I’ve said a few times ‘if I won the lottery…’ well I finally did!…it’s the night that I was admitted to the emergency department and met Dr Duma. It’s times like those when the unknown could mean a variety of outcomes, Dr. Duma was so reassuring, no sugar coating, but his wealth of knowledge just made the unknowns understandable. He immediately became my doctor for my condition, and every step of the way he explained all I needed to know to get me through surgeries and recovery. Every time while getting tests or with other related doctors, nurses, MRI techs, when I said Dr Duma is treating me, not once did ANY of them say they hadn’t heard of him but in fact more reassuring approval. He’s virtually a celebrity in his field. However, the biggest thumbs up came from my mom, who obviously was distraught, researched Dr. Duma and was so relieved that she finally slept nights without worry.
Important for all patients and family, there are no guarantees when it comes to the conditions Dr Duma treats, he made everything very clear and realistic and I’m fortunate that I am well on the mend, but there is only so much Dr Duma has control of the rest is in God’s hands.
I can tell he really enjoys his work and understanding what’s next in treatment possibilities, how to constantly stay current on patient care and treatment, he is also involved w cutting edge research and contributing to overall patient care globally.
Keep in mind, as phenomenal as Dr Duma is, he has a support team that is as exceptional.. From his PA, Zoe, interns, to front office team, Amber and Carol. They go above and beyond every time! I actually like going to my appts as the team is that awesome.
