Surgical Oncology

I liked how Dr Pelton explained the problem including different courses of soutions after the next scan is finished.
Extremely pleased with the service received at Dr Pelton's office. The receptionist and nurse have great customer services skills - both of them and the doctor were professional and answered all of my questions.
Loved the personable but professional staff and Dr. Pelton's demeanor is above reproach!! He is also so personable yet professional. I wholeheartedly trust Dr. Pelton and his staff.
