Philosophy of Care

I became a family medicine doctor because I enjoy getting to know the entire family. It’s quite an amazing privilege to see life at every stage: Everyone from the newborn baby, to the pregnant mom, to the grandmother with chronic issues. I love being there as my patients go through life and as they achieve important milestones.

Interests

Medical Interests

I’m interested in preventive care for the entire family, from newborns to adolescents and adults. I also provide state-of-the-art treatments for my patients with chronic conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure. And, since it’s a large component of my practice, I focus on all stages of maternal health — before, during, and after the pregnancy.

Personal Interests

Of course, making time for my own family (I have two young sons) is something I strive to do while balancing a busy schedule. And I love being outdoors, hiking when the weather cooperates.

Dr Duffie provides excellent medical care. she takes the time to question and listen to my medical needs and comes up with a plan for my care. I also like the "my chart" feature. I always get prompt replies to questions I have.

I honestly did not like how I was being talked to. I went in for prenatal care and this is my 4th pregnancy. I know what I am doing I know how to manage my life but the amount of disrespect that I feel like I have gotten from Duffie is really questioning if I should look into another provider OR just go to another place if I can not get the respect that I am looking for. I do not like being judged for anything I do and or do not do or say I will not do. I had way better care at [...] than I have had with Duffie.

I am very happy with the care O am receiving. Dr Duffie is a true professional and has convinced me she cares very much about her patients well being. Her nurse is very friendly and caring as well.

It is not any specific provider. It is that we ( all) as a whole no longer get the type of care we used To! Dr.'S no longer are able to make/ do the kind of treatment/care that they used too. Government has the control or may government/insurance Co's.

I was very impressed with the ability to see the doctor the same day.

Bad experience; I have been experiencing symptoms of alopecia since July, when I mentioned the continued hair loss to my physician at my physical, her response was "well your hair looks good", and never even bothered to look at my hair/scalp. Apparently if it looks good form afar, that's all that matters.

I have used the Providence site's Dr. Duffy's email address to send questions several times and have always been very promptly answered. That is an extremely valuable method of communications, and very helpful. Thank you for that service.

every time I get a referral, I have to search on my own and the one that is given to me is not in network with my insurance .This happens every time.

10/12/2016
my provider, Dr Duffy is great. only issue I have is trying to get an appointment in a timely manner. it took 2 months to get into see her, some delay was due to a family emergency that caused me to reschedule but instead of a few days it pushed me back a month. Other attempts to see her for an illness, did not happen due to extensive wait for an appointment
100

10/03/2016
I liked her because she explains everything.

10/02/2016
My only negative experience has been with the after hours answering service. I called with a question and after waiting on hold far longer than I found acceptable, I gave up.

it was great that she asked the opinion of another provider at the clinic since she wasn't quite sure of my symptoms

I was told for this last appointment that I probably wouldn't be able to get an IUD placed the same day, but Dr. Duffie took the time to place it for me which I really appreciated!

09/05/2016
The doctor was very good. The nurse did not seem to want to listen to other concerns I had. I was then sent to quick PT, this person told me I did not qualify because of the issues I was seeing the doctor for. This seemed unorganized to me. If I did not qualify for quick PT due to the medical issues I was there for, why waste my time and staff time to go through this process.

I just don't care for your exam rooms and general demeanor of the place - very cold and impersonal. I feel Dr Duffie really never wants to touch my body - she just doesn't seem very engaged with issues.

I have a hip problem and the provider said she would look into .nothing was done so I'm still in pain.this happened to me before I had a stomach problem that's what I thought you took them three months then they sent me to have a colonoscopy and then the doctor there said let's check in next race for your back and guess what I have back problems not stomach problems three months I went through this.to tell you the truth I wish I could pick my own doctor

Dr. Duffie is kind and patient. She listens and asks relevant questions. She doesn't treat me as if I were ignorant. I appreciate her attention because my former GP spent most of the office visit on the computer without looking at me.

waiting in line while receptionists are on phone is lame. it seems calls for appointments could wait if people are standing in line. 3 receptionists!

Dr. Meghan Duffie is by far the best primary care physician I have had. I had a great experience with her with my pregnancy care. so much in fact I've made her my son's primary care physician as well. she has been nothing but exceptional.

07/05/2016
[...] I was VERY impressed with her calm/professional/personable/easy to follow manner. Glad my wife and I chose to go to "this provider"... We came from Aberdeen, had a Dr. there we loved, but the 130 mile round trips are too much, so we are starting over...my first impressions are that we have started over at the right place and with the right doctor.

Went in on [...] for a cough. Had a chess x-ray done., the office called and said I had pneumonia and my prescription was at [...]. That is all the information I received until I called the office the next day and asked for more information. I'm not happy with the follow through.

Have recommended numerous times and have my son going here. It takes several months in advance to get check up for my son [...]. So I would not recommend this provider because she is too busy.

My doctor has been very helpful in finding alternate medications for me that radically reduce side effects. That has made a substantial difference in my quality of life. She has been non-judgmental and very positive in our discussions.

While the in-facility care is great, it takes far too long to see a doctor. I was told I wouldn't be able set up an appointment with my personal doctor for more than a month, which is absurd. I would have trouble recommending someone on that basis, not on the basis of the actual care, which was all very good.
