amazing doc
Dr. Connaughton has fixed my fistula several times over the last three years. He first fixed my fistula while I was in the hospital 6 months straight for another problem, and he brought me good news when I was only hearing bad news from my other health issue. I believe that by him fixing my fistula when I was going through medical hell, he brought me the hope that I needed to make it through that time. He has always been kind and made me feel comfort and comfortable when I really needed it. I am saddened by his departure, and I wish him well on his next chapter, truly.

Dr. Connaughton told my husband he had to stop smoking or he was going to lose his hand. (Artery in hand clotted off) His talk was 13 years ago and my husband is still smoker free. I am forever thankful that he took the time to say this to his patient.

Dr. Connaughton and staff are very professional, compassionate and friendly. He spends all the time you need with him to answer questions and concerns and the nurses are quick to followup with prescription refills and scheduling of follow-up appointments. I highly recommend this practice to anyone needing top quality care.

Dr. Connaughton was wonderful. When my surgeon failed to take me seriously about complications, Dr. Connaughton did. His office worked me in quickly & were incredibly kind & helpful. Dr. Connaughton read my scans carefully & found the issue no one else did, & he took extra time out of his extremely busy day to explain exactly what he found. The contrast between my operating surgeon's treatment & Dr. Connaughton's is night & day; I wish I'd gone to Connaughton to begin with--and next time I will!
