About Dr. Ranton

Philosophy of care

I believe that as a physician, I am an educator. The most important way for me to help patients is to use my expertise to provide them with the appropriate information and guidance to make the best personal decisions for their treatment.

Why I entered medicine

My humorous, short, but truthful answer to the question of why I chose this profession is that I did it because someone told me that I couldn’t. The longer answer is that health and science were always my favorite subjects in school, and I spent a lot of my time at my doctor’s office growing up. Over time it became clear that I like to “fix” things and make people feel better. So a major in Pre-medicine with a minor in Psychology seemed to be a perfect fit. Family medicine, in particular, is the ultimate position for me to use all of my strengths and interests to help people feel better – science, education, humanity and compassion.

Personal interests

I have a teenage daughter, two dogs, two cats and two guinea pigs. Most of my spare time is spent making sure they are all taken care of. I am happiest outdoors, so when the weather cooperates, I will be found swimming, doing yard work, playing golf, or tennis. If I am lucky enough to have time to get away, you will find me traveling to anywhere warm.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
