He is always very pleasant and informative. He had done a previous surgery on my back and I was very pleased. He will soon be doing another surgery on my back and I have total confidence in him. Great doctor!

First appointment.
Excellent and friendly, efficient staff. Would have appreciated more interaction and communication with Dr Stanton. Hopefully that will happen after MRI results.

Although the surgery he performed went well, the administrative time it takes to even make an appointment is unacceptable. I've been trying to make a follow up appointment with Dr. Stanton for over two weeks with no luck. The only times I did see him before surgery, the visits were extremely rushed. I felt like a mere number in the production line.

I would definitely recommend Dr Paul Stanton to my friends and family when it comes to spine issues. I have this pain for 6 years and i finally decide to see him for help. He’s been so compassionate and patient with me because i am so scared to have surgery. Between him and his NP (J. Daugherty) , they convinced to have it done. With that being said, i should have done it sooner?? Now i am recovering well ( 8weeks out)and i do hope that ii will continue to heal totally so i can go back to do things which i love to do which are traveling and hiking. I can’t thank Dr Stanton enough and his team for a job well done. Thank you so much??

My husband and I went to Dr Stanton for a second opinion and decided after he left the room that he was our first choice for back surgery for me. We had so much explanation given to us while showing my x-rays and MRI and what they meant. Then he very carefully explained what needed to be done and how it was going to be accomplished. Wow. No question as to our decision to turn my back over to Dr Stanton!

Dr. Stanton performed a L4/S1 Spinal Fusion in March. Yesterday I had my 'last' post-operation exam--all is well and I can go back to 'normal.' My experience with him and his PA, Janelle, and other staff has been only positive. I am very pleased with the results and can only commend him at the highest level.

I was recommended to Dr. Stanton by a family member. What an excellent physician he is. He operated on my spine for a long standing issue that is now corrected. I feel like a different person! I'm so thankful I met him and had this surgery done. I highly recommend Dr. Stanton and the CSOG. He has a wonderful and supportive staff. My life can begin again. Thank you Dr. Stanton!

Dr. Statton is very knowledgeable, he will be honest with you even if the news is hard to hear. I believe he wants the best outcome for his patients, and will offer them the care they need. Beth his assistant is terrific, she always returns phone calls, and never gets frustrated when I ask a lot of questions. I’m thankful for Dr. Statton and his team. E. Walker

The visit is nice, but he doesn’t work with your insurance very well to get your surgery done. I am having to live on pain meds while I sit & wait for months to HOPEFULLY have a surgery.
