Biography
Dr. Hyrum Durtschi chose to become a family physician because it allows him to interact with everyone from newborn babies to grandparents and to address a variety of medical concerns. He feels privileged to have this opportunity, and enjoys helping his patients better understand and treat their illnesses.

One of his primary goals is to provide his patients with the tools they need to take control of their health. "
I believe strongly that, with positive lifestyle choices, the body is often able to maintain good health without unnecessary intervention," he says.

After earning his medical degree from Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine in Missouri, he completed his internship and residency at Madigan Army Medical Center in Tacoma, Wash.

Dr. Durtschi grew up in the Pacific Northwest. After traveling around the world and working on two other continents, he is excited to call Oregon his home once again. He enjoys spending time with his family outdoors, rain or shine.

Overall, Dr. Durtchi is a good doctor and has always spent time talking with me about my concerns. One thing that concerns me is that I have a history of cervical cancer and yet because my pap is normal, they now want to wait another 5 years before checking. I think having a pap every 2 years is key and not 5 years.

[...] I am very fortunate to have the doctor that I have. He has referred me to specialist that are truly good, kind, caring people. One in particular who reads all reports and gives me notes on what to follow up on. I think every provider should have someone on their staff who is able to decipher all the records from the specialist and to help patients stay on track. I am very blessed to have my doctor. His staff are very efficient and have never let me down when things are tough. I would highly recommend my doctor to my friends and family.

i like Dr. Durtschi and have established a relationship md/patient and I feel comfortable talking with him and bringing up concerns. Although at one point during the summer, when I was having a hard time breathing, I told him I had asthma and he stated that he didn't think I did. It was found that I did, in did, have asthma and that it was out of control.

My original appointment was cancelled due to a power outage so that was aggravating but then when I get to my visit I felt a little rushed and I forgot to remind him about a refill. Although that seems like something he should ask me. Anyway, just seems like he was a little rushed and now I have to call the pharmacy and wait on the office to give me the refill on something I take regularly as preventative med.

On a medication renewal in August (med I have taken for 10+ years) the person on the phone insisted I have an appointment or they would not renew the medication [...] I was in the middle of a heavy work schedule and some much needed out of town vacation. It was only after I asked if I had to cancel my vacation plans to come in so I could get my medication renewed that they said I could delay it like 3 weeks to early September. (I had already seen the endicrinologist about a month earlier with good results) Excuse me but I am the patient paying for the care and not some child to be ordered around.

[...] When I call with an injury or illness and am told (every time) there are no providers who can see me and I will have to go to urgent care, it certainly make me contemplate whether it is in my best interest to continue my care with this clinic.

I was diagnosed with a-fib by a nurse who took my ekg. Dr. sent my ekg to a cardiologist who said that I did not have a-fib. Dr called me right away to alay my fears. That really made my day. Nice to have him thinking about me.
