EXCELLENT. The communication / explanation of the procedures was thorough. Dr. Dalton and his PA (Lamar Hood) took the office time to educate me on the whats and whys of their recommended course for my knee. He performed a partial knee replacement on me on May 2020. The office staff well prepared to provide all the information and equipment I would need before and after the surgery.
