No other doctor would take my difficult case. Dr. Dunton did over 5 yrs. ago his kind and caring spirit told me the full truth and preformed my surgery and cared for me from beginning to end. If I ever need him again or anyone that I know I will not hesitate to refer him or go back myself. Thank you Dr. Charles J. Dunton and his friendly, professional staff. God Bless

This man is far from being a professional he is a downright boor and I would rather die than have him take care of me. Keep away from him as much as you can. He is bipolar and has mood swings.

Dr. Dunton is completely unprofessional and has a horrible bedside manner. How anyone can stand working or being around him is unfathomable.

Used him for a second opinion. After I found out he was wrong about my diagnosis of metastatic cervical cancer I called him. He said that I was wrong it was in my liver and hung up. Well 12 years later I am still here and he was wrong.

Dr. Dunton treated me with the utmost of respect, patience, and kindness. Between office visits, he kept me updated with lab and test result information by phone, in as timely a manner as anyone could imagine possible. He is very humble and low-key, in a very positive way.He welcomed my questions and answered them completely. His staff members are kind and spent extra time with me when I needed it. Dr. Dunton works in a difficult field and has to deliver some difficult news sometimes, but he does so in a kind way, and makes sure he does what needs to be done to keep you healthy or restore your health. He performed surgery on me, and it was highly successful.I do not easily trust many doctors, but I really do trust Dr. Dunton.

This man is a crazy egomaniac!! He switches from a professional to a lunatic whenever he is questioned. His ego is outrageous!! Unfortunately for Dr. Holtz, Dr. Dunton pulls all the puppet strings in the office. His staff is minimally efficient (if you don't count on his receptionist to help you). Dr. Dunton is disgustingly arrogant. He has a monopoly on Lankenau for gyn onc ... when will Lankenau smarten up and get another practice on that floor!! Dr. Dunton should have to sit and take chemo ... that might change his horrible attitude!!

I have experienced professionalism with Dr. Dunton for eight years. He has always answered questions that I have about chemotherapy and radiation. I continue to receive chemotherapy and found that reading about my cancer and talking with other professionals about what I needed for my care helped with asking Dr. Dunton questions. I have sought several second opinions and was treated in a courteous manner when asking for records to be sent to another institution. Having cancer is a difficult journey, since I deal with illness, side effects from drugs, and thoughts about suffering, death, and concern for my family. I appreciate that Dr. Dunton and staff are dedicated to helping women with gyn cancer, since patient care in this sensitive area of life demands patience and attention.

I had a great experience with Doctor Dunton. I was diagnosed on Dec 16 and had surgery on Dec 20. Dr D explained everything and answered all my questions.He even answered all the questions my family asked.I had a terrible experience/ allergic reaction with the first two Chemo treatments and he was right there with me.Dr. Dunton, his staff as well as the Chemo Nurses were fantastic. I am not out of the woods yet, but I beleive that Dr. Dunton saved my life!Pat Kaeser

Dr. Dunton and his ENTIRE staff were wonderful. I felt like I was in great, competent hands. He diagnosed my problem and discussed my options with me and my family. The surgical staff working with Dr. Dunton was exceptional. Everyone of them was professional and caring. The hospital staff was very professional.

Months after my mother died, I still have strongly negative feelings towards this individual. Not an ounce of empathy towards his patients or their families when going through a horrific experience. In talking to other doctors at Lankenau, he is known for his abysmal bedside manner. Believe me, you do not want to have this man as your loved one's doctor.

I met Dr. Dunton because I had just been diagnosed with ovarian cancer.I would definitely recommend Dr. Dunton for anyone who suffers from this disease.He was recommended to me by Dr. John Marks ( a colon specialist ) who is also a highly respected surgeon at Lankenau Hospital, Wynnewood, Pa.Dr. Dunton is a very serious man who battles daily with a very serious disease.When we first met, he laid out his plan for my surgery, chemo and all the treatments necessary. He told me that his experience with his chemo regime was well tolerated and had good results. He had already fixed the date for my surgery with Dr. Marks, because I also needed a second surgeon present since the cancer had spread into my colon. He introduced me to his staff and told me that they, and he would see me before each treatment. He was ready to do battle for me even though I was still stunned because I had no symptoms and did not feel sick. I was very fortunate to have had such a champion take over and take charge over a situation which was out of control for me.It is very reassuring to have someone like that on your side.Everything he said was true. His staff was always friendly and courteous. All of my questions, worries and phone calls were answered quickly. Dr. Dunton even called me at home to give me good reports of my blood work and biopsies and always watched over me in a concerned manner. Even within other areas of the hospital: the labs, special x-ray departments, and the chemo infusion nurses, all were well aware of Dr. Duntons priorities and protocol. He is a true professional. Dr. Duntons focus and his priority is on fighting this disease and saving lives.He saved my life and I am extremely grateful to him.Yours truly, Helen Witlin

Because I'm a long distance patient, 2hrs I very much appreciate the promptness of all of my appointments that I have experienced. On 1 occasion during a snow storm, the office graciously offered to change my appointment to my convenience. Being a cancer patient is not easy. I very much appreciate Dr Dunton's honesty and also his openness to new ideas

I came to Dr. Dunton after being diagnosed elsewhere because my former doctor would not return my phone calls about the diagnosis. Dr. Dunton treated my case with the utmost professionalism. For my LEEP, he would not leave post surgery until he updated my husband in the waiting room. He persoanlly called within 2 days with the pathology results. Now I see his Nurse Practicioner for follow ups, who is also great. She's down to earth and so willing to explain whatever I needed.

Dunton is an awful doctor with a terrible bedside manner. He was arrogant and dismissive when talking to the family about my mothers treatment. When attempting to explain that my mother was dying, we had to corner him while he was doing rounds, drag the information out of him, and he showed no compassion what so ever. Every member of our family left with a bad taste in out mouths after talking to him. If he does have any knowledge about how to treat cancer, he will not share it with the family, so you will not know what he is doing. He hides behind his arrogance and forces you to confront him for information. Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere for care.

Follows an outdated mode of patient-dr relationship. Attitude of "how dare you ask me any questions." Cold, arrogant and I question his course of treatment. Have heard far from glowing opinions of him from other doctors....

This doctor is arrogant and rude. He told my mother to have all of these terrible invasive procedures because he thought she had recurrent cancer. I took her for a second opinion, he was wrong of course and then fired my mother as a patient because he was so angry that we got a second opinion. He was incredibly rude, and caused us so much stress and worry. I think he orders lots of unnecessary tests if you have good insurance.

I agree with the posting from Anonymous 7/02/08...I dealt with Dr. Dunton in 2001 when I was diagnosed with Cervical Cancer at which time he performed my histerectomy. This doctor has no Compassion. He has the worst bedside mannerisms not to mention he is very ARROGANT! He was so rude and short with me I never went back to him for a follow-up, instead I followed up with my GYN doctor who recommended Dr. Dunton. After having the surgery, Dr. Dunton told my husband, he got all the cancer therefore I wouldn't have to have any Chemo or Radiation. In 2008, I was told not only did the Cervical Cancer return but it had spread. Now my life is that of constant testing every couple of months and chemo when needed. I was also told that having Radiation right after the surgery could have possibly prevented the death sentence I was handed in 2008.

Does not explain the diagnosis or treatment. Gave me a life-threatening diagnosis straightforward without saying anything about possiblity of not having it. Underwent psychological distress, anxiety , depression because of this. Still thought it could be another disease with similar symptoms. Told me the worst that could happen in surgery . Brushed off my husband ARROGANTLY with an attitude when he made a request for him to be notified during surgery . No compassion at all. Cannot empathize. Turned out he was wrong in his diagnosis.
