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.

Didn't talk down to me , gave me clear choices and listened in a way that let me know he had actually read my medical record .
Guthrie Patient: August 2018
Very impressed with Dr. Stillwell
Guthrie Patient: July 2018
The doctor was not helpful at all regarding my left knee pain. I told him I was in pain since June 16, 2018 and he looked at an xray from Feb. 2018. I told him, ,that something now is very wrong with my knee since winter, and since June 16, 2018 my left knee is causing me pain 24/7. He did not want to help me, he insisted I go to my primary orthopedic doctor, instead of him, being my 2nd opinion. Frankly, He acted like what my condition was no concern of his. I would never go back to him, and I would NOT recommend him as a doctor.

Thanks to Dr. Stillwell and his team, I can walk without pain. It's been a life-changing surgery and recovery and he's been very helpful before, during, and after the surgery.
