I had knee problems so I made an appointment to see Dr. Dietrich. I never saw the doctor, just an arrogant Physicians Assistant. He scheduled me for knee surgery despite my never seen the doctor. I cancelled the appointment and did therapy exercises. It got better on its on. I wasted my money..

Dr. David Dietrich provided phenomenal care when I broke my both my tib and fib in an accident. Not only did he patch me up to full recovery, I am very grateful that he ensured I was not left depending on narcotics for pain management. I don't live in the area at this time, but I would definitely want him to be my doctor if I ever break another bone!

Dr. Dietrich is a EXCELLENT Pysician in my opinion. I have had a few steroid knee injections with him. He is the most compassionate doctor I have ever had. My husband has had several procedures with him as well & we just have have nothing but great experience with him and his staff! I will continue to recommend him to everyone needing Orthopedic care,

Brock elbow, needed prosthetic. ER sent me to Dietrich, nurse said No new patients. Nurse next door sent me back to Dietrick. I got appt 2 days after, No Dr. I saw x-ray tech. 2 days later I see Dr. He says U waited 4 days to see me, elbows R tricky, may not get full range of motion back. Scheduled surgery next day. Saw Dr. 3 times, & x-ray tech 5 times in 3 mo, & 2 mo therapy. Insurance changes to Cigna, Dr. & therapy won't accept. No Dr. on last visit. Did my own therapy. Arm will bend 90%

Excellent surgeon. Well respected in the medical community in Panama City. A very thorough pre-op exam and complete follow up after surgery. Would return for any future surgeries. He would definitely be my first choice.
