As a new patient I found Dr. Litton to be very personable and professional. My visit was in regard to determining a course of action for a hernia. Dr. Litton did a thorough exam, taking adequate time to lay out options.

Everything went as planned with the usual soreness associated with hernia surgery. I’m not sure why but I’m experiencing a chronic case of the hiccups.

Dr. Litton and his staff are very professional, yet personal, which is rare these days. Everything was excellent pertaining to my pre-op appointment and the actual surgery. No complaints whatsoever. I will definitely recommend Dr. Litton to all family and friends.
