Excellent, patient & kind Dr.! I have great mobility given the multiple cervical discs that needed to be fused! I’ve referred Dr. Caton to a # of friends. Although I can’t say the same for his assistant, Kiley. I’m not impressed!

It took three visits to look at new images and then recommend another doctor. Other doctors did it in one visit. I would not trust this practice.

Dr. Caton removed a brain tumor that my father had been diagnosed with. His staff was very sincere and helped us from start to finish. Dr. Caton himself explained the surgery in terms we could understand and calmed our anxiety. He was a very sincere and kind man.

This man ruined my grandmothers back. He is the worst surgeon imaginable and he only cares about money. Stay far, far away
