Why did you go into OB/GYN?
Like many medical students, the miracle of birth had a profound impact on me. Obstetrics-Gynecology offers a wide range of bases upon which to serve. While it is a surgical specialty, it offers many more, and lengthier opportunities for one-on-one interaction with patients than do the bulk of surgical specialties, given its office-setting emphasis. The aspect of physician-as-educator appeals to me, given the concentration of teachers my family encompasses.
Helping the young patient through what frequently represents her first exposure to inpatient care is particularly rewarding. The multitude of different procedures we perform as well as the varied diagnoses for which patients seek evaluation and treatment keep the specialty appealing, even after decades of service.
Doctor Duncan is a lifelong Kentuckian, claiming to be the first physician born at Central Baptist Hospital to have either trained or practiced there. He is a “UK Lifer” having spent “12 short years” on the UK campus, divided equally among undergrad, Medical School and OB-GYN residency. After 23 years of practice, he continues to take the most pleasure from the varied aspects of Obstetrics and Gynecology, in both operative and outpatient settings. His particular interest is in health maintenance and perimenopausal care.
