this was my first appointment, but I feel that I made the right choose to go to this provider for my primary care. it was a great experience. the provider really listen to me, answered my questions the best he could, made suggestions, and referrals all to try to figure out why I am having all my health problems. I feel like he really cares.

Dr. Hutchins was brutally honest to a fault. His bedside manner with his patient and family members was abrupt and rude. He doesn't listen to family members about their loved one who's the patient. His attitude is offensive as a provider as if he's doing you a favor to be your doctor!

When you explain things to nurse it doesn't get to dr., then he treats you based on NOT ALL THE FACTS DUE TO LACK OF TIME! CATTLE CALL!

Dr. Hutchins has been an exceptional health care provider. He shows concern, empathy and listens carefully to what I have to say. He recognized my symptoms of [...] and referred me to a neurologist to begin treatment, a difficult diagnosis for this relatively rare disease. I would recommend he and his staff anytime.

All experiences have been positive.

Good, generally, and readily accepted my concerns. However, he is so popular that it takes time to get an appointment. Also, I am feeling the need for a provider who specializes in elder care issues.

They do the best they can with the time allowed to them [...]. My last visit there was an assistant using the computer and putting in the information without the Dr. having to do it, giving me more quality time with the Dr. That was a good improvement in the overall service. I miss the quality physicals I use to get [...]; no bone scan, no electrocardiogram, no chest x-ray, basically check vitals, order blood test, check balance and mental and go over current meds, but really not an extensive exam [...]

My father has dementia. I was uncomfortable discussing end of life recommendations with the doctor in front of my father. I understand that my father might not remember the conversation but we don't really know what he comprehends. Do we?

I guess they don't understand how much pain I am in because I have to wait so long to get to see a Surgeon. My wife had to send a message to the office to ask what to do next after xray. Already made appointment with Surgeon and the office did not call until after the weekend to tell her to do so.

It's a 'good energy' place. The care from both the doctor and staff is competent and kind. They do their best and that's all you can ask of people. At times we agree to disagree and that's ok too. In the end I am the one who is responsible for taking care of my health. The doctor has skills and tools that I do not possess to help me make healthy choices. I have my own set of skills and tools that I also draw upon for said choices. We all do our best to keep me healthy which at times is no small feat. I appreciate Dr. Hutchins and his staff very much.

the respect and care shown to my husband and I before he passed away was beyond what any other Dr. [...] during his illness showed him, he listened and understood what we were trying to relate to him, and seemed to genuinely care for us. Since my husbands death he listens to me even when it isn't health related and still answers my fears about my health, I feel like I have found not only a new Dr. but also a new friend. This makes a difference when you are ill and not feeling well. It makes you want to follow his advise and do what he says because your not just money to him.
