He gave me cortisone shots instead of amending my PT persciption. My Pt provider would not treat me within 7 days of the shots. Dr Dutta did not tell me that was going to happen.

A year ago I was an athlete with an amazing life. My health went downhill overnight and I believe it was because of mistakes this provider made. He prescribed medications tha caused severe side effects and then ignored the problem. little did I know he never actually planned to treat me in any way. All tests and referrals ordered in the last year were the urging of my husband. I recently found out that tests he claimed to have ordered were never ordered. This is the most unprofessional doctor I have ever seen. And the office staff is just as bad. So glad I finally saw the light.

09/27/2017
Dr. Dutta is easily the most personable, engaged, and qualified MD I have ever been treated by. He has that rare combination of compassion and intelligence. He has restored my confidence in traditional medicine with his professionalism, work ethic and due diligence, he is a credit to the medical profession.

This was my initial visit to establish care with a new PCP, after recently moving to Spokane. During the visit I was told I would be referred to a specialist (allergist) for 3 different issues, but I did not receive a referral at the time of the visit nor have I received anything following the visit. Also, I was told I need to have blood drawn for lab tests but was not given any paper at the visit, nor follow-up email, etc about fasting, the date of when I need to have the blood drawn by, etc. I left the visit without a clear plan of next steps and I have not received any follow-up info through email, postal mail or MyChart.

Very caring and kind. Made sure I understood instructions clearly. Asked questions so he understood the situation and could make an educated treatment plan. Consulted with me on whether I felt the treatment plan would work for me.

I have lymes. I was recently in Wisconsin and became ill with all the classic symptoms. dr dutta ordered the lymes test which confirmed it but he should of put me on antibiotics right away instead of me having to go back to urgent care on Saturday to get them. he didn't think I had the symptoms. I had them all except the rash which came two days later. [...]

This provider was very nice, but didn't seem to take my preferences into account. He jumped to prescribing medication when I had previously been working with previous providers on maintaining my health through lifestyle changes. It seemed that he didn't consider my previous providers records on what their approach had been (my previous providers were also Providence).

06/22/2017
Dr Dutta is an excellent physician who provided great care for my mom, myself and my significant other in my household. I hope to be with him as long as I can.

06/21/2017
Now that my husband is in a specialized care environment, I am being listened to more about my own health issues. Since this is a fairly new provider for me (one year), we are getting to know each other and how to deal with my health concerns. My most recent visit didn't feel like a "by the way" list of things on my mind, and after a CTscan, I was informed of the results that day.

06/07/2017
Dr. Dutta is a great doctor. He is a compassionate and caring physician and I would recommend him highly.

He knew I had vertigo but didn't think it was that bad so he only gave over the counter medicine that barely helped.

Dr. Dutta was on time, I had a shoulder problem on the left side, maybe a pinch nerve in my neck, had the same problem on my right side 15 months ago, he gave me something and it went away. He didn't seem to look hard enough in my records to find out what he gave me so he said I needed PT and that was it. Also I waited 45 minutes to get labs done, never again will I wait that long and that's not the first time usually takes 20 minute and that's to long.

After seeing my doctor, I was scheduled for blood work at the lab there. I had to wait 45 min. & no one cared.

04/05/2017
I feel like I have to prove myself each visit in order to get his respect. this is the first visit where I felt we'd come to an understanding that I am knowledgeable about my illnesses and want to make my own decisions, with his help. It's been a long row to hoe though. hopefully now we won't regress in our relationship.

01/26/2017
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.
100

12/30/2016
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!
70

12/28/2016
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.
50

12/14/2016
I don't always feel like he is hearing my concerns. he makes a lot of decisions without talking to me about them.
100

12/01/2016
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 .
100

11/24/2016
Dr Dutta always listens and provides necessary information to me.
