What People Say About Dr. Ritu Cuttica, DO
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr. Cuttica is caring, professional, and completely thorough. I don’t need to ask questions because she provides comprehensive information up front and anticipates what I need and want to know. I never feel rushed, but I also value her efficiency in how she conducts the appts. because my time is limited. I am a fairly well-informed ‘consumer’, and I always feel that Dr. Cuttica speaks to me in a manner that respects my knowledge. She provides constructive feedback without talking down to me or ‘scolding’. The older I get, the more I appreciate the value of an excellent physician. I am grateful for Dr. Cuttica

Dr. Ritu Cuttica has extensive clinical knowledge and an excellent Doctor / Patient manor. She is genuinely concerned about her patients and encourages the appropriate follow up so that her patients achieve the proscribed results. I personally lost over 90 pounds during six months following her simple but effective lifestyle advice. Wholeheartedly recommended as one of the best practicing physicians in Northern Virginia!

Dr. Cuttica is condescending and blamed me (diet and hydration) for the problems I sought her help with. As it turned out, there were things actually wrong with me that were not related to diet and hydration. If I'd listened to her, I'd still be suffering.

I have never had a doctor I felt so comfortable with. She is knowledgeable and understanding. She is professional and personable. A perfect combination. The office staff had also been lovely and responsive.

I went to this doctor because my body was swelling massively looking like I gained a ton of weight in a few weeks. Her reaction to it was (and this was echoed verbally by her staff) ‘You’re fat, lose weight’. Turns out I had a leaky gut and mild Hashimotos which caused my body to swell. Stay away from this ‘doctor’. If I could give negative stars for this doctor I would.

Dr. Cuttica is great. She's friendly and personable, as well as very knowledgeable. I feel very comfortable discussing any health concerns with her. While the office is busy, I don't feel like I ever have to wait long to see her. One time I needed to get in on short notice, and I went to her PA instead. She was also great to work with, and I would have no hesitancy in seeing her again either.

I originally saw her for a physical. I thought she was great. I had been to an emergency care center recently. She said to use her next time. I called recently for an appointment due to a medical problem. I was told she had no appointments this week, but she would get back to me. She called back within an hour with an appointment for this afternoon. She is the best.
