Birmingham, AL |
Amazing doctor with incredible bedside manner. He performed my emergency surgery and I could not have wished for anyone better. I highly recommend Dr. Littleton.

Would not recommend this doctor to anyone. He nearly killed me after I had my son. I was told I had abscesses in my breast so I was referred to him and he said I needed to go to my family doctor because he thought I had the flu and I was just engorged. This went on for weeks & come to find out thru my family doctor I had abscesses/staph & I was in surgery that same day because she was afraid I had become septic. Dr. Littleton missed it all the way around. Highly disappointed with this doctor.

Dr Littleton did my gallbladder removal and to have had surgery, I couldn't have asked for a better experience! He and his staff are so nice. It was my first surgery and they were patient and answered all of my questions. I never felt rushed and Dr Littleton did all he could to relieve my anxiety and tell me everything to expect. I am very glad he was my doctor! The only negative is the wait time. For both my pre and post op appointments, I had to wait at least 45 minutes past my apt time.

Dr. Littleton performed my partial mastectomy. He calmed my fears, demonstrated an incredible amount of empathy and answered all of my questions. I have utmost faith in his abilities as a physician.
