Dr. Shelton's office is truly unique. Not only is everyone pleasant and caring, but the level of professionalism is the very highest. I never for one moment doubted that I was receiving the very best care possible, and I was made to feel like I was the only patient that existed. In the hustle and bustle of New York, Dr. Shelton's office is a rarity and an oasis indeed.

Healing: the processes from diagnosis through post operative experience

I have been in medical settings from the time I was five. First as a family member, then as a patient and finally as a professional. I can honestly state that I come well informed and prepared for this review. I normally do not answer surveys or write reviews, as they are only my perspective and not necessarily applicable to anyone else. This time however, it is different. From the moment of contact, I was keenly aware that I had found an environment which would initiate and enhance the processes of my healing as well as others. Upon opening the door to Dr. Shelton's office there is a feeling of safety and professionalism. It starts with the ambiance of the waiting room and the attentiveness of the the staff. Even though, on the day of the consultation and the day of my procedure other patients were there, I sensed that it was all about my own well being, but then again so did each of the other patients waiting to be seen. As I entered the examination room, following a staff person, the smile on his face and the words of concern made my rapid breathing slow down and a calmness settled in. In my head was a check list, questions I needed to ask and answered without being patronize. Before and after the event I was given clearly written instructions as to what to expect and what i needed to do. So without this becoming a tome, let me give you my observations: a physician who never once made me aware of his time frame. Staff who gave me a comfort ball just in case I needed to squeeze something as the needle filled with anesthsia entered the site along with a massage to focus my attention away from the surgery and onto a very pleasant intervention. Dr. Shelton took his time administering the anesthsia so that it would be painless and kept checking with me to see if he accomplished that goal. He did! Everyone 's threshold for pain is different, but I never felt any pain or discomfort. Even during the surgery I was asking questions and making comments to alleviate my anxiety, never once did Dr. Shelton stop me or indicate any impatience. How rare. But that is what the medical experience should be. Quality and patient care not quantity and speed. For me, it is not necessarily the final outcome, but the path that I will travel on to get there. Finally, after getting home and resting for a while, the phone rang. On the other end was not a computerized or staff person telling me what to do in an emergency, but Dr. Shelton calling to inquire as to how I was doing and if there was any concern I should call his service at any hour of the evening and they will get him. Yes, healing from onset of diagnosis to post operative procedures. How rare, but essential.

From the time I called the office for an appointment I could not have been treated with more respect.The staff listened to my problem, gave me an appointment that was convenient and did all of the little things to make me feel that my visit there was very special. Dr. Shelton was warm, friendly and professional at the same time. He explained to me exactly what was necessary to surgically treat my lesion and how it would be done so that it would have the least cosmetic impact. When I returned for the surgery the care was superb. Everything was done to put me at ease prior to the surgery and during it. I walked out understanding with a complete understanding of what was necessary for my postoperative care as well as what restrictions I had to follow. The care could not be more caring or complete.

Incredibly Versatile Dermatologic Surgeon

What I find remarkable about Dr. Shelton is that his competence, patience and kindness lie not only in the area of medical dermatological issues but in the aesthetic realm as well. He is very skilled in removing a mole with barely a scar as he is in providing Botox, fillers and enhancing the patients appearance. ...L.R.
