Summerville |
Had surgery 11 years ago & Dr. Litton was the surgeon.A very caring doctor. When I needed surgery this past August and was told he would be my surgeon I was happy and relaxed. I would trust him to do any surgery on me and my family when needed.

My experience with Dr Litton has been very positive. I would recommend him to anyone who required the services of a surgeon.
Ladson, SC |
The entire team were excellent. Made me feel comfortable during the whole process. They even assisted me change the appointment several times. I expected them to give me a hard time about that but they were accommodating. I was blown away by the hand written thank you card from each team member that assisted me, I thought that was above and beyond.
in Summerville, SC |
Dr. Litton explains the current situation and the options quite well to me as a patient. Also if I ask a question, Dr. Litton answers the question BUT also put the answer in terms and language that I can understand. I would recommend Dr. Litton to anyone that needs general surgery or the various type of surgery that can be done using the robot to assist in these surgeries. Post-op instructions are excellent. Plus, the staff is friendly and empathetic. They know you"re hurting./have issues.

I love dr Litton as a matter of fact I had seen him in 2015 and thought he was very smart and caring about his patients he also let me make up my own mind about how I wanted to handle my health situation and it turned out to be the right one. he also told me if I ever needed him to call and that is just what I did, I was so impressed by him that when I was dealing with current issue I looked him up and saw that he treats my issue so I called and made an appointment and he is fixing me tomorrow

Dr. Litton is heaven sent! He and his staff provided calmness and reassurance prior to my gallbladder surgery. His staff is very accommodating and went above and beyond to get me scheduled for surgery quickly. Dr. Litton's compassion and bedside manner is remarkable. He is and will continue to be the first choice for my family and I.

I was very impressed the cleanliness and excellent service I received at Dr Litton's office. He is very professional and my surgery went perfectly.
in Goose Creek |
Excellent practice, very clean and spacious. Staff was exceptionally friendly and personable. Dr. Litton was awesome and I have full confidence my procedure will go exactly as he shared with me. Certainly if the need were to arise in the future, I would choose Dr. Litton.
in Cottageville, SC |
Dr Litton and his staff showed so much respect and compassion for my mother. She is 83 and has some trouble explaining her medical issues, but Dr Litton was patient with her. Great doctor and staff.
in North Charleston |
Dr. Litton has a wonderful attitude and extremely easy to work with. I truly believe Dr. Litton and his staff at the office and in the surgery room are very professional and conduct themselves as such. My experiences have been very positive/successful on both occasions. Thanks, Dr. Litton & Staff for a job well done. Oh, and yes; I will spread the word to anyone that will listen.
in Summerville S.C |
Dr. Litton is the best in my book. I was rushed to the E.R. at Summerville Medical in severe pain caused by a rupture in my intestines. I needed surgery and Dr. Litton was on call, my surgery was risky, he made a decision and the surgery was a success!! I wouldn't want any other surgeon, he is very caring, compassionate and patient. I love this man!! May God continue to bless him and his ability to perform his duties as well as his life, health and family. Thank you!
