Very happy with my results!

Total botched eyelid surgery. Find someone who cares about aesthetics more than money.

I was having trouble with my eye, being swollen and seemed larger than the other. Dr. Pelton was the only eye doctor that was able to see me the same day. From the moment you walk in, the staff is professional and very nice. I read another review from someone that said, "Dr. Pelton was arrogant, etc"...I find that unbelievable. He was very genuine, kind and professional. I would highly recommend him.

I was diagnosed with Ptosis this year by Dr. Pelton - surgery was scheduled and performed. Dr.Pelton was very caring yet professional during all of my visits. The staff is friendly, helpful and easy to talk to The office is comfortable and spotless. Yes I will recommend Dr. Pelton without hesitation and have done so already to my family, friends and neighbors. Karen

I have been a patient of Dr. Ronald W. Pelton M.D., PhD for several years now. Dr. Pelton is always kind, professional, and attentive. His office is state of the art, clean, and spacious. The women in the office, from those who greet me at the door to Dr. Pelton's assistants, always make me feel welcome. It's more like I am visiting "family" than going to see my doctor! I would highly recommend Dr. Pelton and have always been 100% satisfied. Carla Faith

I noticed the correction as soon as the next day. The shadows had already disappeared from my vision. It was unbelievable. After each day, following the post surgical orders, I am so much more comfortable. Thank you Dr . Pelton

Horrible. I was not the actual patient but my dad was. This doctor is the most arrogant I've ever met. Rude every time we met. Condescending over the phone when we called concerned about the healing process. Made derogatory comments and was less than caring. I would NEVER let a loved one visit this office. Ever. We won't be back. And we will also be reporting him for his less than professional attitude.
