The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score.

Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

I have seen countless specialists, gotten multiple MRIs, seen my previous PCPs and been diagnosed with chronic back pain that cannot be fixed even with surgery. However, Dr. Durtschi refuses to provide adequate pain medication as needed even when at higher than normal pain levels. It is very frustrating.

I would like a call explaining my results

He admitted to knowing nothing about the disease I was diagnosed with by my geneticist, and then went on to try to diagnose me with something else that was already ruled out, saying that the diagnosis I received didn't matter because there's no proven treatment. [...] I didn't need to be told that pain medication would lead to addiction. I didn't ask him for pain medication. I left feeling unheard and hopeless. I won't be returning willingly.

My appointment was to follow up on an unresolved issue I've been dealing with for a few years. It was also the first time I have seen this MD. It would have been a much better experience had there been more time allowed. I felt very rushed and was unable to fully explain myself.

i told the doctor what i needed and he took care of ordering my MRI and getting my prescriptions taken care of within a day of my email. I really appreciate all of the time he spent listening and then taking an extra step to really look at my records and order a blood test for me that he would like to see.

Dr Durtschi always seems to be up to date on my care and what's been going on with me in regards to healthcare outside his office. He is supportive of my decisions and really cares about me both physically and emotionally. I feel he has great empathy for our problems.
