Patient Ratings and Comments
About Our Survey

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. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. 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. These comments are the views and opinions of patients and are not endorsed by or necessarily reflect the views of Providence.

We have had some very bad doctors in our 45 years of marriage. We are glad we found this practice and Dr Durtschi. He is one of the best doctors we have ever had. Dr [...] who used to be our Dr runs him a close 2nd. Dr D cares about us and our problems and always takes time to listen and always makes sure we understand everything he says. He is the greatest and I always tell friends who are new to the area to look into having him as their Dr because I am convinced that others will find him as good as a Dr as we do. The office staff are also always kind and considerate and really go out of their way to make you feel comfortable.

I like Providence, and Dr. Durtschi is great. What I didn't appreciate, however, where the questions about my current sexual activity as part of the routine screening by the medical assistant. She also seemed surprised that I would be offended by this. I wasn't there for anything related to sexual health, so it had no relevance, and was offensive, inappropriate, and intrusive.

He went over all meds in depth, which was great--it was good to touch base and see if any changes needed to be made. He also gave me some good advice regarding reproductive health, so he is working in tandem w/ my gynecologist. And, bonus points, he remembered medical difficulties we'd discussed in the past--I'm old school and like to have ongoing relationships w/ my providers. :)

Dr Durtschi always listens to me before he starts talking. He is a very caring doctor. Makes sure I understand his diagnosis and directions before I leave his office. I would rank him as one of the best physicians I have ever been treated by.

Dr Duretschi is the best. He always remembers my health history whenever I see him. He always listens to my concerns and questions. He always answers my questions completely and in a way I can understand. I always recommend him to my friends because I have never had a better doctor in my 64 years of life.

Dr. Durtschi has been very good to and for me. I feel he truly cares about my health. He listens and understands what I discuses with him. If he doesn't know the answer my question(s), he will look for it and not ignore the question or make up an answer. I honestly can't think of anything negative about Dr. Durtschi as my care provider. I have never like "going to the doctor", DR. Durtshi makes it easier because he cares.

The patients concerns are of little to no importance to anyone at the office. Everybody at this office seems to prefer passing THEIR responsibilities on to other providers.

I hope to build a long patient-doctor relationship with him, that I can grow old with him. I've had several doctors last year that decided to move on. I'm used to the old idea of the Family Doctor, which I haven't seen in years. I hope he'll want to stay awhile.
