Very compassionate surgeon. Observed me in hospital for a few days seen my symptoms weren't getting any better and decided surgery was the best route so did surgery. I feel better and that's that

We are very pleased with Dr. Dial and his staff. Dr. Dial was able to repair issues that developed as a result of previous surgeries accomplished by someone else. He is also keeping track of my recovery progress to help ensure my issues do not reoccur.

Dr Dial and his staff, Tammy and Jamie took amazing care of me. Dr Dial spent the time to explain my procedure in detail and made sure I understood any and all challenges. My surgery was uneventful, my 8.5" incision was precisely stitched, and he has been prompt and listened to my concerns in my follow-ups. He is patient, educational, and make me feel comfortable. Tammy has been easily contacted and replied swiftly to set up appts, and Jamie has been helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly in assisting Dr Dial. I cannot stress enough how much I appreciate the service and care I received in the hands of this group.

When facing surgery after a cancer diagnosis, there was no question in my mind as to the surgeon that I wanted. Having been the surgeon for many friends and family, he was the immediate pick. Dr. Dial was both reassuring and confident in my treatment plan. He knew that we needed to treat this aggressively and scheduled my surgery for the next week. His knowledge and skill was very evident through my surgery and recovery. I would, and have, recommended Dr. Patrick Dial to anyone that is facing surgery. To me, he is unmatched in his expertise.

Dr. Dial is so knowledgeable and approachable that many times I though I was taking to a very good friend rather then a doctor. He answered all my concerns and even covered things I never even thought of. He was called to be a doctor and his concern for me eased all my worries.

I could not have asked for a better surgeon. He was able to cut out all of the melanoma and the associated lymph node. Pet scan showed no residual cancer left.
