Born and raised in Henderson, Dr. Duran knew from an early age that he not only wanted to raise a family in rural East Texas, but he also wanted to practice in the field of medicine with an emphasis on trauma. However, the day he stepped through the doors of North Caddo Medical Center in Vivian, Louisiana, his mindset changed, he knew it was his calling to practice rural family medicine. “I knew this was what the Lord had planned for me to do. From the moment I walked in the door, I knew this was how the art and science of medicine should be practiced. I wanted to be trained by the best to perform family medicine, the traditional way.”
