in Gainesville, TX |
The Dr. makes you feel comfortable and eases your concerns. He is honest and upfront with you as his patient. He shows he cares and that he chose his profession to help others. I was referred to him by my mother and I highly recommend Dr. Connaughton.

Dr. Connaughton is an excellent surgeon with a bedside manner to match his skill.

Dr. Connaughton always explains everything that is happening and what to expect from the surgery. I never feel rushed. He is very friendly and warm. I have the greatest faith in him after having had 4 surgeries. My only complaint is when I call to set up an appointment, she is very curt and it seems like she is being bothered by my call. The nurses or assistants in the back office are excellent.

My first visit to the Dr. left me feeling very comfortable with choosing him for my Dr. He was very personable and friendly and answered my questions. He preformed a minor surgery on me ( if being cut on is minor) and did a super job. I had no bleeding and healing fast. Very happy with my choice and highly recommend him.

Besides being an excellent surgeon (vascular and general) he has a great "bedside" manner, and takes time with his patients to hear them out, not showing any evidence of hurry. I highly recommend Dr. Connaughton...he has done several surgeries on me and to my complete satisfaction!!
in Aubrey, TX |
Dr. Connaughton is compassionate, skilled, and just an excellent doctor.
in Ft Worth, TX |
Dr. Connaughton was very easy to speak with. He genuinely seemed concerned about my well-being and was not in a rush to move on to the next patient. 2 weeks after my surgery has me feeling better than ever.
in Lake Dallas, Texa |
My husband waited to see Dr Connaughton for approx. 45 minutes after waiting in the lobby of his office for over an hour just to get into a room. Once there, the kind doctor checked my husband (which took about 3 minutes) and as we were walking out of the room, he sarcastically told my husband he needed to get a pair of suspenders because he looked like his pants were about to fall off. My dear husband just smiled as we left. My husband was a stage 4 cancer patient who passed away 18 days later!
in Corinth, TX |
On four occasions in the past nine year, I have been treated and operated on by Dr Connaughton. He treats patients with kindness and caring, he listens to you. Choosing Dr Connaughton 4 times should answer the question, Would I recommend him? POSITIVELY!
