Excellent surgeon. I basically exploded my Calcaneus & was lucky enough to be referred to Dr Dalstrom. Not only was he able to piece the puzzle back together but he did so in a fashion that healed way faster than what I was expecting without any complications. Foot injuries are complicated & he knows how to treat them properly. The whole staff at Torrey Pines is very nice & caring. I highly recommend Dr Dalstrom & Torrey Pines to anyone unfortunate enough to need their services.

From the moment myhusband had his first appointment we knew we made the best decision! Dr. Dalstrom is personable, honest, kind, caring and so knowledgeable. My husband had surgery today and it was an amazing experience from beginning to end. You can't go wrong with this doc!

Couldn't agree more with the other comment. I've had more problems since I've seen him and he couldn't have been more disinterested. Didn;t show my the MRI results, just spoke to them. I've been to 2 other doctors since and I noticed that they asked me to walk so they could see what my ankle was doing, and I've been to Dr Dalstrom 3 times and he hasn't once asked to see me do anything.

If you have foot problems- avoid him! He misdiagnosed my problem and couldn't have been more uninterested in steering me in the right direction. A waste of time and money. Frustrating.

Doctor Dalstrom did an incredible job of repairing my foot. I had a less than satisfactory surgical experience with another doctor. He corrected their mistake and I was back to functioning very well under his skillful eye. I recently injured the same foot and he went out of his way to see me and fixed it right then and there. Please save yourself any trouble and see him first. He is professional and very personable. Thank you Dr. Dalstrom.
