About Dr. Duran

My first visit to Georgia was to Savannah in 2000 when I was on active duty in the Colombian Navy. I was the Chief Medical Officer on board the Flagship "Gloria." My experiences as a certified military diver sparked my interest in Hyperbaric Medicine. Over the past years, I continued to see the tremendous impact that Hyperbarics and Wound Care can bring to a person's quality of life.

Philosophy

The field of medicine is truly an art. It requires an ability to not only look at the signs that patients have but also the patient’s needs, temperament and what is most beneficial to them at that time.
