Dr. Duncan Berry is an ophthalmologist who specializes in vitreoretinal diseases and surgery. He earned his bachelor's degree in English from Davidson College. While earning his medical degree from the Medical University of South Carolina, he was selected as an anatomy tutor and graduated as a Presidential Scholar. His internship was at Spartanburg Regional Hospital System and his residency was at the Duke University Eye Center, where he received the K. Alexander Dastghieb Award for exemplary surgical skills and judgment. Upon completion of residency, he remained on faculty at Duke to serve as a clinical instructor and chief resident. He then completed a two year vitreoretinal surgery fellowship at Emory University.
Dr. Berry has published numerous research papers, articles and book chapters, and has presented at national and international scientific meetings such as the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the American Society of Retinal Specialists, the Retina Society and the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology.
In his free time, Dr. Berry enjoys hiking, playing tennis, cooking, and spending time with his wife and two sons.
Dr. Berry sees patients in our Concord (645 Amalia St. NE, Concord, NC), Salisbury (530 Corporate Circle, Salisbury, NC), and University (2325 West Arbors Drive, Suite 201, Charlotte, NC) offices.
