March 17, 2014

Very good experience. I can't say enough good!

November 29, 2013

The doctor was a delightful man. I felt very comfortable during his exam and questioning. I have full confidence in him.

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.

May 20, 2013

Vague and unsure what the diagnosis is.

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.

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.

February 05, 2013

Dr Tuteja seemed concerned and took his time with me trying to give excellent care in figuring out my problem.

January 14, 2013

good

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.

March 21, 2012

I've never felt so safe

January 25, 2012

The doctor was very enthusiastic about his specialty.

January 25, 2012

He said he couldn't help me with my problem.

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.

January 04, 2012

Very good and thorough with information.
