information. The MA was incredible. We talked about lots of aspects of family and life as she completed my EKG etc.. very respectful and I could tell that she enjoyed her job with this group. Now….Dr. Duncan…he is the kindest physician I have ever known! He is a remarkable physician that puts the emphasis on the humanistic importance of health care! Dr. Duncan never lets me leave the office without all my questions answered and a healthcare plan until my next appointment. This group is exemplary!!!

My visit to Dr. Duncan’s office was a pleasant experience. The staff greeted me upon entering and registered my visit for that day. I was on time and my wait was minimal. My vitals were taken and was administered a routine EKG. Moments later Dr.Duncan entered the examination room and asked me how I was doing. We exchanged information to one another about my treatment plan and I was told that test results looked excellent. I won’t have to return for another follow-up for another two years! Dr. Duncan and his professional staff were courteous and respectful as always. I would highly recommend his practice should the occasion arise.

Knowledge and takes all the time to answer all of your questions. Explains everything.

5 out of 5 stars

Dr Duncan and his staff are hands one of the best medical offices around. They are very professional, knowledgeable and helpful. Dr Duncan is, in my opinion, one of the best Cardiologists a patient could possibly ask for. I've also had the pleasure of working with him many years ago. As pleasant now as he was way back then and very accommodating to a patient's needs.

Can’t say enough positive things about Dr. Duncan. Came to him in 2014 following a stroke. Dr. Duncan set me on a course of successfully managing my cardio health while monitoring my yearly progress through appointments and testing. Dr. Duncan’s calm, easy, efficient, professional style while always being informative and effective in his treatment is what anyone would want in a physician. Always available to respond on patient portal. Our appointments are always a good conversation. If you need a cardiologist, I would highly recommend Dr. Duncan!
