Guthrie Patient: February 2019
he was amazing and patient with *name removed*. comforting and answered all her questions. I could not have asked for a better experience either time we were in his care
Guthrie Patient: February 2019
Dr. Appleton is the best thing that ever happened to me. sometimes, he's the only good thing in my life. the continuity of care is essential. the worst doctor I ever had was a Guthrie physician, many years ago, and Dr. Appleton washed it all away: he redeemed the system and renewed my faith in doctors. i finally felt I could trust someone and relax around him. he truly cares. he's very perceptive, understands the issues, articulates them precisely, but is patient and kind
Guthrie Patient: February 2019
Good on giving pain relief meds NOT good about EXPLAINING source of pain - details about about bones VERSUS or bone healing to bones & what else? AROUND BONES.
Guthrie Patient: February 2019
Amazed that severity of injury was repaired so well and rehabilitation for (ROM) initiated post op.
Guthrie Patient: December 2018
Dr. Appleton printed out and interpreted a whole-body CT report from the night of my accident that I needed for a different heath concern. He is always ready to help, without hesitation. He sees the best in people; he is positive, generous, upbeat, always has something nice to say.
Guthrie Patient: December 2018
good honest about recovery drgree and time; upbeat about progress seen on xrays and degree of physical improvement listened to p.t. expeiences which i like/
Guthrie Patient: November 2018
Dr. Appleton greeted me with his welcoming smile (even though he might well not have had a reason to smile that day). He was happy for me that my foot was looking so much better. It was because of him that I was able to persist in finding the specialist who was able to make it right. All the other surgeons told me not to bother, that I should just accept it as it was, and it wasn't that bad. It turned out it did need quite a lot of adjustment. Only Dr. Appleton stuck with me the whole time, and gave me the support I needed to see it through. When I first looked up at him in the ER that first night after the accident, he was hovering over me with a look of grave concern on his face, and told me he'd try to save my foot; he was already wearing his blue surgical cap, with a bright light behind his head. It was like I was looking at an angel. And he has been my guardian angel ever since.
