Decided to visit Dr. Booton for an annual physical due to his rating and great reviews. Happy with my choice! Wait time was a bit longer than expected but it was my first visit so I wasn't too surprised. Will continue going to his office for my medical needs!

I have had to see many doctors unfortunately. I have seen specialist, surgeons, etc. I have been a skeptic of Primary Care DRs because of past experiences. However, Dr. Booton has been really helpful in listening to how I "say" Iam feeling, not just looking at the tests and medical charts. I am on a better road to getting my life and health back because of him. Five starts isn't even enough. Thank you Dr. Booton.

Office was short-staffed and took about 10mins to greet me, even though I was the only patient waiting. Very friendly and helpful, and let me know what to expect. Took only a few minutes after paperwork was filled out to becalled back. After waiting about 10mins in the waiting room, the doctor came in. Dr. Booten was very thorough, asked a lot of good questions, and created a comprehensive understanding of my symptoms and history. He addressed my concerns in ways I could clearly understand, and put together logical next steps in terms of diagnosing my issues step by step. He is actually interested in digging deeper into issues, instead of just throwing medication at the problem. I'm looking forward to working further with him to help solve some of these issues!

Before my visit, I read several other reviews that spoke about Booton's terrible bedside manner. I'm a pragmatic person, so I didn't pay this too much attention. It was obvious once I got there that his bedside manner was indeed terrible,but the real problem is that it all stemmed from him just not caring. He dismissed my questions and hardly looked me in the eye the entire time. I had some results from blood work I had done independently with my own money (because I'm interested in reaching my optimum health), and he rejected it out of hand, saying I had wasted my money. His goal was clearly just to make sure I wasn't about to die. He didn't care about anything to do with optimizing my health and preventing future problems. He was 25 minutes late to the appointment and clearly was rushing through it so he could be less late to the next one. I'm definitely not coming back.

Dr. Booton was a nice enough man, but he didn't really talk to me much as a person... I felt like I was just another body in his charts to examine. I felt sad and disappointed after seeing him, because heobviously was a smart, respected physician, but he didn't have a warm bedside manner. Plus he made me change into a paper gown just so he could listen to my heart... I definitely didn't need to get undressed for that.

Doc was great, people at the office were great. But when you wait in a exam room for an hour after your appointment time.. it gets a little frustrating. I didnt feel like my time was valued whatsoever. What is thepoint of have appointments if they cant see you within an hour of scheduled?

Saw his backup dr as dr booton was on vacation. The staff and the dr were excellent. Only issue was the wait time, was running behind but worth the wait. The office is small which I liked, not a number buta person. Despite running late, dr took his time. Overall great and area of improvement is staying on time and ensuring the patient knows the time range of delay.

Visit went well. I had expected an annual physical based on the notice they sent that prompted my call for an appt but they didn't expect that, but it was okay anyway. They never seem totally organized. A,strong office manager would help their performance.

I liked that, even though there was a mix up, I was seen by the nurse who took detailed info to pass on to the doctor. That resulted in me not waiting and getting the scripts I needed in a timely fashion. Win win for everyone.

Dr. Booton and his staff were top notch! They were very courteous and very mindful of my concerns. I had some tests run with blood work, and prescriptions filled; all went as smooth as physically possible. They made efforts to haveme feeling comfortable right away and it was more than appreciated. This is not your type of office were everything is very dry, they know how to laugh if something is funny. I like being looked after by real people with the correct medical knowledge instead of overly serious physicians, with the same knowledge, that seem to talk down to their patients. It was the best of professionalism mixed with humanism. It was a perfect, and my personal favorite, visit to the doctor excluding the illness, concerns, and whatnot. They made it as painless as possible. You CANNOT go wrong with Dr. Booton and his staff.

– Dr. Booton is quite friendly, and so was his receptionist. Overall a pleasant experience. However, I really didn't feel like my medical issues were attended to. I felt like Dr. Booton wasn't really listening (had to repeat several things thatI had already said), and his answers were quite generic and unconvincing. Of course, I'm not a doctor – these were just my instinctual reactions to my visit. It's possible that it just wasn't a great personality match.
