  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Negligent Care

My Dad was diagnosed with prostate cancer about 14 years ago at the age of 79. Dr Sutkamp referred him to a urologist because his PSA was elevated. A biopsy determined Dad had early signs of prostate cancer and it was still confined to his prostate. It was treatable at that time, but the urologist told Dad that at his age he would most likely never have problems with the cancer since it was slow growing. Therefore no treatments were done, but the urologists examined Dad every 6 months and monitored his PSA. Several years later, a complete body bone scan was done showing that the cancer had not spread to his bones, even though his PSA had risen to a very high level. At that point, the urologist told Dad that he did not need to see him again. During this whole time, Dr Sutkamp was well aware of Dad's cancer yet he did not insist that Dad see a cancer specialist or get treatment. Dr Sutkamp knew when the urologist released Dad and he knew of Dad's very high PSA level (over 50 compared to a normal reading of 4 or below), yet he did not even check Dad's PSA or complete any other tests to monitor Dad's cancer growth over the next 3 years. In that time, Dad's PSA reached over 500 and the cancer spread throughout most of his bones. After much pain over several months about a year ago, a pain management doctor discovered Dad's prostate cancer had spread extensively to his bones and he referred him to a cancer specialist. They are treating his cancer to reduce the pain, but it is incurable now. Dr Sutkamp attributed Dad's pain to arthritis and did not pursue any in-depth examination, even though he knew Dad had prostate cancer. Dad's life will no doubt be cut short because of this, when it could have been cured when discovered in the early stages. I blame Dr Sutkamp for that and believe he has been negligent in the primary medical care of my Dad. A primary responsibility of a primary care doctor is to ensure their patients receive the best medical care available and Dr Sutkamp failed miserably. We no longer see Dr Sutkamp as we have lost all confidence in him!

Model Physician

I've been a patient of Dr. Sutkamp since he started practicing. I've found him to be a caring person who listens to his patients. By doing this he is able to pick up subtle issues that help him make an accurate diagnosis. He asks the right questions and understands that the patient knows his or her own body better than anyone else. I credit him with saving my life by making a diagnosis based on a casual remark I made concerning what I thought to be a minor health issue. God bless him.

Tired of bad and mean doctors

Dr. Sutkamp is a very caring and articulate Dr. He took me in as a patient in 2004 when I had no Insurance. He volunteered for a program called "Get Care" back then that gave me care for a $12.00 Co Pay. My last Dr's office wouldn't even refill my blook pressure medicine because I had $65.00 outstanding bill. Dr. Michael W. Sutkamp is a caring Dr. that wants to help people. He has been my Dr. for 8 years and I have never had a bad appointment experience. So if you hear something negative about him, they are lying or tried to get something over on him. I can vouch for Him 100%. He was a God send for me.
