I have been seeing doctors Dalton and Blumberg for over 20 years and I have to say they're the best! Very kind and compassionate! Dr. Blumberg did my Cervical and Lumbar fusions. Doctor Dalton will do everything he can to avoid you having surgery. They have a fabulous physical therapy team whom I've worked with many times. Dr. Dalton has given me Epidurals many times, including my SI joints with different medications. Yes, the procedure can be a little painful for a few seconds but it's only a few seconds and so worth it! Most of the staff have been with Dr's Blumberg and Dalton since the beginning so you know this is a dedicated team who are all professionals. This is their 3rd location as they have grown to a Great Practice into a Beautiful facility. Everyone I have referred to them has been happy! Praying they stay in practice forever!

BEWARE!!! You should read this in its entirety. In many other reviews, the word ‘compassion’ is used which is something he does not have. I suspect the reviews are written by compensated people to offset his total score based on other reviews about him that I have read with similar experiences. I made the mistake of not reading all the reviews from the various sites prior to my appointment with him. Florida Spine specialists have a large facility with everything under one roof, however I noticed at every visit, the waiting room was empty. I originally made an appointment there because the doctor I was referred to for pain management could not see me for over a week. Dr. Dalton had plenty of appointment space the next day and accepted my insurance. I also should have been on alert when I noticed the state required notice at the reception desk that states that he “DOES NOT CARRY MALPRACTICE INSURANCE”! Through other research, I found that he has had previous legal issues although

What a nice, warm charismatic and caring person! Very intelligent. Took my mother there and he really made a point to talk directly to her, make sure she understood, spoke loud enough for her. She hates doctors, but really liked him and for that I am grateful and happy.

Dr.. Dalton is a compassionate, thoughtful and concerned physician. Over the past 7 years I have been treated for acute back discomfort brought on by degenerative lower back disease. Through the appropriate use of interventional pain management these acute phases have been managed. I hope never to have the need for surgery and am thankful to the team for keeping me out of the OR.; but if I do Dr. Blumberg is the MD i'm going to.

I went to Florida Spine Specialists and saw Dr. Dalton. I was given 6 epidural shots to my spine which did nothing. I was then charged over $3000 for a back brace that I later found out can be purchased for less than $200 online. What a rip-off. Glad I went to a more reputable surgeon to have my fusion surgery. Do your self a favor and choose and STAY AWAY!
