Patient Ratings and Comments

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.

Dr.Dutta is not my regular PCP but he was extremely sensitive to my needs and felt like he was genuinely concerned about my wellbeing. I was very confident is his exam and was very knowledgeful. He explained my results to me in great detail. I would be more than happy to see him again!

the provider is fantastic, but there is a staff member at the desk who is always rude...tears me like I'm second class. I don't know her name though...don't care to!

Dr. Dutta showed good appropriate interest and concern in my general health. This is my first visit to Dr Dutta and I expect to retain him as my primary physician. I will need to work with his accent but I feel that it will work out.

Over the last 6 months I have been referred for some additional tests and studies to other Health care providers and had blood tests done. What I most appreciate is the promptness that Dr.Dutta reports the results of those procedures. For blood tests, the results are back to my chart with comments within hours as was the result of my ultrasound on carotid arteries. For the Nuclear Medicine stress test the results were in my chart quickly and almost immediately the phone rang and his Medical Assistant was on the phone to tell me the results were normal. I have friends who wait days and even weeks for the results of tests to come back from their physicians. I so appreciate Dr. Dutta and his promptness in getting results back to me and the peace of mind of not worrying. Great follow through!

I have been referred to a specialist, but I did not talk with my provider about why that is. I can figure it out by using "MyChart" but the staff who called me just read what the Dr. wrote on "MyChart" which I had already done. Seems odd to me, but I guess I have what I need.

12/13/2016
I don't always feel like he is hearing my concerns. he makes a lot of decisions without talking to me about them.

11/30/2016
MD is very concerned but I am reluctant to take medications-I appreciate his assessments but I have a history of frustrating providers. All the same I create my own risk and think this provider is very competent .

The physician was taking over for my former doctor who left the area. Didn't have all records; hadn't looked at all records that were available. Was somewhat dismissive on certain areas of concern. Prescribed a medication incorrectly (re-prescribed a medication that I had adverse reaction to).

10/12/2016
Dr. Dutta referred me to Sacred Heart ER because it was Friday PM and he wanted to rule out a possible life threatening condition. He clearly stated his concern and his orders were ready when I checked.

10/11/2016
I keep coming back for more, otherwise I would change providers. I'm quite satisfied with Dr. Dutta.

10/02/2016
Dr. Dutta is very prompt at releasing results into My Chart. For example: On Friday [...] I had a carotid ultrasound [...] at 10:00 AM. The test was completed at 10:45 AM. I was told my Physician would get back to me with 24-48 hours after the Radiologist dictated the results. At 2:30-3:00 that same afternoon I had a message in my e-mail that a new test result was available. The normal result was there. Putting my mind at ease over the weekend. Thanks to both the Radiologist and Dr. Dutta for the quick response and putting my mind at ease.

this was my first visit to Dr Dutta, as my previous provider left town. I am not pleased with PMG's lack of customer service in that transition. I found a great Dr to carry on my care.

The office receptionist did her best to fit me in on same day with a last appointment of the day Everyone was going home at the time my appointment started Dr Dutta is an amazing doctor and I have referred him to my dearest friends This appointment did not go well because I did not communicate well and also because our time was rushed
100

08/11/2016
This was my initial visit and my husband's second. This is the first time after 11 years in Spokane that I felt like a person who was being listened to and not talked down to. This is an excellent doctor with great interpersonal skills.

DR. DUTTA IS VERY GOOD, NO TROUBLE WITH HIM AT ALL. OFFICE STAFF COULD BE BETTER.

Dr. Dutta seems to genuinely care about his patients. He considers all options medically and is open to refer to other doctors for further opinions and assessments of his patients.

Compassion, understanding, goals to get where I need to be. Accept my health where it is and I have the ability to get where I need to be because your with me all the way there.

I could not be happier with the car I get from Dr Dutta he is great I am lucky to have him.

07/03/2016
When I tried to ask a question he talked over me and became louder. He explained things I already knew and never answered my questions. He has a "wait and see" attitude for a condition that could be serious. He is quick to prescribe drugs. He doesn't understand the relationship between diet and health. I was concerned about weight gain and he never once asked about my diet. I think he misdiagnosed my problem and I will be seeking a different doctor. Dr. Dutta is more concerned with remembering my employer than my health history.

The provider is very good. [...]

I feel the health care I'm receiving now is the best that can be expected. I am more than satisfied with my health care services. I'm receiving my health care information over the internet and have had Dr Dutta call me at home to advise me of test results.

This was the second time I was phoned after the visit and told to disregard medication changes or instructions. Also we never talk about the tests that were performed prior to the appointment. Its as if he forgot about them. When asked says results are online. I'd like a minute of review in easy to understand language.

nurse Was not very caring. Got up set when I told her why I was there said there was not enough time. To me she was rude. Why do thy not have why you are coming in for on the paper work why do they have to ask the patient. Is it not it not there job!

Dr. Dutta is excellent. Quick to listen to my concerns. After a recent phone conversation meds were appropriately adjusted. Follow up are timely. I feel like he keep a close watch on my medical needs. Would highly recommend him.

04/05/2016
Basically I fine Dr.Dutta an excellent doctor However, he is programmed to drugs in respect to care in osteoporosis. I have IBS and told him I would not take any of drugs in the class of bisphosphonates as the NUMBER ONE SIDE AFFECT IS GASTROINTESTINAL. [...] Last year I told him I do yoga and would start also do weight bearing exercises for my wrists as well as take calcium supplements and vitamin D on a routine daily basis. So I felt he isn't listening to me as his patient. I have a lot of sensitivities to drugs and I am very health conscious with my diet.

I had a blood test during my last visit. I have no idea what it showed because all I received was an e-mail through"My Chart" with letter and numbers that I cannot understand.

I recommended this provider to my Sister-in-law and now he's her PC provider. She thinks the world of him.
 

03/22/2016
After I came home I looked up the diagnosis and found that there are foods I should not eat and other ways to treat myself that weren't mentioned while in the office. disappointed that the first solution is to always take a pill. I think there are more natural ways to treat my condition.

03/16/2016
The lady drawing blood was awesome. Every time I come in she treats me with respect and kindness. Give her a raise.

I especially like that Dr. Dutta is great as a family doctor rather that sending me to a specialist for issues such as giving shots or removing skin problems.

Dr. Dutta is an excellent physician and very open to discussion of any questions I may have.

I transferred to Dr. Dutta's office as a new patient, and the visit on [...] was my first visit with Dr. Dutta. We have other family members under Dr. Dutta's care who recommended him highly. Given my recent experience, I would say those recommendations were well deserved.
