“Dr. Gayton is wonderful. He is a compassionate, caring, competent doctor. I had carpal tunnel syndrome surgery performed by doctor Gaytin. He answered all my questions in a truthful, straightforward manner. The day of my surgery, he came and stood next to me to reassure me and asked if I would mind him praying for me before I went in. The surgery was completely successful and the pain was gone. I have had none of the terrible numbness in my fingers since that day. I would highly recommend Coastal orthopedics to anyone that has joint problems or pain. They are a group of dedicated, professional, physicians that take their work seriously and with a compassionate view.”
