Dr. Dupree has this wonderful balance of both clear medical expertise and instantly connecting on a personable level. She listened intently to my questions and concerns, and provided options for treatment and/or recommendations for thefuture in a way that I could easily understand without feeling patronized. She was an absolute delight to meet and I ended up recommending her to two friends the same day as my first appointment.

As a. fellow female Gulf Wsr Veteran health care veteran, i was enthusiastic about seeing this clinician, as we are a rare breed!. And i am ususlly quite impressed with militarty physicians, but i was dissapointed in her clinical assessmentskills as they were too subjectuve.. Usually, a provider "investigates" a patient's chief complaint via many different approaches, yet that did not happen, and this clinician refused to look at pictutes or videos thst veriied my claims, instead she allowed her bias of "not seeing thst before" preclude her from investigating further. However, her minor surgical procedural skills are stellar, and her suture placement is quite impressive.
