  • Dr. Staunton is the absolutely best M. D. That my wife and I have ever used. There are not enough words of praise that I can write that truly commends the quality of medical care that Dr. Staunton routinely provides my family and myself. What a wonderful Dr. Michele Staunton is !!!!!
    Doc Staunton is the BEST!
    Dr Michele Staunton is without a doubt the most knowledgeable,professional and caring physician I have had. She is the example ALL other physicians should aspire to. Her front and back office personnel are also professional, helpful and caring.
    No bad experiences with Dr. Staunton.
    Still think Dr. Staunton should go into concierge medicine. I would recommend Dr. Staunton to anyone, but as far as Mission hospital questionable. She is a separate entity from the hospital care and concern. Mission hospital is not as superior as it used to be when my mother was alive. Dr. Staunton is a very caring and professional doctor.
