Our son is an D1 LHP. He has been to Dr. Cutter twice; once for a heel fracture and once for some tendonitis type symptoms in his elbow. He was misdiagnosed at our local ortho center. Dr. Cutter always has a bead on sports injuries. He is knowledgable, insightful, and intuitive. Of course, his experience is outstanding. His rehabilitation knowledge is top notch. We live 2.5 hours away. He is always willing to oblige MRI etc. in same day visit. He "gets" it. Go here. Nobody better.

We have seen Dr. Cutter on multiple occasions regarding concussions and other sports related injuries for my 15 year old daughter. I find him to be extremely down to earth, very efficient and he speaks to/ listens to the child. We have always been seen in a very timely manner, received referrals when needed and have no complaints whatsoever.

I cannot speak highly enough of this man. He has an excellent bedside manner, is compassionate, knowledgeable, gentle, detailed, everything you would want in a physician. He is not in it for the cha ching he honestly cares about his patients. There was something he was out of for my treatment that was in shortage and he made sure that he obtained it for my treatment. I highly recommend this man and this practice. It doesn't get any better than this ! I trust him completely! Nice office staff!

I would highly recommend Dr. Cutter. He listened to my son and was very thorough evaluating him. I was very happy with the outcome of our visit. His front office staff is very friendly and efficient. They scheduled us to come in the same day as new patients to the practice. Keep up the wonderful work.

Very pleased with our experience with Dr. Cutter and his office. The office was friendly and clean. We were able to get in to see him right away. Dr. Cutter actually took my son outside with a baseball and glove to watch him throw to assess the pain and his motion. My son had an MRI the next day and an appointment with Dr. Cutter after the MRI same day for results. This got him started on his treatment and recovery quicker which meant less time out of his sporting activity.

I highly recommend Dr. Cutter and his staff. I was seen within a few days of calling about my problem. Dr. Cutter answered all of my questions and his explanation of my problem was very easy to understand. He actually consulted with a surgeon during my visit and set up an appointment with the surgeon for me before I left his office. It was so upbeat, it made me feel much better.

Not going back! We arrived 10 minutes ahead of appointment to fill out paperwork, as requested. . Took forever! 10-12 pages! Waited 90 minutes... about to leave when he finally came in, stayed 5 minutes, said my daughter needed x Ray, left room again to see another patient... Came back in for another 5 minutes, said we should also get MRI.... Said its busy on Friday afternoons? Ok, don't book so many appointments. Doctors are NOT the only people whose time is valuable! Waste of time and $$

Dr. Cutter and his staff have taken care of me through several injuries/surgeries over the past approximately 20 years. I value his medical expertise and appreciate the fact that he always makes me feel that I am important to HCA Sports Medicine. Additionally, his leadership style has trickled down to his staff as they are each professional, knowledgeable, and supportive. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Cutter to family and friends
