Ondrej and his PA Carin were very personable and spent more than a fair amount of time explaining three possible procedures to minimize the phantom limb pains that have haunted me since my below amputation in 2011.

The last Neurosurgical consultation I had in Boise I waited three and a half hours. Not with Dr. Choutka. Not with St. Alphonsus. Spot on time. He took the time to sort out a year and a half of my very complicated neurologic train wreck. Broke it down piece by piece. Made it all a bit more manageable. Left with a plan. If I get better I will circle back and update and add more positive to his scores. If I take a turn for the worse, well I will share that also. He actually examined me!

We were so blessed Dr. Choutka was there when I was ambulanced to the hospital. We were told to expect surgery, due to Dr Choutkas expertise he chose to runl tests before surgery. What a blessing for me as he realized, at the time, surgery was not needed. He is personable, extremely knowledgeable, caring and patient with all of my silly questions. He is highly thought of by the hospital nurses willing to do what it takes to make his patients comfortable.

Dr. Choutca is kind and compassionate, but explains medications and procedures without sugar coating and without talking "down" to patients. I would highly recommend him.

Outstanding neurosurgeon - I was very impressed in his ability to diagnose a spinal issue causing pain AND in his caring mannerism. He was not in a hurry during the initial office first visit and he came in pre-op to explain things once again in a very professional way that put me at ease - and answered all of my questions clearly and without being hasty or condescending - excellent doctor and an excellent result with the surgery. (Only complaint is that his office doesn't answer the phone.)
