This doctor explained everything about my problem to me so I could understand it. He was very thoughtful and professional.
Guthrie Patient: October 2018
This all relates to Dr. Stillwell. I was seen first by Physician's Assistant Timothy G. and want to say that he was outstanding. Did a very thorough history and exam
Guthrie Patient: October 2018
Provider was surprised at the amount of arthritis/disease once I was in surgery. Did not look at knee just at pictures taken while in surgery. Should have examined knee physically.
Guthrie Patient: October 2018
Didn't get any instructions about what to do after the shot in my knee. Had more to tell the doctor but he was in and out... never enough time.
Guthrie Patient: September 2018
Guthrie Patient: September 2018
I was informed by primary care physician today results of MRI showed lg bakers cyst and torn meniscus to my left knee. He made immediate appointment with Guthrie ortho dept for me. I am in extreme pain #9 most of the time. Pain increased over 1 wk to this. my primary prescribed Norco for pain as I as I am also taking Eliquis and cannot take any anti inflammatory meds. When I asked Dr Stilwell what I should do concerning pain and continuing this med. He told me : I am the surgeon you take this up with your primary'. I told him I had a very difficult time walking and this knee would give out and not hold my weight. He told me to' get a wheel chair or walker'. He spent a total of less than 10 minutes with me and did not even state plans in 6 week return visit other than a weight bearing w ray as the ones he has are my lying down. I felt like this young man was not the least bit concerned about how I was feeling, my pain or my concern for future plans. He did not discuss knee replacement, etc. I hesitate to return. I certainly will not recommend him to anyone else. I have always received excellent care from my Guthrie providers and experience until yesterday.
