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

The nurse, resident doctor and doctor were wonderful.

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