  1. Dr. Hutchinson is seriously the best doctor ever. I have never been more impressed with the care I received. I wish that I could have all of my children under his care, but unfortunately I’m now stuck in El Paso. He really loves his work. When he was with Hutchinson and Hanna he had his own ultrasound machine (I’m not sure if he does at this new practice) and when I asked him why he does ultrasounds at every appointment he told me it was partly because he had the machine..and partly because he just loved seeing babies. He was ALWAYS in a great mood and always made me feel comfortable and relaxed. When you heard him talk about the babies he delivered, you could tell that even after so many years of doing this, he still loves it. The best part though had to be in the delivery room. When he stepped in the room he immediately stood up straighter..he moved really quickly and was completely calm and sure of himself. He literally looked like a superhero, completely in his element. I would trust my babies to Dr. Hutchinson again and again. I looked forward to every appointment and didn’t have a single bad experience with him. He’s the best you can get and Lexington is lucking to have him!

  2. I recently had a partial hysterectomy. Having never had surgery before, it was a scary thought. In his office, Dr. Hutchinson took time to explain the procedure: where, when, why and how. At the hospital, the staff was so caring and patient with me and my family, and Dr. Hutchinson performed this surgery with epxertise! He was so caring and my family was impressed with the way he met with them while I was in recovery and put them at ease. I am about 8 weeks out and was back to work after a week, and now back to Zumba! LOL! I highly recommend Dr. Hutchinson for all your OB care!

  3. I work on the women’s surgical floor at LMC and we’re thrilled to have Dr Hutchinson join us. He’s a gentleman whose expertise and experience combined with his respect for both patients and nurses, make collaborative care a reality and joy!

  4. He is simply the best!! When I was giving up on why I was in so much pain all the time he took the time to figure it out. I have never known such a amazing doctor since. Thank you doc for being a caring person. All doctors should look up to you.

  5. Doctor Hutchinson is hands down the best doctor I have ever been to. He is very honest, caring and all about his patients. He has delivered both of my children and I am forever thankful, I was recently told he was no longer delivering babies and that made me extremely sad, no other doctor could ever spoil me as much as he did . Provides excellent care and service !

  6. I have been seeing Dr. Hutchinson since the day he delivered my first child over 22 1/2 years ago! He was part of a larger practice and not my original doctor. But we were blessed because he was the doctor on call when I went in to labor. AS soon as he stepped in the room, I knew he would be my doctor forever. I changed doctors the next day and have followed him ever since. He really is as wonderful as everyone says he is! Calm, caring, sweet, smart, skillful and geniunely loves his patients and his job. Thank goodness he is still practicing or I would be lost! There is no one – I mean no one – I would ever trust more than Dr. Hutch. He is the best as all of his patients know first hand!

  7. I love Dr. Hutchinson!! I have been seeing him since 1988 and will follow him to the end of the earth. Lol. He has done many procedures on me having children(c-sections), tubes tied, hysterectomy, bladder tack and he even found my melanoma. I cannot say enough about how much I appreciate and trust his advise. I also love his humor.

  8. Dr. H really is wonderful. My family has followed him for over 20 yrs. I was first recommended to him by a friend for my own gyn care. Later all 3 of my daughters elected to see him & he delivered all 5 of our grandchildren. He consoled us when our youngest daughter’s 1st baby was stillborn, he helped my oldest daughter with emotional issues and he was with us every step of the way when our middle daughter developed breast cancer during her pregnancy & he comforted us when she lost her battle 18 mo later. He even took our calls in the middle of the night when our daughter was terribly ill. Words cannot express how caring & compassionate he is & how he takes time to explain every detail so you will understand. He never rushes you & his smile is so infectious that you always feel better when you leave his office, no matter what the circumstances. He is proud of his family & he loves his work (especially those tiny babies) & it shows. LMC has inherited the BEST!!

    DR.H is awesome. Had him a my OB doctor back in 2001 and he was great! I moved away for a while and now that we are back, he is my doctor again. He listens and is just great.

  10. Best OB/GYN doctor ever. I have been with him now for 23 years. He delivered all three of my boys and every experience was painless and precious. I love him dearly!

    I have been a patient of Dr. Hutchinson’s for the past 13 years. He delivered two of my four children, but cared for me during three pregnancies until I was hospitalized at 27 weeks due to a high risk pregnancy. He is the most awesome, caring doctor I have ever encountered. His entire staff is amazing, and so pleasant to deal with. His bedside manners and the complete concern he shows each patient is unbelievable. I respect his opinion and never want to imagine him RETIRING. Lol!!! I highly recommend Dr. Hutchinson for all OBGYN care.

  12. I have used Dr Hutchinson for 15 years and I just love him. He’s always been there when I needed him. I have had six different surgey’s and he always checks up on you. This bed side manners is so good and funny. He knows just what to say he will even shock you some times. Lol for I call him good looking when I see him and my hubby just laughs because his cheeks turn pink but all aside he is a great,nice and caring man and I would say you will have the best doctor there is.

  13. I just had my third visit with Dr. Hutchinson, having been a patient of Dr. Hanna before that. I must say I can agree wholeheartedly with the above comments. He will be my GYN from now on. And he is a very upbeat person, making his patients feel right at home and comfortable. Thank you, Dr. H.

  14. Dr. Hutchinson delivered us in 1988 and we have our absolute loyalty to him because he is the BEST! We deeply appreciate all that he has done for our family. He is genuinely caring and we never feel rushed. He takes his time with you and has the ability to make you feel completely comfortable and relaxed, in the most uncomfortable situations 🙂 All the ladies are also VERY kind and helpful with beauty inside and out! THANK YOU for ALL that you do!

  15. I have been a patient of Dr. Hutchinson for over 25 years. His warm, compassionate care and love for his patients is amazing. Even when I lived in Charleston/SC, Atlanta and Tifton/Georgia… I came to Columbia for my yearly exams.
    You wil not find a better doctor!

  16. I had my first surgery with Dr Hutchinson and i will say he is the best ,i will not hesitate to recomend my friends and family members to him.

  17. Dr. Hutchinson is, hands down, the best doctor I have ever seen. His compassion and knowledge are evident with each visit. LMC is lucky to have him and his lovely staff.

  18. I would like to speak with you concerning fibroid tumors

  19. Dr. Hutchinson performed surgery on me and he was right on point with his advice, recommendation and professionalism. He has a great bedside manner and is very knowledgeable. As a nurse and patient, I trust him and think he is one of the best in the field.

  20. Dr. Hutchinson is among the best doctors in the area. He has been my doctor over 10 yrs and delivered my grandaughter. I have never had an issue until recently with billing. Whenever I needed a procedure his office would always get authorization from my insurance company prior to the procedure. Not this time, leaving me a balance more than my copay. This office has always been good with taking care of business….not sure when things changed; but, HE is a good doctor.

  21. Dr. Hutchinson delivered my oldest daughter, Erica who is now 25. I have been seeing him for the past 29 years and I pray he never retires. He’s an awesome human being and a truly wonderful doctor who cares about his patients.
