What People Say About Dr. James Nocton, MD
Reply
Worse Dr ever seen. Dismissed my sons pain as imagined and stress suggesting we see a physiatrist. Dismissed that my son will get sudden fevers that after a couple hours goes away. Also was rude to my son telling him that he can run better then he did for the evaluation and made him do it over. After we left within an hour my son spiked a fever of 102 and was in so much pain he was crying. Did not order any blood work as he said it was a waste. I had it ordered by pcp he did have deficiencies!

Dr Nocton’s behavior was unprofessional and demeaning when I took my daughter for her third visit. You don’t glare and stare down a parent for simply asking for a B12 and vitamin D test for facial flushing which he dismissed. I would never treat one of my clients that way. Going to draw blood anyway. And BTW my daughter isn’t getting arthritis from anxiety. Needs management, listening skills and communication work. Also, take the ego down about 10 notches. Jerk.
