James Franklin – Apr 29, 2020
Was referred to Dr Shelton by my PCP Dr George Holmes for swelling in my lower legs & ankles. Dr Shelton did a physical exam of my lower legs & ankles, answered all of our questions (my 2 daughters accompanied me during the exam) and gave clear & specific recommendations for continuing treatment for my condition. I later called in information from which Dr Shelton wrote an Rx for compression stockings & I will get the Rx at his southern Hills office. I would recommend Dr Shelton for anyone experiencing swelling of their lower legs-ankles.

I have been a patient of Dr. Mark Shelton since 2012. He's an excellent surgeon. His calming demeanor and bedside manner is great when it comes to easing any fears and indecision when anticipating going through a surgery. I would highly recommended him to anyone who is looking for a surgeon. No residual problems or scars. Excellent healing. Thanks Dr.Shelton and staff.
