My husband and I have had an excellent experience with Dr. Pelton. He takes his time, is not an alarmist and does what's necessary but not more. We are very pleased with the practice.

I have seen Dr. Pelton for years and brought my children and my mother to see him as well. He is a caring, compassionate physician that takes time to listen to me during my visits. I have had several spots removed including a skin cancer on my face- he did a beautiful job and hid the scar right in a smile line! I recommend him to all of my friends and family.

I was very dissatisfied with my visit to Dr. Pelton over the summer. He was very vague, didn't exactly answer my questions, gave me two botched mole removals (they look awful), and didn't disclose how much I would owe (over $600, including a bill from the lab). I will not be going back.
