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.

Dr. Sutker's Care Philosophy

At Optim Orthopedics, we know you're not yourself when even just one part of you is hurt. Because in orthopedics, everything is connected: bones, joints, ligaments, and cartilage. We're connected too. Our doctors cover every bone in the body and we work together as a team for our patients. We call our approach - Combined Strength, and we use it to get you back to you.
