    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

    very kind and understanding. Urgent with my surgery and came to check on me multiple times after to see how I was. Felt very taken care of before and after surgery. He's a very gentle and nice man who knows what he is doing and doesn't disregard what your feeling or experiencing.
