Dr. Charlton is awesome. He performed surgery on my foot that several other surgeons were too afraid to perform. My recovery was slow but I can walk without a limp and still ride my skateboard. Great staff too. Highly recommended!
in Newbury Park, CA |
Dr. Charlton is an amazing surgeon with incredible bedside manners. I was very nervous about my Achilles surgery. He explained what happened, what my options were, and how we could proceed. I didn't feel pressured at all to have surgery. He was very honest about the benefits of not doing surgery and left it up to me. Before the surgery and afterwards, my experience with him has been nothing but incredible. I wish all doctors could be like him. And he just seems like a great guy!

In October 2016 Dr. Charlton did a simple and routine surgery on my big toe - Akin osteotomy. The surgery was a failure, and I need another surgery. Other than this - nice bedside manners and expensive.

Dr Charleton made such a positive difference in my recovery. I had suffered so long from a misdiagnosis by another doctor. He's very kind and patient explaining what is wrong and answering my questions. Thanks Doc!

I hurt myself at work and completely ruptured my Achilles tendon, I visited several doctors before I met Dr. Charlton. He is truly a Saint, he's the greatest, he has great bedside manners, and I can't say enough about Dr. Charlton. I was scared to death of surgery, this was my first surgery ever, a major. I went to SCOI, Kerlan Jobe etc. No one even comes close to him. He is one of a kind, it was a miracle the day I met him. He has a great sense of humor, I trust him with my life.
in Azusa, CA |
I feel very well taken care of and comfortable with Dr Carlton. He is very knowledgable and efficient combined with with just the right amount of friendliness and humor.
in Upland, CA |
