I was recommended to Dr Hutchinson by my friend. I was more than satisfied with his professional behavior. He answered all my questions and at no time did I feel rushed. In today's world of volume at no time did I feel I wasn't given enough time to discuss a medical plan in great detail. I would feel extremely comfortable recommending Dr Hutchinson to family or friends.

Arrived 10 minutes early and filled out the forms ahead of time as I'm quite busy trying to wrap up a lot of work before I leave for s long vacation. Even though I made an appointment, still waited until sometime between 3:45 and 3:50 to be seen with no updates from the receptionist. The appointment was an even bigger waste of time. Doctor just looked at a book, looked something up online and made a bunch of speculative guesses, none of which he seemed particularly certain of or confident in. Spent 20 minutes in office and 35-40 minutes waiting just for someone to tell me time will heal the issue. Thanks, glad I could throw away a co-pay.

Dr. Hutchinson was kind, but he definitely prescribed medication that was on the extreme side when I get a second opinion from another Doctor. She said that she was worried I could become addicted to the medication he prescribed. He also discussed some obscure personal views about conditions that seemed highly anecdotal and not based on medically accepted knowledge. For example, he said that gay men tend to get female pattern migraines - something I'm not sure is either correct or that he should be telling his patients.

Dr. Hutchinson has an amazing bedside manner, he sent me for a MRI right away, instead of having me wait a couple of days. When we got the results I went in first thing the next morning where we both looked at the results and he explained everything that we were seeing. He uses current day cases to relate experiences and knowledge which reassures you that he is current in his practice. He is extremely attentive, thurough, and well read. He is a rare find and a great doctor.

The first time I went it was about a 1.5 hours long meeting, and we spent more time discussing his work than discussing what was going on with me. He couldn't diagnose much, so he sent me to get a couple tests - one of which was with an out of network provider, which could cost thousands of dollars out of pocket. When I went back for a follow up he said my scans were normal and sent me for some basic tests with my primary care physician. He called about a week later to let me know everything was good with my blood tests too. So while this sounds like it was a success story - I am still having the same problems that I was having when I went to see him. A final call to say 'Everything is good. Goodbye.' is far from helpful when trying to figure out what is going on with me. Overall it wasn't a very good experience, it didn't feel thorough, and on top of not having any direction of what to do to figure this out, I am real nervous about getting a bill from the out of network provider that could cost thousands.

Dr. Hutchinson was extremely professional. He took his time explaining everything to me and my husband and answered both of our questions. We were there for almost an hour. He didn't order unnecessary tests. He has a monitor on his desk that faces the patient so we could read along while he looked up information on the internet (Mt. Sinai site and Web Md, etc.) while we were there. We liked that he didn't just think he had all the answers but was willing to consult other sources.
