dr hutichins who I have been seeing for many years has changed from a Dr who listed carefully and answered all question to a dr who is on the clock and hurries out before all questions can be asked

Doesn't like to listen very well and seems to dismiss what I'm saying which is rude.

Dr. Hutchins is the most intuitive and intelligent physician that I have ever seen. Not to discredit any of my previous medical providers, but there is something remarkable about his approach to healthcare.

I am very impressed that Dr. Huthchins took a minute to review my information before coming in so he knew exactly why I was there and what we were looking for. I am very impressed with Dr Hutchins, he explains things clearly and tells me exactly what I need to do. He also explained what will happen next if this step does not work, which I appreciated. While he does not sugar-coat things, he does expain things in a compassionate manner.

Dr. Hutchins is very rude and belittling. He made me feel bad l/guilty for taking a prescription that I have been on for many years. I'm not sure if he was in a bad mood or just has something against adderall but I did not enjoy my most recent experience and would NOT meet with him again.

Overly zealous to give me referalls after just meeting me and not really having a good handle on my medical history up front, came for a physical and looking for a new doctor, as my last one didnt listen and was referal happy to every specialist in Missoula. Seems to be the thing with Doctors these days!

amazing, I have a very rare disease that Drs aren't taught about. most Drs get very defensive when I tell them that and then have to admit I am right. but that has never been my experience with Dr Hutchins

I really like being able to email Dr. Hutchins and his response time is great.

Not sure if it was because it was not his regular nurse but getting my Rx refills has been a nightmare. My insurance provider changed one of my meds to a much more expensive solution and the office has be offering little to no assistance on finding cheaper solutions. Also, none of my other Rx counts got reset so I am currently without some of my Rx for my diabetes.

I believe Dr Hutchins does all he can with the limited amount of time allowed for each patient.

Hutchins is a thorough doctor. My only complaint is having to pay for an office visit and wait for that appointment when I needed a suggestion on a mental health provider. Otherwise he has been thorough on trying to get my medical needs diagnosed and addressed appropriately.

This office has difficulty dealing with my online pharmacy. I frequently have to follow up on orders to get my meds. The staff tries, but the electronic RX ordering format often doesn't seem to work. Fax orders work but the staff is reluctant to do that because it is "not the preferred protocol."

After working in the medical profession for many years I am able to recognize quality care. I was not receiving it from the physician in my insurance network. I am willing to pay the extra money to get a good diagnostician and have my problems addressed in a timely manner.

As a RNBSN and 41 years of practice, I did not know who she was or her background, and felt her present in the room was an invasion of the doctor patient relationship.When I ran into the person who has been there for a while, she told me. what her backgroun was, I still do not know her name.

this was my first appointment, but I feel that I made the right choose to go to this provider for my primary care. it was a great experience. the provider really listen to me, answered my questions the best he could, made suggestions, and referrals all to try to figure out why I am having all my health problems. I feel like he really cares.
