Richard Duff, M.D. F.A.C.O.G

I am blessed to say I love my vocation today even more than the day I made the commitment to Obstetrics and Gynecology. This discipline affords me the opportunity to care for patients through every stage of their adult lives. It also provides the intellectual challenges of keeping pace with the ever-changing knowledge in the field of Ob-Gyn, genetics, medical/surgical diseases of pregnancy and the treatment of gynecological conditions.

I have been in private practice for thirty-six years in the Rochester area and estimate that I have delivered thousands of babies throughout my career. Helping mothers bring their babies into the world safely is a privilege and one to which I am dedicated. Many of my patients have been with me for years and in many cases, I now care for their daughters as new obstetrical patients.

I have further committed myself to managing the chronic disease process of obesity. I am a member of the Obesity Medical Association and will shortly be board certified in Obesity Medicine. Throughout my career I have seen women struggle with this issue and it is very rewarding to assist my patients in achieving their weight loss goals.

I have lived in Rochester Hills for over thirty years. I am a father of six, and a dedicated grandfather to eight beautiful grandchildren. My avocation is playing classical piano. My wife and I love traveling, the theatre, the DSO and weekends of sleepovers with my very lively grandchildren.
