Dr. Bolton has been my physician for many years and i would not think of changing. He is kind, caring, and professional. I have never left thinking i didn't get enough time with him. His nurse Diane has been with him many years and she shares the same traits. these are reasons i recommended my own daughter to him. Unfortunately, there are always some bad apples and i have run across them on occasion. However, having had the positive experiences i do not let them change my opinion.

Dr. Bolton's nurses are rude and unprofessional. I had to change doctors because Dr. Bolton was not covered under my new plan and I needed two more birth control prescriptions since my new doctor could not see me for a few months. My experience w/ Dr. Bolton's office was terrible and I was denied a refill. Thankfully, my new doctor was able to refill my prescriptions. I would not recommend Dr. Bolton to anyone because the attitude of his staff is consistently poor (though not every individual).
