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.

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.

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.)

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.

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.

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.
