Patient Comments (3)
in Columbia, MO |
I've sought treatment for my depression/anxiety most of my life & I'd given up hope on finding help until I met Dr. Hutchens. I feel like I've made more progress with her in 4-5 months than I ever did with any other MD over the yrs. Prior to the appt, she read through my med history so we could start talking right away & she'll spend as much time with me as I need, even if it makes her late. She's knowledgeable, super chill, & her staff are lovely. I couldn't give her a higher recommendation.
in Columbia MO |
She is quick to prescribe drugs, without taking the time to understand. She is very pushy with her opinions. She doesn't seem to be concerned with helping, she just hands out drugs and argues until you "see" things her way. Don't waste your time or money, and please don't put your health at risk by seeing this woman.
in Columbia, MO |
She has excellent knowledge of pharmacology which is extremely important. She is friendly, compassionate, and takes the time needed to work through your issues.
