He took the time we needed to understand what was happening with me. He was much much better at this than what we had experienced with an earlier provider at another facility.

7/23/2015

They told us results of routine tests, and took the time to show us the MRI pictures and explained how my brain tumor was resolving gradually as expected since the gamma knife procedure.

6/4/2015

We cannot say enough good about Dr. Laxton. He demonstrated a level of compassion, empathy, and professionalism that made me feel so confident in submitting myself to his care.

3/13/2015

Great.

3/2/2015

Great.

2/13/2015

This was the first time I felt like I had a say in treatment; doctor at OTHER facilities did not give me this opportunity!

12/1/2014

Had heard excellent remarks about your hospital and found them to be very true.

10/28/2014

*Dr. Laxton was wonderful.

10/8/2014

All good.
