Patient Reviews (4)
in Plainfield, IL |
I saw Dr D for a '2nd opinion' (4th opinion actually). He was extremely thorough, knowledgeable, and patient. I had numerous questions and he answered them all in full detail. While I know he is busy, it felt as if I was his only patient. He speaks very clearly, and in terms that the average person can easily understand. I also appreciate that he wants to share my case with a group of other surgeons before making a final recommendation. I feel extremely confident putting my health in his hands.
in Deerfield, Il |
Very compassionate, conservative. Makes sure you understand everything about your case and what to expect from the surgery. excellent communicator and very accomplished in his expertise. HAd an excellent experience with him.
in Chicago, IL |
I did not have a positive experience with Dr. Dahdaleh. I was having such horrible back pain that I spent my entire appointment lying on the exam table trying not to vomit. I left the appointment feeling like I was treated as a "drug-seeker" and that the severity of my situation was completely dismissed. Even after a trip to the ER and an MRI showing a severe back injury, Dr. Dahdaleh would not see me again for weeks. I went to Midwest Ortho at Rush instead and had surgery within a week.
in Minier, IL |
This man gave me my life back. He doesn't mess around and he gets the job done. I am thrilled that I had Dr. D as my surgeon. I had a 3 level fusion in my neck. I was in the neck collar for just short of 12 weeks. I know I have a long way to go before the healing is complete, but I feel 70% better than I have in years. I would highly recommend Dr. Dahdelah if you have neck or back problems requiring surgery. I live about 150 miles south of Chicago and it is more than worth the drive!
