Dr Dutra is the best. His Ease at communication and approach to my care has been remarkable. I was in medicine 35 years. He was more than I expected and his skills & Knowledge shows in every aspect of his care for his patients. I have encountered a flawless experience throughout my thyroid surgery and care. I am happy I was introduced to him and have heard the same great comments from other physicians and patients.
Dr. Dutra is the nicest and smartest surgeon I have ever met. His nurse is amazing as well. They always spent enough time during each appointment and were very caring during my journey with thyroid cancer. Even years after my total thyroidectomy, whenever I have a question, they are always helpful.

I was recently referred to Dr. Dutra for a biopsy on some swollen Lymph nodes, I was nervous until I sat down and talked with him. I often ask for second opinions but I knew he was going to take great care of me. After the surgery he checked in every day to get progress reports on how I was doing. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND, that's a100% SATISFACTORY rating of Dr. Dutra and his fabulous team.

The most personable,caring wonderful human being and an outstanding professional.Some of the doctors I've encountered on my cancer journey might be good doctors but over all lack the basic 'human factor'.Well Doctor Dutra is the opposite.He is very kind and sensitive to any issues and addresses them very quickly.To sum it all up If you're looking for the BEST in the field-look no further.

Dr. Dutra is an amazing doctor. In 2011 I found out I had thyroid cancer, with in 2 weeks I had my surgery. It was 8 hour surgery, so I was the only person he took care of that day. He did an amazing job, my scar looks great! He treated me like his own daughter.
