Closure of James Island Pediatrics

posted Sep 30, 2019, 5:36 AM by Marsha Cayton   [ updated Sep 30, 2019, 5:36 AM ]

Dear Parent(s):

It is with mixed emotions that I announce I am stepping down from daily practice as a physician.  It has truly been an honor to serve your family over the years.  James Island Pediatrics will be officially closing its doors September 30, 2019. This will to allow me to spend more time with my family, especially my grandchildren, and also to travel.


I know that it is difficult to select a new pediatric provider.  I have a relationship with two providers who I trust and respect to provide you high quality care.  These two providers have access to our electronic medical record and may access your child’s medical information with your express written permission.  Please consider these two providers as you make your choice for your future pediatric needs.

  • SEE Alternatives Pediatrics was started by Marsha Cayton, the Nurse Practitioner who has worked in our office for the last 2 years.  I will continue a consultation relationship with Marsha. She focuses on holistic, integrative healthcare.  Her office is located at 3227 Walter Dr. Ste C1, Johns Island, SC 29455.  Her phone number is 843.920.0046
  • Pelican Pediatrics is owned by Dr. Eliza Varadi.  Dr. Varadi has served the James Island community for many years.  She is located at 452 Folly Rd, Charleston, SC 29412.  Her office can be reached at 843.795.3344

Thank you for trusting me with your child’s health and wellness needs for all these years.  It has truly been an honor to serve your family.

Dr. Martine Hutton

Wellness Wednesday Educational Series

posted Jul 30, 2018, 10:21 AM by Marsha Cayton

Wellness Wednesday is an educational series that is designed to support you and your family in creating wellness that lasts a lifetime.  Every day we are learning more about how the body works, and much of it is different that what we learned as healthcare providers and what we have taught you.  We offer this educational series to share with you what is being learned and how you can apply it in your every day lives.

The best part – you don’t even have to leave your home!  This monthly call is a 30 minute call that is offered 2 times for your convenience – a lunchtime call and an evening call.

We welcome our new provider!

posted Feb 24, 2018, 8:56 AM by Marsha Cayton

We would like to take a moment to welcome our new provider.  Marsha Cayton is a pediatric nurse practitioner and has been working with Dr. Hutton at James Island Pediatrics since October 2017.  Many of you have already met her, but we want to take a moment to share a bit about her.

She has worked in healthcare for over 20 years, as a pediatric nurse practitioner for 17 of those 20 years. She has worked as a nurse, a nurse practitioner, a manager, and an entrepreneur.  She is inspired by functional and integrative healthcare, as it can lead to true healing, which is what draws her to Dr. Hutton. She believes a person must be treated holistically - body, mind, heart, and spirit - to achieve optimal health and wellness.

She lives on Seabrook Island with her husband, Larry, and two cats, Merry & Mojo. She is a proud aunt to two teenagers. Please join us in welcoming her to the practice!

Change to Early Morning Urgent Appointments.

posted Feb 25, 2014, 11:13 AM by Martine Hutton

With the current financial hardships on families and  "affordable healthcare" that appears to be escalating premium costs for families, we have decided to move our urgent morning appointments to 8 am on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Thursday Early Morning Urgent Appointment hours will remain unchanged. You can call for an appointment - but the best way to get one of these appointments remains unchanged!  You make it yourself-at any time of the day or night !  Go to the After-hours page on this website and follow the directions.  Many families are regular users of this service and love being able to schedule their day in advance!  We will also be keeping the phones on during our lunch hours to allow working parents to reach us during their time off. Because we are routinely in the office during this time doing catch-up, we will be able to schedule some appointments over lunch but please call in advance for this appointment time.
