What People Say About Dr. Patrick Dial, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

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.

As a 70 year old with many surgical procedures in my past, it is with total confidence I recommend Dr. Dial. From our first meeting in the hospital to the final post-surgical appointment, his expertise and bedside-manner were totally evident. He was both an effective listener and responded with precise answers to my questions. We found his nurses and office staff to be excellent as well.

Dr Dial and his team are very attentive. From the min I walked in the reception area until the min I departed all staff, nurses and Dr Dial were helpful and caring. Dr Dial listen to all my questions and took the time to to address all of my concerns. I’ve never visited a more caring medical organization. Before this appointment, I last visited Dr Dial’s office about 6 years ago and was glad to see that they continue to strive to make patients comfortable and well taking care of.

My wife has had two major surgeries done by Dr. Dial - a right breast mastectomy and an open resection colectomy. In both procedures, the pre-operative interviews, actual surgeries, and follow-up status briefings were done personally by Dr. Dial. He was articulate, non-rushed, listened attentively, answered our questions, and made clear what options we had to resolve the health issues presented, leaving the ultimate decision to our discretion.
