Dr. Wharton makes you feel like you are the only patient he has, takes time to explain each detail, very caring person... I have had 4 skin cancers that required office surgery, all healed perfect. I have a 6 month check up yearly.

Dr. Wharton always takes time to answer questions. He has treated me for several minor issues with very good results. He makes an unpleasant trip to the doctor bearable. Very thorough and exceptional calming demeanor.

I would not recommend this physician under any circumstances. It takes forever to get appointments. I have been going there for several years now and have never seen the doctor. Two weeks ago I called during office hours to get an appointment. The call went to voice mail. I left a message stating that I needed an appointment and left my name and number for them to call me. I have not heard from them. I will not be going back.
