What do patients have to say about you?

“I found Dr. Dutton’s care to be gentle yet competent and I felt totally safe in her care. She answered all of my questions, provided clear, informative answers, and was extremely patient-centered in her approach. At one point, she said that I was in charge of my own body, that the clinic was there to help me navigate and provide information to help me make decisions. Her messaging spoke volumes to how she approaches and delivers care, and shaped how I think of myself as patient – not just a visitor, but a valued patient. Talking to her during felt like I was talking to a friend, a very well-informed friend...Thank you, Dr. Dutton!”
