I had been coming for knee pain, had received 2 injections. Went for MRI which was negative for tears etc. That is a good thing. But with a no tear report, I was dismissed as no surgery needed. Still have knee pain. Staff and Dr. are professional. Just feel since I didn't need surgery I no longer qualified as a patient to figure out why still hurt. Was told if gets worse come back, but what do you do in the meantime?

I would highly recommend Doctor Denton. He did what he said he would do, help me with my knee pain. He explained every thing that he was going to do. Answered all my many questions.I felt like I could trust him. He always met me with a big smile and hand shake .He took excellent care of me. When I need my other knee replacement done , he will be the Doctor I will go back to.The staff there treated me and my wife with dignity and respect. They were very friendly and helpful.

Dr. Denton repaired my right shoulder ten years ago (2006) and it is still in great shape. He repaired my left shoulder in May 2016. I am still in the recovery process and doing very well at this time. Therapy and healing are right on track. His staff is very nice, wonderful to work with and there to help if you need them. The therapy staff are also great.

I have seen Dr Denton for a significant shoulder problem. He diagnosed my problem immediately. Unfortunately, it required surgery. The outpatient surgery went great and now I am fully recovered and back to playing golf again. Thanks to Dr Denton I got my swing back.

Dr. Denton seems genuinely concerned about what you are going through (pain, discomfort, etc.). He listens and explains. He did surgery on my left shoulder and now I am seeing him for my right shoulder.

my experience with Dr Denton is that he is a first class surgeon and a good communicator. occasionally the time spent with the doctor and discussing the particular issue at hand can be impacted by the operations of the overall medical practice there - the crowded facilities, and perhaps also the business model participating in so many managed insurance plans. I expect that might be as frustrating to the doctor as it is the patient

Dr Denton did rotator cuff surgery on my left shoulder 5 years ago. The results were amazing and all my pain as relieved. I saw my recovery and results were much better than other patients I saw in therapy following surgery who had used other surgeons. This year I needed surgery on my right rotator cuff, even though I was living in Michigan I returned to Dr Denton in Florence, SC. My therapists complimented his protocol stating how clear it was, and wished all doctors were that well stated.

I was having terrible arthritis in my big toes. Another doctor had recommended surgery fusing my big toes. I did not like that idea so I sought a second opinion. Dr. Denton suggested trying injections to see if that would improve my situation. The results were amazing. I now can walk without pain by having injections every 6 months. I cannot thank Dr Denton enough for keeping me from fusing my toes! He was very thorough in all his explanations and I found himvery friendly and approachable.
