Went there with my daughter who was hurt on the job worker’s compensation Dr. He’s a quack!! I was under the impression he must of been on meds-illicit drugs-?? He kept twitching and moving around in his seat putting his hands over his head. It was very strange no way in hell would I let him perform any surgery on my daughter!! I had to ask him for neurontin for her then he said it will be awhile due to getting approval from worker’s compensation, I said well I have some left over he then advised me to give my daughter my prescription!!!! Told her to try out my meds before he writes a prescription. That was it I was dumb founded that a medical professional would advise me to do that!!! Needless to say we are searching for a new Dr. He doesn’t listen and when you ask questions he acts annoyed by them. I’d highly suggest to look for a more professional Dr. and if you let him perform any surgery I’d suggest requesting him to take a drug and alcohol test before hand!!

Dr. Deitel has been treating our back pain for five years. He is very personable and suggests injections in the back before suggesting surgery.

Dr. Deitel is a wonderful, skilled doctor who has treated me for severe sciatica and spinal stenosis. I was unable to function before finding him through a friend. He always finds the most conservative way to treat you before more aggressive treatments. I don’t know where I would be without his kind skillful treatment!

Dr. Deitel did back surgery on me in 2012 for a herniated disc (L4-5). He did an excellent job, was always professional and personable and I would gladly go back to him if I had any further serious back problems. Highly recommended.

He was a work comp doctor I saw 3/25/19, This doctor did not care for me at all.I told him I have back pain and even fractured it in 2015, 3 other doctors say I needed surgery, Dr. Dietal said after viewing the MRI and Xray that i'm fine said its a strain. I told him i'm in pain everyday it hurts to sit/stand/ bend/ lift/ and walk. The doctor told me to touch my toes and then felt my back and said "yeahh". Then he said I can give you physical therapy, I told him it doesn't help and I would like

This guy is the worst.......I would suggest he take up a career in auto body maintenance following my experience with him. While I was hospitalized, he initially refused to come to the hospital (despite being taken their by ambulance and an inability to walk). When he finally showed up, he stated, "You can't be in that much pain," and then walked out the door. Good news? I fired him that day. Stay away from this guy!!!!!

I was so disappointed in my most recent visit with Dr. Deitel. I went to him to talk about a, current serious medical condition, that I have recently encountered and he spent "my office visit time" discussing another Dr./friend of his and HIS current medical condition. I was extremely saddened by this behavior.

I had an injury involving a herniated disc. Dr. Deitel started out ok, but he started to push me towards surgery before letting me go through other less invasive options. When I expressed that I wanted to hold off surgery until I exhausted other options, he became confrontational, dismissive, impatient, and condescending. Because I didn’t want to do the surgery that he wanted to do right away, he sent me back to work, even though I was still in pain. I would not recommend him to anyone, ever.

Excellent Doctor, was concerned in providing any immediate relief, for my pain, that he could. Answered all my questions, took the time to explain any areas I was still unclear on. I will be recommending him to family and friends.
