Testimonials & Reviews


"Over the years I have suffered from seasonal allergies that have only increased, as I got older. My general physician always prescribed the same prescriptions time and time again and I felt I had hit a brick wall in treatment plans. However, it wasn’t until I went to see Dr. Hutto, a true allergy specialist, that I was able to get a handle on the long-term treatment of my conditions that have now greatly improved my overall quality of life.

Dr. Hutto and her team taught me about the diverse environmental factors that were making my allergies worse. They work with you to decrease your dependence on medications and to make changes in your lifestyle that improve your health. On my first visit, I felt that I finally met a physician who understood what I was going through. From my first visit, it was very apparent this is an innovative and personalized medical practice that truly cared about me as an individual and who would do everything possible for me to find solutions for my allergic conditions.”

"Without a doubt, Dr. Hutto is one of the best physicians that I have known.  In addition to being an excellent practitioner, she is genuinely caring, kind and compassionate.  She works hard studying her patients’ problems and provides comprehensive, exceptional treatment.   Additionally, Dr. Hutto has an extremely well run office.  Her sterling staff is bright, attentive and kind.

I had been suffering with chronic sinus problems since childhood. I saw many physicians and took many ineffective prescription and over-the-counter drugs. I finally sought help from a specialist, Dr. Lisa Hutto. Dr. Hutto took a thorough and detailed history, did appropriate testing, carefully diagnosed my problem, and fine-tuned my medication until I had excellent results.   Dr. Hutto’s treatment has drastically improved the quality of my life.  I have never felt better.”

"Every Thanksgiving, my family goes quail hunting on horseback. It was always one of my favorite things to do but, as an allergy sufferer, a family tradition was becoming harder and harder to endure.

Every Thanksgiving, my family goes quail hunting on horseback. It was always one of my favorite things to do but, as an allergy sufferer, a family tradition was becoming harder and harder to endure. Not only did I have to deal with the dander from horses and dogs, but also with weeds and grass and other falling leaves. It turned into allergic overload! But while visiting my general practitioner, he asked me if I had ever been tested for allergies. I knew I was affected by seasonal allergies but I never knew how bad I had it until I met Dr. Hutto. After getting thorough skin tests at her office, I found out I was allergic to almost everything. Now that I am on allergy shots, my allergies are totally under control and I can’t wait for this year’s quail hunt!”

"Dr. Hutto made us aware in the first visit how sick our son was. She took a personal interest in our son like we have never seen with a doctor. She personally called us at home to see how things were progressing, and has been there for us when we had questions. Her entire staff came to know our son and treated him as though he was their own.

Our son has been visiting Dr. Hutto for over a year now, and my wife and I cannot be thankful enough for what she has done for us. At the age of 15, our son had suffered from breathing problems for several years. Since asthma had been in my family, we had asked his Pediatrician if he was suffering from asthma. We were told that he had bronchitis, and they did not want to 'pin' him as an asthmatic.

After two midnight visits to the emergency room for Asthma attacks we made the decision to go to Dr. Hutto. Dr. Hutto immediately went into action with several tests and specialty visits. It was determined that our son was allergic to many items, suffered terribly from Asthma, needed his adenoids removed, and has a deviated septum that will be removed in the near future.

Our son’s breathing and quality of life has improved greatly. He has gone from a kid that had very little energy to one that is on the school swim team. Because his energy level is much better, his school grades and even his attitude toward life is much better.

We would strongly recommend Dr. Hutto for anyone thinking they may have allergy and/or asthma issues. We had no idea how sick our son was, and without Palmetto Allergy and Asthma, we are not sure where his health would be today.”

"The process Dr. Hutto has in place for identifying my personal (allergy) triggers is very thorough.  I found out that I am allergic to EVERYTHING (except dogs).  To fix the overall problem, I began to take shots to desensitize my allergies.  I now use my allergy treatments religiously to quell reactions.  I continue to improve the air quality in my home and I visit the shot room once a week for my shots.  The shot room has convenient hours and a very friendly staff so, that makes it much easier to go (even if it is for shots)!

I suffered with chronic headaches and sinus infections for years.  After some discussion with my primary care provider, he determined that I should visit Dr. Hutto's team at Palmetto Allergy and Asthma to determine if the underlying problem may be allergies.

Even after my initial appointment with Dr. Hutto, my problems were significantly reduced! At my first appointment, I discovered that Dr. Hutto has been specializing in allergy and asthma for over 20 years; and her experience and knowledge really shines!  The allergy treatment regimen that she outlined in that visit has worked wonders for me. The products and simple home remedies she recommended for allergy sufferers; which have been proven to be the best, also drastically improved my condition.  I began to notice many improvements in my overall health almost overnight: more energy, better mood, improved ability to concentrate, easier to fall and stay asleep, and that is just to mention a few! To continue my progress, I also needed to make my home a better environment in which to live (less allergens); but it is all very much worth the effort in the end!

Once my immediate needs were addressed, I went through allergy testing.  I must add the process Dr. Hutto has in place for identifying my personal triggers is very thorough.  I found out that I am allergic to EVERYTHING (except dogs).  To fix the overall problem, I began to take shots to desensitize my allergies.  I now use my allergy treatments religiously to quell reactions."

“Dr. Hutto has made me much more aware of the environmental factors around me that seem to affect my allergies. Our family has completely changed to chemical free products from personal hygiene to cleaning products…. Now, all we smell and breathe is clean, fresh air. My allergy condition has changed tremendously just from making better choices. I can breathe again!

Dr. Hutto has made me much more aware of the environmental factors around me that seem to affect my allergies. Our family has completely changed to chemical free products from personal hygiene to cleaning products. There are so many natural alternatives, although not advertised as frequently as the chemical based products. It is worth the search to take care of your family and your health. I was the type, before Dr. Hutto informed me, that would clean with bleach or easy spray on products for the tub, fill my home with perfumed plug-ins and candles, use overly scented fabric softeners, and even use chemical based detergent in the dishwasher. The list could go on. It makes so much more sense to use fragrance and chemical free items. Who would want to drink out of a glass with dangerous residue? Now, all we smell and breathe is clean, fresh air. My allergy condition has changed tremendously just from making better choices. I can breathe again!”

"Before I came to Palmetto Allergy and Asthma, I could barely smell and was using a rescue inhaler several times a week to control my wheezing...”

"With my son’s asthma now under control, he was the only sophomore to play on his varsity team and received his letter last week. He is still actively playing basketball, lifting weights and running—all of which he wouldn’t have been able to do without the help of Dr. Hutto. These days his inhaler sits on the shelf—right beside his trophies."

"Before going to Dr. Hutto, my son was on seven different meds, one of which was a steroid that had his weight up drastically. But after Dr. Hutto conducted tests on my son, she was able to reduce his meds down to only two. Our son has not had an attack since. He is getting regular allergy shots, taking his meds and following up on schedule. Because of all the help he received from Dr. Hutto and her staff, my son has been able to play active basketball again. His quality of life has been greatly enriched. He is now 16 years old, down to only one medication and getting his allergy shots.

These days his inhaler sits on the shelf—right beside his trophies. We cannot put into words how grateful and thankful we are for Dr. Hutto. She is truly a blessing to not just our family, but to the medical field, her profession and this community.”

"I owe Dr. Hutto a lot of gratitude because without her medical plan and staff's support I would not have been successful in track and in my adult life. She allowed me to live my dream without allowing asthma or allergies to hinder my abilities.

I was introduced to Dr. Hutto after I was hospitalized for a severe asthma attack when I was 13 or 14 years old. But despite my condition, I really wanted to be part of the track team when I got to high school. I had always dreamt about being a sprinter and figured running high school track was the way to purse my dreams. My parents were very hesitant about me pursing this extracurricular activity. However with my persistence and Dr. Hutto’s medical treatment, not only was I able to run track, but I won multiple invitational titles, state titles and was able to receive multiple track scholarship offers. I continued my running career at Campbell University, where I set numerous school records. Now, that I am in my 30s I still see Dr. Hutto and her staff because they remain so knowledgeable about asthma and allergies. They care about me. I owe Dr. Hutto a lot of gratitude because without her medical plan and staff's support I would not have been successful in track and in my adult life. She allowed me to live my dream without allowing asthma or allergies to hinder my abilities.”

"Dr. Hutto helped me understand that asthma is the result of a progression of allergies over the years. I had no idea I was even allergic to as many things as I am. She also educated me about how the injections for allergies are really the only way to strengthen the immune system and make a real difference in the symptoms.

I had asthma for 20 years before being referred to Dr. Lisa Hutto for allergy skin testing and eventual treatment. Prior to that, I had simply been treating the symptoms, which I believed was adequate. Dr. Hutto helped me understand that asthma is the result of a progression of allergies over the years. I had no idea I was even allergic to as many things as I am. She also educated me about how the injections for allergies are really the only way to strengthen the immune system and make a real difference in the symptoms. As a marathon runner, this simply seemed to be the only answer. I had already been running for years prior to becoming Dr. Hutto's patient. I had read that the lungs can be strengthened from running and other types of aerobic activity and my asthma did stabilize a great deal after I slowly increased my workouts. After receiving my treatments, it is much easier for me to run. I have more energy because my body isn't busy fighting off the allergens as much. Also, it is easier for me to run in different types of weather. In the past, I would have to acclimate very slowly to the changes in temperature or I would have difficulty breathing. I am truly glad to have found Dr. Hutto and her staff. The staff is kind, professional and extremely efficient. The injections are not painful and since allergies are on the rise and hereditary, I am taking my 12 year old to Dr. Hutto for an evaluation, so he will not have endure long term allergy symptoms.”

"When I first went to see Dr. Hutto, I was experiencing 8-10 sinus infections a year and I was constantly on meds to treat my condition. But since first seeing Dr. Hutto over two and half years ago, my life has changed 100 percent! … She’s not quick to prescribe medications and looks at all the factors in your life that may be causing your condition—listening to you and working with you to start a treatment plan and making sure you follow that treatment plan until your condition improves.

"For years I’d gone to doctors with sinus issues and I was always given antibiotics to treat my condition. I would start to feel better for a short while but eventually the drugs would wear off and my infections would always return. This went on for years. But then I went to see Dr. Lisa Hutto. She actually listened to me. She was the first doctor to do that.

For years I’d gone to doctors with sinus issues and I was always given antibiotics to treat my condition. I would start to feel better for a short while but eventually the drugs would wear off and my infections would always return. This went on for years. But then I went to see Dr. Lisa Hutto. She actually listened to me. She was the first doctor to do that. She knew I had a problem beyond normal infections and recommended I see an ear, nose and throat specialist. It turned out I had 80 percent blockage in my right sinus cavity and, because of a cyst, I had 100 percent blockage in the other cavity. There was no place for my sinuses to drain and that’s why I kept on having repeated problems. I would have never discovered I had these issues if not for Dr. Hutto. She is also an advocate of weight loss in terms of the general health benefits it can have on someone’s immune system. She and her staff discuss how weight loss can improve your ability to fight sinus and other infections and she even hosts weekly Weight Watchers meetings at her office. I ended up losing 50 pounds and my wife lost 55 pounds. Clearly, this is a doctor who goes out of her way to help patients discover proactive treatments and programs that go way beyond her area of specialty. Because of this personalized level of care, I’m proud to call Dr. Hutto not only my doctor but a friend.”

"Before becoming a patient of Dr. Hutto, I struggled with constant sinus infections and bronchitis. Playing with my dog, running outside, and riding my horse were a challenge because of my allergies.

Before becoming a patient of Dr. Hutto, I struggled with constant sinus infections and bronchitis. Playing with my dog, running outside, and riding my horse were a challenge because of my allergies. Dr. Hutto and her staff were very thorough in the investigative stage and in charting the best plan of treatment for me.  After determining what my allergies were, I am now able to ride my horse, run outside, and play with dog without all of that suffering!  Allergy shots have been the best option for me and while others that I know are suffering through the pollen season, I am out living my life!”

"In the past, Jake constantly had a runny nose and frequent sinus infections. He was always tired, and although he gave it his best effort to keep up with his siblings, he did have a lot of trouble doing that especially while playing outside. Since he has started taking allergy shots, his runny nose is far more manageable, he does not appear to be in an allergy 'fog,' and he was able to complete his first 5k running race with the family this spring. He is happier, healthier, and is experiencing a "normal" childhood full of outdoor activities!

My son has been a patient of Dr. Hutto for over a year now, and the changes I have seen in his health are absolutely fabulous! He suffers from allergies and eczema, and Dr. Hutto has helped my son become a normal, active child. His eczema was so severe, he was constantly itching and often embarrassed by his skin condition (and he is young). Dr. Hutto provided some simple and practical changes that we implemented in our home and his eczema is practically gone. We were able to control his eczema by eliminating fabric softener and using more natural cleaning solutions in out home as well as using a product line called Vanicream that she stocks in her office. With these simple changes, I saw results immediately and I feel our entire family has benefited from these changes as well.

"For years, I suffered with habitual allergy issues that would manifest into sinus infections at least once every other month. The sinus issues always left me feeling lethargic with low-energy and just feeling altogether miserable. Then about 20 years ago I went to see Dr. Lisa Hutto. After a thorough allergy testing, she prescribed an allergy shot treatment that has drastically improved my quality of life.

After a thorough allergy testing, she prescribed an allergy shot treatment that has drastically improved my quality of life. Dr. Hutto also prescribed an antibiotic nasal spray that treated my condition at the point of infection, allowing me to bypass having antibiotics go through my entire body. Other doctors treat you like a number, but Dr. Hutto knows me as a person and always treats me with respect and empathy while doing everything possible to make sure I feel better.”

"When I moved from the northeast to the south I quickly discovered there is always something green as the weeds, trees and grasses are constantly blooming.

When I moved from the northeast to the south I quickly discovered there is always something green as the weeds, trees and grasses are constantly blooming. Because of this, I suddenly began to experience several allergy symptoms, including headaches, nagging itching in ears and eyes, sinus infections, tiredness and an overall feeling of crankiness. I'm one that enjoys being outside alot while training (marathons, half marathons, 10K's) as well as cycling 4-5 thousand miles per year and, when I have time, working in the yard. The allergy issues made it less desirable to do these things. But now, I am doing an allergy shot every other week and have essentially weaned myself off other seasonal allergy medications and, as a bonus, I'm also saving money. I have improved dramatically and am maintaining a healthy lifestyle so I can do the things I enjoy with more energy and enthusiasm.

I strongly support using Dr. Hutto and her entire staff who are always very caring and treat you like family. They all work to ensure the treatment is suited for the individual versus a one remedy fits all approach. They offer input and advice on things such as detergents, fabric softeners, and other things that may trigger symptoms, allowing you to continually tweak and improve your environment and quality of life.”

"In consulting with her patients about allergy problems, Dr. Hutto takes a holistic approach.

In consulting with her patients about allergy problems, Dr. Hutto takes a holistic approach. I initially began seeing Dr. Hutto for allergy issues. Her diagnosis and prescribed medication cleared me right up. She also consulted with me about how certain lifestyle changes would also improve my situation in the long term. I took her advice and within a year I have lost 30 lbs. and removed certain dust collecting items in my home and I feel great. The weight lost came about not from a fad diet but managing the portion sizes of my meals.”
