Horrendous--Buyer Beware! I trusted this surgeon solely on the referral of Dr. Huang who is amazing. He highly recommended him and I regret 100% taking that suggestion. This surgeon has great experience. He is extremely energetic and personable. Don't be fooled. He make be skilled in the OR but if you have a complex medical history he is way under qualified. I would RUN before placing my trust in him for another surgery. Anyone who is Distal Roux end y Gastric Bypass--he isn't qualified post op

After a knee infection I found that Doctor Alton was able to replace that knee with a spacer and Antibiotics and months later give me a new knee. I have now met a Doctor who cares and knows what to do in this kind of situation. Anyone should feel confident that they are getting the very best in this kind of situation or any other. Thank you, DR. Alton

Came in with a broken leg from a hockey game and could not be happier with the outcome. Not only did Valley Medical take great care of me until I was in Dr. Alton's care but his team was nothing short of spectacular in every way possible. If you have an unfortunate accident like myself and are in need of an orthopedic surgeon I would highly recommend Dr. Alton!!

I was so happy when I found Dr. Alton, he explained everything that was going to happen and answered all of my questions. He has a great bedside manner, and is very easy to talk to. He made me feel comfortable and at ease throughout the whole process. If I ever have any other issues with my hip, Dr. Alton will be the first person I come to, and I’ve already recommended him to others. Dr. Alton is such a pleasure to work with, and I’m glad that I found him as my doctor.
