Dr. Harvey H Dayton Jr has the following 5 specialties
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
- Cardiovascular Disease
Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.
- Critical Care Medicine
Also sometimes referred to as intensivists, critical care specialists are physicians with specialized training in the diagnosis and management of life-threatening conditions. Some of these conditions affect vital organs like the heart and lungs, those that make breathing difficult or impossible, and those that affect entire organ systems, like the renal system.
Critical care specialists are typically found in a hospital's intensive care unit where they monitor patients with life-threatening conditions and make determinations as to the best course of treatment.
- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Dr. Dayton is not too bad and his receptionist at the window is nice,but some of the nurses he has are really disrespectful and rude. If it was me I would fire their a*s! Some people in the world have to work for a living and just can't come in to see the doctor whenever and this doctor office will not call in a refill unless you come in. Also if you are just 2 minutes late and even though they are supposed to stay open until 12:00 noon on Friday,they will lock the door at 11:30 and say they are closed. 2 minutes! Really! Come on!!! Most doctors these days do not care about their patients,just about the money!!! They don't like to wait on a patient for 2 minutes but they expect you to wait for hours sometimes just to see them!
I called to see if Dr. Dayton was accepting new patients, We are new to the area and he is on the "in network" list for our health insurance, I asked the receptionist and was promptly told that the doctor "...will not fill pain medication prescriptions or narcotic prescriptions." I was taken aback! I repeated my initial inquiry, that I was wondering if Dr. Dayton was accepting new patients as I am looking for a new doctor for my family (I mentioned NOTHING about prescriptions or refills or pain or narcotics), to which she replied, "Yes, but he won't fill any narcotic or pain medication prescriptions." I asked how old the Doctor was, she had no idea (Really? Is he 30? 60? In between?). I am not sure what goes on in this office, but my interaction with the receptionist was enough for me to scratch Dr. Dayton off my list.
