I saw Dr. Hutchinson a few years ago for a problem with adult strabismus. She listened and undersood my issues and was very cooperative in scheduling surgery for me. Since strabismus is generally handled during childhood, I understood the nature of the office - it is primarily geared toward children. However, she is equallly adept at dealing with adult problems and I was very pleased with the doctor and with my surgical results.
I want to thank Dr H and her entire office staff for what they do. I know it must be a hard job to begin with (pediatric ophthalmology), let alone dealing with overly concerned parents (me) freaking out (flailing and crying) even more than the kids do. :-) I really really appreciate their calm, patience, understanding, and caring interaction with us and our daughter during the visits. Not to mention the actual work that literally saves kids (our daughter) from being blind. I really cant thank/praise her and her staff enough!!
