I was referred to Dr. Hutchins for a lump in my left breast. Upon examination, Dr. Hutchins and her Nurse immediately completed a biopsy, as I had driven 3 hours to her practice since I live in a rural area. They were swift, gentle and very caring. If I ever have any other issues, this is EXACTLY where I am going, no matter what the drive time is!

Dr. Hutchins was very attentive, warm and welcoming. She explained all the options available for my surgery and answered all our questions. We spent a great deal of time with her and I feel very confident in her ability to perform the surgery we agreed upon as a "team". I would highly recommend Dr Hutchins to anyone looking for a surgeon who seems to really care about their patients.

If you are in need of a great surgeon, I would highly recommend Dr. Hutchins. She did a lumpectomy for me and she was excellent. Her entire office made this bad experience a little more pleasant by just being there for us. Great experience with a great doctor!!

Best doctor for a thyroid surgery Debra Hutchins is an extraordinary doctor. From the first moment I met her, she inspired me trust. Prior to surgery, she explained to me the whole procedure that was to follow. The surgery, which would normally have lasted about 90 minutes, lasted more than 4 hours due to unexpected complications. Immediately after the surgery and the next day she was next to me, and explained to me what the operation was, and why it took so long. She has magic hands.

I highly recommend Dr. Hutchins. Very kind, compassionate and took the time to explain my surgery in detail and in terms that I could understand. She took the time to answer all of my questions and concerns and did not make me feel rushed. If I am ever unfortunate enough to need surgery again I will definitely see Dr. Hutchins.

I got to my appointment 15 minutes prior to the appointment time and I was taken immediately. Dr. Hutchins reviewed my file and answered all my questions. I felt very confident in her and knew I could call for advice if needed. I left feeling very good from seeing Dr. Hutchins and would absolutely refer others to her.
