Dr. Cuttica amazes me with his depth of knowledge and willingness to explain. He doesn't rush me, AND he listens well. He is willing to tackle the sensitive subjects (like my weight) without judging or shaming me. He and Brenda are a really good team. When he says she's going to contact me, she does. And she is always very pleasant and patient.

Dr. Cuttica is the epitome of what we look for in our never ending search for a top doctor to assist us in identifying issues and treatment options. He’s like a needle in a haystack. I had such a wonderful experience with him today. He was extremely through yet efficient. Given expertise, patience and extensive research in the area, he’s the type of physician that other physicians would go to for their care and send their loved ones to as well. I left there confident in his analysis of my situation and feel blessed to have been able to have heard it from the best in the industry.
