Verified Patient Reviews
This visit was very pleasant. The doctor is very understanding and kind, very careful. He has more that 40 years of experience , he did everything professionally and answered all my questions. I would highly recommend him to my friends
Every time I meet with Dr. Sutton I always feel rushed and he doesn't listen to what I want. I would like him to take his time and not walk out of the room when I'm trying to talk to him. If I want something done or I ask about something regarding my treatment/check-up I don't want to get a response with attitude when I'm paying for a service.
Es un doctor muy profesional, amable con mucha experiencia.
Worst doctor I've ever experienced, both times I saw him. Doesn't read chart, has no idea why you're there, condescending, arrogant and in too much of a hurry to leave. Horrible, horrible horrible, hate myself for returning for the torture and accomplished NOTHING for it. Charging me for this visit should be a crime?
I was early for appointment but only had a short wait
I like him very much! ??
I would not recommend Dr. Sutton to treat children. His bedside manner is cold and he lacks compassion. The office staff was very nice.
Dr. Sutton is a very experienced and compassionate dermatologist. I highly recommend him. The office staff is very organized and friendly as well.
Dr Sutton is the BEST Demotologist in the East Coast. Period.
He is a terrific doctor. Very pleasant and professional.
Dr Sutton is a wonderful dermatologist and provides excellent information and care.
I was an existing patient so that probably streamlined the visit. I was early for my appointment but was shown a treatment room right away. After a bit of paperwork Dr Sutton came in, diagnosed my condition, and we came to an agreement on a treatment. I was treated and out 10 minutes later. Very satisfied.
I have been a patient of Dr. Sutton's since I was a teenager and I am now in my 40's. He is an excellent doctor with a great personality. He knows his stuff and everyone I recommend to him is very pleased with the care they have received.
well done diagnosis
OF ALL THE DERMOTALOGISTS I TRIED ALREADY DR SUTTON WAS THE BEST!!!!!!
Excellent doctor i'm happy been his patient.!!
An excellent doctor. Willing to take the time to get the answer for the correct diagnosis.
This is my fist visit to the new office and I didn't have a good experience. The receptionist assured me that I would be seen promptly, and 35 minutes later I was still sitting in the waiting room. When I went ot the counter to ask why I hadn't been admitted yet, she seemed to be surprised I was still there. Thus office seems very disorganized, and I may look for another skin clinic that takes my insurance.
The wait was too long but I believe it was my fault I arrived 15 min late Still, the staff was efficient and compassionate
It was very professional, yet personal and caring. I had a personal question and he was very honest and caring .
I went to many times with the same problem.
I was on time and so was the entire staff of Dr. Dutton and the group. The receptionist made the paperwork extremely easy and quick. Doing most of the paperwork online prior to the visit made a great difference. The entire staff is very professional and very kind.
Great in and out with no delay. Professional and courteous.
Electronic confirmation of appointment is convenient and the introduction to the courteous professional staff. Dr. Sutton does not make you wait, willing to answer any questions, and is a pleasant doctor who gets right to business.
I have been seeing Dr. Sutton for about twenty years. I always feel confident in his diagnoses and treatments. I don't know of any dermatologist in the area who is as capable.
GREAT DOCTOR AND A GREAT ASST KAREN
always thorough always congenial always look forward to the visit now have been seeing him for 42 years frederick j
I have been a patient of Dr Sutton for years now! I have recommended him to friends and family members, who have been equally satisfied. His nurses and staff are very knowledgable and professional. I highly recommend him!
the staff there are mostly not friendly and cold, although there are a few nice ones. I waited for about thirty minutes which is average to slow. however doctor sutton is very friendly and knowledgeable. overall wasn't a smooth and comfortable experience for me, would have to think twice before going again
He was polite, treated me quickly. Went to have him look at an odd skin mark. He reassured me it was nothing and gave me some information about what it was.
Dr Sutton that I have treated me before over the years is so friendly and knows what is the best treatment for my skin condition. John
The doctor was very attentive to my health needs

Que fue muy Bueno
Just fine Feb 22, 2016
Very thorough. Addressed all concerns
I thought Dr. Sutton was professional. I was examined promptly and he gave me his expert diagnosis as well as a full body check for Melanoma, etc.. All went well.
He rushed through my appointment, when he saw me he came in looked at my skin and just started prescribing me stuff without actually explain what I might actually be experiencing with my skin.
I was very reassured about my condition, and highly satisfied with the treatment, as well as the professionalism.
I have a great regard for the professional help I have received from Dr. Sutton and his staff. He is a true professional caring physician who has helped me deal with and correct numerous skin cancers. I have complete confidence in his abilities which has been given to me over the last 15 years. I would gladly recommend him in the future and have recommended him in the past. Thank you for giving me this opportunity. Tom B.

Great. He told me I don't have cancer.
He's the best
I was very happy with the visit.
Dr. Sutton is very good at what he does which is put the patient at ease, explains what he's doing and never talks down to you. He's a very warm and caring person which is hard to find in the medical profession. His whole office seems to reflect his demeanor. Without a doubt, I would recommend him.
Dr Sutton is thorough and always pleasant. He answered my questions and explained his findings. I have been his patient for more than ten years.
Dr. Sutton is am outstanding. caring physician.
Dr Sutton is great. Professional and knows his stuff. I've been a patient of his for a long time. He has always made me feel comfortable. I trust his knowledge and expertise.
Very Professional, explained procedure well, and resolved all my concerns in a timely manner.
He is the consummate professional. A wonderful doctor and man. And his staff is the best.
Super nice man and definitely knows his stuff.. My daughter is ten and has warts in which spread on her finger, when he was discussing all the options with freezing being the most effective he told her it would really hurt. I feel he would not be the best choice for pediatric as the expression on his face was quite obvious how bad the procedure would hurt her. We have tried all over the counters and now we are back to that as my daughter wld not let him go near her finger... Needles to say was not happy as we waited 45 min for basically nothing.
Always liked Dr Sutton, very educated and a true professional.
We've been patients of Dr. Sutton for over 10 years and are very happy with him and his staff.
Diagnose was right on,tried to help with cost of medicine.very good office.
Dr. Sutton is always the consummate professional, a truly caring doctor with years of experience. I highly recommend him for anyone in need of a dermatologist!
Went well, and cured my symptoms!
Dr. Sutton is one of the best doctors that I've met. Extremely friendly and thorough-the best.
Dr. Sutton's office was new to ZocDoc at the time, so I only waited for a while because I was new to the system! Once I got in, they were incredibly nice and Dr. Sutton removed a wart on my nose for me and was very friendly and informative! :)
Professional but with a great bed side manner
Great Dr. I've been using him for 35yrs+.
First of all the wait was too long.Additionally, I have been seeing Dr, Sutton for awhile. I happen to be confident in his diagnostic abilities however, the truth is that his bedside manner needs improvement. He is a bit quick and curt and not patient enough nor does he explain thoroughly the issues. It would be fabulous if his manner could improve. I am thrilled that you are doing this feedback system. Thank you.
