North Chicago, IL |
Acts like he couldn't wait to get you out of the office and doesn't want to help you get back. I wait at least 45 minutes every time I see him and my appointments with him are "long" if they last more than 5 minutes. I've seen many doctors in the area (right next to UIC, in fact) and they all have the same opinion....the only one disagreeing is Hutchinson. If you can go anywhere else I would.

I have had an incredible experience with Dr. Hutchinson. From my first visit, to my last visit, he has been caring and professional. I have had many doctors over my lifetime and I put him at the top of the list. He takes the time to answer my questions, and explain things in a way that I can understand. If I had to have another surgery, I would want him to be my doctor.

I came to the UIC sports medicine clinic because I had suffered a fall on ice in mid December. I was in so much pain. Upon arrival I was happy to see how kind the front desk staff was. Even though I got lost and missed my appointment time Dr. Hutchinson still made time to see me. Yvonne is especially sweet. She treats the patients with care and a smile every time I have seen her. As far as my treatment I feel much better. My left arm which was giving me the most trouble is on the mend.

I don't have much to go off of since I haven't had any results or anything given to me yet, however it is convenient that the MRI I had done was able to be received and read just a few days later. I will know more once I have the results and next steps!

in Elmhurst, IL |
Dr. Hutchinson was very pleasant, knowledgeable, and helped me get past my injury. The staff was nice. I am very happy he is my doctor.
in Oak Lawn, IL |
Dr. Hutchinson performed an ACL reconstruction on me. I asked him if he removed any of my meniscus and he explicitly said no. After 7 months of rehab, my leg was stronger, but the persistent pain, swelling, and instability in my knee seemed abnormal. I followed up with Dr. Hutchinson, and he said I was fine. I looked elsewhere. After receiving a second opinion from a renowned Ortho, I found out my ACL graft had failed, and that Dr. Hutchinson lied and had in fact removed my meniscus.
