Dr. John B Checton has the following 1 specialty

  • Nuclear Medicine

    Nuclear medicine specialists are doctors who have extensive training in the use of nuclear substances, like radiation, to diagnose and treat certain illnesses.
    These specialists perform diagnostic tests in which a small amount of a radioactive substance is injected into a vein, inhaled or taken orally by the patient. The radioactive substance then enables the nuclear medicine specialist to use a scanner to detect the radiation level in the part of the body being examined in order to create an image of it with a computer. The images tell the physician whether there are abnormal changes in metabolism which indicate whether a disease or injury is present. These tests are often used to detect cancer.
    In addition to detecting cancer, substances like radioactive iodine can be either injected into the blood stream or taken orally to fight cancer and other diseases. After being ingested, the substance is absorbed by the thyroid gland and abnormal thyroid tissues are destroyed.

Worth the wait

Wonderful caring physician. He often runs pretty far behind but spends as much time with each patient as they need and makes certain all questions answered. Wouldn't trust any other physician to cath my family members.

Full Review Rating Breakdown

Almost did my mother in. After being my mothers doctor for years, when she needed him the most he could not see her in the hospital. Sent other people in his practice, who did not know her case. Over a year ago put her in hospice because there was nothing that they could do. Thank God she llives to tell the story. Think twice about using these people?
