Patient Comments (10)
St Louis, MO |
I was referred to Dr Ducharme for a thyroid problem by my primary physician. I waited in the exam room for almost 2 hrs before she came in, and then she proceeded to not listen at all to me, stated I was wrong with everything I said, and other providers were all wrong. She spent her entire time typing away in her computer and none of it focusing on my situation or how to resolve it.
MO |
I thought she was loathsome. She canceled appointments as frequently as she scheduled them. Cancellations occurred at the last minute, i.e., as your STANDING IN HER OFFICE, which is already overly-crowded. 150-mile round trip wasted. I think Ducharme is a hot, ghetto mess.

Dr. Ducharme is a rare combination of scientist and first-rate doctor. Thorough examinations and reports, a good memory for examinations done weeks ago, and a direct professional conduct. Go to her.

Compassionate, knowledgeable physician. Returns phone calls the same day. Has a wonderful assistant, Carrie

Dr. Ducharme is very thorough and has got my sugar and weight in control. I would definitely recommend her.

She made me feel like she was very interested in my History and gave me a thorough exam. She detailed information on what I needed for the future.

Dr. Ducharme was terrific. She is a very high energy doctor, and I very much like that about her. She was kind, and she got the the issue very quickly. I also liked that she explained a range of choices for me. She recommended a conservative approach to start, and asked for a follow-up in 6 weeks. My only suggestion for improvement would be to provide an e-mail address for sending in the readings during the interval between appointment and FUP. Otherwise, an excellent experience.

You're a number. Double-booking: once waited 1 hour for 7:45 AM appt, saw her slip into other patients' rooms- NO acknowledgement of/apology for lateness. Begins appts with rapid-fire questions followed by 5-second man-handling exam. PERFECTLY followed her advice for months, she made NOT ONE comment on marked improvements, only not good enough. Renewed wrong Rx, forgot call-backs. Harsh, lacks basic empathy & courtesy, seemingly views you as a set of test results, not a person.
in St Louis, MO |
WOULD NOT RECOMMEND. Dr. Ducharme insisted on diagnosing me with an disease even though I did not meet the criteria its diagnosis, and even though I was only seeing her for primary care needs. In answer to my questions, she rattled off generic facts with her eyes closed. In addition, her BJC office schedules appointments for you without asking your availability - they just hand you the appointment card. They also accidentally kept my health insurance card and had to mail it to me.
in Cape Girardeau, MO |
I had two good visits. Dr Ducharme was really concerned with my health and was aggressive in my care. This is what I needed. I didn't wait long in the waiting room. I had lab tests and she called with results. My brother said she talks fast, but I was able to follow her speech and instruction. I am sure if you ask her to speak a little slower she will do it. She seems to be really into her work and cares about my welfare.
