I took my son to Dr. Duffy on recommendation from our family physician. When we finally got an appt, 2 months later, I was not at all thrilled. I bet we spent 20 min in the waiting rm, another 15-20 min in the room waiting for Duffy, & he only spent 10 min w/ me & my child. Apparently that's all it took for him to make a diagnosis & prescribe my kid meds. When we went back a month later for a follow up visit w/ the same experience. Dr. Duffy asked me how my child was doing on the meds & I stated that he was worse & more angry & had more tantrums/outbursts. I was about to say he wasn't even the same kid. But Duffy interrupted me & just said, "ok. We will up the dosage on this med & add another 1" . WTH?! We were to go in 1 month later, but a horrible blizzard came through the day of my child's appt & every place was closed. I called the office & ended up leaving a message and asked for someone to call me back so his appt could be rescheduled & left my phone number, and yet 3 days later nobody ever got back to me. And yes, the office was open the day after the blizzard. Meanwhile, my son was getting worse on these meds, no better. I ended up slowly decreasing my sons meds w/ my own medical knowledge & guess what, his behaviors got better! I never went back to Duffy's office again & I never will! I will go to great lengths to make sure he's NOT recommended to anyone! He's a non-listening, non-caring, pill pushing idiot! His bio says he went to college in Iowa...well, that would make sense then as to why he's such an idiot as Iowa stands for Idiots Out Wandering Around. Dr. Dippy needs to be investigated by the licensing board for his inept practices & have his license revoked!
