Patient Comments (1)
in Somerset, KY |
I had to have an emergency appendectomy, and Dr. Shelton was on call to admit me and perform my surgery. This was 12-11-16, and he made sure I was taken very good care of, my pain was managed, and when he arrived he was the friendliest,most respectful Doctor I have had. He sincerely cared, and he made my stay at LCRH a very easy and caring stay. He is one of the best surgeons! His partner Camillio Santiago is as well. You can't go wrong with either.
