I had abdominal hernias from work related injury, & wanted to have them repaired before they got any worse. Dr Dilworth was very informative explained the surgery & what kind of mesh he would use. He answered all my questions & concerns, has excellent bedside manner. The staff was also very helpful, making check up calls after surgery to make sure I was feeling ok & if I had any questions as well as keeping up to date for my post op appointments. I would highly recommend Dr. Dilworth

Dr. Dilworth was my first and only choice when it came to my hernia repair. He not only took the time to completely explain my individual situation but also showed me the exact repair and the appliance that was going to be used. While be admitted to the hospital for my procedure, he came and explained everything to my family and what should be expected after surgery. the follow up visits were quick and painless as his staff got me in and out quickly. His staff handled all the needed preparation

Dr. Dilworth was my second opinion; I'm glad I went to him. He used appropriate diagnostics and found the actual problem right away. He removed my gallbladder and repaired two abdominal hernias--he was unaware of one before going in but repaired it anyway (it was tangled/hidden in belly fat). He answered questions and explained everything in detail. I'll be going back to him if I ever need surgery again.

Very personable and knowledgeable! I was diagnosed with a hernia by my primary saw Dr. Dilworth within a few days and 2 weeks later it was repaired. Highly recommend Dr. Dilworth. My boyfriend had used him for a hernia repair 6 years earlier and that went very smoothly too, one of the reasons I chose to see him for my hernia.

Dr. Dilworth was very thorough in his explanation of the procedure. I wasn't surprised by anything during my recovery due to the information I received from him. I never had to wait long for any of my appointments and never felt rushed in or out.

Dr Dilworth explained the procedure in detail, showed me the appliance he would use, described what the scar would look like, and answered all my questions. I am very satisfied with the results and feel much better after having the surgery. Recovery time was short, and the follow-up visit was pleasant.

Dr. Dilworth is very personable. I was impressed with the amount of info he gives you in an easy to understand conversation. He actually talks to you! He listens and addresses any concerns in a clear and concise way. He was friendly and inclusive with my family. The procedure was successful, with barely any visible scarring. The day of surgery he goes over everything again, making sure you understand and are comfortable. The results are fantastic! I would recommend him to friends and family.
