I have seen *Dr. Payton 2 times and he has been great to me. He will not be able to do surgery on me since he is leaving. But I have an appt. to see his partner.

Dr. Payton removed my gall bladder. I had very little pain. I was up and almost back to normal the very next day. I didn't even need to take the Rx he prescribed. I think he did an excellent job.
