Just wanted to give a HUGE thank you to Dr. Darin Sutton & his staff at Carolina Bays ent. Today was extremely stressful for my son & I. His nurses helped me during one of my sons tantrums, which they didnt have to do. Dr. Sutton listened to me vent & cry then ensured me we would find out what's wrong with him. Honestly, after this week....I needed that. Just amazed at how caring & concerned him & his staff are. It's nice to know there is still some kind hearted people left in this world.

I have seen Dr Sutton a few times since 2014. I tried to get an appointment recently and was told I now need a referral since I hadn't seen him in over a year. This is crazy.

I have seen Dr. Sutton several times over the past five years. I have always been highly satisfied with his explanation of my health issues and the way he listens and responds to my concerns. I also like his conservative approach to treating problems. The staff are friendly and helpful as well.

Took my wife to her appointment. In the waiting room for 1 hour and then asked staff how much longer. At least another hour, possibly 2 hours. Explained that could not wait that long. Got no help to try to reschedule. Every visit to this doctor was the same, never on schedule, never any communication, no improvement of medical condition, but great persistence on billing. Got a bill for the $50 copay later in the mail. They must be joking. They broke app, not us. Poorly managed office.

Phenomenal bedside manner. Answered any and all questions I had. He removed my thyroid, a parathyroid and some lymph nodes due to cancer and my scar is barely noticeable just a couple months later . His nurses and staff were all friendly and courteous .Overall a great experience during a very confusion and stressful time in my life .Highly recommend!

His bedside manner is nonexistent. The nurse and other staff we came in contact with were not at all friendly. After the procedure (biopsy) we explained we would be out of town for a month and would prefer to get results over the phone. We were told several times they require another office visit to get results in person. So, bottom line is, we had to wait a MONTH to know if biopsy showed cancer or not! Unacceptable. He wants a follow up in 6 months. Not going to happen. We are going elsewhere.

If you want to just be a number, go see Dr Sutton & his staff but if you would like to be a patient to a doctor go see someone else. ABSOLUTELY NO FOLLOW UP!!! ONCE YOUR SURGERY IS COMPLETED THE OFFICE WANTS NOTHING TO DO WITH YOU!! I AM DISGUSTED BY THE UNPROFESSIONALISM OF DR SUTTON AND HIS STAFF!

I lived in Conway SC for 5 years and had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Sutton shortly after moving there. I needed his advice and went to his practice. Upon doing so he evaluated my health concerns and setup sleep study to determine further treatment. He had noticed initially a deviated septum but was going to see how severe my problem was based off sleep study.After results came in he suggested that Septoplasty surgery would solve my health problems. Surgery went great! Recovered well. Great Dr.
