Provider Reviews

In November 2020, Dr. McCutcheon gave me some shots to alleviate some long-standing, severe hip pain. I was impressed at the thoroughness and care she and her team exhibited. The shots were a success.

Review for Dr. McCutcheon

Dr. Haskins exceeded all of my expectations. She took the time to educate me about my health as well as leave space for me to ask her questions. It was well worth the wait for an appointment to get booked with her. I wouldn't change a thing!
