General Comments

My hip replacement surgery experience with Dr. Duwelius was excellent and I would highly recommend that you consider him for yours. My mobility had deteriorated to almost nothing and my pain was almost unbearable. Dr. Duwelius recognized the urgency of my situation and immediately created a time slot in 3 weeks to have surgury. The personal interaction was fun and light, which I appreciated, but you will note immediately that this doctor is highly knowledgeable and knows his profession which gave me confidence going into surgery. The pre-surgery prep and the post-surgery follow up with the doctor and his staff was excellent and thorough. I am thrilled to be back to full workout & training including biking, swimming, running, weight-lifting and snow-mobiling.

He was recommended to me.

Negative Comments

He rushed me through a 3 minute visit, giving the distinct impression he was blowing me off. Worse, he was condescending and addressed me as "girl" several times. I was so taken aback, I failed to remind him I'm a mature woman with a name.

Spends Time with Patients
"Spent 3 minutes max./per appt.- when asked to stay and listen to some issues to some problems, he blamed everyone else. I feel that he should have taken what was said since he is supposed to be in control, not a nurse or P.C.."
Appropriate Follow-up
"Never had a MD walk out of room before I was finished talking about issues involving surgery."
Surgery was great... Follow up was the worst I've experienced.

Attutude of ' I'm through, patient is walking, got paid, NEXT! '

General Comments

Will never go though this Doctor again. Will not recommend his services to anyone, not because of his ability, but because of his attitude. At least allow the patient to verbilize when there are painful issues at hand, instead of attitude of ' it's not my problem'. Who's problem is it? Surgean is supposed to be in control, just like me in controling my temper. We walked out of his office, never to return.

Easy to talk to; no intimidation. Excellent surgeon on total hip replacement. Couldn't ask for better. Not counting weekends, I missed 9 days of work. Went back to work without crutches.
