I understood that the doctor was running late, but, for my yearly checkup he seemed rushed and did not listen to my heart, ask me to breath, look in my ears, throat or any routine practice as normal. He said, see you in six months and at that point, he seemed surprised that I had some questions for him. Was very disappointed this trip to doctor.... perhaps he had other things on his mind, but I had this appt to find out if I was up to par, not to come back in six months. [...]

I really can't say anything bad about Dr. Hutchinson. He has been there for me anytime I write a note on My Chart. Answers come back within a day or two. He explains any questions I have so I understand. He took my blood test, wrote me on my chart and said to take my medication as I was low on Potassium. I communicate with the office through "My Chart" which I like very much.. Thank you !!

[...] I was very favorably impressed by the doctor's professionalism, knowledge, and personality. He reviewed my medical history, asked probing questions, answered all my questions, and suggested some likely causes for my symptoms. My time spent with him was pleasant, informative, and certainly not rushed. He ordered followup blood tests, prescription medication, and a return appointment for me. I am very pleased to have Dr Hutchinson as my physician.

He could not remember my answers regarding my health issues. He would repeat the questions like he was hearing it for the first time. He depended on my last blood tests, which were taken some time back, for the medication he was prescribing. [...] I have been to 3 doctors in this office since my doctor retired. I have no trust with these doctors.

After speaking to the provider about my husband about his dementia (just starting) and what to do, he immediately assigned a case worker, told me about how necessary it was that I take care of myself and how he would be seeing me every couple of months, etc. Very concerned for me and my husband.
