PATIENT TESTIMONIALS

pix-220x200 The words, “Thank you” are not sufficient to express my gratitude to Dr. Duffner. Years of pain in my lower back and both hips have been eliminated, thanks to him. His skills, wisdom and experience in performing the Lumbar laminectomy with transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (L4 L5) on my lower back – and the total hip replacement on both hips have allowed me the mobility of a normal lifestyle. Thank you so much, Dr. Duffner! I would be remiss not to mention and thank his staff. They are friendly, knowledgeable and professional. Their caring attitude makes it obvious as to why they are in the healthcare profession.

Prior to consulting Dr. Duffner I could not sit to drive my car, or walk more than a block, without severe pain down my right leg. The surgery performed by Dr. Duffner straightened out my lower back, and gave me back my mobility. Dr. Duffner’s care was outstanding, the recovery was easy, and now I am totally pain free! Thank you, thank you, Dr. Duffner.

As a patient that has had numerous surgeries, I know what a good surgeon is. Dr. Duffner was the best I’ve ever seen, never too busy to talk about your problems. He rebuilt my lower lumbar, I don’t think I would be walking if it wasn’t for him. I tell everyone about him. We are very lucky to have him in the desert.

I hurt my back in 10/2013 and when it was confirmed that the disc was ruptured and surgery was needed I requested Dr. David Duffner for a few reasons. Mainly because I knew four people personally he had performed surgery on. Three were back surgery and one was knee. The quality of life these people are leading today compared to others that I know who had surgery elsewhere is totally better. Not having to live on strong pain meds and being able to live a productive life is amazing. Dr. Duffner is and was my only choice when it came to surgeons. His qualifications speak for themselves but his patients’ results are walking testimonies to his abilities. I personally would not trust anyone else with what is one of the scariest surgeries a person may have. Thank you doctor because of you I now live an active life again.

I was experiencing extreme pain due to a compressed disc. This was also causing pain down my leg due to the sciatica nerve involved. The pain from both was beyond excruciating. Dr. Duffner operated on my back in March, 2009. I returned to my life two months later. My life, my job, my love of golf ~ all returned to me due to the miraculous gift of Dr. David Duffner. Five years later, I am still going strong and remain eternally grateful for both his compassion and expertise.

Dear Dr. Duffner: On August 12, 2014, I had a hip replacement on my right hip. This letter is to thank you and let you know that I was very pleased with the surgery – no pain and a quick recovery. You did an excellent job! I will highly recommend you to anyone in the future who needs this type of surgery. I was very well informed by the staff of what was going to be done to me. Special thanks to Renee McGaughy, MSN, FNP-C, who looked after me and made me feel comfortable with the operation. Everybody had a compassionate and positive attitude. Sincerely,

Prior to my surgery, I was in tremendous pain every day and getting worse. The day I left the hospital after Dr. Duffner performed my surgery, I was almost pain free for the first time in several years and as the surgical site continues to heal, my pain lessens each day. Dr. Duffner has restored my quality of life.

Dr. Duffner has performed both left knee and left hip replacement surgery on me with very minimum pain and virtually no skin blemishes. Am totally satisfied with results in all respects. With the knee surgery I was actually able to walk out to the car without walking aids of any kind upon leaving recovery.

In six words: I Could Not Be More Pleased. Everything from start to finish, people, places, and actions were all "10's". Had I known before what I know now, I could have avoided several years of pain and discomfort. Dr. Duffner is the best!!

As one if Jehovah’s Witnesses, the refusal of blood is extremely important. (Acts 15:28 & 29) under no circumstance would we accept blood and Dr. Duffner respected my wishes and I felt absolutely no pressure to accept blood in any way. Dr. Duffner worked with me and offered several blood alternatives that my conscience would allow. I spent 6 days in the hospital in Rancho Mirage and now, five months later, I am pain free and very happy with this experience.

David Duffner, MD performed a biceps tendon repair on my left arm and I was amazed by the excellent outcome. Even though I had the need of a graft insert within 7 weeks, I had 75% use of the arm. Best practices in orthopedics can be found with Dr. Duffner.
