Ratings for Dr. George Duft
Well we picked him because of his add on tv, cannot judge on his laser techniques because we did not need it. My wife needed 2 cysts removed from a toe. She would have to stay home off work for 6 weeks, well guess what not 6 weeks BUT 5 PAINFUL MONTHS , he told her that things whent well and and you'll like to see her two more times over a period of a month he did such a good job that he only needed to see her at least 15 times. Yes no lies, 15 times to the point of telling my wife that the problems had nothing to do with the surgery and it was not his problem. My wife was off work for 5 MONTHS instead of 6 weeks. The stiches stayed for a month according to our highly respected doctor. ..it was not necessary for doctor Duff to cut all the nerves in her foot. Now she needs special insoles made,there goes another $500.00 on top of his surgery fee of $900.00. We will never recommend Dr Duff. I'm sorry but to see my wife suffer like this for 5 months over what was to a simple operation according to Dr Duff seems like he did it only for the money and did not care an ioda about the well being of his patients.
I have had neuroma surgeries and bunionectomy procedures on my feet. I am very happy with all the results and have complete confidence in Dr. Duft. I would definitely recommend him for anyone with neuroma or bunion issues. Staff is friendly and caring!
I believe Dr. Duft could be a good podiatrist if he stopped talking long enough to listen to the patients descriptions of their problems. Sadly, his arrogance is the deciding factor in his treatment offerings and only money making options for treatment are discussed. Indeed the diagnoses are often incorrect and I'm not sure if this is intentional so he can suggest expensive treatments or if he actually believes he knows the answer without further examination. When your opinion of yourself and your confidence exceed your skill and usefulness, medical practice is a bad choice of professions. Knowledge is only useful when applied properly.
After seeing a advertisement for Dr. Dufts pinpointe laser therapy on the front page of the Province newspaper, claiming to cure toenail fungus, I decided to make a appointment. I had a consultation with Dr Duft and was told I was a perfect candidate for the treatment and His success rate was above 85% and the cost would be $1000.00. After suffering with toenail fungus for over 30 years and trying prescribed oral medications which did work (with side effects) short term, I decided to go for the laser therapy. I had the treatment, which took all of 20 Minutes and 4 checkup visits in the next four months, there was no noticeable change in my nails so far. Dr. Duft decided another treatment would be done at no cost, after another 4 checkup visits in four months, still no change. At this point Dr. Duft offered to do another treatment for $400.00, I told Him I would think about it and got out of His office as fast as I could. I look back on my experience and feel like I was totally ripped off and this laser therapy is nothing but a scam. I followed all the doctors instructions following the treatments and even bought the SteriShoe sanitizer He sells. I would definitely not recommend this doctor.
He is the rudest professional I have ever dealt with. Those who say he's funny and caring have obviously never said anything he didn't like. He does not like to be questioned or have anything negative said about him. Try telling him you had to wait too long in his office!!! There appears to be a huge turnover of staff and no wonder. Dr. Kearl in Chilliwack, on the other hand, is the kind of person you feel confident dealing with.
