“Having suffered from degenerative arthritis since I was 44, I was anxious when moving to the beach after living in the Charlotte area for over 50 years. I had trusted doctors with years of caring for me. Fortunately, I found OrthoSC (CoastalOrthopedics) 4years ago. They continue the same or higher level of care and compassion for me. They don’t hesitate to do what necessary after exhausting all options quickly and thoroughly. Dr. Gayton and Michael, PA, solved my problem immediately and with ease. Appointments are always timely, and I leave knowing my question has been giving the best concern.”

“Dr. Gayton was awesome from the minute I first walked in the door with a fractured right wrist! He was very comforting & compassionate! He answered all my questions, some before I even asked! He tried to prevent me from having surgery with other options, but ultimately, surgery was necessary. I'm grateful to him for his wisdom & knowledge to know exactly what I needed throughout the whole ordeal. It was a very overwhelming, emotional situation for me to not have use of my dominate hand. He always assured me each time I saw him that I would get through it and I did with great strides!! My scar looks amazing and will barely be noticeable! Thank You Dr. Gayton for being the best!! YOU ROCK!!”
