Specialties

Dr. William C Longton has the following 1 specialty

  • Anesthesiology

    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.

One Star

He might be good at your appointment but his follow thru is a disgrace. You can not talk to him if you have a question and if you leave a message with his assistant it takes 5 days to get back to you at 4:30 when they are closed. If you have issue with your insurance good luck it won't happen because he's to busy to go to bat for you. So disappointed .

Excellent doctor

Dr. Longton deserves five stars as he is the best pain management doctor and I would recommend him to family and friends. He has a very soothing manner and has given me relief for more than one ailment. His sense of humor is very appealing and puts me to ease. I do especially like that he takes time to explain when I have questions.
