Ratings for Dr. Melissa A. Duxbury
I came to Dr. Duxbury in 2005 after struggling to find a diagnosis for an ongoing problem. I can not say enough positive things about Melissa. She has been professional, dedicated, and a fantastic listener. She is proactive and will dedicate her time to you.
Dr. Duxbury Coodinates well with my other Drs., uncovered very treatable condition that all others failed to even check and has never been wrong - even when I had my doubts. Rcommend her and her associates highly... Having youngest son transfer to her partner from his pediatrician of 17 years...enough said!?!
dr. Duxbury is nice and easy to talk to, but not great for ongoing problems, feel like she gives up on you if you have ongoing problems that are hard to diagnos and not great with heading up your care like a Primary should, with referrals etc. Also it is extremely hard to get in to see her without a 4-6 week wait, you have to see nurse practioner or a fill in Dr. and she doesn't really give follow up appts, except for several months out. Only would recommend her if you don't have anything too complicated going on, the staff is great there though.
I love Dr. Duxbury, but anytime I get sick on short notice I have a very hard time getting into see any doctor in the practice, and sometimes I have an extremely hard time getting through on the phone. Last year, I had to see a doctor out of her practice but in the same network because she was so busy. I have called the office during office hours and gotten nothing but a busy signal, and had to call back over 30 times to get through to the office - around 8 AM(!) - only to be told the dr was already booked for the day, and it would be two more days until I could get in to see her; in the mean time I had an extremely painful infection and couldn't afford to spend $150 on an ER visit.
