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. "

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.
