I have been recommending Dr. Dalton for several years now and will continue. He is punctual, explanatory, and detailed. I was in for my pre-op yesterday and he and the nurses explained everything to me in great detail as well as being point-blank about the importance of following the instructions during recovery. I appreciate his candidness and am excited about getting this surgery done so I can recover and get back to some sense of normalcy.

I was seen right on time, and six weeks after my first appointment for a frozen shoulder, I'm feeling great! Dr. Dalton's diagnosis and treatment, including a few weeks of PT, were just what I needed to get back to normal. I highly recommend Dr. Dalton.

My visit with Dr. Dalton today was my first and I felt very comfortable meeting him and the Associates he works with. He treated me with respect and was very professional. He showed concern with the foe the problem I have been dealing with for the last 18 months. I’m glad I had the MRI done. I look forward to him helping me. I have only had wonderful experiences with this medical practice. It is a very good group of Doctors.

I have had Dr. Dalton perform Dupuytrens surgery twice-first an index finger and later a more complicated thumb & little finger combined release. The first time I lived in the Atlanta area. However, I was so pleased with the procedure that I traveled 3 hours from North Carolina to have the second release done. He was able to do both procedures with a local anesthesia, and he and his staff were able to put me at ease both times. I really appreciate his calm, caring manner.
