I was paralyzed by a Chiropractor and Dr Rhoton got me in, visited me in the Hospital, made sure my family was taken care of and operated on me the next day. He also scheduled an MRI in Waynesville to speed up the process of my operation and it made all the difference in the world. Since the surgery, I have never had a problem of any kind. What a wonderful , great, professional, extremely knowledgeable and treats everyone like family. I was honored to have Dr Rhoton as a Doctor and friend.
