    My experience was not with Dr. Sutker but with his office in Okatie SC. I had an appointment to see one of his PA's for a shot to ease the pain in my hand. There was no one in the waiting room when we arrived, but they kept me waiting about 45 minutes, while they took in some later arrivals. When they finally took me in, it took another 35 minutes for the PA Williams to show up. She did not bother to apologize for the delay. She was brusque and unfriendly.
