Verified Patient Reviews
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 walked in. 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.
I have been a patient of Dr. Cutting for about 10 years and have always been pleased with my visits. She is a true professional!
She gave me plenty of time to ask questions and made me feel very comfortable.
Treated like I was just another item on an assembly line. Getting information out of her was like pulling teeth.
I recommend her to other patients as well.
Very organized and pleasant office. Doc, medical assisstant, receptionist, and phlebotomists were friendly, efficient, organized, and very good at what they do. I'll be back.
Dr. Cutting is very professional and knowledgeable and provides excellent advice and care.
I thought she was very rough with my pap smear. I had a pap smear done there by a different person there before and it was a different experience. She also didn't take much time to talk to me about my questions.
Love the care I received from Dr Cutting!
Short wait time. Friendly staff. Dr. Cutting was genuine, to the point, and professional. It was a pleasant doctor visit!
Dr. Cutting rushed my entire appointment. I felt uncomfortable asking questions, and the responses I got were horrible. She actually made me feel bad for asking questions! I would NOT recommend her to anyone. I will not be returning anytime soon.
Dr. Cutting is wonderful.
I really like Dr Cutting. I saw Ahdoot the elder for many, many years until he could no longer practice because of a stroke. Since then, I have seen Dr Cutting and am very happy with her direct approach and efficiency.
Dr. Cutting was great! Funny and personable.
I waited in the room to see the doctor for almost 50 minuets, and was hard to schedule the next visit.
Professional and courteous, listened to my concerns.
Dr. Cutting has been my Dr. for a very long time. She has always been there for me and I completely trust in her.
This was not my first appointment with Dr. Cutting. I usually request my appointments with her because she answers all of my questions and provides me "grown up" responses and information about my health.
The doctor is fine, very to the point. If I were able to review the other aspects of my visit, I would give it a zero. When tests are run, you are expected to log in to a web portal and examine the results yourself. Unless you've gone to medical school, it can be pretty confusing. I asked for a nurse (or the doctor) to call me back twice for questions I needed answered and never got a call back. I am all for high tech solutions to help with saving time, etc (I work for a tech company).... but when you are waiting for results of a PAP, mammogram, etc this is NOT the way to go. At all. It is impersonal and a horrible way to treat patients waiting on sensitive results.
She just did the job but wasn't warm or welcoming. Maybe she was having a bad day but it seemed like she didn't enjoy what she was doing. Offered no solace and was not empathetic regarding a semi-scary issue I was having.
She was efficient and straightforward.
She is good, however the front desk customer service need to be more helpful and attentive. Also, I tend to wait close to 45 minutes every time I go to see her. I don’t know why they think we have that much time to sit around and wait. She’s good, but is the hassle worth it? Not for me.
The visit was great! This wasn't my first time seeing Dr. Mary Cutting, I really like her and will continue to go back to her for as long as I can. She listens and knows what she is talking about. 10/10 would recommend. Everyone in the office is very nice, polite, and helpful.
Dr. Mary Cutting is a fantastic professional!
Wait time was about 5 min, doctor was nice and to the point
Great service, quick, friendly and knowledgable!
Appointment was good. I didn't have any major health concerns so I was in and out. Receptionists were pleasant as well as the nurse and Dr. Cutting.
I wish I didn't have to wait so long, but otherwise it was great.
Dr. Cutting is quick, efficient, kind, blunt, knowledgeable, and clear. All the things you need in a OB/GYN. I don't have a kid yet, but the way Dr. Cutting looks at the babies hanging out in the waiting room has her on my short list for when I do!
I left this appointment in tears and feeling violated. Dr Cutting seemed disinterested and kurt during my first apppintment with her. I had expected there would be more discussion of my medical history, previous treatments plans, instead I received blunt criticism. This was not my first pap smear so I knew what to expect, but Dr Cutting conducted the exams without telling me what she was doing or giving me any warning . When I was visibly upset following, she said nothing and left the room quickly. If I spent more than 5 minutes with her chit chat and procedures combined, I would be surprised. Not quite the comprehensive "Well Woman" experience I was looking for.
Dr. Cutting was very professional in her manner, she answered my questions and suggested ways to make my health issue understandable and hopeful.
Very friendly and nice.
Very informative and down to earth. I felt so comfortable!
Dr. Cutting was very nice and she was able to address all of the questions I had and gave me additional information ewhich was helpful. Didn't have to wait too long and exam was quick.
I felt comfortable with her. Very professional
First time here and very happy with this office and Dr. Gave me information I needed.
Pleasant doctor & staff!
I felt like the doctor had bad bedside manner because she didn't even ask me if I had any concerns or questions. She didn't even tell me if everything looked good or okay. I didn't even realize the appointment was over until she was gone. Other than that the appointment was smooth, but just would have appreciated that she was a bit more engaged with the actual check up.
Loved the facility, ease of scheduling, lovely reception ladies, but the doctor - not so much. Saw her on two different occasions; seemed tired, overworked and burdened; both times I had to wait for her for 30 minutes; didn't address my concerns; in fact, she was more concerned of telling me how to use ovulation tests so I could get pregnant "in my age".. Mind you, my appointment had NOTHING TO DO with desire (or problems) to conceive.. did NOT address or treated my concerns AT ALL. Bottom line is: I would consider her for the quick annual check/PAP, but if you have an issue that concerns you, go somewhere else
This is my 3rd annual exam with Dr. Cutting and I'm still quite pleased with her and her team. They are very respectful of your time; I don't think I've ever waited more than 5 or 10 minutes to see her. I never feel rushed and am always given opportunity to ask questions but there's no dilly-dallying either. Receptionists and nurses are great, too.
Dr. cutting saw me immediately and diagnosed my problem - very knowledgeable!
Both the nurse and Dr. Cutting were great. Very kind and understanding.
I have been w/Dr. Cutting since before she established the Physician and Midwives practice. She is pretty much stuck w/me. :) She has one of the best in her field. I love that she is very thorough in her examination. So much so, it was Dr. Cutting who discovered I needed to see a specialist for my kidney's (which eventually led to me having a transplant). My primary care doctor at the time had ignored the problem. She has always communicated clearly with me and allowed me to make my own choices. I am very grateful for her attention to details. This was my first visit to the Lakeridge office and like the others, the staff is very friendly and efficient. No long wait times. (I have seen her in the Alexandria and Kingstowne offices.)
I was happy with the service I received.
As always she was professional, personable, and physically gentle. I recommend Dr. Cutting to anyone looking for a good practitioner.
Fast service and informative
Really hard to talk to. She quickly assumed that I was an incompetent idiot. No pleasantries/ please/ thank yous. When I voiced concerns she seemed like it was pointless to even bring up. Her nurse was no ray of sunshine either. The nurses in the reception area and the women who did my bloodwork were all very nice.
I was very disappointed. She was not professional at all. I showed her the affected area and she immediately asked me if I had a specific STD before. That's a great way to scare a patient. After another minute or so she corrected herself. Later, she recommended shaving instead of waxing. I said unfortunately shaving gives me yeast infections. She said "well yeast infections are better than this right?". Awful. No, neither yeast infections or what I came in for today are okay and she should work with me to find a solution.
Its possible that I caught her on a bad morning; we all have them. Hopefully, this was an anomaly. Otherwise I would consider her to be slightly cold.
The office was very efficient. However, it came at the expense of bedside manner and patient treatment. I saw Dr. Mary Cutting, and she was very brusque and I did not feel comfortable at all. After the nurse took my history, Dr. Cutting did not review the chart with me.She came in and first asked me a question about medicine that I was not on. When I corrected her she said the nurse must have made an error. She did not ask me if i had any questions, and did not walk me through the procedure or tell me when she was going to do parts of the exam. After she was done, she left very quickly and did not ask if I ha d any questions, just directed me down the hall to get my blood drawn. Overall, I felt very rushed and uncomfortable throughout the visit.
Dr. Cutting has been my OBGYN for the last 18 years, and she is straight to the point. I trust her diagnosis and her opinions.
This was my second visit to Dr. Cutting. She is very knowledgeable, and quick. However, this time around I had some concerns that I felt she brushed off. She is very matter of fact, and to the point with her patients, which is something I don't mind, but if you're looking for someone with a softer approach, she might not be for you.
First of all she was Rude, nosy, rough, and less then knowledgeable. I went there for a Pop, which she executed in a less than gracious manner. Then I needed emergency contraception, and I had to convinced her that I couldn't use over the counter options because of my BMI. Then she was too nosy about my divorce situation and why I needed sterilization, she never smiled, she always seemed annoyed. I would definitely NOT recommend.
Extremely impersonal and lacked basic compassion. Threw a possible diagnosis at me and did not say anything else about what it may mean, I had to ask a bunch of questions while panicking to get some information about what may be wrong with me. Not a pleasant experience. As a doctor it is your job to at least make an effort to connect with your patient and give them some information.
Want to be clear, the doctor was awful but the practice is amazing. I've had other amazing nurse practitioners and other doctors. This particular doctor had no bedside manner. I'm sure she's brilliant in her field but personality is icy at best.
I had the worst experience with that doctor. She was very vague with her explanations about the medications that she prescribed, I had to check with pharmacist how exactly to take it and what my schedule should be. She did not do exactly what I came for. Totally failed all my expectations.
Visit was average. Provider was not very personable.
Been going to Dr. Cutting now for five years. Really like her.
it was a 45 minute wait and the physician seemed like she was having a hard day.
Dr. Cutting was professional, friendly, informative and to the point.
Nobody explained procedure to me, i didn't get a chance to understand the side effects, she was not a caring provider at all
She's awesome. Gets right to the point and doesn't waste my time.
She did great job she put attention to my concerns and helping whit all that I need
Dr. Cutting is an excellent and professional doctor.
This was an "emergency" situation, so I went with the first provider available. After I booked my appointment, I read reviews about Dr. Cutting, and they were not good. So I went in anticipating "not good". Dr. Cutting was to the point, did her job, and got me out quickly. If this was my annual exam, I would probably go with a different provider. I would like to have a conversation with my doc when it comes to OB GYN stuff.
Dr. Cutting is a wonderful GYN she's straight forward to the point and very thorough I've been seeing her on and off for years only reason I changed is Insurance changes
Great experience! She was thorough. Helped resolve my issue right away, explained my symptoms to me and addressed all of my concerns.
Great customer service! Front desk ladies are amazing!
She was reassuring, to the point, and quick.
I came in for one single thing and they docked me around the whole time. I refuse to pay for a service that I didn't even bother receiving.
She is caring, informative, and listens to patient's concerns.
Dr. Cutting was great. She was able to address my concerns keeping in mind that I'm currently uninsured. I'm sure I'll be satisfied with the services she renders.
I'm comfortable with her and find her very easy to talk with ...
She seemed aloof, like she didn't want to be working that day. She answered my questions but other than that needs to work on her bedside manners.
Dr. Cutting's staff was professional and very prompt! She answered my concerns and was also professional!
Very professional and polite. I was in and out quickly.
Dr. Mary Cutting is very personable and easy to talk to/ask questions. She makes what can be a tense situation comfortable. She took time to ask questions and answers the questions I had.
I think she is a great doctor and that is why I keep coming back to her
I will never go back to her! I will leave the practice all together if I were made to see her!
As always, she is very professional and answers all of my questions and concerns. I'm been a patient for over 20 years.
I arrived early for my appointment but didn't have to wait more than a few minutes. I can't say I ever "enjoy" my annual exams, but when the last thing the doctor says makes me laugh, that's as good as it gets.
I really like Dr. Cutting. She is very direct, but friendly as well. She knows her stuff! I recommend her to all of my friends. Thank you, Jennifer S.
Office staff is friendly. I was taken into the exam room quickly, but waited over 30 minutes to see the doctor. Though i think she has a good handle on medical treatment, she could be a bit nicer... Comes across as cold and unfriendly.
She was amazing. Explains everything to you, takes her time, and great bedside manners. She will be the doctor to go to.
She inserted an IUD which was the most painful thing I ever felt. She left the room saying she would get a nurse to check to make sure it was in the right place because of the pain I was in. I laid there for awhile and finally when she came back she told me to get dressed. I said that the nurse hadn't been by to check yet and she said "Well, I've got other patients so . . " I ended up leaving without a nurse checking and the experience was so painful I didn't want anyone or anything near me for a month. And I'm a pretty pain tolerant person who plays a lot of sports. This was a terrible experience. She said to come back to her as soon as I was pregnant but there's NO WAY I'm going back to her. I'll find someone else.
She is knowledgeable and experienced. However, her bedside manner leaves a bit to be desired. She doesn't encourage questions and is aloof.
Relatively quick and few questions asked (Both a good and a bad thing). No introductions or handshaking feels like a bad start to an appointment with a new doctor. Not sure I'll be back. Everyone else in the office was fantastic!
She is kind, caring, thorough, and very knowledgable.
Nice and quick, she's very efficient and gets the job done quickly and professionally.
It was good
She was very unfriendly. She was focused on a problem that I told her was being addressed by another doctor. She changed my medication based on one test and offered very little information about potential side effects. I got to the office 45 min early and was seen right away, and when I left there was no onesie the waiting room. Despite that, she seemed rushed and was literally walking out the door as she was telling me that she couldn't speak to the side effects of my current medication compared to what she was recommending.
Made the appointment this morning. Got there 5 minutes early, and I was called back on the exact appointment time. The nurse was friendly and efficient. The doctor came in a couple minutes later and I was done and out the door in 15 minutes!
I highly recommend Dr. Cutting. She was friendly, quick, but also took the time to answer my questions.
My visit with Dr. Cutting was very pleasant from the time I checked in to the end of my appointment. Very happy!!!
Doctor Mary Cutting is very nice person. I like her chamber as well as her stuff, they are also very good.
She listensaid to my concerns and addresses them.
Office is very accommodating and efficient. Everyone working in the office is very friendly and attentive. Dr. Cutting is very straightforward, but she is really good and conveying that she has your best interest in mind. She's great!
HORRIBLE! I went in for a routine appointment and specifically asked that a procedure (pap smear) not be performed. I told the nurse this multiple times. I was going to find a doctor I trust to do it, because Dr. Cutting is notoriously rough and makes me very uncomfortable. I only went to this office because I needed an appointment to get more birth control last minute, and surprise, surprise, they always have availability. I haven't been sexually active for quite some time and was absolutely adamant about forgoing the pap. As I'm about to lay down I tell Dr. Cutting AGAIN not to do it and she says she won't. 15 minutes of pain later she tosses me a sanitary napkin and confirms that she did exactly what I told her not to. As a woman when I say no, that means NO. I bled for 12 hours! When I voiced my outrage they didn't care one ounce. I left crying and humiliated. This experience makes me understand why woman avoid going to the OB/GYN, ultimately putting their health at risk. I put aside my first poor experience with this place and it only got worse. Heed the bad reviews and stay away!!!
She's a wonderful physician, very down to earth!
Overall, my experience at the clinic was very good - the receptionist and the nurse were attentive and warm. Dr. Cutting came in, asked if I was here for an annual pap smear, did the procedure, and left. She didn't introduce herself or ask my name. She didn't ask if I had any questions or concerns, and she probably spent all of 3 minutes in the room with me. I may try to switch to another doctor within the same clinic.
I felt that she was cold, judgmental, unresponsive, negative and generally unpleasant. I will not go back to her.
I wish the doctor had been more sensitive to my health concerns. By pushing them away so quickly, it made me feel unvalidated.
Everyone in the office was nice and the Dr was knowledgeable. This was the first time in 15 years I had a pelvic exam, pap smear without screaming in pain from the position you have to get into due to me herniated disc. Well done! I won't avoid appointments any more.
I've been in and out of this practice 4 times in the past month for a UTI. While it's not the end of the world as far as medical issues go, it is frustrating and uncomfortable. After seeing a few nice PAs and nurses for my first 3 visits, this week I saw Dr. Cutting. Everything people say about her terrible bedside manner is true. She was very abrupt, dismissive and spent fewer than 10 minutes with me. I don't think I finished a single one of my sentences as I spoke with her-- she cut me off each time and could not have appeared less interested in my medical issue. I will not schedule an appointment with her again.
Overall the visit and examination went okay but the pap smear test was very rough and very uncomfortable to the point that I had bleeding discharge all day still on-going and my anus also bled quite a bit. This is my 3rd similar visit with Physicians & Midwives and I've had dozens of pap tests in my life but this is the first time that I had bleeding and discomforting pain in my lower abdomen. I hope other patients won't experience this.
She's a wonderful doctor. She put my worries at ease. The visit was quick and radiology was ordered. I feel confident that she can address any problems that may arise.
Please save yourself the time and energy and do not go to Dr. Cutter. She has no bedside manner and didn't even take the time to listen to my concerns. Horrible visit and I will not be going back.
I felt like I was treated more like a medical chart than a patient. I tried to ask questions about alternate options and was cut off and just felt like I wasn't treated as a person with feelings or emotions who might be hurt by being called obese within seconds of walking in the door. I won't be returning.
She is very knowledgeable and very blunt.
Dr. Cutting was extremely efficient, knowledgeable, and helpful. Her answers were short but she addressed all of my concerns very well. The office staff was also very friendly and competent. I waited for about 30 minutes but they were great about communicating why I was waiting and they were clearly working to call me back as quickly as possible. Overall great experience!
I have been going to Dr Cutting for 25 years - I would highly recommend her.
She seems nice enough, but I have never had a gynecological exam cause excruciating pain before. I felt like I was being ripped open, and she didn't do anything to help. In fact, I truly believe she caused the pain by selecting the wrong size scapula and opening it to the maximum point. Sorry if that is graphic, but if you don't like pain, please avoid.
great visit. very efficient.
Made me wait a very long time. Then she spent little time with me. Did not let me fully describe my symptoms and when I asked would could be some of the potential causes for my symptoms she said she did not know.
Short and to the point. Fine with me.
My appointment went well today with Dr. Cutting. Went in thinking I knew what I wanted to do and she politely and professionally let me know why she disagreed with my assessment. Even with a change of plan they were extremely accommodating and went ahead with a basic procedure that other offices would have required me to reschedule for. If read some reviews that state she lacks in beside manner and I would disagree- felt well taken care of by all staff in the facility!
Dr. Cutting and her staff were wonderful.
She barely spends any time with you. I still had question when I saw her walk out of the room. She knows what she is doing but I was with her for less than 5 mins. There were lot of things I wanted to ask her but she was done with me. I don't think I'll be seeing her again.
I've read a lot of negative reviews about Dr. Cutting's bedside manner and speed, but I did not have a problem with this. Yes, the appoint was short, but I didn't feel rushed. She asked why I was there, I told her it was my yearly appt and I also had a question. She asked some questions related to my concern and provided her feedback. She then proceeded with the exam. She wasn't trying to be my best friend, but I don't need that from my doctor. She was attentive to my needs, and I was finished quickly.
Dr. Cutting was attentive and seemed focused on helping me
the office is very professional. I had no wait time. The doctor was pleasant but I have been to others in the practice that were more involved. Overall I was well taken care of.
I did not enjoy my visit. I spent more time waiting then being treated. I was cut off from expressing my concerns. Bed side manner leaves room to be desired.
they were very professional, and very prompt, the visit was a little brief,
Appointment was super quick and efficient.
Dr. Cutting is a fantastic physician.
She was very straight and to the point, however she asked no questions about my lifestyle but just went through the motions of the lab work that I had requested to be done. In my opinion, asking basic questions of your patient is a basic part of being a doctor, but I felt like this doctor just wanted to get out of the office as soon as possible. I did not feel taken care of as a patient, even though her techniques during the procedure were well practiced and smooth.
The waiting room is drab and a little uncomfortable for a gynecologist's office but the nurse and receptionist were wonderfully nice. Dr. Cutting was straight forward but seemed a bit rushed. She was very cordial and on a medical stand point was very good. I'd go to see her again if my doctor wasn't available.
She is always available to listen and talk to me about any issues or concerns I have and gives advise.
She was very knowledgeable and informative
Dr. Cutting is a fantastic physician. I have been a patient of hers for years and have always known my health is in excellent hands.
The front desk staff, Nurse and Phlebotomist were amazing. The provider didn't reach my expectations. I was already uncomfortable due to the reason for my visit and she made it worse. Her bedside manner was awful and I felt rushed. She didn't explain what she was doing until I asked her a question about it. I do not recommend her at all.
Dr. Cutting is a great doctor.
She is quick and to the point. However, I think sometimes it comes off as very cold and doesn't make me comfortable to be open with her. I would go to her again if I had to but would not select her as my primary Ob/Gyn Doctor.
I've seen her before many years ago. She's not very warm and fuzzy but she's an excellent doctor.
I have been going to this office for over 15 years. I liked the doctors but you often had to wait along time. In the past five years or so the service has really improved. I was in and out in 15 minutes for an annual check up.
She was great. I got in quickly, got my issues resolved and I won't have to come back and see her again until next year.
Efficient, professional, prompt, clean, got myself a new doctor!!!
She was straight to the point. No small talk (even when I tried) I don't even think she smiled. I personally think she's over her job. The nurse didn't have a sense of humor either but the Receptionist was great, so I hope it's not contagious.
I would recommend Dr. Cutting to a loved one.
I love Dr Cutting & Zocdoc
The office staff itself is very prompt at getting back to their patients regarding Rx and appointments.
Like any other doctors office short and to the point.
She is an excellent doctor. Gets to the point and answers your questions.
A lot of people say that Dr. Cutting seems a little cold, but I have not had that experience with her. Maybe I'm not expecting her to jump in the room and have an in depth conversation with me about things, I don't know. The care I received was great, she was quick and efficient and did not mince words. I do wish she would have spent a little bit more time explaining the change in my medicine to me, but I know if I have any questions I can give the office a call and get the answers I need. I was in and out within 15 minutes, allowing me to move on with my day.
Dr. Cutting was extremely nice and professional, she made me feel very comfortable and she answered all of my questions. I would highly recommend her, thanks.
I've been coming here for years and always appreciate the professionalism exhibited by all, to include Dr Cutting, as well as adherence to appointment times.
WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO THE CARE THAT DOCTORS USED TO PRACTICE? I am fairly new to area and I chose Dr. Cutter because of her maturity. I am also older and prefer to talk to a doctor that may understand my concerns. My last doctor was like that, wanting to help and heal, that you could discuss openly and feel comfortable. Boy was I wrong about Dr. Cutter.She was almost robotic with the exam process and typing on her laptop. I had questions that I was ready to ask her about important concerns, but she never took any time to ask do you have any questions or concerns as most doctors do or just to have her listen when i was trying to explain something. I am trying to figure out woman issues and sure would of been nice to have a doctor that wants to help. She obviously could really cared less about me. Just a job to her I suppose.Then out the door she went. I was so disappointed at that moment, I could not help but cry. I left feeling VERY let down. I will not go and see her again.
Dr. Cutting did not greet me while coming in, did not introduce herself, just simply walked in and said "OK what are you here for today?" She was very matter-of-fact with me, did not make me feel comfortable at all, and then just left the room when we were done. I walked out and said, "Are we done? Should I leave?", where she proceeded to say "yeah the door is that way." I'm not even sure she listened to all my requests, like getting new birth control, so I'm not even sure when I'm picking up at CVS! I will never use her again. I've had great experiences at Physicians and Midwives, and she completely turned me off. Luckily I've had so many good experiences there, that I'll go back again, but I will never use her again.
I don't expect all of my doctors to be perfect and bubbly, but Dr. Cutting was rude and unhelpful. My PCP wanted me to get a pap as I was overdue, and Dr. Cutting refused because she "only did them after 21." I was 20 at the time. I asked about birth control options and she said she would only allow me to get one specific type simply based on my height. She never did a physical exam on me or asked about my history and I don't feel that her decision could be fully developed without that insight. I would not recommend her to anyone as it seems that she is unwiling to budge from her narrow view of what women's care should be.
I was not happy with the bedside manner of my doctor. The nurse and the woman who drew my blood were very nice and symphatic. I was overall nervous about the appointment and the process of having my blood drawn and scheduling an ultrasound. The doctor was not comforting and did not try to ease my nervousness. She also did not explain why these things were being done or the next steps in the process.
I think Beside manner could be better. More personable and understanding that a patient may have many question concerning their health. Short rushed answers may leave a patient feeling unsatisfied.
Office staff was great at their Woodbridge office. They should think about getting rid of the smell and decorating though. Dr. Cutting was very rude. I felt like she was secretly judging me about the medications I was on and why I was on them. I told her I wanted to try to get pregnant within a year, she only mentioned get off the meds and take folic acid. I felt like she could have given me more ideas/advice. She left when she was done and did not even say goodbye or "have a nice day". I left more frustrated. I will see another doctor next time!!!
My only complaint is this "zoc doc" online thing. The nurse had none of the medical history that I had typed in a few weeks ago and updated yesterday. What's the point of "checking in" online ahead of time if none of the info gets downloaded to the staff?
Dr. Cutting was very quick, quiet, and to the point for my annual exam. The appointment lasted less than 10min. She did not provide a lot of explanations and seemed annoyed by a question I had. My experience with other providers at Phys&Midwives was better so I'm more likely to schedule with one of them in the future.
Prompt and professional. Took sufficient doctor/patient time.
I used the same doctor for my first pregnancy and decided to come back and use her for my wellness check up I needed. She is a great doctor and I recommend her to any ladies who needs one.
To the point, quick and simple.
Dr. Cutting is simply the best. She is very professional and caring. She also offers commonsense solutions to issues as well as medical options.
To the point without feeling rushed, answered all my questions and I was in and out in record time!
I really like Dr. Cutting. She is professional, warm, and direct.
Dr. Cutting is always great... the nurse assistant Pat was great as well.
I've been a patient of Dr. Cutting for many years and trust her judgement 100%.
Very quick and efficient.
Friendly staff, very professional. My wait time was last then 10 mins. I was in and out of the office in about a half hour.
My appointments have been for annual preventive visits, so I can't really speak to this practice's pre- or post-natal care. However, for my needs, Dr. Cutting has been helpful, extremely knowledgeable, and professional. The best thing about her is her no-nonsense, to-the-point attitude; there is no doubt what her professional opinion or recommendation is when you ask her a question. My expertise is not in medicine, so I appreciate the clear guidance. My wait time was kind of long at this practice, but that's to be expected at an OB's office (I was the only non-pregnant person there...kind of low on the totem pole). I'll definitely continue to see Dr. Cutting and the other wonderful staff at this practice.
everyone complains that she doesn't have the best bedside manner, but she isn't your best friend. She isn't there to make conversation with you. Once you have seen her several times she does warm up and I can't blame her for not being super friendly right off the bat. I have nothing to complain about with her.
If you're looking for a doctor who will give you quality patient care, listen thoroughly to your problems, and provide you with detailed explanations of your illness, then this doctor is not right for you. If you're looking to get in and get out as fast as you can, then go right ahead. She gets the job done, she just has terrible bedside manners.
Dr Cutting is always very professional, friendly, and timely. I never feel rushed nor do I feel too much time is taken in the exam. She asks pertinent questions and shares all information with me. I also appreciate that this office doesn't do unnecessary tests or exams and will go the extra distance when I have issues that do arise. During my appointments I always feel as if I am important to them, especially Dr Cutting who can be direct but never puts me ill at ease or scares me with info. I've been with her and this practice since 1985 and will gladly continue.
She is awesome and takes time to listen to you and explain what she feels in going on and how it should be handled.
Fast, pleasant, and easy!
Everyone I encountered was professional and courteous. Dr. Cutting made me feel at ease.
The visit was very efficiently managed. I waited only 5 minutes and was on my way home within 15 minutes! Excellent visit.
I love this practice and have been going there more than a decade. Dr. Cutting was new to me. I had waited a long time to get my issue checked out, and rather than try to understand that, she was just visibly frustrated and somewhat dismissive. She ordered an extensive number of blood tests, without explaining why. I actually did not mind having this data available, so I did not bother to get into a discussion, as she did not seem to me as if she were interested in having a longer conversation. The issue she suspected was serious, and I knew that I had the signs. Thankfully, we were both wrong, but at no time did she address it directly. Please note, from my understanding, she made all the correct technical calls--my review is not about her knowledge. Again, I did not push any issue because I had done my homework, but I felt that both the informing and the bedside manner were lacking, and I had the sense that that was due to my having not been proactive in getting this checked earlier. I will stick with the practice, but I will go back to Dr. Cunningham.
I had to refill out all of my paperwork at the office. They had no record of my zocdoc information. This added an additional 30 minutes to my wait time.
For the most part the visit was fine. It's the follow-up that I have a problem with. I was told someone would call me the following week about my test results but I never heard from anyone. A week to the day, I logged in to my account and low and behold there are test results posted. Unfortunately I didn't really understand them and had someone called me like I was told I wouldn't have had that problem. If I read them correctly, it seems the results were negative but since I clearly had a problem that the doctor herself verified you would think someone would have followed-up to maybe test for something else instead of leaving me out there to dry. I called the office and was told I needed to call the advise nurse and leave a message about my issue. I was just there 7 days before so my problem is still the same. You would think that the doctor would stick with it until I'm diagnosed but I guess that's too much to ask. Back to looking for a new physician.
I'm not sure really how I felt about the appointment. Parking is a disaster, however the staff did warn me. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The doctor did not seem kind or caring to my needs. She tried to recommend me to switch to the Murina IUD, when I asked her about the risks she pretty much told me there weren't any. I have heard horrible things about it and after the appointment without even researching I heard more bad things. She also tried to recommend the Nueva ring or a BC patch. She could not tell me much about the products that she seemed to be pushing at me pretty heavily.
I wish she can be a little friendly. She is very serious get to the point kind of doctor and I felt like I was rushed, didn't get to ask a lot of questions. But she gets the job done.
I have been a patient of Dr. Cutting for nearly 20 years, and it has been interesting to have her watch me cycle through womanhood. She is not touchy-feely (which is good, when I put it that way...) but she knows what she sees and gives no-nonsense advice. I am a Type 1 diabetic, too, and she always takes that into account when checking me over; not all physicians consider the whole package.
Great bedside manner. She was great to work with. Quick and efficient for the services needed.
Quickly and efficiently "took car of business", my annual exam without making me feel rushed. Inspired confidence and answered all my questions. What a great doc!
Dr. Cutting was thorough and took the time to explain options
My appt was cancelled by Dr Cutting. It would be convienent if ZocDoc could notify us via email or text
Have never felt more comfortable! Saying a lot considering that it was a GYN apt at age 50.
She has been my doctor for almost 10 years and I think she is great!!!
Everyone at the office was so nice. I got seen right away after filling out my new patient forms, and never had to wait more than 5 minutes before a nurse or the doctor herself saw me once they took me to the room. Dr. Cutting was also very professional and offered to do the procedure I needed done that same day. If I had not been on hold with my insurance for 40 minutes, I think I would have been in and out of there in less than an hour! It was a wonderful experience and I am glad to say I have finally found a good gynecologist.
My GPS took me to the wrong office for the Physicians and Midwives practice. They were very accommodating though. They got me set up in the office that I visited without too much of an issue.
Dr. Cutting has been ny doctor for almost 20yrs and I appreciate her professional care very much. I live in Maryland and I have not changed doctors because I am very satisfied with Dr Cutting. She has helped me through a lot. I would recommend Her !!
Maybe I caught her on an off day but she has a very dry personality. I asked a few questions which she didn't even address. She didn't even greet me when she came into the waiting room.
This was the first time I didn't have to wait forever. it was great -- 20 min total. Parking is a pain. Office staff is very nice. :)
I had my first appointment with Dr. Cutting this week. She is very professional. If you are use to someone smiling and cracking jokes, she is not the one to choose as a doctor. I liked her and respected her professional manner. I look forward to having her as my doctor.
Everything was made so easy and quick. The front desk receptionist was nice as was the doctor and assistant. I am a very happy patient.
Great obgyn, good attitude and very helpful. Nice offices and great staff.
Very professional and had me in and out In A timely manner which is important to me as life can be so busy
My yearly female check up with Dr. Cutting was just what I was looking for, quick & efficient! My only gripe about the experience concerns the young, presumably inexperienced Dr.'s asst/nurse who triaged me.... She felt the need to loudly announce my weight in the office hallway, so I enlightened her by explaining that NO woman appreciates that! (Just write down my weight - & if I want to know it, I'll look down at the scale display, duh!)
Very kind bedside manner, carried a comfortable conversation with me! I didn't feel comfortable asking all the questions I needed to ask, as I got shot down quickly after bringing up one concern.
The check-in process was fairly quick and the office visit was efficient. The doctor was somewhat terse, but she listened to my concerns and addressed them. However, after my appointment, office staff obtained information from a pharmacy that I had not used in at least a year and left private information on the voicemail of a friend of mine, despite the fact that I had not authorized the office to leave information at that number or share my information with any other individuals. The office could not provide an adequate explanation for why the nurses' actions were within patient privacy laws.
Dr. Cutting is straight to the point. Not very talkative, but does her job well.
Dr. Cutting is excellent! I find her thorough, efficient while bring friendly. A community member that cares about her parients.
I've gone to Mary before and she is professional, effective as a doctor and good at her job, kind, and efficient.
She was very professional and straightforward. The staff was friendly and efficient.
She was direct and straight forward and informative.
The office accommodated me even though I inadvertently scheduled my appointment in the wrong office! Everyone worked together to make my time worthwhile. Truly wonderful! Nichole and the front office staff are terrific!! Thanks!!
She was very professional.
The front office and nurses were pleasant as always. Dr. Cutting was great. I was in and out in no time.
She was wonderful. Very nice and professional.
Not very pleasant. Mary Cutting, MD didn't help me feel comfortable. If you want a doctor that listens, cares, or makes you feel better Cutting isn't the one. She walked in and left the same way.
She was informative but extremely unfriendly. I did not feel comfortable during my visit. I will plan to see a different doctor at my next visit.
Professional and friendly
Dr. Cutting has been very professional and this entire practice (Physicians and midwives practice) is spectacular!!!!
I like being able to do forms, update health history online.
I was pleased as usual.
She is super considerate and helpful.
Dr. Cutting has a very reserved manor-she is all about business. I appreciate this quality and really prefer it in a GYN.
Very straight forward, which was great. Did everything during one visit, which would usually be stretched out into a few appointments.
She gets her appointments done quick and easy, but isn't very sociable. Doesn't seem like her personality to socialize with everyone. She's good otherwise.
As always she is efficient and empathetic, answering any questions I have and is very personable and easy to talk with.
Ms. Cutting and her staff were great! As most women know, sometimes a trip to the OB-GYN can be quite uncomfortable. Well, not with this team. The front desk staff were very professional, the nurse assistant was personable, and the doctor was a professional...all of the things that I needed for treatment. I like this staff and would recommend her to anyone who is seeking an OB-GYN. Thanks for everything.
Short and sweet!
Excellent bedside manner, minimal waiting time, and prompt and professional attention to patient.
She was GREAT, would definitely she her again!!
My appt was at 2:15 I was leaving appointment finished by 2:45. Great start to the weekend!
The visit was very good. The only thing that I would rate negatively was that I had to fill out a form after I had already filled everything out here before I went.
I was having unusual irregular cycles and after blood work was done the technician at this office found that I had polycysts in my ovaries and informed me the doctor would call me. She never called me and merely sent a care review saying that I had polycysts in my ovaries. I called and left voicemails and sent an email message requesting a call back, which I never received. Not surprisingly I will be looking for a new ob-gyn.
She is very thorough and looks at your whole medical history not just the GYN part. Very impressed.
I've been going to Dr. Mary Cutting now for over six months, and I would recommend her to others. She isn't the type to chat you up about this-and-that or make small talk, so if you're looking for that sort of friendly/gabby bond with your doctor, then her quieter style might not be for you. But I appreciate that she takes my questions and answers them clearly and simply without a lot of white noise in between, she's professional throughout and very courteous. I also have had wonderful experiences with every single nurse at her Woodbridge/Lake Ridge location! Met with Pat today and she was extremely warm and friendly.
She was nice and very professional. Very smart. She was not warm and fuzzy. I thought it was odd she didn't have an assistant in the room with us during my exam. She finished the whole exam in under 5 mins which is positive because who likes GYN exams? Was convenient that she has a lab in her office for drawing blood after your exam. Overall I was satisfied and will continue to see her.
The wait time at this office has always been awful. I have visited this office twice, and i do not plan to go back. I arrive the recommended 20 minutes early and always end up having to wait the 20 minutes after my appointment time before i am seen. Doctor Cutting's bedside manner certainly leaves something to be desired. Guess she didn't want to be there that day or something. Of course, like most doc's she made small talk, but not very much and didn't not seem interested in listening to my reply. I don't recommend this office or this doctor.
Very good Doctor
Dr. Cutting is always courteous and professional but at the same time has a very friendly manor. I like that combination. It puts me at ease and makes it easier to talk to her about any issues I need to discuss.
I was reading reviews before the appointment and was expecting some cold woman. In reality, she is very nice and willing to listen to your concerns. She is prompt and professional.
I've been a patient of Dr. Cutting for over twenty years. She's professional, knowledgeable, and pleasant. What more could you ask for? I highly recommend her.
Dr. Cutting was very professional and knowledgeable, but also very curt and direct. There was no small talk or brief conversation - seemed like just a straight question and answer session, then exam. She entered the room immediately asking me medical questions, rather than saying hello. She treated me well and performed all routine procedures fine, but I would have preferred if she had made at least a small effort to connect on a personal level.
Dr. Cutting is my favorite doctor. She sent in my prescription right from the office. Always takes time to talk to me, and I appreciate that.
She's very nice and personable, but Dr. Cutting is down to business, which is great. I feel very confident with her as my doctor. Great professional. There usually is a wait in her office. I got lucky today...only 5-10 min delay. She and her fellow practicioners are worth the wait.
I had never seen Dr. Cutting before, but needed to transition as the doctor I had been seeing does not do OB, and we are beginning to think about a family. So with my yearly exam, I had so many questions for Dr. Cutting. However, she walks into the exam room, does not shake my hand, and begins with "have you always been this overweight?" I was appalled. I had been having a few medical issues related to weight, but she did not bother to ask me about them. I will not go back.
The service was quick and she was to the point, but it works for me.
I was mostly satisfied with Dr. Cutting and her team until I had a question about an issue I've suffered from for quite some time. Instead of talking with me through my options, she recommended I avoid triggers to the issue which I found to be unhelpful. I moved so I will not be going back anyway, but if I had stayed in the area I probably would have found another doctor who was a little more understanding and helpful.
My visit was informative. It was quick and I appreciate that. I got the problem squared away. I would definitely go back.
This doctor doesn't seem to care about her patients. If she does, her demeanor does not reveal it.
As on the past; ,fabulous physician, knowledgeable, quick and professional.
My appointment lasted all of 5 minutes. I felt rushed and confused that it was over so quickly. And the office was not even busy. It was pretty much empty. It was as if she couldn't be bothered. She asked me no questions about my health, concerns, etc. just gave me some pre-natal vitamins and sent me on my way. What has happened to the personal attention in healthcare? Very disappointed! Will NOT be going back here.
I've gone to Dr. Cutting for years. She's friendly, professional, and puts you at ease. Definitely recommend her.
The practice seems great. I had to wait about 15 minutes past my appt time, but once I was called in things progressed very quickly. I didn't love Dr. Cutting, but she was knowledgable and to the point. I would return to this practice but choose a different doctor next time.
She was very insightful and reassuring, but I wouldn't describe her as warm. She really knows her stuff. I would definitely go back to her if I hadn't moved.
She was helpful in choosing the best care and birth control for my teen and addressed all of my concerns.
She is very direct and to the point - exactly what I was looking for!
She was straight to the point and very professional.
Dr. Cutting was great. She asked the right questions, let me give my answers and was interested in what I had to say. We discussed the options and came to decision together on what to do. It was a nice collaborative visit. I would definitely recommend her to anyone.
Quick and direct. Not a bad thing.
This is my second visit with this facility, and I have not really been satisfied either time. The ladies I've seen were a little rough and seemed uninterested unless I was showing interest in spending out of pocket money like birth control pills or fertility specialites
Dr. Cutting is very impersonal and succinct. I wanted her opinion about birth control and she basically said before you leave I'll make sure you get some pamphlets. I tried to probe her with questions and even straight out asked her "what do you recommend" and she still said oh it doesn't matter just stop taking your birth control if you want. I've been a patient at this practice for 4 years and this was my first unpleasant experience. I will not see her in the future. I could have received more information and a better explanation from Google!
Dr. Cutting was very professional, honest and informative. She was also quick and answered all of my questions.
Dr. Cutting seems like a great no-nonsense doctor. She's direct and to-the-point and doesn't waste your time (or hers) which probably is why she didn't keep me waiting at all. Her staff were wonderful and their facility was clean and organized. If you like a competent and efficient doctor who won't make a lot of small talk, I recommend Dr. Cutting.
The visit was good, the wait was not.
She was kind and efficient. Will definitely be back to see her.
very professional; courteous
Overall I was quite impressed by online infastructure the office has in place that allows you to fill out your paperwork online. I was seen in timely manner and Dr. Cutting was professional and had a nice demeanor.
Mary is a really good, no nonsense kind of person. The wait was a little long, but the center, her staff and Mary herself were very nice and professional.
I've Seen Dr. Cutting Before And Her Bedside Manner Needed Work. She Was Much More Friendly This Time, Although Was Still A Bit Too Rough. Waiting An Hour And Fifteen Minutes Though Was Ridiculous.
She was effective, but did not make me feel comfortable.
I felt at ease. Very nice and professional staff. Would highly recommend.
As always, Dr. Cutting is attentive and informative. I always feel good leaving her office. She is great. I have been with this practice for 19 years.
Dr. Cutting was great. She asked the right questions, made suggestions, and made me feel comfortable. I'm glad I found her on ZocDoc.
Great sense of humor!!
She needs to listen to what she is being told and not roll her eyes.
She does not seem to care. Extremely disappointed.
I think the doctor had horrible bedside manner and also seemed like she didn't care about what I was saying. I would not go to her again.
Very thorough and pleasant, listens well, and provides good information.
Awesome! She listened to my history and immediately prescribed something and set up some follow-up actions.
Every woman dreads their annual exam and at least Dr. Cutting makes it go quickly and painlessly. I have had better and worse ob/gyn's in the past so I would still see her again. She did make my comfort level with the whole thing go up. The office on Kenmore is wonderful very clean newly renovated and comfortable. Nice staff too
The information she gave me regrding my symtoms scared me to death, but that will not stop me from drilling my Cardiologist and Gastroenterologist.
I had a fantastic visit. Professional, courtesy and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the practice and Dr. Cutting
it was ok. It was like visiting any other docotor there didn't feel like much of any personal interest in me.
It was fine. The nurse was very friendly and the staff as well. Dr. Cutting did all that was expected of my visit. No real chat, just straight to business.
Just went for an annual exam, asked about Essure, which is a non-surgical, but permanent way to sterilize myself (I am over birth control pills in a big way). Doctor got all snippy with me, presumed that I may change my mind (I'm 34 lady, and I have disliked kids my whole life, even when i was one - My fiancé and I both KNOW kids aren't for us, and we have been around plenty of them - we are more than happy with our dogs and cats) and then finally sighed and said " I'll have my VERY PREGNANT assistant give you some brochures." Most of which were for non permanent birth control. I said thanks, she said nothing. So I shrugged, walked out. I chose that gyno bc her profile featured pictures of and general lovey-ness regarding her rescued mixed breed dogs, I hoped she might be simpatico (we are animal people and all of ours are resues, something we have both dedicated our legal careers to). I couldn't have been more wrong.
Dr. Cutting went really quickly through everything and didn't really take the time to explain to me what she was doing. The whole thing felt very rushed and like she just wanted me out of there. Also she very heavily recommended the Nexplanon birth control implant over an IUD, but in retrospect I get the impression that it was because it was an easier procedure for her, not because it was actually a better option for me. She told me there were no side effects besides irregular periods, but when I went home and looked up reviews of Nexplanon, I found out that there are a whole load of negative side effects that people have experienced with the implant. Overall I'm not very happy with my visit and will probably not go back.
My visit was very good. Dr. Cutting directly address my concerns without rushing things. She has a professional demeanor too, so I didn't feel awkward talking to her. She read my ZocDoc form before I got there, which I greatly appreciated because I had forgotten about some of the questions I planned on asking her. She also had all the tests I requested prepared so I didn't have to waste time. As others have noted, her bedside manner is more scientific than warm and fuzzy, but that was a good match for me.
The reviews made me nervous, but she was friendly enough, if not a little awkward.
It was my first visit, and so far it seemed ok. I was thrown off a little at first because nobody was behind the reception desk when I arrived. After waiting for about 5-10 minuted I was finally checked in and then I was seen by the nurse pretty quickly - Dr. Cutting came to me shortly after. All in one it was a quick visit with a short waiting time. The staff and doctor seemed nice and I will definitely come back.
She was very nice
I was in and out of the office within half an hour - I thought Dr. Cutting could have been a bit more personal since I was a new patient, but I will probably go back to her again in the future.
Great, the admin staff was polite, courtesous and efficient. The nurses were very nice and related well to my daughter, who was there for the first time and a little nervous. Dr. Cutting spoke to her (she's 16) in a relatable way, put her at ease, but also treated her like the responsible young woman she is. The whole experience was an A+
I enjoyed my visit. I was hesitate because I am used to my doctor back home but I was satisfied and will continue seeing Dr. Cutting.
The office environment was neat and the front desk personnel was friendly and helpful. I was called to the examining room as soon as I completed my paperwork. I was seen by the doctor within 10 minutes. Dr. Cutting was thorough and helpful with recommending follow up treatment.
She was a bit abrupt and to the point but she did what I came to do and did it fast. Can't complain!
Excellent. I will definitely visit again.
She is very short and blunt in her tone, but nice. Not comforting.
She is such a wonderful doctor. She has a good bedside manner and is very personable.
I was pleasantly surprised! Dr. Cutting has an excellent bedside manner that is an oft times hard to find combination of personable and relaxed, yet professional. I really appreciated that after reviewing my medical history, she instantly came up with a course of action. She was thorough and concise without me feeling rushed. My co-worker recommended her and I'm so glad that she did:)
Dr. Cutting was very professional and answered my questions, but I felt rather rushed. I went for an annual exam.
Love the practice, not a fan of Dr. Cutting now that I've been to her a few times for my annual well-woman checkup. Her bedside manner is completely rude, and she is not gentle at all where it matters most. She leaves you feeling violated and cheap.
I have been a patient of Dr. Cutting for years and wouldn't go to anyone else. She is fantastic!
Waited 75 minutes for a 10 minute appointment.
I really love this practice and Dr. Cutting. The office is newly remodeled and looks fantastic. Plus Dr. Cutting is always professional and extremely knowledgeable. and never long wait times!!!
Like her a lot.. Like zocdoc alot
Dr. Cutting was very nice and easy to ask questions to.
Professional warm interested
She seemed emotionless. A little rude towards me. Didn't even answer some of my questions. First and last time with her.
Very professional. Seem genuinely interested in my feelings and health. Very easy to talk to. I trusted her instantly
She answered all my questions and made me feel comfortable in an uncomfortable situation.
She was very cold, and did not seem sincere. It's important for your doctor to make you feel comfortable, especially an OBGYN due to the sensitive nature of their work. She wasn't gentle, and she didn't take the time to ask me any questions. I will not be a returning patient.
She is very through and asks questions to ensure their medical info is up to date. She takes time to listen and I know they were busy today. I usually don't have to wait as long as I did today.
Very professional and answered all my questions- offered excellent advice for trying to get pregnant.
I was very pleased with this appointment.
She explained everything to my understanding and satisfaction and helped to rebuild my trust in doctors, which was a HUGE thing for me.
Dr. Cutting is always very pleasant and knowledgeable. She offers many "staywell" suggestions to enhance the quality of life.
Dr. Cutting seems to be a good doctor. She is very straight forward and matter of fact, so is often seen as short or cold. I found a small lump last year and the specialist I saw told me to stay with her despite this as she would recommend Dr. Cutting to anyone and everyone for the quality of her care. The only issue I had with my last visit was waiting. I wasn't in the lobby very long, but sat in the cold exam room in the pink sheet for almost 30 minutes. This is usually not the case though.
It was horrible. This woman gave me expired birth control samples! She told me that they were okay to take. I'm not even sure that's legal to hand out expired medication! She said if I don't take them to throw them away. She was not gentle at all and I actually bled--never happened to me before during a GYN visit.
She was very thorough and informative; she obviously had read through my chart beforehand, so she was aware of my health issues and could offer apprpriate care.
I was probably her last patient for the day as it seemed clear that she was ready to get home. We've all been there...but who wants to be in the stirrups and feel that way?
I've been visiting Dr. Cutting for many years and have always found her to be very helpful and friendly. I will continue to see her as needed.
Caring, wanted to hear about how my health was and my individual concerns.
Great. She was fast and prompt and answered all of my questions.
Fast and efficient but she seemed cold and almost judgmental. Didn't care enough to introduce herself and while I didn't have to wait long, she spent hardly any time with me.
Professional and friendly....addressed all my concerns and answered all of my questions.....! Highly recommended.
She could be a little friendlier.
I was very impressed with Dr Cutting, and will be seeing her again past my follow-on appointment. She was very clear about my issue, and how to fix it. In addition, she reviewed my other history - and it is clear to me that I need to make a change in my medical providers.
Great doctor. She does tend to treat your concerns as though to brush them off.
Bedside manner was pretty lousy. No compassion or personality. The office conducted annual blood work and results showed levels were high in one particular area. She had assistants call me and suggest I see a specialist for further testing. I would have appreciated a courtesy call from the doctor explaining what the levels meant, potential causes, and any indications of problems. I was shuffled off and never heard from the doctor again. I felt no compassion from this doctor, which I understand is not required but it is appreciated.
She is a great doctor. She has a fine sense of humor and is caring.
Professional, gave straight forward answers to my questions, didn't pass judgement. Support staff were also friendly and helpful.
She was so knowledgable, listened to me and made me feel comfortable.
She seemed really busy and unconcerned with my questions.
First time OBGYN visit, she was very nice. She made small talk during the exam which made my nervousness go away quickly.
I enjoyed my visit with Dr. Cutting. She answered my questions and was very thorough. I was seen within 5 minutes of my arrival so the wait time was minimal, which was a great plus.
she's great, very efficient
Great doctor, very patient and right to the point. I would definitely recommend her.
Very impressed with Dr. Cutting from the moment she entered the exam room. She immediately put me at ease with her cheerful disposition and warm professional bedside manner. She was efficient yet not hurried in her examination.
Only objection I had is that the exam room was cold!
the first visit was good. However, after the bad results of my exams, I was wishing that she had given me instructions or an explanation about what was happening. I never got it!!! I'm very disapointted!!
She came over as unfriendly and condescending in my view. Didn't feel that she was interested nor warm and fuzzy if you will.
It was very positive
Very professional and to the point. Extremely efficient and knowledgeable about concerns expressed.
I've been seeing Dr Cutting for years. I would categorize her as no-nonsense. She answers questions, raises concerns, and doesn't get too worked up about anything.
Dr. Cutting has been my gynecologist for a very long time. I trust her completely. She keeps up with the latest procedures and trends. She is professional and personable but if you need warm and fuzzy she might not be right for you.
She was quick. efficient, and ensured that I understood what was going on.
Unfortunately when i visited this doctor it was a total disaster. At the time i was recently married & i went to her because I was unable to have sex with my husband. She gave me what she called an "anatomy Lesson" as if i had no idea what my parts look like, then she giggled it off and just said its all in your head. She referred me to another doctor, her words were " i don't work with these types of cases" making me feel worse about myself. The doctor she referred actually took time to not only listen to me but explain what was going on with my body. She told me I had something called Vaginismus. She the referred me to a specialist and that specialist told me that what i had was serious and it was NOT all in my head. It then took me maybe 7 months of physical therapy to be able to be with my husband physically. I think this sums it up for me....
It was a pleasant experience! She knows how to cater to patients needs and can immediately sense how to comfort her patients.
It was okay. The office was further away than I liked. The waiting time for face time with the doctor was longer than I liked. She was very professional but a little too robotic - not a very warm/embracing person, which is what I prefer.
It was okay but she didnt socialize too much with me
She was not the doctor I was looking for...
Much better than my first visit. I enjoyed it and her personal attention to my well being.
nurse was amazing. dr cutting came in saw me i asked many questions and she happy answered them!
She seemed to be inconvenienced by me. I had some things that I needed to speak with her about, but I guess she had better things to do because she was in and out of the room in record time. I've never had a doctor that seemed less interested in a patient. I won't be returning to this practice.
Mary was attentive, personable and put me at ease. I would see her again.
Dr. Cutting is incredibly knowledgeable about OB/GYN issues, and she addressed all my questions. However, she seemed a bit rushed (perhaps she had a packed schedule today). Also, I wish she would be less skeptical when I told her that something was not right and that I felt "off." She seems to follow test results, and it would be great if she could give more weight to how her patients feel. Otherwise, she was great!
She always listens and seems to care. Very helpful.
i like her low key demeanor and would wait to see her.
She is amazing!
I thought it was so good. I got the service that I wanted . She listens all my concern . And takes action.
Went to get an ultrasound, but they failed to mention they didn't have an ultrasound machine or equipment in their office at the moment. A waste of an afternoon, on top of the pointless waiting.
I find it a little disturbing when the doctor I have been seeing for nearly 15 years and who has performed surgery on me walks in and introduces herself. Additionally, Dr. Cutting's manner, both physically and bedside, has become more rough and gruff over time. I think the time has come for me to move on.
Very professional and compassionate doctor.
I was very displeased with her bedside manner. She didn't listen to my concerns, rushed through the exam, and laughed at me. Ill never go to her again.
I cannot explain how I truly appreciate Dr. Cutting level of professionalism. Her beside manner contributed to how I can manage positively respond to news regarding my health. Thank You.
Short and sweet! We got right down to what I was there to speak about and she was very helpful.
She was excellent, efficient, friendly, and knowledgeable.
My visit was beyond amazing! I am 24 yrs old and this was my first time to the Gyno. I was anxious the whole week before and the whole time I was waiting in the waiting room. When Dr. Cutting walked in I think she sensed how nervous I was and she handled it BEAUTIFULLY! She made a few jokes. She asked great questions. I really felt so comfortable. She explained everything to me. The appointment went by fast but I left with a lot of knowledge. I will definitely be sticking with Dr. Cutting!
excellent. Very thourough and very fast. Insync with my gastro doc.. Love it
It seemed as though she did not read my information before seeing me. She assumed things about my history (based on my age), and breezed over the topic when I offered the correct information. Her physical exam was rough to the point of painful, and she didn't talk to me about what she was doing. Gets the job done, but I won't be going back.
It was a very quick, straight to the point visit. From introductions to saying goodbye, I was maybe in there for 7 minutes. Considering it was my first time and she was giving me a pelvic exam, a little bit of casual conversation would have been nice, if only to ease the psychological discomfort of such a personal test.
Fast and efficient. Just how you'd like an Ob/Gyn visit to be!
I like Dr. Cutting. She's direct and no-nonsense.
I went to this doctor specifically because of the good reviews. I can't say I was satisfied. Her nonchalant, rushed attitude did not make for a welcoming experience. I understand doctors have very busy schedules. I had hoped Dr. Cutting would be the kind, compassionate person the reviews drew her out to be. She was very professional. Just not someone I see myself going back to.
I felt rushed through the whole visit. She didn't ask if I have any questions. She is very very unfriendly and nonchalant. I will not go back to see a Dr that makes me feel like she doesn't care at all. When I went to see Dr Cutting I was feeling bad about some of my conditions and she made me feel worst.
Superior physician. Answers all questions completely and unrushed.
I've been going to Physicians and Midwives for a while now, and though I have seen Dr. Cutting before, I didn't realize how in-friendly she was. Maybe that's just her, but I'd prefer someone a little more upbeat, personable, and nurturing. In the future there are other doctors at P&M that I will see before going to her.
Amazing! so professional, kind, caring and she really listens to your worries and symptoms. I had also brought in some outside sourced information and she was so receptive to it and even made a copy of what i had done for my file. Such a great doctor!
She was fast and provided necessary scripts for additional appropriate tests.
She was rude and did not interested in seeing another patient. I would not recommend her to anyone. The office never followed up with me. They just made the tests and did not care if my problem is resolved which did not. I'm seeing another Ob-gyn now.
I love this practice!
So fast and easy over my lunch hour! Great doctor. She answered all my questions and was friendly and professional.
Unfortunately, I indadvertently made the appointment without looking at the address for the office. I thought I scheduled for the Sherwood Hall Lane office, instead it was at the Kenmore Avenue office!! Didnt have time to make it to the other office because I had other obligations for that day. Will reschedule. I have had this Dr. before and was very pleased with her bedside manner that is why I preferred her for this visit.
First time seeing Dr. Cutting and so far am very pleased!!
I been going to this obgyn for awhile because of my mother but I now switching doctors. I been having problems and she never answers my questions she sways away from my needs.
Dr. Cutting was professional and efficient, answering all questions I had, but with brevity and not much interest. She was fine, but I can't say much more than that.
The visit went very well; Dr Cutting is very professional.
Once I got seen it was quick and fast just the way I like it! It took a bit long to get seen though.
She was great and answered all my questions.She gave enough time and was great!
She was not friendly at all very rude from the beginning till the end. Didn't ask if I had any questions.
She comes off as a bit gruff, but she's a fantastic doctor & is very caring of her patients. Dr. Cutting really does try to give you information on a level understandable to all.
Waited over 40 minutes to be seen. This has become typical of my appointments here. I am going to research other doctors because I find it very unsatisfactory. The doctor seemed just fine, but my mood had declined greatly while waiting for so long.
She was quick and to the point. This is the 3rd time I have seen her and will most likely be back again next year. The office staff were friendly. The space was clean and professional.
I had mixed feelings about going to a new place and seeing a new doctor after reading the mixed reviews about Dr. Cutting, however they were totally unfounded. I found her to be thorough, pleasant and funny. Maybe not everyone responds well to a little sarcasm, but I enjoyed my appointment with her. I noticed some reviewers felt she rushed through their appointments, but this was not the case for me and she spent more time than other Dr.s have spent with me before.
May be a fine doctor, but her bedside manner was so bad I left in tears and will never see her again. Other doctors at the practice are great.
Dr. Cutting did her job. However, I let the staff now I was very anxious and this was my first visit. When i arrived i said i was a new patient. twenty minutes later the front desk person asked for my paperwork, which she had not given to me. However, she then found what i had filled in via zocdocs. The person who took my blood pressure was kind. Dr. Cutting was blunt. She asked if I knew why smoking was bad (though I told her I literally smoke four cigarette a year on average) and she asked when I had gained all my weight. Fine questions, but I did not learn about the Pap smear, when and how to get results, or even what to do when she left the room. Nor did she tell me when to come back. she examined on breast, I hope the other is okay! I was even sent back in to get my paperwork. Instead of educating me further, she reinforced my discomfort with doctors. That being said, she did her job accurately, but not with care.
I appreciated her bedside manner, her careful attention and listening to my explanation of my symptoms and her giving her advice for treatment and why. And, best of all, she did not rush me through the appt. the way so many doctors have in the past; it was at just the right pace. I plan to revisit in 6 months for follow-up as recommended.
Very dry and didn't ask me any questions regarding my health or potential problems or health concerns. As a new patient, I expected more information.
She gave me all the information that I needed!
Exactly as I expected. I was very happy.
I've been going here for years. She is one of the few that don't waste your time or hurt you. She is in and out and direct with questions that are asked. She is very nice and had no problem giving me guff for my sunburn. She truly does seem to care.
It was great!
Everyone at the office was nice and friendly. It was a good experience, I'll definetly come back for my next annual.
VERY GOOD VISIT, HAVE BEEN GOING TO THIS OFFICE FOR THE LAST 10 YEARS
Efficient, informative, and just the way I like it.
Dr. Cutting was knowledgeable, competent and extremely pleasant.
Short and sweet appointment.
I have been with Dr Cutting and her practice for many years. Still extremely satisfied and have recommended her to many friends.
Dr. Cutting is very knowledgeable about everything OB/GYN. She's great!
Nothing really spectacular that stood out either way.
very pleasant doctor and friendly too, made me feel very comfortable
It's was great, as usual.
She walked in the room & said her name rather rudely, then when I told her why I was there she cut me off & did not let me finish talking. I felt like I was rushed & she really did not give me much advice or even help me. She just mumbled different prescriptions I could take since a previous medication I took made me sick...Definitely not going back to see her again.
She took time to explain things to me and put me at ease.
as usual the visit was made extremely comfortable for me. Dr. Cutting is a wonderful ob-gyn and would definately recommend her..
Very professional & expeditious care.
It was great! She's wonderful and always answers any questions I have. I love the way her face lights up when she moms have their little babies and she catches a glimpse.
She seemed very rushed and a bit unfriendly. I did not feel comfortable enough to ask her about a re-occuring problem I have been having
She is wonderful, inquisitive and thorough. My visit was quick!
She was very quick and efficient.
She was great-I had to wait awhile to see her, but loved her professionalism and bedside manner.
She was professional, not incredibly warm, but seemed knowledgeable. The visit was very quick but sufficient.
it went very smoothly. Being able to submit my information online in advance really saved a lot of time!
Do love her!!!
I think that she is the most competent and educated professional gynecologist that I have ever seen. I think she is the absolute best.
She is very pleasant and friendly. Also conservative with her tests which is a blessing and different then doctors I have seen in the past. She is a wonderful doctor and I will continue to see her for years.
Very satisfied. Short wait time.
She was wonderful and reassuring!
I thought she was ok. I prefer doctors that talk to you face to face instead of record everything into a computer. She doesn't make me feel warm/fuzzy as some other doctors do.
Very professional and knowledgeable.
She's very nice and attentive.
Maybe the worst exam experience of my life. I have never been regarded so poorly by any medical professional.
I thought Dr Cutting was awesome! Answered my questions and her staff (Nurse Lynne, the folks taking my blood, the receptionist) were all wonderful as well. My only issue was the wait time. My appointment was in the afternoon and I had to wait just about 30 minutes if not more to see the doctor. Other than that, I will be back to see Dr Cutting and her staff!
My appointment felt rushed and Dr. Cutting's manner was abrupt and dismissive. She did not introduce herself or shake my hand upon entering the room, but immediately asked me, "what can I do for you?". I came in for a specific issue but was hoping to find a new doctor due to a change in insurance. I will not see Dr. Cutting again and I wouldn't recommend her.
I think sometimes when physicians have been in the business a while they forget (or never learn) any bedside manner. Many women like myself dread getting pap smears so some gentleness is in order. In my case, there was no verbal warning prior to insertion and afterwards, the doctor teased me about being "out of practice". This after having been told I'm not sexually active. Perhaps she meant to be friendly, but I found her to be rather rude, frankly. My needs were served, but it was generally an unpleasant experience.
Dr. Cutting was extremely rude and unprofessional, I will never return.
Everyone in this practice is tops in my book.
I have an auto immune condition, I was experiencing severe migraines and I wanted to find out if my auto immune medications were not interfering with my birth control, the doctor straight forward said no without even testing or doing anything. There was no concern and eventfully I had to find a doctor who could understand my problems and concerns. I have stopped my birth control as it was interfering and I have no migraines anymore.
She was professional, but not very personal. Her conversation was very as matter of factly and I did not like that. I have been going to the office for over five years now, and I find the midwives to be more approachable.
She was very informative and new her research on the topics for which I wanted to discuss. I appreciated that. I felt very comfortable speaking with her about my issues and concerns and being examined by her.
I'm not sure why she get's negative reviews. She's to the point and very nice. She answered any questions I had and then I was on my way.
She's been my Doctor for more than a decade and I couldn't ask for more!
Horrible. Didn't wash hands, didn't label specimen. Rushed through the appointment like she doesn't care anyways. I'm switching. Apart from this, the office messed up my appointment and never apologized or gave explanation.
efficient without the rushed feeling.
Dr. Cutting is very matter-of-fact, which can be good. I wish she could chat me up during the exam though, since it is an uncomfortable experience.
I love and appreciate her honesty. Very professional. Explains procedures very clearly and thoroughly.
I loved it. And the nurse who took my blood was amazing. I hate needles and I could barely feel a thing. Thanks.
I would have liked more time to answer my questions. Appointment was great, but felt a bit rushed.
The visit was great and the staff was nice and professional. My appointment was on time and I was able to do everything I wanted to do.
She has always been kind and professional, the other staff who work there are also very good, I absolutely recommend them.
It was quick and to the point.
Very much to the point which some could think that is rude. I felt comfortable with her. I liked that she was professional and got me in and out in no time.
I was turned off by the fact that she had a hard time connecting with me because of her lack of eye contact with me and she never smiled once.
She is a wonderful caring doctor.
Really pleasant office. Friendly staff--very kind about having to wait and about filling a prescription I forgot to ask the doctor about (called back later). Doctor was very good.
Dr. Cutting saw me right away, answered all of my questions and was polite and courteous.
Dr. Cutting makes that yearly visit all women dread quick and easy! Was in and out of the office in just 30 minutes!
Quick visit, but as a first time patient I felt quite unwelcomed. The reviews of this doctor did not match my reality. Very rushed and she pushed/ pulled on me like a rag doll. I have never felt so uncomfortable with an OBGYN.
She was incredible professional, helpful and friendly.
She was very straight-up and to the point, which I like.
Wonderful appointment. No wait time, great bedside manner from both the nurse and Dr. Cutting. I was in and out of the office in 35 minutes. Amazing.
Dr Cutting was kind and succinct.
I went for an appointment regarding a possible vaginal infection and I felt like I was practically rushed out of the room. I felt no empathy and got nothing more than a specimen was being sent to the lab. I have multiple freaking sclerosis. I don't know what having an auto-immune disease has on my ability to recover from infections and I got no satisfactory answer from Dr. Cutting. Never again.
When I got there the receptionist was very nice and gave me a couple of forms to sign since I filled out the forms prior to my appt. They were quick to call my name and take me to the exam room. I used the restroom before my exam and the room was dirty and old. I was actually not comfortable sitting down on the toilet. Mary herself was professional, but not very personable. I went in for a normal annual exam and had a couple of questions. She made me comfortable during the exam and it went quickly, but when I asked a couple of questions, she gave me a quick vague answer and left the room. It seemed that I was putting her out with the 2 questions I had. Overall, it served the purpose, but if you like to develop a relationship with your doctor in a welcoming atmosphere, I wouldn't recommend this office.
Friendly and kind service every time!
I have been her client since 2009. Dr. Cutting is very professional. She is very pleasant to talk to, and I wish she could deliver my baby..but she does not deliver babies.
Even after a long day on a Monday she still took the time to answer my questions.
She is a nice and professional doctor!
It was very convenient to have my paperwork done before I even stepped into the office. I did wait about 20 minutes past my appt. time before being called into the exam room and then another 15-20 minutes before the doctor came in. The exam was quick and efficient, and Dr. Cutting was polite and professional. I will go back for future needs.
Very informative! Really like her!
Very good: office personnel were friendly and attentive, as was the nurse. Wait time was only about 10 minutes. Dr. Cutting has a pleasant demeanor is efficient, and gave helpful feedback. I was in and out quickly, but did not feel rushed in any way, which is just the way I think a routine doctor's appointment should be.
Great! Very professional I was in and out in no time!
She is awesome. Very thorough and helpful!
Dr. Cutting looks 30 years younger in person than on her picture.
Love Dr. Cutting!
Nice doctor !
The wait was triple the time of actually seeing the doctor. Dr. Cutting did not give any feedback about health unless asked. It was a very awkward visit. The nurse is great though.
Dr. Cutting is pleasant, professional, easy-going, and matter-of-fact.
No one likes these kinds of visits, but she put me at ease and made me laugh. I will go out of way to ensure all my visits are with her from now on!
I would have given her 3 stars, but the words listed led me to say 1 star. She seemed nice and knowledgeable, but was fairly abrupt in demeanor.
She is a Professional! if you want somebody that's does a Great job, go see her.
My appointment went ok, but I was prepared for Dr. Cutting's personality from reading other reviews. I did feel a slight bit rushed and that she was more interested in moving on than having an in depth convo about the symptoms and pain that I've been experiencing. I was a bit taken back when she asked if I had ever had surgery and then said oh that must be a stretch mark. Needless to say I won't continue my follow-up appointments with her but instead do more research and pick a doctor from this practice that fits my personality and needs more.
She is very kind and helpful. She is the best I have ever encountered.
She's funny and personable. I love her service. I feel like she's just my doctor and my doctor alone. She does not rush you. She makes you totally comfortable
the wait seemed like a long time, partially because i got there a little early since it was my first appointment ever with dr. cutting. when i finally went back a nurse took my weight and asked prelim questions. tthe nurse was very friendly and made up for the wait. when dr cutting finally came back it took her about 10 mins for the exam and tests. i liked that it was quick, but it almost seemed like she was in a rush to get out of there.
First time seeing this Doctor and I was please the service she provided. Very professional staff and overal visit of 30 minutes maximum. Second year using their practice and I'm very satisfied with the staff and the doctors there.
It was different. I had been with my OBGYN since I was 16 year old. They call SWAT team in Alexandria Hospital. He retire in 2008 or 09. Something I have to get use too. She was ok
Very pleasant experience.
Excellent bed-side manner; very professional and caring.
Very professional and she explain me all the exams , and her nurses very sweet .
Acceptable for something I just needed a prescription for, but I will look elsewhere for a personal physician.
Dr. Cutting was very informative during our office visit.
Very good bedside manner and it pleasent to speak with.
Very knowledgeable. Good professional bedside manner - treated ME as a professional. Dr, Cutting made my dreaded annual exam a positive experience.
I was a first time patient, but I liked her a lot. She answered all questions I had and she was very efficient. I'm a very busy person I greatly appreciate being seen on time and getting out of the office quickly. I highly recommend this doctor.
Very professional staff. Office comfortable.
I really appreciate her as a Doctor. She is great at all she does and the wait is never long. I always leave with great satisfaction in my visit.
She was completely unkind, cold and then insulted me. I would never see her again by choice. I hope to try other people within the practice and have a different experience.
I felt that I have had an encounter with a real professional who knew what she was about.
Dr. Cutting was great as usual!!
Dr Cutting herself was fine and I felt that she did spend time listening to me and getting to the source of the problems I was having but the office has unethical billing practices as discovered a few months later when I received my statement in the mail.
Dr Cutting is very no-fuss. She always answers my questions thoroughly and patiently.
I thought she was extremely professional and knowledgable. She answered all my questions.
My visit with Dr. Cutting was professional, but friendly. She has the perfect balance. She was available for any questions or concerns I had and I did not feel rushed. Good experience!
Dr. Cutting is straight foward and very thorough. She takes the time to go over any situation or concerns that you may have.
Desparately lacking bedside manner. She conducted a very rough, painful insertion of speculum after which she tells me I have a dry vagina. She gave me a diagnosis which has certain social implications and she took no time to discuss any of it. Just handed me a script, then never discussed follow-up.
It was quick, painless, and I liked Dr. Cutting's manner.
Doctor was rude and unprofessional.
As always, Dr Cutting is all business. Right to the point. She gives you confidence.
I have been seeing Dr. Cutting for 20 years and love her. I would recommend her to anyone. She is very professional and knowledgable.
A good dr, just not overly smiley and friendly.
I didn't feel welcomed ,Dr. Cutting didn't greet me like doctors usually greet their patients when you have a new pt! But the nurses and receptionist were very nice.
Professional and friendly as always. Answered all of my questions. Will see her again in one year!! :-)
It was a very good experience. The staff was very helpful; t hank you, Dr. Cutting.
Visit with Ms. Cutting was fine. Wait was longer than expected.
She is always available to discuss any issues you have. After an experience with cancer I can say my visits with her are reassuring and helpful as I progress to a state of wellness.
She was very not very personable, rude, and didn't help with making my situation feel important. Regardless of how many patients a doctor may see and how many of the same cases, I feel there still should be a sense of care and comfort. I left unsatisfied and and unhappy.
Visit was quick. Dr. Cutting was very friendly and professional. Very happy with my experience.
The office staff was courteous and took care of the paperwork quickly. I waited for only 15 minutes before being led back to the exam room. The nurse, Pat, was personable and ensured me that I only had to call her name if I needed something while waiting for Dr. Cutting to arrive. However, the doctor entered the exam room about 5 minutes later. She spent a lot of time with me discussing options and possible side effects of medications. I really appreciated that.
I was not satisfied. She did not explain anything she was doing, it was painful not just uncomfortable and she did not even seem to care.
I was disappointed in her bedside manner. Though she was not rude, she was cold. I was hoping to get some answers on a re-occuring issue, and instead just left with another prescription, rather than answers as to what I can do to maybe stop the frequency of the issue I was having.
I was disappointed to see the doctor walking through the lobby after getting tea or coffee only to then have me wait 30 min to see her. If the doctor needs a break schedule it in. My time is important as well.
Been my doctor for over 20 years. I'm very satisfied
I waited nearly 90 minutes (about 30 minutes of which was spent waiting in the exam room undressed from the waist down with only a paper drape) to be seen for a two minute procedure with the doctor, that is unacceptable in my opinion. I honestly felt like they forgot about me.
Her staff was really nice and made me feel comfortable. Dr. Cutting is also really nice and put me at ease immediately.
The appointment was very quick (which I like), she also explained what was happening during the appt and was professional.
While the practice is often backed up (read: long delays in the waiting room), Dr Cutting keeps me coming back. She's polite, efficient and explains what tests, etc are expected at each visit and what her own personal recommendations are. She asks questions about my health and provides multipe opportunities to raise questions and concerns of my own. She's also quick with prescription samples and coupons!
Dr. Cutting was very professional. The appointment went quickly. In and out (even as a new patient) in 40 minutes!
Very nice, straight forward, good sense of humor!
Genuinely addressed patient concerns.
She was kind and very knowledgeable.
Dr. Mary Cutting was very professional but she was very cold from the get go and didn't even make eye contact with me upon introduction. I was not comfortable especially since this is someone that is supposed to help me take care of my body. I felt slightly judged when answering the basic questions and her tone was rather condescending when I asked about my considering a contraceptive. I will definitely try another OB-BYN for my next annual.
The office is usually very efficient, although I waited a little longer than I typically do/like to.
She has terrible social skills. Yes, I am overweight but it is not necessary to sigh and roll your eyes at me. She never looked me in the eye, never called me by name, never asked anything about me, other than how long I've been overweight. My main reason for going to the doctor was to get birth control, which women can't get OTC, and was denied. Her manner is why I and many others rarely go to the doctor. I will not return.
I've been going to Dr. Cutting for 14 years and she has always given me honest and accurate medical advice. What more could you ask for?
Only had to wait a few minutes before being seen. Dr. Cutting was very friendly and efficient.
She was wonderful and addressed all of my questions. She was very kind and understanding.
Dr. Cutting is super. Easy to talk with and terrific doctor.
Dr. Cutting is very busy, so I'm sure she doesn't have time to spend to be a little warmer.
I read some other reviews that weren't very flattering.... And, I suspect they were posted by women who haven't bothered to educate themselves about their own bodies. I suspect Dr. Cutting expects you to accept a little reaponsibilty for your own well-being, as well she should!! I work for doctors... And I would say she's a doc's doc... Among the best. But, don't be a stupid patient. Do your homework!!
She was polite and professional.
It was great and informative about my options!
She was professional. Not especially friendly but answered my questions.
After reading Dr. Cutting's other reviews, I was a little concerned that she would be cold and unresponsive to my concerns. I thought I would take a chance anyway and it paid off. Dr. Cutting was nice, professional, and answered all my questions. She didn't waste my time with chit-chat and got right down to business, which I appreciated. I will be returning to her next year for my annual exam.
This refers to a visit I had with her four or five years ago. She was wonderful and very reassuring. She made what could have been a nerve-wracking experience much more bearable. I have seen her since, and she remains a preferred doctor.
She was great. Made me feel very at ease.
She's excellent. Always on time and very good at what she does.
Very professional and kind. Glad to have found a new GYN in the Northern Virginia area.
She may not have the best bedside manner (but she's not totally rude and/or complacent, more like shoots from the hip) but I can tell that she is a very experienced doctor. She knew right away that something was not right medically and with the treatment that I had received so far by another doctor.
Been going to her for many years and her office is very professional!
It was an efficient appointment. I prefer a doctor with a warmer disposition.
Seemed to be a good doctor, but her bedside manner was not great. Didn't get to know me at all and seemed a little cold and rushed. Seems like she would be a good doctor for someone who has had many pap smears and is looking to get in and out, but not at all for someone nervous.
Very professional and thorough.
I waited in the exam room 40 minutes before she came in for what turned to literally be a 3 minute exam. She was cold to me and acted judgmental towards me. I will not see her again.
Aweful experience! Impersonal, rough, and distant. Never again! Wrong profession, Dr. Cutting!
She was great.
Attentive. Focused. Personable. Heard everything I said. Anticipated a question.
Dr. Cutting is wonderful - she listens to what you have to say. She is very knowledgable and is up to date on all new procedures.
Dr. Cutting is very "matter of fact". She listens to your concerns and offers suggestions but she is definitely not "warm and fuzzy".
She answered all my questions, was very informative and even gave me some things to think about I had not previously considered.
I would have liked her to be more personable. I liked her ok but didn't love her. I felt very much like a routine to her.
My teenage daughter likes Dr. Cutting very much. She feels comfortable around her. She has a great bedside manner! If I had a different insurance I would go here too.
She was great! It was my first time getting checked up and she made me feel really comfortable. She answered all my questions thoroughly. I strongly recommend her
I thought she was very competent and friendly. Made a rather awkward procedure more comfortable. Answered by questions to my satisfaction.
Dr. Cutting was very matter of fact and quick, which I did appreciate. She also did not try to push anything on me. However, I did not really know what to expect and wish there had been some more explanation about the exam and what I should be asking them. I just did not feel at ease during the visit, but the feeling most likely stems from my nerves and anxiety in doctors' offices in general. Overall, Dr. Cutting seems like a very well qualified and knowledgeable doctor.
Very straight-forward and professional
She was quick and efficient and knew what she was doing. She could have been more personable but that may just be her way.
Pleasant doctor. Answered my questions.
I've seen Dr. Cutting before and always liked each visit. She was friendly and professional. Even after my exam was complete and I asked last minute questions, she was very alert and attentive to my concerns.
Professional pleasant, receptionist and nurses nice, quick, warmed items
Got seen right away; doctor was very thorough, very professional and helpful!
Experienced and professional. Not overly warm, but I don't want to be friends with my doctor. She was great.
she was very stoic and seemed annoyed when I asked her questions or recommendations concerning my health.
Dr Cutting was excellent. She really listens to your concerns and asks relevant questions. I never felt rushed. I was very comfortable with her. I would recommend her to to my friends.
I like her direct manner, not chatty, but pleasant.
Didnt make me feel like i could speak to her about my personal issues...
If you're looking for a drive-though type experience, this is the doctor for you. I went in for an annual exam; the actual exam from blood pressure to 'put your clothes on' was about 15 minutes. Didn't ask me any questions, just got to business. Perfect for a quick, no frills checkup. Would not recommend for first-timers or someone looking for a personable experience.
Dr. Cutting is professional, knowledgeable, and has a great bedside manner. I was seen quickly, my questions were answered, and everyone in the office was very friendly and laid back.
Dr. Cutting was professional and to the point. Not a lot of chatting but that wasn't what I was there for. I'd see her again.
I was very pleased - definitely recommend her to others.
Straight forward and to the point. If you like that attitude then she's a fine doctor for you. Not terrible like some of the other reviews are saying.
When she came in to my room, it was clear that I was already imposing on her time. She introduced herself without looking at me and proceeded to ask me questions while clearly annoyed. The procedure (annual pap smear) was rough and uncomfortable. She could have been less rough and she could also have engaged in small talk to make the whole thing less stressful. She should seriously consider why she's a doctor if she doesn't like patients. When I attempted to ask her questions about irregular pains, she was inching towards the door and stared at me like my concerns were unfounded. I would have appreciated a reassuring and knowledgeable answer, not a look like I was the dumbest person in the world. In addition, I was treated unfairly because of my age. Because I am younger, she acted like I was below her and that my concerns were unreasonable. In addition, the staff was extremely unprofessional. The receptionist was rude to patients and the nurses were lackadaisical, and performing their jobs with the littlest amount of effort. Like the doctor,they seemed to think that my age made it ok for them to act like idiots, even to the point of harassing me about what I was doing this weekend WHILE I was getting my blood drawn. I really did not appreciate any of the staff's behavior and I only recommend going here if there is no other option.
I am having changing OB for the last 3 years because I was never happy, I am sooo glad I found Dr Mary Cutting she is great!!!!
The visit was informative and pleasant. There was a little wait time but thats expected. (This was my first visit, and I plan on continuing to see Dr. Cutting for my yearly checkups).
Thorough and to the point. That is just the doctor I need.
I just felt a little rushed. I had more questions but felt like I was taking up too much time. It was also extremely hot in the office and I was melting!
Very thorough. Friendly staff. Dr. Cutting answered all of my questions and was very sincere. The physical exam was very much to the point. I will definitely be back.
Very professional and easy to talk to
No long wait time. Dr. Cutting was very thorough and listened to me.
Dr. Cutting has always been very nice, calm, and informative; client since 2009.
TERRIBLE. Short and abrupt exam with no room for questions or comments. I was already in pain before I got there and was even more upset and confused when I left. The next day I told a coworker about the appointment and she said she had actually seen this doc and had the SAME experience. This doctor needs to get out of the business of treating people face-to-face and go sit in a lab somewhere in a dark corner. I'm sure she is knowledgeable (although since she said very little, I couldn't really tell) but, her bedside manner was deplorable.
Dr. Cutting was pleasant, personable, and knowledgeable. She made me feel comfortable and at ease.
While knowledgeable, I found her to be rushed and not overly warm. However, my biggest complaint is with the nurse, who did the pre exam questioning. I've seen her before and just find her to be unfriendly and judgmental. I have seen MANY other providers in the practice and have had a majority of VERY positive experiences, so I don't mind overlooking the occasional negative experience. Also, Dr. Cutting was able to give me a sample of birth control, which was helpful.
Friendly, easy to talk to, quick, straight forward appointment.
Professional, thorough, friendly, and direct.
Dr. Cutting was very friendly and informative. Very personable and went over all of my medical choices and decisions! I've used Physicians & Midwives Collab for over 11 years, it'd been a while, but I was glad to see that the staff and doctors are still just as enjoyable as always!
she didn't leave anything to chance, she was thorough.
She is warm and competent!
I trust her, she doesn't waste your time, and she takes care of your needs.
First, I was not able to keep the time I selected on ZocDocs since I was a new patient. I was told to come in 1.25 hours earlier than I had planned, but then not seen until 40-45 minutes after I arrived at the office, causing me to unnecessarily to miss important work hours. Maybe it was because it was the end of the day and they were behind, but I didn't find her particularly friendly. She didn't talk me through what she was doing and kind of caught me by surprise with the speculum. She was very brisk and I left feeling like I didn't get a true chance to discuss my problems.
Professional front office staff; pleasant and courteous. Dr. Cutting was on time, brusque, but very competent.
Very positive - all med professionals listened to me; it was an office of good humour; I left feeling that I was in competent hands.
She was very professional and very knowledgeable.
She was direct, professional, efficient and had read up on my file. I could not have asked for more.
