Verified Patient Reviews
Personable, knowledgeable, excellent hand specialist.
Professional and personable staff, from Lynette who checked me in to nurse Andrea and Dr. Britton.
Very professional, and took the time to answer my questions.
Very prompt, professional care. Dr. Britton considered my needs and gave me more than one option for treatment. He explained my condition in detail and provided clear post-procedure and follow-up instructions. Office and clinical staff were very professional as well.
I've seen Dr. Britton for 3 other instances and am very pleased with his work.
Very nice, I didnt feel like I was inconvenienceing him. He listened to my concerns.
I had multiple scheduling issues with this office. On the morning of my appointment, I tried to call the office several times to confirm the appointment time, but could not get through. After arriving at the office I was told my appointment time was not for almost another hour. Our appointment time came, and we still waited a very long time to see the doctor. In total we were at this office for about 2 hours. The doctor was ok, but I would probably not choose this office again.
