Dr. Bryson was my physician before having to retire early. Heartbreaking! Dr. Dorton has since provided top notch care as my physician by taking the time to know me as a patient. He’s never hurried, he’s kind and listens. I’m incredibly fortunate he was there to take over my gynecological needs...more

I absolutely love Dr. Dorton. My little boy came a few weeks early and was delivered via c-section. Everything went so wonderfully it was like a dream. He has the best beside manner and is extremely kind and thorough.
