A compassionate approach to using the most recent dynamic medical technology to better my patients lives.

All my patients deserve to be empowered with information and ability to make decisions as for what is best for their own health. This is the care I strive to deliver, as well as making recommendations that I would want for my own Wife, Mother, Sister or Daughter. All while doing so with a smile that is genuine because, I have been and always will be honored that patients trust me to be their Physician.

North Royalton, OH |
Wonderful doctor! Truly cares about his patients. Great experience during prenatal appointments and during delivery. During my 6 week check up, Dr. Alton asked for feedback on my experience with the office, hospital, care providers. I've seen several doctors and have never been asked for my feedback. He truly cares about his patients.
Brunswick, OH |

in Brunswick, OH |
Just went back to work after 2 weeks from hysterectomy. Dr. Alton was awesome! I was referred to him by one of his partners. He was a great listener and never made me feel like he was in a rush to get to the next patient. He is the only doctor that explained what possibly was wrong. The pathology results proved what he thought was wrong. Recovery from the surgery was literally just a few days. Would highly recommend him.
in Brunswick, OH |
I have been a patient of Dr. Alton for a decade and I would never want to see another GYN. He doesnt overtreat, doesn't undertreat, and designs a care plan for individuals based on their needs and situation. He values the input of his patients. I have never left his office feeling any way but confident that I am always in good hands.
Brookpark, OH |
Dr Alton is very down to earth and always supportive of any decision I've ever made. He's very professional and I feel 100% comfortable and at ease with him. I always recommend him to family and friends.
Dr. Alton is fabulous, he makes sure that you are doing great as a whole person. His staff is caring also. He helps you weigh the pros and cons of each decision and doesn't pressure you into a decision.

I was referred to Dr. Alton about 3 years ago due to having abnormal cells. I was nervous about going to see him but made me feel comfortable right away. He takes the time to address all your concerns and answer any questions you may have. I would highly recommend Dr. Alton to anyone. Compassionate, caring and has a great bedside manner.
in Berea, Ohio |
Being a newly referred patient and possibly having to undergo a medical procedure, I first met with Dr. Alton with some concern. However, I left the office visit feeling confident in his abilities and relieved about my situation. He thoroughly explained my options, listened to and answered all my questions, and made me feel that he really cared to know me. It's been three weeks since my hysterectomy and I feel great, just like he said I would! Thanks Dr. Alton!

in Parma, OH |
I am so glad I took my time to review other patients comments before choosing Dr. Alton. He is, by far, the best OB/GYN I have ever had! His caring and empathetic demeanor helped to put me at ease. I felt extremely comfortable explaining my long ignored symptoms. He quickly diagnosed my issue and reassured me that he would use the least invasive method to treat my concerns. He is extremely knowledgeable, which led to my speedy recovery. Thanks, Dr. Alton!
in Cleveland, OH |
Dr. Alton is caring and extremely knowledgeable. He listens to you and answers all questions, even if you ask the same question 10 times. He fights insurance companies to do what is best for you and not just what they think is best. He follows up after treatments to be sure you are doing well and have no concerns.
Cleveland, OH |
I am satisfied!!! He listened, he fixed the problem and he showed compassion as well as possessed a GREAT deal of knowledge!!! Happy I was recommended to him!!!
in North Royalton, OH |
Great experiences every time with Dr. Alton and his staff. Going on five years now regular care and recently my first pregnancy. All throughout my pregnancy and delivery the care was amazing and very comforting. All questions were answered and I felt like my baby boy was looked out for from the beginning. Dr. Alton truly listens to all concerns and addresses situations promptly with care.
in Westfield Center, OH |
During my last exam, Dr. Alton and I talked about what I thought was perimenopause symptoms. Based on that brief conversation, he ordered tests and it turned out to be more than that He really listens and is really easy to talk to. We reviewed all my options and I opted for a hysterectomy (he does robotic laparoscopic). He/his staff answered all my questions and calmed my worries. I'm 2 wks post op and EXTREMELY pleased with my results--it was almost a non-event. Great doc. Great surgeon!
Valley City, OH |
Dr. Alton is by far my favorite ob/gynecology doctor I have ever had. He is the only doctor who I feel completely comfortable with. I would recommend him to anyone. He delivered my daughter after an awful labor and ensured me I could do it without an epidural.
in Parma, OH |
I have already recommended Dr. Alton to a close friend in search of a new OB. Always felt like he was listening and concerned. Great during delivery. Great with dads also, let's not forget them.
in Valley city , OH |
I recently had surgery by Dr. Alton. I felt at ease through the whole process. Dr. Alton walked me through every step of the surgery from beginning to end. He helped put my mind at ease! His bedside manner was great. He is very easy to talk to. I would highly recommend!
in North Ridgeville, OH |
Dr. Alton exceeded my expectations! Initially, I was scheduled to meet with a different OB/GYN associated with another hospital. This being my first pregnancy, I wanted to do more research and I am so happy I did! Luckily, I found Dr. Alton on healthgrades.com. After reading his reviews, I knew I wanted him to be my Dr. He is trustworthy, personable, knowledgeable and answered the many questions we had. I will recommend Dr. Alton to family and friends!
in Wadsworth, OH |
I can't say enough positive things about Dr. Alton, I have been looking for an OB/GYN that is compassionate and actually listens to the patient. I am so thankful someone recommended Dr. Alton. I highly recommend him.
Cleveland, OH |
Dr. Alton always listened to my concerns and questions and expressed such care and professionalism that it felt more like talking to family - even when I was distressed and experiencing issues throughout pregnancy, delivery and post partum - I always felt that he was genuine, cared about me and wanted the very best for me and my family.

Dr. Alton has the best bedside manner and really listens and pays attention to everything you need. My whole pregnancy with him was awesome and I felt very well taken care of.
in Medina, OH |
Dr. Alton is the best OB/GYN doctor I have had to associate. He is a compassionate and caring doctor. And you feel he truly listens and understands your concerns. I found him through a former family physician when we moved to Medina County in 2013. I recently recommended him to a friend from my church and told her she would love him:-) Thank you for the wonderful care. Never lose your bedside manner:-) God bless!
Dr. Alton is great! He is very personable, always takes time to listen and you never feel like just another patient.
in Medina, Ohio |
Dr Alton took care of me throughout two healthy pregnancies. He was fantastic as were the on call physicians in his office. I had unexpected bleeding through the first trimester with my second son and he was very responsive to my calls and concerns and got me in for the necessary testing very quickly. He reassured me and answered all of my questions at every appointment. I never felt rushed. His nurse is also very good and returned my calls quickly. It's a great team all around.
in Medina, OH |
i feel Dr Alton is a very knowledgable and trustworthy Doctor. Dr Alton was recommended to me several years ago after many years of searching for a Dr I felt comforatable with and one that takes the time and explains everything to you. I have the utmost respect and trust in him as my doctor and highly recommend him to friends and family. Who in turn are now patients of his too.
I always feel comfortable after my dr visit with dr alton. He makes sure I understand everything going on during and after my pregnancy and makes me feel comfortable asking him any question that I have.
