Dr. Britton examined a mucous cyst on my pinky that needed to be removed. He clearly explained the condition and the surgical process. The surgery experience was exceptional - great facilities, friendly staff, easy procedure. Follow up (post surgical visit) was equally impressive. I highly recommend Dr. Britton and his staff and will not hesitate to use them again if the need arises.

Dr Britton easily makes diagnosis and explains selection of treatments. Carpal Tunnel on 1 hand and later trigger fingers on opposite hand both required surgeries to correct, but he efficiently did the surgeries and follow-up care and utilized Physical Therapy to aid the healing process. His Lone Tree Office is pleasant and efficient with minimal wait time and easily set requiring appointments without waiting for long periods. The Focus Surgery facility at Swedish was very pleasant with efficient staff, nurses, and doctors.

This was my initial consultation with Dr. Britton during which he examined a distal biceps tendon rupture in my right arm. Dr. Britton was very knowledgeable, respectful, and thorough during the visit and he helped me understand exactly what had happened with the tendon. After asking several pertinent questions during his exam, he gave me very solid advice as to how I may wish to proceed.

Dr Britton listened to my problems and gave me the various options to consider. He suggested taking the conservative approach which I agree with totally. I will see him again in another 4 weeks.
