I had a colonoscopy done by Dr Duta in late April 2015 and was NOT pleased at all with the procedure he preformed I am a nurse and know I can be put into a trilight sleep for the process so that I would be a sleep. He did NOT do as I asked and so went through a great deal of pain. I actually yelled out as it hurt so much. I felt after that that he did not do as I asked so what would have he done during a major cancer surgery of which I needed. I fortunately went to Victoria and found an outstanding surgeon. I would never go back and see Dr Duta. It wasn't necessary to have had such pain but I think he just wanted to get the procedure done and so did not do as I asked. He said I would be out and would not feel anything. That was a lie and I wasn't impressed. Think twice to have him as your doctor.
I had the misfortune to have Dr. Duta for an endoscopy. Although I was experiencing extreme pain, he continued to probe me anally. When I spoke to the staff at his office, all I received was indifference. I was bleeding and sore for weeks afterwards. Do not go near this quack, do not allow him to be in the same hospital....This man needs his medical license revoked.
3 years ago I was diagnosed with rectal cancer in which Dr duta took care of. I have a permanent stoma which developed a large hernia. April 13 he repaired the hernia and I have devoleped more than one abcess and am still in the hospital on iv antibiotics. I have a separated something in which another Dr who did a scope Saturday says my stoma needs to be moved. Waiting on Dr duta, who has forgotten to leave proper orders for nurses and laying here sick and in pain for the past three weeks since this surgery and 1.5 years prior has frustrated myself and my family. Perhaps its time for me to consider legal advice for he has taken away a lot of my life ironically even though he saved me from Cancer. HELP PLEASE.
I was referred to Dr. Duta for a routine colonoscopy after a FIT test was positive. This scoping process found two polyps, one of which was removed and the other biopsied. However the scope was unable to reach the end of my colon (cecum)so he arranged for a CT scan. At a follow-up appointment he showed me the CT report that had determined a potential neoplasm at the cecum. He was very thorough in his explanation of these results and took all the time I needed to understand them. We also made a decision to follow-up with another colonoscopy to take a closer look and he was prepared to conduct an immediate laparoscopy surgery to remove the neoplasm if the colonoscopy was unable to reach the cecum. This procedure was conducted within 4 days (on a Saturday), was successful in removing polyps at the cecum with the scope (no surgery needed). He called me the next day to see how I was doing and to make sure that I understood the procedure. I am very impressed with his work and character.
Saw Dr Duta about gallstones and stomach pain (chronic, acute). Didn't really know or suggest anything except take out gallbladder. Booked surgery. No appt prior so wasn't aware of side effects. Surgery day I saw him while waiting for OR to be ready (in hallway). He was grumpy and rushed and was not pleasant asking where the (anesthetist) was. Obviously agitated, didn't say hello (nurse with me going over chart). I asked if I can keep the gallstone to see it and he yells NOPE and turns to grab something in hallway. I asked why and he said some two word thing about it going somewhere (testing?). Leaves. I was anxious already and he seemed irritable, over booked perhaps, and not pleasant. Follow up had to be rescheduled due to family things and the staff on the phone are always short, rude, don't answer (we have tried calling to get through for days). I asked prior to surgery if I had a biopsy test done in my last scope (3 calls I asked) and no response. Appt seems rushed, is late.
