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!!!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
