“I knew I wanted to help people in need and medicine allows me to do that.”
The daughter of a math professor and an elementary school teacher, Dr. Edlira Duro has always loved interacting with people and found that medicine was the perfect career for her. “I knew I wanted to help people in need and being a physician allows me to do that.”
Dr. Duro formerly worked as an internist in primary care. Now she works in Preoperative Admission Testing at the Worcester Medical Center. Dr. Duro does extensive pre-surgical exams and lets patients know what to expect when they undergo an operation or procedure. She also follows up each patient with lab work, tests and other details that are important for physicians. “We take care of everything needed for surgery,” she explains. “All Reliant Medical Group surgeons send their patients to us before their surgery. Even physicians outside of Reliant Medical Group send their patients here – to make sure they are ready for surgery and avoid complications.”
Patients visit with Dr. Duro about a month before their surgery to undergo their exam. Most patients also meet with the department’s nurse educator before surgery. “Patients learn what to do before the surgery, what to expect during the surgery, as well as how long it will take to recover. Patients usually spend about two hours here with us on their visit.”
Dr. Duro truly enjoys practicing medicine at Reliant Medical Group. “There is great support here – a lot of teamwork. Whenever I need something I just pick up the phone. I also like the new electronic health record we are using here. It makes it very easy to input and retrieve detailed information on each patient.”
During her spare time, Dr. Duro enjoys oil painting and for the last few years has taken classes at the Worcester Art Museum. She also enjoys playing volleyball and spending as much time as possible with her family. Dr. Duro also likes to travel and says she would like to visit every country in the world someday.
