She was very calm yet outgoing with my child and made her feel safe. She showed compassion for child and big brother as well, couldn't be more thankful for such an amazing provider!

Dr. Duffy has always been great with my son. She has been a part of his care since he was a baby. Always makes sure all of my concerns are addressed and questions are answered. Always professional but personable. Couldn't ask for a better provider.
