What People Say About Dr. Steven Dutcher, DO

Dr. Dutcher. I came to your office after emergency room visit. My spinal fluid sac was leaking very bad and you have one person in particular who took it upon herself to not get me in to see you. My life depended on this and if meningitis would have sit in I could be dead plus others sense it would have been bacterial meningitis and the CDC would have to have been called. May God have mercy on you - how many other patients have been turned away and maybe even died because of this person?

Front office does not care. They refer you to ER rather than having doc see you. I was diagnosed with a large pocket of infected lumbar fluid via MRI (script from ER doc), staff was given info and failed to give me an appt because they said I had an appt scheduled in October (several weeks out). Five days later, not even a call back. Called a different surgeon on Friday and immediately got an appt. and now moving forward to schedule lumbar fluid drain. An untreated infection is dangerous.

He is the best at what he does. My husband, after 12 surgeries (not all done by him) he put my husband back together again., making all screws and rods align from previous surgeries.. He pulled it all out and did just two rods and 10 or 12 screws. My man is now standing straight and feeling good! Thank you dr. Dutcher!

Dr. Dutcher is an outstanding neurosurgeon. I had no discs left in my spine and had horrendous pain from sciatica. I could not stand, walk, sit or sleep without pain. The day after my surgery, I was discharged and walking with no pain at all.
