Our Mission

Our mission is to provide compassionate, high quality and comprehensive general surgical care in a timely manner to adults and adolescents surrounded by a comforting, small office environment while reflecting God's grace and glory.

Caring Staff

Christian Beliefs

Dr. Claudine E. Siegert and Dr. Gentry S. Caton provide high-quality general and comprehensive surgical care to adults and adolescents in a comforting atmosphere. Both believe that an intimate office setting allows more time for interaction between the patient and physician, which is sometimes lacking from today's health care. This allows for more individualized and personal care.

With a friendly, compassionate, and caring staff, patients' questions and concerns are responded to quickly and professionally.

Our providers specialize in the areas of:

  da Vinci Laparoscopic Surgery






  Advanced Laparoscopic Procedures
