I was referred to Dr Dahdaleh by Dr Brayton. It was his opinion that my surgical needs would be better addressed by Dr Dahdaleh who has more experience with a condition like mine. My first pre surgical office visit with Dr Dahdaleh confirmed that I was dealing with the correct people, from the Dr to the entire staff. Everyone I've dealt with has been caring, compassionate, willing to listen to me, and very professional. I could not have found a better environment for my medical needs. I felt that my care was excellent.

Dr. Dahdaleh is not only a fine surgeon, but a compassionate provider. He genuinely cares about his patients and it’s reflected in his care. Very detailed in his discussions, forthright in expectation setting, and personable. I sustained an incomplete Cervical spinal cord injury in a trucking accident that left many of my faculties in disarray. He clearly understood what I was going through and discussed mitigation avenues. Though I still have some issues and deficiencies (see above concerning expectation setting), they are not due to his work, but permanent damage to the cord which is irreversible. Many symptoms greatly improved or vanished after he stabilized my Cervical spine preventing further damage, and I am forever grateful for his intervention and his thoughtful approach to my care. You would be hard pressed to find a better neurosurgeon.

From diagnosis to pre-op through surgery and well into aftercare, Dr. Dahdaleh was clear, direct, and honest with a human lens of compassion. Dahdaleh, the office support, and the hospital care team were attentive and mindful of my personal needs and addressed all my concerns and questions - setting clear expectations for my surgery and hospital visit.

I have had 2 spinal surgeries with Dr. Dahdaleh. He is an extremely wonderful doctor & person! Having worked with surgeons for 40 years, he is one of the most humble & kind ones I have ever known. He is also very diligent at educating you as a patient. The "Get Well Loop" he uses pre & post-operatively is such a helpful app also. The quality of my spinal surgeries are so beneficial. His staff is also wonderful. If I have any questions they are so good to respond quickly & are so kind to talk to. I am so very grateful that I found Dr. Dahdaleh for my surgeries. We live 225 miles from Chicago, but it has been worth every mile we drive! I have recommended him to everyone I have talked to who has any neurological issues- knowing that they will get the best treatment if they go to him! I trust Dr. Dahdaleh completely with my spinal problems.

Dr. Dahdaleh is absolutely wonderful. I have never had surgery in my life and not only that he put my mind to ease from the first moment I met him but also spent over an hour with my husband and I explaining the reasons why surgery was my best option, the procedure itself, what to expect after as well as answer any and all questions we had. He is incredibly kind, caring, knowledgeable, trustworthy and went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable and confident throughout the whole process. My surgery went excellently and I am recovering well. He has followed up with me every step of the way and supported me so I never felt alone. He is a top-notch surgeon and an awesome human being so I highly recommend him.
