Best doctor I know. He takes time explaining in details my condition and his treatment plan. And he shows that he cares. My shoulder replacement surgery has great results. I would recommend Dr. Lutton to anyone I know.

David Lutton is probably one of the best surgeons the DC area. He repaired an unimaginable shoulder disaster that William Sadlack left me with. If you need arthroscopic shoulder surgery, don't go anywhere else. I thank him form the bottom of my heart for his fine work.

I would never consider Dr. Lutton to anyone. I waited for my appointment for an hour. When I saw him, he barely asked me any questions, nor seemed to really care and barely examined me. I was in there for a total of 5 minutes.
