    How was your appointment with Dr. Colton?

    Jul 20, 2017
    Dr Colton didn't save my life but he certainly improved its quality! Having been plagued with uncomfortable hemmoroids for several years, he spent time over the course of two visits to help me discover their cause of irritation. Was it bike riding, running, weightlifting, tight clothing? Turns out the cure was hidden in the first question he had asked me early on: Are you eating enough fiber? NOW I am: a TBP of CVS Natural Daily Fiber and wha la! NO SWELLING OR DISCOMFORT AT ALL. Thx Dr C
