About Dr. Troutman

Philosophy of care

I believe children are a unique population of patients that require a physician dedicated to their well-being. I believe they are vulnerable and often unable to speak up for themselves. I believe that each child and family should be treated as if they are my own relation.

Why I entered medicine

I entered medicine for the satisfaction of being able to help and offer hope to those who are ill. I chose pediatric hematology oncology because these children have a serious illness and their parents are at the lowest point of their lives, and I can provide them with hope and compassion.

Community involvement

I volunteer at Camp Dost, a camp for children with cancer. Since 2003 I have helped there, and love seeing how this experience helps kids who are dealing with cancer enjoy time just being kids.

Personal interests

I enjoy many types of sports, but specifically like basketball, baseball, football, and golf. I also like to go canoeing and doing physical fitness activities.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
