What physician does that? Thank you to Dr. Nutting.
My name is Greg Thorpe, husband and caregiver to the incredible, beautiful-on-the-inside-and-out, wife, Jennifer Pratt Thorpe, a 44-year-old, stage IV colon cancer patient. We live in Utah.
Dr. Nutting lives in Colorado.
I met Dr. Nutting through co-founder Suzanne Lindley at YES! beatlivertumors.org. From that day, Dr. Nutting called me on my personal cell phone to introduce himself, and offer his help. I knew right away he was not your ordinary Doctor.
Dr. Nutting has been an amazing advocate and friend to Jen and I throughout this “Journey.”
One time, I was following on the Internet a HUGE Colorectal Cancer Summit in Chicago, where Dr. Nutting was a key presenter. Imagine my surprise and shock when my personal cell phone rang and it was Dr. Nutting. He was in between his lectures, with laptop in hand, discussing my wife’s most recent forwarded CT Scans!
The real shocker – My wife was not yet even an official Colorado patient!
What physician does that? We were amazed at his genuine concern and care. He truly does care. Dr. Nutting truly goes “THE EXTRA MILE” and then some to help!
When faced with serious health decisions, I often ask the many doctors here in Utah the question: “What would you do if this were your wife, mom, or sister? I’m sure no one has ever asked that of Dr. Nutting, because his obvious compassion, passion and sincere concern for his patients would give the confidence that that is exactly the treatment options that he’d recommend.He has continued throughout this last year to help us in this battle with cancer.
