Dr. Truitt is an excellent doctor! He was very clear answering all my questions and explained everything to me without any rush during my appointment. Besides that, he performed a tonsillectomy and I couldn't be happier with the result! He is absolutely awesome professional!

We lucked out when I scheduled my child's appt with whatever Dr was available soonest and wound up with Dr. Truitt. Dr. Truitt was very patient with my unhappy toddler during an ear wax removal procedure. He never seemed to be annoyed with my crying/screaming child (which hasn't been the case with other St. Cloud ENT Dr's.) Dr. Truitt made sure all of our questions were answered thoroughly and was very friendly. The appt didn't feel rushed at all.

Seen him for my very deviated septum.getting worse over the last 12 years .he seemed rushed. Said it’s a lot of work to rebreak & correct and that state insurance doesn’t coverbut he could just cut cartilage out for better air flow.Seemed like he just didn’t want to do it & rude how does he know I don’t have a savings and can pay for what I need.no X-rays just peeked in my nose and asked if there’s anything else he could do for me. I walked out knowing I wouldn’t be scheduling that Appt.

I would like to report an excellent experience with Dr. Truitt. I saw him to do an inoffice surgical procedure that was extensive and required a very high level of skill and experience. He and the staff were very sensitive to my present and past experiences with this and throughout the procedure addressed my level of comfort and discomfort. I felt listened to and safe in this office.

Arrogant, would not let me ask a question or complete a sentence. I was discharged from the hospital after 4 days with an infection and his response was I wouldn't even have treated you. Has longer hair and continued to run both hands through his hair during appointment, then with out washing came at me to examine my face, mouth, nose and ears. He walked out of the appointment mid sentence as he did not want to answer questions. More concerned about his hair and looks than the patient.
