Additionally, after medical school and dermatology training at Harvard, Dr. Duke spent another year completing a clinical and a research fellowship in skin laser surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital's Wellman Center for Photomedicine in Boston, acquiring specialized training and experience in different types of skin laser surgery from some of the leading experts in the world.
Dr. Duke now specializes in cosmetic and laser dermatology and treatments.

Questions to Ask When Selecting a Skin Care Professional
The doctor you choose really does make a difference! Your treatment outcome depends on many factors -- including the training and experience of the doctor you choose, the treatment that is selected for your individual skin conditions, the technology that is utilized in your treatment, and how the technology is used.
Before choosing your physician, you should always ask these important questions:
1. Who does the initial consultation - just the physician or mostly an assistant?
2. What is the doctor's specific training?
3. What are they board-certified in (dermatology)?
4. What is the doctor's specific training with lasers?
5. Did they complete a 1-year fellowship in lasers (if yes, where), or did they just get training at a weekend course from the sales rep of the laser manufacturer?
6. Has the doctor participated in, and done, any laser research? Were their results published in any peer-reviewed, major medical journals?
7. Have they presented their research at major medical conferences?
8. Do they teach laser surgery to other doctors at teaching hospitals such as Yale or Harvard?
9. Are all lasers conveniently located on-site all day, every day?
The answers to these questions will help you choose the most qualified skin care provider for helping you meet your goals, and select the best treatment for you, based on your unique skin conditions.
