What People Say About Dr. John Douthit, DO
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr. Douthit is an awesome doctor. He takes a personal interest in my health and is excellent in personal follow up - whether it be test results or just to find out how you are feeling. My Mother is a new patient of Dr. Douthit and recently when she came to see him because she was ill, he took the time a few days later to call her at home to see how she was doing. This is a rare trait in doctors these days, and is indicative of the level of care he provides. Also, Dr. Douthit allows an opportunity for transitioning "theory to practicing" medical students to get the valuable experience they need to progress into the medical field successfully, which is admirable. I highly recommend Dr. Douthit as a primary physician and I have been going to his office for over 10 years now. Thank you Dr. Douthit, Linda and Cara...

I've had excellent experiences with every appointment with Dr. Douthit. He's been respectful, understanding, knowledgeable and he makes sure I'm alright after every appt. If I have questions he will take as long as I need in order to make me feel confident. I've spent many times in hospital and whenever I've told them who my primary doctor is, all have said he is a fantastic one!!!! I would recommend him to any family or friend!!! My name is Kari a current patient of Dr. Douthit. His staff rocks

My husband went to this doctor for years and he had multiple chest X-rays performed. He went to him constantly for several health issues including back and chest. The last time he went was 2-3 weeks ago. My husband is now in the hospital with lung, spine, brain and lymph node cancer and only 2 to 6 months to live. I wouldn’t recommend a murderer to this doctor. His license should be removed.

Dr. Douthit and his staff are so nice. The wait is reasonable and they have toys in the exam rooms so my toddler has something to keep her busy! I am very pleased with the level of care I receive there and appreciate the staffs efforts to make their consumers feel comfortable. They even hand out stickers to the children which was a nice bonus!

I am completely satisfied with John he takes the time to make me feel like he really cares about his patients.. We are pain in the butt patients but he always treats us with respect and we can get in to see him right away usually. He will make time to get you in to see him especially if you have an emergency which in my family's case seems to be once a week, but that doesn't faze him. If he doesn't have experience with a particular concern, he will do research and find out what is best for you.

Very poor experience with this man. Actually told the patient's sister 'you are pissing me off', after she began listing the concerns she had with her brother. We were very rushed and unable to get the majority of concerns brought up. Really, there are so many other doctors in this world who want to see patients and be nice to them... pass this dude by.

I have only seen Dr. Douthit two times. Both times I was never given an answer as to what was wrong with me and he brushed it off like it was no big deal. He seemed very scatter brained and confused both times. He spent both visits talking about unrelated topics but never got down to the reasons I was there. Unless you have the common cold or something very minor, DON'T SEE THIS DOCTOR!! I can honestly say that I have zero faith in his judgement. The staff however is great!

He's got extremely poor bedside manors. Rude & condescending. Asks plenty of questions because he does not review anything prior. He constently cuts you off when you're trying to speak to him. I seen a few doctors like him but he's the worst of the worst

Dr. Douthit has poor listening skills. It is as if he only reading from a health brochure and not actively listening. I explained 4 positive changes I had made in lifestyle and health changes and he went on to read those items and recommend I do them as if he did not hear what I had said. I also had reported a past condition (in the new patient survey a few years before and also face to face) and he did not have it in my medical record. I lost confidence in his patient care my last visit.
