    My experience with the doctor was great, she listened to my issues, and has responded over the past month or two extremely well, so I thank her for her care. Thank you.

    Dr Hutchison is a super doc. She listens and takes the time to understand. She is kind and firm when necessary. I always feel satisfied after our visits.

    Second to none among the countless physicians I have worked with over the years.

    Dr. Hutchinson is a caring, compassionate provider. One of the best doctors I have ever had.

    Non-responsive to MyChart queries. Comes across as unengaged. Department in disarray.

    Friendly, caring, knowledgeable, and takes her time to answer all my questions. She diagnosed my rare disorder and was truly a lifesaver. She's definitely worth the time and trouble to travel from Washington State to have as a physician.

    Dr. Hutchinson is the most compassionate dr I have ever have been to. She has gone above and beyond to make sure I got the care I need to have a better quality of life for my condition. I am very grateful to have her as a physician.

    I have been Dr. Hutchinson's patient for several years, and, simply put, I just love her. She listens carefully and summarizes what I've told her to be sure that she's heard me correctly. I feel as if she bases her recommendations regarding my treatment based not only her amazing expertise but also on my input.

    Dr. Hutchison left me feeling seen and heard as a medical case as well as a human with human feelings and foibles. Her "bedside manner" is tender, empathetic, directive and clear. She stays on task, is incredibly thorough in her collection of data, her assessments and explanations. She was careful, caring, very present and very good at explaining her conclusions. I left OHSU feeling that finally someone had heard me through, carefully gone through the studies I brought and had addressed me as who I am. She sent me back into my life with hope, encouragement and definite direction. She is a great gift!!
