I have been very impressed by the care I’ve been receiving from Dr. Fenton. He shows great bedside manner and is very thorough! I would love to see more care and compassion shown from the nursing staff. Providing patients with handouts on what to expect following biopsies and/or procedures along with care instructions to follow and when to reach out to the office (ex: listed signs and symptoms of infection) would be greatly beneficial in my opinion. There is often a lot of information thrown at patients and possibly even information that was forgot to pass along at times and having a reference when they get home would be very helpful.

Dr Fenton was fantastic. He did more than I expected and made me feel like I was his only patient; not hurried nor made me feel like I was a bother (some drs do that). He cared and wanted to help me. And he’s seeing me again in three months to make sure I’m doing okay. I thought that was great!

I had never met Dr Fenton before my appointment and was nervous going in knowing it was going to be a “procedure” but he was really nice & made sure I understood everything and was at ease before leaving. Excellent experience! I’m so glad I didn’t hesitate to wait 3 months to see the other physician ❤️

Good for the appointment setting team to tell you what building in the future. I didn't know more than one.
