Dr. Alton did a surgical excision of my knee bursa in November 2019. I'm a carpet installer and was worrying if I would be able to kneel again to install carpet. Dr. Alton did a great job. My knee healed and I started working again. I highly recommend him!

I found Dr. Alton when I needed both hips replaced for a second time. One had a tumor and tissue damage and the other required all of the components to be removed. Dr. Alton's knowledge got me back on my feet. He is compassionate, friendly and know what he is doing. I would tell anyone who is looking for a hip doctor to go to him.

Dr. Alton replaced my right hip in May 2018 everything went great! 2019 Dr. Alton replaced my left hip everything went better this time than last time. I have great confidence in Dr. Alton. He informed me to what was going to happen he took the time to help me understand the procedure. Dr. Alton took his time with me he actually made me feel like I mattered instead of rushing me thru like I was part of a herd. I told Dr. Alton that this replacement in 2019 was amazing and that my back pain which I have had for years was now gone!! I am a very happy patient. If you are thinking about having a hip replaced Dr. Alton will do an amazing job. When you enter into the hospital and you do not know what is going to happen it is a bit challenging but the staff of nurses and other care givers they have put your mind at ease. The treatment I received was great! I was very impressed with the care I was given and it was done with sincerity. I hope you have as wonderful an experience as I

Dr. Alton gave me exceptional care, his staff and assistants were professional and supportive. My injury was due to an accident which resulted in a Tibia plateau fracture with open fixation. The surgery went smoothly with a great result. Very little pain except after surgery. Rehab was a breeze and when I was in need he and his staff was supportive and helpful. Couldn't ask for better care. If you need an orthopedic surgeon, go no further, you won't be disappointed.

Outstanding doctor and person, Dr. Alton took me on as a patient after 3 years of excrutiating hip pain. Most surgeons would not help me due to y size. Dr. Alton worked with me to get healthy and made the surgery safe. After so much pain I woke up after surgery with no pain, I was off pain meds in 2.5 days and walking 5 hours after the procedure. An a personal level, Dr. Alton truly seems to care about me as a person and patient. He has very compassionate and his medical experience is outstanding. My GP recommended Dr. Alton and told me he is the surgeon that people are referred to when their initial joint replacement (knee/hip) had issues. I would highly recommend Dr. Alton. He truly gave me my life back.

Dr. Alton and his Proliance team are great. The knee replacement went wonderfully well and I was home by 5:00 pm the next day. Did all my physical therapy and have full movement in my leg. I would recommend him to all that need knee surgery.

I had a very complicated injury to my right leg and knee. Dr. Alton saved my leg, it really feels as though he saved my life in some ways. He has great bedside manner and took the time to make sure that I knew what to expect. I am so blessed that he was there to repair my femur and knee

Dr. Alton is very genuine, personable, trustworthy and extremely skilled as an Orthopedic surgeon. Not only does he take the time to listen, but he also educates patients with their treatment options. He strives to make sure each patient has the best possible outcome and he is definitely someone who I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to my family and friends.

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.
