Dr. Sutton's Bedside Manner was a Bit Bulling! He Made Me Feel As Though I Had No Hope With My Lumbar Spine Problem. Dr Sutton Told Me That I Would Still Have Pain After The Surgery And Therefore He Want Nothing To Do With It! Just Like That. This Happened A Day Before Thanksgiving!

Dr. Sutton is a kind and caring physician. I am very satisfied with the care he has given me. I would not hesitate having him do more spinal surgery on my back if needed in the future.

Sympathetic scheduler worked with me to get me in quickly. Very smooth, low stress check in. Assistant & Doctor were very nice, listened very well and took the time to answer my questions fully. Liked the "bedside manner".
