Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Pelton "Every encounter with a new patient is an opportunity to address their anxieties and apprehension about their diagnosis or symptoms.  This can only be done in a setting that is comfortable and non-hurried, with time to answer their questions, no matter how long it takes.  I like a personalized approach, which often includes a tour of our department and demonstration of the equipment.  My goal is to reduce their fear of the treatment as much as possible."
