Dr. Dorton is a consummate professional, and I trust him 100% w my care and the care of my husband. The office staff and Dr. Dorton, were so caring and personable. Dr. Dorton, took more time with me then I could have imagined, and I don’t even have many health concerns. I have recommended him to many others. Thank you Dr. Dorton,!
