40 + year relationship. Well established and productive

November 23, 2019 10:35 AM

He spent a lot of time with me talking about the various things I had on my list, some of which were things he brought up 1st (like the shingles vaccine, colonoscopy and checking for hep C). I did not feel rushed and appreciated all of the time he spent with me explaining and providing new information to me.

November 23, 2019 10:35 AM

It was a very positive experience.

November 22, 2019 10:01 AM

Dr. Bob Trauscht is wonderful and great.

November 18, 2019 1:27 PM

Receptionists appeared robotic and just asked questions. I witnessed interaction with some other elderly patients that were hard of hearing and detected a snappy tone appearing like they had to get back to another clerical job not showing empathy towards their clients. My personal experience was positive, but my comments are related to others I saw checking in.

Awesome, as always!

November 12, 2019 12:54 PM

Thank you for everything, and for putting up with me for 29 years so far.

November 12, 2019 12:54 PM

Always a good experience, with Dr Trauscht, and everyone else at their office.

November 5, 2019 11:00 PM

October 22, 2019 7:00 PM

Very good

October 17, 2019 7:00 PM

He always takes time to explain things. He has my records on the computer and refers to them often.

October 6, 2019 7:00 PM

Excellent doctor. what you hope a doctor really is.

September 29, 2019 7:00 PM

he helped keep me on track with meds, bloodwork and possible tests given my age

September 27, 2019 7:00 PM

I believe 'this' Provider is the best one available. I drive, one way, about 25 miles to see him. I live where there are other Providers available in the same town. Again, this Provider IS the BEST!!!!

September 21, 2019 7:00 PM


September 15, 2019 7:00 PM

I can never say enough good things about Dr. Robert Trauscht or his nurse X. They are kind understanding & SO knowledgeable. I always say that I feel like I went to school after listening to Dr. T.

September 13, 2019 7:00 PM

Best doctor I have had. Clerks and receptionists - some good, some bad. It is rare to find a doctor that is not in a rush and likes questions.

September 12, 2019 7:00 PM

I feel comfortable talking with Dr Trauscht

September 8, 2019 7:00 PM

Very satisfied.

September 8, 2019 7:00 PM

I have been seeing Dr. Trauscht for over 20 years. He is the most intelligent, thoughtful physician I have ever known. He is incredibly well-read and takes his time to thoroughly explain why tests are needed, what the results mean and what my options are from a treatment perspective. He is the best there is!

September 2, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Trauscht is awesome. He spends as much time as needed with you to answer all of your questions!

August 4, 2019 7:00 PM

Very good...the doctor always spends ample time with me.

July 28, 2019 7:00 PM

It is always a positive experience when I see Dr Trauscht.

July 26, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Trauscht always makes sure I understand whatever we are talking about. He is open to discuss any of my thoughts on my health care experience or needs.

July 14, 2019 7:00 PM

It was good, considering I don't like going to the doctor.

July 14, 2019 7:00 PM

Always helpful information provided. I'm always seen pretty quickly and I'm always offered every opportunity to share questions or concerns with the info I'm being provided and I'm asked it the information makes sense to me.

July 14, 2019 7:00 PM

love him. always very informative

July 12, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Traucht is very knowledgeable and helps me to understand underlying issues for what I am experiencing. Even though I was struggling with mental fogginess, he was patience and kind with explanations. I especially appreciated his suggestion of the book, "Why We Sleep." it was very informative.

July 10, 2019 7:00 PM

The best!

June 30, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr Trauscht is always very professional and willing to answer any questions I have. I would recommend him to anyone.

June 25, 2019 7:00 PM

I could not ask for a better primary care physician than Dr. Trauscht. He is ALWAYS caring, compassionate & interested in what we discuss regarding my healthcare. He takes time to listen, advise & do quick research for answers. He is truly the best physician I have - now & in the past. I feel very lucky to have found him - he is one of a kind.

June 24, 2019 7:00 PM

great job listening.

June 17, 2019 7:00 PM

always helpful

June 16, 2019 7:00 PM

I am very satisfied with Dr. Trauscht.My biggest concern is who will be my doctor when Dr. Trauscht eventually retires.

June 8, 2019 7:00 PM

Front office staff could be friendlier. Dr. Trauscht and X, are excellent.

June 4, 2019 7:00 PM

I enjoy when I got to visit Dr. Trauscht & his team, the nurses are always very pleasant!

June 3, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Robert Trauscht, his staff, are THE BEST!!!

June 3, 2019 7:00 PM

excellent and through

June 2, 2019 7:00 PM

Overall I was quite impressed with the level of care that I received.

May 26, 2019 7:00 PM

always informative

May 26, 2019 7:00 PM

This was simply a regular check-up and health/meds/tests review. Dr. Trauscht often gives me more info than I want or need, but it's certainly much better than not enough info! For this specific visit I don't think he had reviewed my chart in advance, but I also think he was hampered by a new website that had not transferred all my info from the old site. I think Dr. Trauscht is an excellent doctor, and I will be sad when he retires.

May 14, 2019 7:00 PM

dr Trausch is very through.

May 12, 2019 7:00 PM

I have always found Dr. Trauscht to be a good listener and very knowledgeable. If he is not sure about something, he doesn't hesitate to look things up or refer you to a specialist. His assistant, X, is also great.

May 11, 2019 7:00 PM

doctor trauscht is an excellent doctor that takes the Time to assure all your questions are answered

May 10, 2019 7:00 PM


May 5, 2019 7:00 PM

April 28, 2019 7:00 PM

Very professional and felt a sincere interest in my wellbeing. I hope Dr.Trauscht remains at this facility for a long time.

April 26, 2019 7:00 PM

He always has been helpful

April 22, 2019 7:00 PM

Excellent visit - as normal.

April 1, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr Trauscht is the best doctor I have ever seen. I have been seeing Dr Trauscht for about 29 years and he has always taken time to explain any questions and what the best kinda care I need.He has helped me through scary medical times and I feel I can tell him anything and he will help me.

March 22, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Trauscht and his team or the best any one could ask for, I have been going to him for years and would never change.

March 17, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Trauscht is wonderful and referred my wife to him. He will gladly accept her and he was going to ask X to call X to set up an initial appointment.

January 29, 2019 6:00 PM

It was as expected and was on time.

January 28, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Trauscht is a walking encyclopedia. Any question I have he completely explains & describes the answer. Best doctor I have ever had. X is an exceptional nurse. She is very knowledgeable & very warm & friendly.

January 27, 2019 6:00 PM

Number 34 visited on 2nd day of new software roll out. Some confusion at reception desk.

January 27, 2019 6:00 PM


January 26, 2019 6:00 PM

everyone in Dr. Trauscht's office is very polite and concerned about my health. I would recommend Dr. Trauscht to anyone that wanted to change their doctor.

January 24, 2019 6:00 PM

very complete, answered all my questions, seems very knowledgeable.

January 24, 2019 6:00 PM

I'm a new patient with Dr. Trauscht. The receptionists were great. I saw the doctor just about on time, which I didn't expect. Dr Trauscht checked my vitals and listened to my lungs -- I'll do the blood work up next week. He went into great detail about the meds I've been Prescribed by my previous physician. He gave me hope and confidence that I might be able to stop taking some of the meds based on improved health.

January 24, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Trausche always explains and answers all my questions until I understand them completely. He always informs me of any changes that have been recommended for test that should or should not be done for someone my age. I request them anyway he will do them.

January 24, 2019 6:00 PM

Great physician

January 20, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Trauscht always listens to me about how I feel before he starts the examination.

January 3, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Trauscht has been my provider for many years. He is always friendly, courteous, very knowledgeable and explains things in an understandable way. Always willing to spend as much time as I need. His nurse, X, is also friendly and efficient. Same for office staff (front desk). Absolutely plan to continue with this provider.

November 25, 2018 6:00 PM


November 25, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Trauscht and X have always done an excellent job. They are what keep me coming back

November 23, 2018 6:00 PM

September 23, 2018 7:00 PM

If I did not believe DR. Trauscht was the best Primary Care Doctor I could have, I would not travel over 25 miles, one way, no matter what time of the year (Winter weather) my appointment or need was. DR. Robert Trauscht and his assistant, X are 100 out of 100.

Dr Trauscht handled all questions and decisions with compassion and knowledge while still looking at me and engaging me in those decisions. He's top notch and this is why each of my family members sees him as their doctor.

September 9, 2018 7:00 PM

Being an RN I am aware of more then the average client so I can understand and discuss issues on a more advanced level...due to this Dr. Trauscht treats me as someone who understands medical terms and seems to respect my 40 years of experience as an RN.

September 7, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Trauscht is an excellent and caring Primary physician for my family. I feel very confident to leave my health needs up to him. Always has time for me as a patient and listens! X, Clin spec, is great, listens, and very helpful. Very kind and takes care of Dr. Trauscht's patients. I am in great hands with the care of Dr. Trauscht and X.
