in Easley, SC |
Excellent surgeon. I had major thoracic surgery and it went very well. Dr. Bolton and his staff were very good about explaining everything. The surgery was complex and long. The care I received from Dr. Bolton was first rate. His resident doctors, the medical student and the hospital staff were excellent.
in Lyman, SC |
Dr. Bolton is very compassionate and extremely knowledgeable. He is easy to talk to and is genuinely concerned about his patients.
in Greer, SC |
Dr. Bolton is a courteous, caring, professional! He took the time to explain in length to my Mother and if she didn't understand, he was patient. He kept us informed, which is important. I must say he keeps things "real" and demonstrates that you can give sad news with a kind heart. Excellent surgeon!! I would recommend Dr Bolton to family and friends. Thank you!!
