I found Dr. Sutton to be an excellent physician. He explained my MRI results as well as taking x-rays while I was there for an appointment. He pinpointed an accurate course of action for my care. I would highly recommend Dr. Sutton to anyone who may need relief from chronic back pain. Thank you.

Thank you Dr. Sutton! I had back surgery in July (2018) and have had a positive experience from my first consultation, after my surgery & during my hospital stay, & through each follow-up appointment. Besides being an excellent surgeon, I've experienced that Dr. Sutton is a patient professional, who treated me with kindness & respect. He answered EVERY question I had, in a calming and confident manner. His hardworking staff has also treated me well. I have recommended him to everyone I know!!

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!

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".
