Dr. Dutra was very thorough in his explanation of my disease. He went over different options for treatment plans and was very personable and knowledgeable. As a nurse, I work with many doctors and Dr. Dutra has one of the best bedside manners I've seen from a physician, which is rare considering how experienced he is.

I am truly amazed, with Dr. Dutra , and his assistant. They are so kind. After my exam, as I have been there many times, Dr Dutra sits down looks you in the eye, and talk to you as if you were a real person. He is so kind and understanding. I see many doctors, for other problems, , not at your hospital, and I am not treated the same way, with respect like with Dr Dutra. Northwestern hospital, is blessed to have him and his assistant Thank you, thank you!

Dr Dutra was so nice. He made me feel very comfortable and relaxed about what he was doing. I appreciated that he didn't hesitate to use more lidocaine for my biopsy as soon as he saw I was still having some discomfort after the first try.

although I had to ask questions, because the doctor did not volunteer information about the biopsy procedure and what his comments to the PA meant, when I inquired, he was very good about explaining what terms meant and why he was doing certain procedures.

Extraordinary doctor. truly interested in my condition. Gave me advise and insight into my condition no other doctor has done. Gave me direction and referred to another doctor for my condition. Was honest and realistic with the complications of surgery. This guy has lived through these complications and does not sugar coat the problem. Honest trustworthy If I need surgery in the future this is the surgeon I want.
