I've already recommended her to my friends. She's really special. Dr. Duze really tried to get to know my husband and me on a personal level before delving into the medical part of the visit. She put me completely at ease and getting to know her was great. I consider myself lucky to now be a patient of hers. She REALLY seems to care and is a very kind person with a great personality. I also felt she took the time to explain things in a really relatable way. My husband and I were very impressed with her and felt lighthearted and happy when we left her infectious, happy presence. She clearly loves what she does and took a lot of time with us.

Duze May just be he best doctor you have. She's thorough, up to date on even obscure diseases/treatments, and best of all, COMPASSIONATE. She truly cares about the patient, instead of treating someone like an abstract puzzle that needs to be solved, she expresses sympathy for what the person is going through and takes the time to listen instead of just talking at you. I wish all my doctors were this exemplary.

I'm 61 years of age. Have had several very good doctors in my life. Dr. Duze is the best Dr. I've ever had, and that's saying something. I am thankful that Dr. Bender referred me to her when he retired. She shows great concern, and unlike many doctors, tends to make you feel you are her only patient. I could not have chosen a better Dr. in terms of quality of care, customer service, and personal concern she shows for me as her patient.
