Great Doctor; trust his judgement after 3 lower back surgeries. I would never go to another Doctor. His staff is great also.

Doctor Dalton ended my 2 1/2+ years of constant pain with a surgical procedure that took less than one hour. I'm not a big fan of surgery and tried many alternative procedures, some of which helped, but none provided a real cure. I found Dr Dalton to be honest, likable, and personable as well as an extremely skilled physician who has perfected his craft. I have recommended him to others and will continue to do so. Thank you Dr. Dalton for a pain free life.

I was in such severe pain due to my back and never had hope of being completely pain free again. Dr Dalton did a spinal fusion and I no longer take any pain meds or nerve blockers to control the pain. I am now finally pain free and I owe it all to Dr Dalton. I recommend anyone having back issues to see him, he definitely knows what he's doing.

After sustaining an awful accident Dr, Dalton performed surgery, partial Corpectomy with Fusion. He is an excellent doctor/surgeon. My neck was once hanging like a thread until Dr. Dalton corrected my cervical spine, I now have balance again, without as much pain and bringing of my neck. Excellent, Ethical and diligent Dr. Thank you Dr. Dalton and your surgical team. Monica Abbate

Due to a motor vehicle accident I injured my spine. I initially had a spinal fusion elsewhere with negative results. I eventually went to Dr. Dalton who repaired the initial fusion & has since conducted 3 other spinal fusions on me. Dr. Dalton has always been very thorough, compassionate & straight forward. He’s a man of integrity who tells it the way it is. I trust him completely with my care.

My review is more of Dr. Dalton's office staff and the problem of obtaining an appt. in an appropriate amount of time. I have been a patient of Dr. Dalton's for >10 years and have had surgery by him 4 x's When I called recently to make an appointment for a flare-up of a previous problem, I was treated very rudely by a scheduler and was told the earliest appointment I could get was 5 months in the future. In my opinion this was very inappropriate. I have never been treated this badly before.
