Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

He almost killed me. I specified multiple times that I am allergic to soy, but he did not do anything when soy based propofol was used. I threw up in the middle of the procedure and woke up full of sore and ache.

Three years ago, my husband and I retired to NC. The most stressful part of settling in a new area is having confidence in the health care professionals. Dr. Caton and his staff patiently answered all my questions and scheduled multiple appointments to help me make the decision to follow through with elective surgery. I am so happy I chose Dr. Caton. The surgery was a success and Dr. Caton was right when he said "youwill be glad you did it". I highly recommend Dr. Caton and send a shout out of thanks to Pat and Jesse. Margaret
