I was new to the area and looking for a family doctor. Dr. Compton was referred to me by a coworker. I have been going to him now for over six years, even though I've moved over an hour away to Illinois I still prefer to see Dr. Compton. I always fine him and his nurse Connie,pleasant, concerned, compassionate and sincere. Although I go for well checks and physicals Dr. Compton found two different issues where as he referred me to a specialist and they were corrected. I would not have know.

Total lack of respect or compassion. Always had his hand on the door waiting to get to next patient. Yelled at me and ranted about his years of experience when I asked about help with some short term disability forms from my employer. He got annoyed when I asked for a referral to a specialist. Arrogant and obviously too busy to care!

My appointment with Dr. Compton was one of the worst medical experiences I have ever had. He blatantly refused to help me with my hypothyroidism until I got angry and cried. Then he at least ordered tests. He COMPLETELY refused to treat my Interstitial Cystitis so I didn't even mention my other issues. I gave him information on the specialists who had diagnosed me with the aforementioned conditions but he still talked down to me. It was clear he didn't care about improving my health. WORST!!!
