Dr Orcutt treated my varicose veins, with great results . He made the procedures as comfortable as possible. I recommend him highly. He has great communication skills too.

Apr 25 2019

Review for Dr. Michael Orcutt, MD

Possibly the worst doctor I have ever been to, and I've seen a few in my life. I could not ask questions without him getting angry, and he didn't always explain things well. My medical records were full of errors, and not just a few.

Review for Dr. Kevin McCrea, MD

Dr. Sweeney will only work well for you if intervention based pain management will work for you. He will not manage any narcotic medication. If you fail gaba/lyrica, epidurals etc you will be thought of as a drug seeker. I was not impressed. One visit to my surgeon and I'm set for fusion.
