Not as good as earlier years

Posted on January 24th, 2017

No longer takes true interest in patient needs or true medical problems. The Office Manager is the worst talks to me like I'm a child, does not follow up with patient about test results with problems. She will NOT let me talk to Dr. Compton about any thing. I have been going there for too many years for this kind of abuse from the Office Manager or Doctor, all of the other staff is very courteous and helpful.

Outstanding Healthcare partner

Posted on May 1st, 2011

I've been a paitient of Dr. Compton's for around 20 years. He has always been an outstanding healthcare partner. Always listens, and never pushes treatment. He offers sound medical advice and has been extremely reassuring in some scary times. There have been a few times where I have questioned his diagnoses, but every time he hit the nail on the head. Wonderful General Practicioner and nice guy.

My husband & I have been patients of Dr. Compton for over 20 years and now our grown children are also. He is extremely knowledgable, listens when you talk to him, never pushes you on the time and has Carol who is his fabulous nurse.

I've been a patient of Dr. Compton's for about three years. He has never been rude, the office staff go out of their way to take care of me, and the wait time at the office is amazingly short!
