Very thorough, took what I would call a good amount of time for evaluation. And super kind--he agreed to see me even though I have not yet received my no-fault insurance information. It is forthcoming, and he even scheduled a follow-up in 3 weeks. I am so appreciative.

Dr. Hutchinson is a very knowledgeable MD who tries hard to help his patients. He spent quite a bit of time with me during my initial visit and he has a current & future plan for dealing with my symptoms. I first visited Dr. Hutchinson many years ago and was favorably impressed which brought me back to him.

Went in to review my prescription/have it refilled. Was told that my ongoing headaches were the result of my 'being a young woman', and that they would go away with menopause. This doctor is not up to date with the current literature, and ignored 90% of what I was saying. He insisted on recommending a treatment even though "I probably wouldn't qualify for it." It was the most ridiculous appointment. Eventually walked out with my prescription, thankfully, but would not recommend this doctor.

Wonderful doctor - very helpful and comforting. I hit my head on pavement in biker accident & saw him a few days after for post-concussion symptoms -- he addressed all symptoms and was very helpful in explaining what was happening. Highly recommended.

Dr Hutchinson is very knowledgeable. He asked pointed questions and listened to my responses. He deemed it appropriate for me to have an MRI done. (Which he referred me to a place that took me on the spot). Afterwards he took the time to explain all images then gave me a prescription to hopefully correct my problem.

Well all in all, I came to this physician to address my concerns regarding my circulation and a couple of other issues. He went into this long discourse about how we, as patients request a lot of unnecessary labs and tests that make insurance skyrocket through the roof. Bottom line, he didn't make a diagnosis or recommend me for any labs. I had my doubts so I went to another physician and got the labs needed. It turns out that my iron levels were critically low, (close tot he need for a transfusion) which explained the tingling, numbness and circulation issues. I have been on high dosage iron for a little while now to regulate my iron. I am starting to feel better. I probably wouldn't recommend this particular physician

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.
