I will always recommend Dr. Dalton. Mys shoulder replacement surgery went so well, it is actually hard to believe where i am today. I have healed incredibly fast which is nothing less than a blessing. I feel that Dr. Dalton performed perfectly correct and exact surgery on my shoulder and that their team of physical therapist and occupational therapist are overly well versed in their field. I am grateful and appreciative to all of them.

Dr. Dalton is fantastic. Two of my fingers were badly injured in a home accident. Dr. Dalton calmly stitched them up and assured me everything was going to be ok. He took time out of his incredibly busy schedule to help save my fingers and I never once felt like he was rushing to finish the procedure. I thank God and Dr. Dalton that my fingers are still intact and fully functioning. I would highly recommend Dr. Dalton; he is knowledgeable, pleasant and I always feel I am getting his undivided attention.

Dr Dalton was pleasant and explained things very well. He answered my questions. My criticism is that I had to wait over an hour past my appointment before being triaged and the another almost 30 minutes before I was taken to an exam room. Maybe they are short staffed now.

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.
