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.

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.

May 10, 2016

The best!

April 02, 2016

The care provider was excellent.

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. Tuteja

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.

August 20, 2015

I was very impressed from beginning to end of the procedure.

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.

August 20, 2015

overall good experience

November 13, 2014

Good.

October 31, 2014

Only bad because of the long wait. Good experience with the doctor.

July 26, 2014

I wouldn't recommend this care provider because it is too hard to schedule an appointment.

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.
