What People Say About Dr. James Bolton, MD

Dr. Bolton is an Excellent OB based on my daughters recent experience when he delivered her baby c-section after many hours of labor not progressing. Throughout her visits, of which I attended a few, he took the time to discuss and explain things to her and I. During her delivery and hospital stay she felt very confident she had selected the best Dr. His nurse is excellent, too.

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).
