I never leave reviews for anything but this visit was worth leaving this negative review. Dr. Cutting was EXTREMELY RUDE, unprofessional and was definitely not concerned on the reason for my visit. She didn’t even respect the fact that my husbandwas in the room. She proceeded to repeatedly ask questions I had answered SEVERAL times already with her! Her physical exam was very painful! The receptionist and nurse that took my vitals and history were very nice and professional!

Dr. Cutting is one I would avoid at this practice, she lacks empathy and tact. Didn’t listen when I shared my preferences and made me feel guilty and embarrassed for even having to come in to be seen. It was theworst experience I have had. I felt like she judged and had her mind made up about me before I even opened my mouth. She did her job and left promptly without so much as a kind word. It was sad for me.

I never ever leave reviews for anything, but this was the worse experience I have ever had in a doctor's office. I waited 45 minutes before Dr. Cutting even came in to my room. When she arrived, she was very shortwith her words and did not let me know what she was doing before performing a very rushed exam. Overall, just awful bedside manner. I was very uncomfortable and couldn't wait to leave.

Dr Cutting wasn't as pleasant as I expected her to be. I've been to this practice a lot of times so typically the Drs are very upbeat and personable. I just assumed she was tired since it was the end ofthe day. Her exam seem really quick and almost rushed. The wait time was very minimal. I was in and out within 30 minutes for the whole appt.

She was a little too abrupt and insensitive for my liking. I went in feeling uneasy and uncomfortable because of the nature of the appointment. Instead of helping alleviate my anxiety she managed to make it worse with her bedside manner.She also wasn't very helpful with coming up with a forward-looking plan with regards to the issue I'd gone in to see her about. I wound up having things taken care of (properly and in a more friendly, kinder way) by Dr. Santiago (also based in Alexandria, VA).

She wasn't very engaging, I asked questions and she kind of just seemed like I was bothering her. I love this practice but I will probably not choose to see her again she was not very warm nor did she seemto care about being in the there to help me or speak to me. She just did her job and rolled out in the middle of me asking a question, just walked out of the room while barely discussing my concerns and then just dismissed me to go wait to get my blood taken.

Unfortunately Dr. Cuttings isn’t the most welcoming or personable doctor. Every doctor I’ve met in my life at least has asked a personable question or gotten to know me. She went straight to examination and then made me feel bad bysaying something that made me felt like I didn’t know anything about my own body. Very disappointed with the service and my questions were not answered. I was rushed and that is just awful patient care.

I would absolutely never go back. I left this office on the verge of tears. I currently have a cyst that has made it hard for me to move on my right ovary and despite all of her staff being VERYfriendly she was absolutely terrible. I have PCOS so I’ve pretty much been treated terribly by doctors my entire life but I’m in pain and her asking me about my facial hair and seeing a dermatologist and invalidating the pain from my large cyst and telling me “it will go away” was not helpful. A google search will do more and won’t leave you in tears.

clinic staff were friendly and I was seen on time; I prefer a warmer bedside manner for an OB/GYN appointment. She didn’t smile, ask how I was doing, etc. Personally, I felt that Dr. Cutting was short, not empathetic to mypersonal preferences and strongly suggested alternatives that I did not want. She asked me about an experience I had 10+ years ago. When I couldn’t recall the details exactly, she seemed annoyed. She made me feel like what I wanted was a bad idea. I didn’t hear a health or safety risk associated with my choice, only that i would is experience mild discomfort early on. On the plus, she was timely, efficient and did answer my questions, albeit briskly. I would go back to the clinic but have an appointment with someone better suited to my preferences for bedside manner.

This lady has the worst personality of anyone I've ever met in 29 years of my life. I like the ease in which I can be seen by her though because no one really wants to go to her. I guessI can handle her lack of bedside manner but she is definitely not for the faint of heart. I would suggest forgoing her if you don't like egotistical doctors with no sense of empathy.

I was seen by Dr. Cutting today. Found the receptionist to be incredibly friendly and I was taken back to be seen almost immediately after checking in. Dr. Cutting herself was very to the point, but for those looking for anin-and-out appointment (like myself), this was helpful. With that said, she also made sure to ask if I had any questions or wanted to talk about other concerns during my appointment. I never felt rushed, just simply that the appointment was moving along. If you're looking for a doctor to be highly empathetic, Dr. Cutting may not be for you. If you are looking to have the basics covered, Dr. Cutting comes across as knowledgeable, thorough, and will check all the boxes. Really depends on what you're looking for in an OB-GYN.

Terrible bedside manner that left me in tears and nurses in the facility consoling me. For majorly healthy young women, I left feeling like garbage. This is the second time I've had a poor experience, and I will not return. Doctorshave to tell us stuff we don't necessarily want to hear--they do not have to be disrespectful in their delivery of the information or patronizing.

Dr.Cutting was rather unfriendly and rude. I had been sick for about a week and had mostly lost my voice as a result. Despite my record saying I've never smoked she asked me if I was a smoker when she walkedin. It was the second thing out of her mouth (the first being a remark w/ an accusatory tone about my health concern). When I was like "If you're asking if I smoke because of my voice its because I've been sick" her response was "Oh- well stay away from me!". I like to joke around but this was definitely not appropriate given the situation. I was very offended that this was her immediate assumption- I am a vegan runner who has never smoked a day in her life. I felt very poorly treated and was already nervous for the procedure I was there for. She did not explain what she was doing and did not ask if I had any questions. When I tried to converse with her about my concern she treated me like I was a moron (I have a Masters degree in a science field and am not a total idiot). Given a choice, I will definitely not be booking an appointment with her again. I will say I love the NP I see at this office and everyone else I've encountered is kind.
