    melissaToday was my surgery day, and I couldn't be happier with my experience and the quality care I received. Thank you, Dr. Durkin and your amazing team. You've truly changed my life and made a dream of mine come true!

  • Suzi Millwater,

    suzivbWhere do I begin? I have been in and out of Dr. Durkins office a lot in the last few months due to being diagnosed w/early stages of Breast Cancer. I had a bilateral mastectomy in December and Dr. Durkin has been taking care of my reconstruction. Him and his staff have taken such great care of me and have gone above and beyond to show me that they care and they want the best results for me to have. The care and compassion I get from him and the staff has been simply amazing. It has been both an emotionally and physically hard process to go through as I am only 35 years old. Never Thought I would have breast cancer at this age let alone a mastectomy. Anyways, I do not think I would be where I am today without the works of a phenomenal Doctor. Having him and his staff in my life has made my recovery a lot easier. They have listened to me sob and cry because I was just so scared of everything that i was going through but THEY all listened and reassured me that i would be ok. I am blessed to be in his care and I cannot be more grateful to have found such a wonderful Doctor here in Vero Beach. His office is beautifully decorated and you are Always welcomed with a nice smile from the receptionist. He has a Great sense of humor that makes you feel more at ease, he has a wonderful bedside manner and he is a very talented surgeon that does amazing work and wants to get the best results for every one of his patients. I would recommend him to ANYONE! Thank you Dr. Durkin and the staff at Ocean Drive Plastic Surgery for coming into my life and making my difficult time alot easier..you are a godsend!

  • Jodi Gossett-Smith,

    jodivbI have to share my amazing experience at Dr Durkin's office. I am so thrilled with the results of the "enhancement" Dr Durkin gave me. He is so humbly talented and made me feel comfortable with the procedure. An expert eye!! Thank you so much!

  • Shannon Keefe,

    shannonvbI had a HORRIBLE scar on my back that, as I asked dermatologists to help fix, got progressively worse. Dr. Durkin not only took incredible care in giving me a painless procedure, the entire experience was so easy and enjoyable! The facilities are homey and top notch, and the people are so friendly. They genuinely care about you walking out happy. My scar now is pencil thin and wearing a tank top can totally happen without someone asking me if I got stabbed! Thank you so much, I'm recommending you to everyone!

  • Candace Amato,
