He is affiliated with Crestwood Hospital, the Surgery Center of Huntsville, Huntsville Hospital, and the Madison Surgery Center. Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, and an active member of the American Board of Plastic Surgery, Dr. Durst believes that cosmetic surgery should be a positive, safe, and enhancing experience for the patient.

Patients appreciate the special attention they receive during their one-on-one consultation, as he provides a thorough explanation of surgical procedures, risks, and recovery.
