We met Dr. Staton at the ER where my husband was after a heart attack. He came through that and we've been seeing him every since. He is thorough, smart & concerned for his patients. He's not one for long chats, and if you blink you may miss him as he does have a habit of darting in and out of his hospital visits.... but he is always there. I have been told by several nurses that he is very tough on them. But was also told if you do what you are supposed to do, you will have no problem.

Two months to get appt with primary care telling him there were pacemaker problems. 3 1/2 hrs plus wait times on visits. Schedules surgery for early morning, but not performed until late afternoon/early evening because he makes it standard practice to run back & forth between his office & surgeries all day long. Had to hear complaints from hospital staff, OR staff & other patients all day. Wouldn't let me take my pain mgmt prescriptions all day. Found another cardiologist in Tifton.

HE IS AWESOMENESS!!! Seriously, he has saved my life, my husbands life, and my life as well. I had a rare myxoma tumor that he found and had it surgically removed. Dr. Staton was a trooper! Visited my room a few times everyday to check my progress and kept my family informed. Don't mess up and go somewhere else!!

I have no complaints about Dr. Staton as a doctor and my recent procedure. Everything went well and he was very nice in front of me. The problem I have is the way he berated and verbally abused the staff around him. On more that one occasion I witnessed verbal abuse and bullying right in front of me, for him to then look at me and smile and say he was going to take care of me. He is a great doctor, but I am certainly glad I do not have to work with him.
