Verified Patient Reviews
Dr DuShey was extremely thorough and able to explain his prognosis in a way that was easily understandable. Fantastic experience all-round.
Great first appointment !
Listen to me, people of the Internet: you want to go to Dr. Dushey. He's practically a prince. Explains everything clearly, is generous w his time, tells stories from his family, demonstrates what other doctors might not take the time to demonstrate.. All of these assets come packaged in a warm and personable guy who seems to genuinely enjoy his job. You could eat off the floors of the office, but you won't have to because there was no wait time, so you won't get hungry. All told, see this man, k?
I was unsatisfied with my experience. The doctor is a nice person but I don't think he understood the complete issue too well. I am still unsure of why I am having so much pain in my knee and it is only increasing. I will be visiting another doctor.
He took time to explain the injury and implications, so I knew the reason behind the diagnosis and recommended treatments. He answered the questions I had.
Not a long wait time which is something I always look for. Was able to see doctor and get X-rays that were needed right away. In and out in less than an hour.
He is an excellent doctor.
Cured what ailed me!
I liked that the doctor spent a fair amount of time with me to help diagnose my issues. He provided clear explanations and indicated specifically what he was looking at on the X-Ray. Office was modern and large with knowledgeable & friendly staff. From front desk staff to doctor to radiologist to prescriptions, everything worked like a well oiled machine. Highly recommend.
Great first experience with Dr. DuShey. He explained everything clearly and I was able to get x-rays and reviewed very efficiently. Highly recommended.

Great new orthopedic office and he was good. very thorough,concerned and efficient. Pleasant experience!
Excellent. I recommend Dr. Du Shey
Their timing got backed up by patients being late because of snow. I think I would have been better time wise if not for that.
See my comments on Zocdoc below, explaining why I had to wait more than one hour .
Professional, kind, welcoming and easy to talk to and listen.
Awesome Dr. and support staff
Very no-nonsense, super professional, and easy to talk to. The appointment was quick, but didn't feel rushed, and he discussed my diagnosis and options with me, and I left feeling like I understood both what was wrong and what my next steps were. His staff was equally as nice, and handled everything with speed and professionalism. Plus, the office itself was quite clean and modern. The one downside is they don't accept AmEx, but given how great everything else was, they get a pass on that.
He told me that my leg problems were because I'm getting old. I was 24.
Dr. DuShey was so personable, as was everyone in the office. A great experience!
I'm 42 years old and of all doctors I've ever seen he has the best bedside manners. Highly knowledgable and explains everything thoroughly.
Dr. DuShey was very pleasant & thorough. He answered all of my questions and was very patient. Highly Recommended!
I went in for knee pain, and he was very thorough, asking questions about exactly when it was hurt, what activities I do, and where it hurts.
I find him very open to answering questions and that is a huge plus. I have no reason to believe he is not very competent in terms of his knowledge.
Very friendly and more than willing to answer all questions. Very pleasant guy.
took the time to make everything clear.
Excellent-- he provided me with a better diagnosis and rationale
Always a good experience with Dr. DuShey -- understands, listens, has easy solutions to follow! My go-to orthopedist!
Great doctor. Did a thorough examination and talked to me about what he was looking for and doing every step of the way.
Dr. DuShey was friendly and caring about my knee issues.
Even though there was some confusion about scheduling, the office staff fit me right in and were very professional and welcoming. I thought the appointment would be rushed due to squeezing me in, but it wasn't. Dr. DuShey got a thorough history and exam, did x-rays without me needing to ask for them, and took his time to explain them and make sure he answered all my questions. I definitely recommend him and his office!
I can't say enough good things but ill keep it to thorough, clear, knowledgeable, and understanding. Highly qualified. Highest recommendation.
He was very friendly, but, more important, thorough in asking questions, ruling out alternatives via x-ray results (something another doctor did not do and thus misdiagnosed me) and answered all my questions. Not much more that one can ask for. Did not feel rushed.
Quick and easy. Very calm, honest & funny. Did not push for surgery even though it was an option.
knowledgeable and personable
He was absolutely awesome. Not only did he treat me with respect, he took time to go over with me how to view an x-ray and gave me some background information regarding the anatomy of the knee. It was a perfect appointment. Thank you Zocdoc!
All around fantastic doc. Looking forward to continue seeing him for my orthopedic needs.
One of the rare medical offices where the front desk staff is very friendly and the doctor truly caring and knowledgeable. I was in and out in about 20 minutes and yet got all my questions answered. Highly recommended!
Dr.DuShey was very warm, observant, and a pleasure to meet. I'm looking forward to my next visit.
Great bedside manner
He very friendly and patient. He makes patient feel at ease, and easy to trust him. Since this was my first visit I cannot say much, but I would love the opportunity to comment later after I get to see how he works.
Thorough, friendly and professional - explained the options available to me for my situation. Took the time to make sure I understood the X-rays and treated me like an intelligent human being which is not bad for a doctor.
Very nice and made me feel very comfortable.
Good thorough efficient
Great doctor and provided excellent care.
Dr. DuShey saw me right away. Very friendly and professional. The staff was also very courteous. The location is inconvenient, but it was worth the trek.
