The only problem i have is it's almost impossible to talk to anyone when you call for an appointment. You leave a message & do not have any idea what's going on !

I would not recommend this doctor to anyone. I have been to his office 3 times and only caught a glance of him while laying on my stomach waiting for a shot in my back. I don't think he has a real interest in helping anyone but his bank account. I felt like a patient on a conveyor belt that led to back shots in his office. While Vince was very nice and seem to show some concern, he was just doing tasks that Dr. Munton couldn't be bothered with. And, robot like assistant Kelly was no help.

I received a hip injection from Dr. Munton, and acquired an infection in my hip joint as a result. The infection was not discovered until I was cut open during hip replacement surgery. I now have a pic line in my arm and am receiving 2 hours of intravenous antibiotics daily for 6 weeks. When this is finished I will have to undergo surgery again. The infection is what destroyed my hip. This is a warning to all that are receiving steroid injections from this office. The risk of infection is real.

I am writing to express my concern about Dr. Daniel Munton unethical behavior. Dan Munton is an unethical person and I would like to bring this to someone’s attention to keep him from hurting others. He was supposed to see my mother today 7/7/2017 on an "emergency/expedited time frame" (For Dr. Daniel Munton this emergency time frame translated into a 1.5 month wait). When we arrived to the appointment this morning his staff informed me that they had not received the referral required. I then

I have to put a one star but this doctor and his staff deserve a negative star. They are so unprofessional, never answer calls, and cancel your appointment without your knowledge. We walked in and they blamed us the patient that we had responsibilities to call when we had confirmed appointment the day before. They wanted us to wait Another month for another appointment. Once we told them it was unacceptable told us to leave and they would think about rescheduling our Appointment.
