Dr. Colton performed my vaginal hysterectomy almost 5 years ago. I had multiple fibroids and didn't want scars. I was later told there was NO other Dr. in our county that could have done this vaginally because of the difficulty of the fibroids. He made the process seamless and his care of his patients is undeniable. I have since referred several patients to him and will continue to do so. Dr. Colton is the BEST!!!

I had been rescheduled two times and when they wanted to do a third time I reminded the staff I was in pain, then they didn't make me wait for an even longer appointment and got me in. I was told its cause of covid and the vague surgery schedule, but definitely had been frustrating. staff was always nice though.

I was especially happy with the front check in area. There was someone who checked my temperature before I was able to enter dressed in full PPE ensuring her and my protection. Also the young lady who checked me in had a mask on and was careful to note used "dirty" pens keeping down exchange of germs. Then when I was finished I saw her wipe down the area. All these precautions made me feel more comfortable especially since that was my first appointment during covid.
