She took the time to really listen to me about what I had going on. So many pain specialists treat chronic pain patients like a junkie, and she 100% didn't do this. She's working with me, my OBGYN, and my neurologist to get everything managed well.

In November 2020, Dr. McCutcheon gave me some shots to alleviate some long-standing, severe hip pain. I was impressed at the thoroughness and care she and her team exhibited. The shots were a success.

Dr. McCutcheon is THE BEST!! Whether it's help with chronic pain or spinal cord stimulation she's on top of it. During a recent visit to Mayo Clinic in Rochester MN, I was seen by the head of Pain Management who recommended exactly what Dr. McCutcheon was already doing. He was highly complementary of her!

Dr McCutcheon is a wonderful Doctor. She has always been a very supportive person, however her staff is quite the opposite. I’ve been seeing Dr McCutcheon for almost 7 years and her support staff used to be awesome and caring and that was a huge part of why I stayed with her when we moved away from the Coast. I would fly back and forth to MHC and it’s never been an issue in the past. She has a nurse who works at this practice who has the worst attitude and makes you feel like a drug seeker.

Dr. McCutcheon is Excellent! She is compassionate toward her patients and I wholeheartedly trust her decision making when it comes to presenting a plan of treatment. I've met with Dr. McCutcheon for years and there's not a doctor I have more trust in. Dr. McCutcheon utilizes other professionals when it is necessary to confirm the best line of treatment or diagnosis, to ensure the patient receives exactly what (s)he needs, to be able to function at their highest level possible. Great Care!
