Always, very good careUofU Patient September 05, 2016
Dr Tuteja is a delight. Great personality. I wish he were my GP.UofU Patient September 03, 2016
This my was first visit with Dr. Tuteja. When he first sat down, he spent about five minutes talking about things I didn't understand and referring to medications I wasn't taking. Turns out he had me confused with a completely different patient. Then he rifled through the copious medical records I'd brought, and quickly flipped through the pages and gave them back to me. I feel as though Dr. Tuteja was distracted and didn't take enough time to find out what all of my concerns were, and how my medical condition(s) affect me and negatively impact my life. We didn't get a chance to address my stomach issues, and for me to ask him whether or not I should continue taking Prilosec, etc. He did order an x-ray, but I think he was so rushed and distracted that he didn't take enough time to go over my medical history. However, I've been assured that Dr. Tuteja is an expert in his field and that is why I am willing to keep a follow-up appointment with him.UofU Patient July 29, 2016
I felt like at times the doctor wasn't listening to me or ignoring what I said. I have been very sick for four months and he said it would "go away" in a few months. I hoped to learn what I could do now to manage the nausea, pain and constipation.UofU Patient May 15, 2016
These GI problems have been with me for 5 years, following a round of Doxycycline, without relief from any of the medications prescribed by others. Now, each round of antibiotics sets off these problems for weeks as well as impacts other medications that I take. I need Dr. Tuteja's assistance to stop the problems so I can get on with my life.UofU Patient May 10, 2016
The best!UofU Patient April 02, 2016
The care provider was excellent.UofU Patient March 31, 2016
He listened to my concerns and provided suggestions to get the situation under control. My prescription insurance company denied payment because there are OTC probiotics available. I have tried OTC pills for several years without success. I paid $48.00 for his prescription and it has started to work. Yeah! Thank you Dr. TutejaUofU Patient February 09, 2016
One of the best doctors I have ever seen. Took lots of time with me and asked many, pertinent questions to better understand my problems. I felt fully understood. I feel I am in excellent care.UofU Patient August 20, 2015
I was very impressed from beginning to end of the procedure.UofU Patient August 20, 2015
the nurses were very professional and kind. I was very impressed with them and felt at ease. Doctor and staff introduced themselves and answered all of my questions. I knew I was in good hands.UofU Patient August 20, 2015
overall good experienceUofU Patient November 13, 2014
Good.UofU Patient October 31, 2014
Only bad because of the long wait. Good experience with the doctor.UofU Patient July 26, 2014
I wouldn't recommend this care provider because it is too hard to schedule an appointment.UofU Patient March 17, 2014
Very good experience. I can't say enough good!UofU Patient November 29, 2013
The doctor was a delightful man. I felt very comfortable during his exam and questioning. I have full confidence in him.UofU Patient June 24, 2013
Felt like he wasn't interested in my problems with incontinence. I don't understand Biofeed Back. And having to be potty trained... I even have to bear down to empty my bladder.UofU Patient May 20, 2013
Vague and unsure what the diagnosis is.UofU Patient April 02, 2013
He did not help me, gave pills that costed 600.00 and 220.00 that should NO differents. I don't feel he listened to what I was saying.UofU Patient February 21, 2013
I felt sorry for the doctor. He didn't have the time allotted to really help with my complicated problem. He did his best under the circumstances.UofU Patient February 05, 2013
Dr Tuteja seemed concerned and took his time with me trying to give excellent care in figuring out my problem.UofU Patient January 14, 2013
goodUofU Patient July 02, 2012
Didn't listen to my concerns, didn't give me any options for treatment that I would be able to implement, and didn't explain the results of any of my tests and what they mean.UofU Patient March 21, 2012
I've never felt so safeUofU Patient January 25, 2012
He said he couldn't help me with my problem.UofU Patient January 25, 2012
The doctor was very enthusiastic about his specialty.UofU Patient January 11, 2012
Dr. Tuteja was rude, and barely listened to a word I said. I had to explain my health issue to him multiple times; he repeatedly asked questions about it that contradicted what I'd JUST told him. It would be an understatement to say that i was miserable throughout the entire appointment.UofU Patient January 04, 2012
Very good and thorough with information.
