Dr. Denton is a wonderful doctor. He is informative yet still has a very personable bedside manner. He will break it down so you can understand. He also is very understanding of the patient's needs. I like that he is old school in the fact that he uses trusted methods, however his ability to talk to the patient and not at them, is what I was looking for in a knowledgable and understanding MD. Please note that the ease of appointments is not his fault, so much as an issue with Ochsner.
