Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Elton "I believe every patient deserves the best possible outcome. That's why I obtained the highest possible training for my specialty, going over and beyond what is required of a general orthopaedist. Our staff also goes the extra mile so that you spend more time with me, and less time waiting for me. This allows me to customize a treatment plan that fits the way you want to live, work and play. The best medicine is practiced when doctor and patient connect with each other in a meaningful way."
