Staff and Dr. are great, staff is very friendly and informative. Answered all my questions without hesitation. It was my first visit but felt like my 20th : ) will highly recommend.
All the of staff were amazing and thorough. The doctor was in and out. But he was really nice but every single one of the staff were awesome
The doctor's wife was so great ., about the secretary was nice., we liked there., but dr. Duel wasn't that we thought....
Although all staff was kind and polite, especially Dr. Duel, I will not go back or recommend his office for treatment. His equipment was very dated and he doesn't perform simple ultrasounds (which most OBGYN's do). One of his assistants saw me nursing my daughter and told me that I shouldn't nurse during pregnancy. I had previously researched tandem nursing and learned that it was safe so I asked her why and she told me that it's not good. I asked her how, and she told me to ask the doctor. She had told Dr. Duel and he also advised me to stop nursing. When I asked what it affects, he simply replied that I am feeding 2 babies so they are taking nutrients from me. He did not offer any medical data supporting this claim or offer any literature about it. Of course I went home and did more extensive research on the subject and found nothing confirming his claim. Dr. Duel may be misinformed and would very much benefit from a refresher course in his field to avoid providing patients with misinformation. He also complained about Medi-Cal running out of funding because they cover immigrants (although nearly every other patient in the waiting room were immigrants). While that may have truth to it, it makes him look hypocritical having a practice in a Hispanic neighborhood and accepting Medi-Cal if he feels that way.
His staff is amazing. The nurses and the front desk. They're so friendly and helpful. The doctor was very quick and gentle. Has a good sense of humor.
Very knowledgable made me feel very comfortable
Waiting time was about 10 minutes not that bad. Doctor was alright not very patient. However, the staff was amazingly friendly. They were super nice. Gricelda to be specific, was very nice and showed how much she cares for patients.
Staff and Doctor were great. I just moved to California from Atlanta Georgia where the emphasize is always pleasing your patients with excellent customer service, professionalism and the ability to give whole care to the member. I have visited two physician in the California area and they were not good at all. But Dr. Duel office and staff made me feel as though I was still in Atlanta getting excellent services. I will recommend and use them again.
