He is very thorough and an excellent surgeon. My recovery time was exactly as he described after the arthroscopic surgery. I had a very large calcified parameniscal syst removed. Dr. D. also cleaned up the tear in my lateral meniscus. I have been walking since the day of surgery and have had minimal to no pain throughout my recovery. I began riding my horse a week and a half after surgery. He is also a nice guy.
in Martinez, CA |
Outstanding orthopedic specialist, caring and extremely thorough. Two days after surgery on my left shoulder, the pain I had suffered through for over two years was gone. I have full use of my left shoulder and arm. Dr. Dillingham has treated me also for a knee injury which responded quickly and completely to his care and instructions.
Sacramento, CA |
Outstanding Surgen, listens to concerns and explains the what and why.
in San Francisco, CA |
Dr. Dillingham exudes confidence and knowledge in his abilities. I know he's passionate about getting his patients fixed up and back out doing activities they love. His approach is to take the least invasive path to fixing the body and offers very creative solutions. I feel very lucky to have had the opportunity to use Dr. Dillingham and and thrilled with the results!
San Jose, CA |
If you've managed to injure something, you can expect Dr. Dillingham to be thorough in his evaluation of the problem and to help you decide on the solution best suited to your needs and goals in a straightforward, realistic manner.
in Redding, CA |
Great bedside manner. Willing to take time to explain all options and do so in a thorough manner. Attempted the least invasive, conservative approach before resorting to surgery.
Oakland, CA |
Excellent bedside manner, very dedicated and determined to find the best possible outcome. Methodical with his diagnosis and not quick to cut. Considers the entire body, listens to your concerns and treats you as if you were family. I have had multiple orthopedic surgeons and Doc Dillingham is by far the best doctor I've had. I recommend him to everyone and anyone. I have a very unique and degenerative case and he has been nothing less than amazing!
