We liked the way Dr. Caton explained the options and procedures, and how to make the best decision. However, it took the office staff an unbelievable TWO MONTHS to submit the request for authorization, in spite of our follow-up requests to find out about the delay. We finally changed doctors because we were getting nowhere. This was probably an office personnel problem, but it turned us away.
