About Dr. Layton - Philosophy

After practicing medicine for over 38 years, Dr. Layton has come to believe prevention of a medical illness is the best approach! Searching for underlying causes of a problem, especially a recurring problem like ear or sinus infections in children can ultimately be the least invasive, most cost-effective way of treating a patient.

Medical schools and residency programs train primary care physicians to diagnose disease states and treat problems with medicine or surgery. While this approach is appropriate for a number of medical conditions, many could be avoided if preventative measures are taken.
