    How was your appointment with Dr. Duffin?

    Dec 11, 2016
    This was my first appointment with Dr. Duffin. He was very personable and communicated well (both listening and talking). His diagnosis seemed to be right on. He even found and showed me web sites that give more info on my conditions, and printed out the pages for me to take home. By the way, the education listed for him on this website is incomplete. Talking with him, he said he also graduated from USC Medical School in Rheumatology. I checked on that afterwards, and he is right.
