24/10/12 5 5 5 5 Dr. Sutton helped me at Cobequid this week. He restored my faith in the medical profession after a horrible experience/substandard care that resulted in tragic consequences. The most empathetic/relatable doctor I have ever met. Treats everyone with the same standard of care and explains and engages the patient. He is an asset because a doctor like this who takes a decent history and listens to the patient saves more lives and quickly accesses possible medical angles to help the patient. Thank-you Dr Sutton. This experience really showed me how the other experience did not come close to the care/treatment that I deserved. Your patients are lucky to have you and I will never forget you.  Respond

04/08/12 5 5 5 5 Absolute best experience with a doctor ever; he was professional, caring, and best of all, he didn't treat me as if I were emotionally and intellectually incapable of dealing with my situation. He is a wonderful doctor!  Respond

22/09/10 4 4 5 5 Dr. Sutton is a awesome doctor. I ended up in the ER with a very bad stiff neck, and although he couldn't explain why, he made sure that I was taken care off and took special precautions to make sure nothing would hurt my unborn son! Very pleasant, kind, puts a patient at ease!! Wonderful Doctor!!!!!  Respond

19/11/09 5 5 5 5 The nicest doctor I have ever experience. A few years ago I had no family doctor and was in and out of the ER with uterus problems, saw a lot of different doctors who treated me inefficiently. When I had Dr Sutton he was sympathetic and helpful. Did what he could, acknowledged that he wasn't a gynecologist and his exact words were "You have been in pain for far too long and this is unacceptable. I'm making sure you see a specialist right away" and we went above and beyond, made the appointment for me and told me if I needed to see someone before then told me when he was back on call. Absolute sweetheart.  Respond

03/08/09 5 5 5 5 He was my parents doctor when in family medicine and gave them excellent care. I credit him with saving my mother's life when she was seriously ill because he diagnosed her condition and made sure she had tests to confirm it.  Respond

16/01/09 4 5 5 5 I have dealt with Dr Sutton on several occassions. However the best example of this man's professionalism is the time he took care of my wife who had been suffering with an absesed tooth for several days, due to it occuring during the holidays. We could not get a dentist to look at her or take care of the problem until we had to go the the emergency due to the pain she had. Dr Sutton took care of the pain and had a Dentist come into the office on new years eve to take care of the tooth. Me and my wife will be forever greatful to this Dr for the care and help he gave us on this day.  Respond

04/10/08 5 5 5 5 Dr. Sutton is a very compassionate, honestly caring person. I was under his care, when I entered the emergency, for complications after surgery in Halifax. He made me feel at ease, and acted in a professional but caring manner. Within a few hours after x-rays, and other procedures, I was taken to Halifax by ambulance. I was thankful that he acted so promptly in seeing that I received the proper medical care.  Respond

29/05/08 5 5 5 5 He treated my elderly mother who suffers from Alzheimers and who also had suffered a seizure and had dislocated her shoulder. He was so caring, took the time to explain, took the time to listen. A really good doctor to have in emergency!  Respond

20/12/07 5 5 5 5 My wife was dying of Cancer and her family Doctor would not give her the proper pain medicine and I was talking to Sutton who gave her what she needed and made sure she got into palative care, and contacted the home visitation area and VON. With out he she would have suffered a slow painful death. She was at peace when she died thanks to him.  Respond

19/05/07 5 5 5 He was my family doctor before he went into emergency medicine. I could not have asked for a more compassionate doctor. The first time I had to see him was for a very painful condition in an embarrassing place. He made me feel very at ease, and empathized with the pain. He waisted no time in admitting me to hospital. I only hope that if I ever need emergency treatment that he is the doctor on duty at the time. I have every confidence in the world in him.  Respond

14/05/07 5 5 5 Without a doubt, the most helpful, understanding and caring Physician I have ever seen. My sysmptoms were very scary when I arrived at emergency. I have a bad family history of medical issues although I have not been sick myself. He was very thorough and ordered tests to rule out any serious illness. He was calm, professional and very reassuring. If he were to open a family practice, I would be the first to sign up!!  Respond
