Dr. Fenton is the best doctor I have ever seen! He takes his time, explains what is going on, answers questions and I have never felt rushed. He is so funny and puts me at ease. He is so personable, and I really enjoy my visits with him. I have referred him to 2 others, and they both enjoyed their visit with him as much as I have. He has been my doctor for 13 years, and if I ever move, I will be coming back to Utah for any GI needs.
