Patient Comments

Patient comments are gathered from our Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey and displayed in their entirety. Patients are de-identified for confidentiality and patient privacy.

Guthrie Patient: January 2020
Great care was taken to send xrays, MRIs, and written reports to Dr. Stilwell before the appointment. He failed to review any of the information shared. He also failed to explain the results of the MRI to me or options for treatment. He rushed the appointment and diagnosed me BEFORE looking at the reports or MRI. I do not feel confident with his time or medical opinion shared during the appointment.
Guthrie Patient: December 2019
Dr Stillwell was great.
Guthrie Patient: December 2019
again yearly visit, Dr Stillwell is the best! I do refer him all the time! Yeah I am that age that I know a lot of older people ;-)
Guthrie Patient: December 2019
*Dr. Stillwell comes with great recommendations. I hear he is a great surgeon but he doesn't really reach out to patients to help them feel comfortable. He often speaks so quickly as to be unintelligible. #5. I did recommend *Dr. Stillwell & attended a session with my friend. He spoke so quickly & didn't ask if she had questions - she wasn't impressed.
Guthrie Patient: November 2019
Dr Stillwell was amazing as usual and nurse was excellent.
Guthrie Patient: November 2019
I have confidence in Dr.Stilwell. He is very attentive and empathetic. Answered all my questions.
Guthrie Patient: October 2019
Dr. Stilwell is an incredible doctor. From our first meeting - my surgery he provided me the kind of medical care that makes you know that you are in the very best hands possible. Dr. Stilwell treated me with respect, answered any questions we had, and made me feel that my health, safety and wellbeing was of the greatest importance.
Guthrie Patient: October 2019
very good
Guthrie Patient: October 2019
I was very aware of the hurried conditions of the entire department! Dr. Stilwell already had his mind made up that a replacement was needed. This was unexpected. The questions I came prepared to ask were not applicable so he totally dismissed them. I assume his 10-minutes were spent and he left abruptly.
Guthrie Patient: September 2019
answer all my questions and made me feel comfortable
