An amazing and caring doctor! He went above and beyond what was needed.

I feel like an expert in psychiatrists - I've seen so many over the years with my bipolar. I can tell you, by far, that Dr. Kuttner stands above the rest. I have been hospitalized twice - once for 5 months for mania. Dr. Kuttner helped stabilize me when I was released. It took awhile, as my anxiety was off the charts. I saw him every 2 weeks for a long time, and then it decreased. He has been treating me for 8 yrs. and I have never experienced a manic episode. He has treated me for depression.

This man literally saved my life. He immediately understood me in our first meeting. He knew just the right things to say. And he prescribed the absolutely perfect medicine for me. God bless you Dr. Kuttner.

I have seen several Psychiatrists over the past 12 years. I have been his patient for just over 6 years. Doctor Kuttner is by far the MOST EXCELLENT. I have referred four friends/family members to him & they are still seeing him. Kind, courteous, extremely knowledgeable, excellent listener, works hard to solve all issues. He has an excellent sense of humor & I enjoy seeing him for my appointments. I would not consider going to anyone else...best Psychiatrist in Portland area.
