What People Say About Dr. Frank Wootton III, MD

I have used DR Wootton for 20 years. He can do colon exams but is unable to diagnose anything more complex. He would come into appointments with no advance knowledge of even what meds I was taking, prescribed by him. I had hemoglobin counts less than half of normal and he had no interest. I had to make appointments with other doctors to receive proper care. He endangered my life, See another doctor other than Frank Wootton.

I am considered a high risk patient and as such I need a very special kind of gastroenterologist for my colonoscopy. Dr. Wooten is that gastroenterologist. I have severe scaring in my intestines as the result of radiation many years ago. In the past I have had horrible experiences with colonoscopies due to the incompetence of the practitioners. Dr. Wooten understood my concerns and walked me thru the entire process before, during and after the procedure. He is professional in every way.

Dr. Wooten is the kind of doctor who follows the philosophy that medicine is a partnership between the patient and doctor. He has always explained everything to me in terms that any lay person can understand. He has asked pointed questions to make sure that I fully understand all the risks of doing or not following his suggestions. His office is very receptive to inquiries and he and they respond to phone calls within a reasonable amount of time. I sincerely trust his judgement.
