Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

Dr. Shelton's Care Philosophy

I always provide the best medical care to my patients, as if they were family members, in the most compassionate and gentle manner possible. I know that patients are anxious when coming to me for Mohs skin cancer surgery and reconstruction or cosmetic dermatologic surgery procedures and I ensure that they are treated with TLC by my staff and we get so many compliments at the end of the day by most patients. They appreciate how well we took care of them and listened to their needs.
