Dr Cutter has examined and treated my entire family. He was very knowledgeable about our ailments (shoulder, concussion and ribs). We will always request him for our injuries!

I injured my knee in a Sunday afternoon bike accident and Dr. Cutter and his staff were able to fit me into his schedule on Monday. His professional and gracious staff lowered my and my wife’s anxiety levels when we came through the door and went through the preliminary evaluation. Dr. Cutter exemplified the qualities of a very knowledgeable, warm hearted, respectful, and totally professional doctor. He put me at ease and reassured me (through his excellence) that no matter how major the injury, he could handle it and we were going to get through this. I felt confident that even if I needed surgery to repair my injury, Dr. Cutter would give me the best advice and direction going forward. As a former college athlete in his late 50’s, I’ve had my share of injuries and interactions with doctors. It’s easy for me to say that my experience with Dr. Cutter has to go down as one of the best experiences I’ve ever had with a physician.

I have been competing in running races at all distances for almost 50 years and have had many "overuse" injuries throughout. Dr. Cutter is my "go to" guy to help me correct my problems and keep me in the game. He absolutely knows sports medicine and how to fix ones injuries. He's also excellent at communicating with his patients.

I can't say enough about Dr. Cutter and his staff. He has taken care of my injuries for over 20 years. Always very professional but more important his knowledge of sports injuries is the best.

I have seen Dr. Cutter for two separate issues over the last year. I appreciate his straight forward approach and explaining all the options to me. I went to Dr. Cutter after a bad experience with one of the other major orthopedic companies in the area. One of my injuries required a tricky hamstring repair surgery and Dr. Cutter was able to find me a surgeon who was able to do the work and successfully repair the hamstring. In fact after discussing the matter with me and confirming that I wanted to consider surgery, Dr. Cutter went into the next room and got on the phone with the surgeon's office to discuss making me an appointment. If (or should the be when) I get injured in the future, I will see Dr Cutter first as he is very sharp and provides excellent and fast treatment.

Received an appointment within two weeks of calling. Received excellent prompt care for a running injury. Dr. Cutter was very thorough in his explanation of the problem and the possible solutions we had to fix it. He chose the most appropriate PT to schedule me with for an evaluation to help me get back to healthy running. I am only a recreational runner, but he took my concerns and goals very seriously! Where others have told me just quit running, he constructed a plan to help me recover and get back to the hobby I enjoy! So thankful for Dr. Cutter and his staff!

Dr. Cutter and his team have been taking care of our family for a very long time. He has provided swift and accurate assessment of our injuries over the years (broken arms, legs, torn muscles, shoulders, back, necks, casts, surgeries, implants, PT---you name it as we have brought it to him). He always has provided all of us with sound sports medicine assessment and treatment. I HIGHLY recommend him. With the volume of athletic and non-athletic injuries we have had----he is on 'speed-dial' for our family. I have recommended him to friends and colleagues and they have all reported back they were extremely impressed with his knowledge, demeanor and the subsequent outcomes.

Dr. Cutter won the “Best bedside manner” thank hysician award and thirty seconds with him and you know why! Clinically very astute, but even more impressive is his kind and caring approach to his patients. He helped me get through a very scary situation, never judged or minimized my anxiety, was just “present” to me while he figured out what was wrong. Office staff are the same, highly compassionate and responsive. Can not recommend this doctor more or say enough about him!

I was having some ankle issues and had visited an foot and ankle specialist but was not satisfied with my care. A colleague suggested Dr. Cutter and from the outset I knew I had made the right decision to seek out a second opinion. Dr. Cutter is knowledgeable, skilled, caring, and supportive. I was literally in the best of hands and feel so much better about my issues. Dr. Cutter consulted with a radiologist to confirm his own observations and suggested an MRI with a follow up appointment almost immediately after the imaging procedure. I have since been referred to a physical therapist and may be able to avoid surgery altogether. I can't say enough positive things about my experience with Dr. Cutter and with his competent staff who also happen to have a very upbeat and fun attitude. Rather than dread going to an appointment, I actually look forward to being there. I will recommend Dr. Cutter in particular and his practice generally without reservation.

I saw Dr. Cutter 2 days after seeing my family doctor for the same problem. He listened very intently and didn't rush me through my explanation of my problem. By the end of the appointment, we had an answer and a plan for addressing the problem. 2 weeks later, I still have not heard back from my family doctor! I truly appreciate the empathy and care he provided.

I am a marathon runner and have seen Dr Cutter for a variety of injuries over the years. He and his staff are the best. I have never doubted his diagnosis or treatment plan, and whenever I have needed further testing, such as an MRI, or physical therapy, he has gone above and beyond to make sure it is scheduled ASAP.
