Excellent. Very caring doctor. I had a biopsy performed to determine if something was malignant. I was concerned. After about 3 working days I received a call from Dr. Dorton at 8pm at night. She said that she knew I was concerned and when she saw the results come in she thought she would call so I would not worry throughout the night. First time in my 40+ years I have received a call from a doctor after 5pm regarding test results. Again, very caring doctor.
