About me

Hello and welcome to my Web page! My name is Christopher Cutter and I am family physician. I joined Kaiser Permanente so that I could be part of an organization that uses a team approach to provide the best-possible care to its members. I have extensive experience practicing medicine in both urban and rural areas and I am now bringing my expertise to the new Kaiser Permanente San Marcos Medical Offices.

Biography

I was born into a U.S. Navy family right here in San Diego. I had the opportunity to live in many areas including Spain, Texas, and different parts of California. I received my undergraduate degree in biochemistry at San Jose State University and my medical degree at UCLA. I remained in the UCLA system and completed my family medicine residency at Northridge Hospital in the San Fernando Valley. I have been board certified in family medicine since 1985.

About my practice

I chose family practice because I loved all aspects of medicine. I worked in hospitals, emergency rooms, and did surgical assisting for years. I even delivered babies for a few years. As medicine has evolved, I have devoted my efforts to taking care of outpatients. This means being prepared for whatever walks in the door. It also means applying the principles of evidence-based medicine to the treatment of all of the common diseases and conditions that we encounter in primary care. I love being part of a team that strives to always give patients high-quality care.

How I thrive

"My wife and I love living in north county San Diego. Our children and grandchildren are nearby and we are so enjoying being so close to them! I have become an accomplished photographer. It started with "How do they do that?" and then learning how. Expressing the beauty of the world in print is so rewarding. At the same time I decided I wanted to play music again, so I started playing and self-teaching myself about music. I love my guitars, and I love to make them sing. I am always looking for bands to play with."
