SHC Patient, Sep 2016

He just seemed very "arrogant" and spoke down to you, as if to think you should understand without further explanation.

SHC Patient, Jul 2016

Doctor initially would not provide detailed information, had to repeatedly ask for more details. Ultimately not sure doctor understood my concerns.

Dr. Shelton is trustworthy and an excellent GI Dr. and surgeon. I trust him to do all my future surgeries.

SHC Patient, Jan 2016

I have complete confidence in Dr. Shelton. He is a true professional & very knowledgeable & friendly.

SHC Patient, Jan 2016

I was very impressed by the doctor, his nurse practitioner, and nurse. Very organized, knowledgeable, assuring, and personable. But I'd just as soon not see him again.

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

The consultation with Dr. Skimmer and Shelton gave me great confidence in their skills.

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

A neighbor of mine had surgery, a few months ago, here, she told me how well she was treated here, I can tell the short time - I was here that she was right.

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

Outstanding surgeon and office team.

SHC Patient, Oct 2015

from the time of scheduling thru to checkout all services have been of the highest quality.

SHC Patient, Oct 2015

Staff is excellent.

SHC Patient, Sep 2015

Excellent & knowledgeable dr., but always in a hurry.

SHC Patient, Sep 2015

Doctor obviously didn't read file or review recent MRI - no knowledge or appreciation of complexity of my issues. All business (without corresponding understanding) and no compassion. Dismissive.

SHC Patient, Aug 2015

My wife and I were extremely pleased with the professional expertise of Dr. Shelton. He explained the issues associated with my health problem in a manner which gave us confidence in moving forward. He answered our question clearly and precisely, conveying to us both surgical procedures to be followed as will as post operation processes. We were most impressed with the thoroughness of the information and the exams which were administered. If a 10 is a top score for Doctor Shelton during our consultation and exam --- double it to a 20.

SHC Patient, Aug 2015

I have 100% confidence in Dr. Shelton and his staff.

SHC Patient, Aug 2015

Dr. Shelton is optimistic and supportive. This latest surgery was particularly challenging for me, and I was immensely grateful for his and his team's oversight.

SHC Patient, Jun 2015

Very grateful to Elizabeth Smith for her kind and attentive care!

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

The PA was very good - listened and understood. The Dr. however had not studied the case, misunderstood the problem, was not empathetic - I would never go back.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

Keep up the good work.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

Everything outstanding.

SHC Patient, Feb 2015

Really liked the staff.

SHC Patient, Feb 2015

Outstanding experience. Dr. Shelton provided expert advice in a compassionate, competent, easily to understand manner.

SHC Patient, Jan 2015

Dr. Shelton is an excellent surgeon. He delegates a lot which makes more difficult because care is not as coordinated.

SHC Patient, Dec 2014

It is good to have a doctor who is very confident in what he does.

SHC Patient, Dec 2014

Provider seemed rushed and very business like. He did not order the test that were recommended by the referring provider and he did not exam me.

SHC Patient, Sep 2014

Consultation was short, abrupt, and dr. did not even look at stoma area! Was advised only to get stronger to endure medical procedure.

SHC Patient, Sep 2014

The nurse, resident doctor and doctor were wonderful.

SHC Patient, Aug 2014

Could not have asked for better care!!

Way better "bedside manner" than UCSF!

SHC Patient, Jan 2014
