I would not recommend Dr Dale. He rushed through my surgery, did not repair everything that was torn. After surgery when I inquired about the repair or lack of repair, his response was that sometime he repairs it and sometimes he doesn't. He had to get home and pick up his kids from daycare.

Dr. Christopher is a very thoughtful doctor. He provides you with a variety of options. My surgery was completed successfully. He's kind and generous with his time.

Dr. Dale was very friendly, knowledgeable and enthusiastic about his profession. Dr. Dale listened carefully to my concerns, performed a careful examination, showed me the details of my x-rays and explained my surgery. He offered other treatments as well and spent as much time with me as I needed.
