Dr. Dellenbaugh was great. Made me smile even though I was in pain. Explained in detail my injury to my right ankle. Making my appointment with him was quick and when I got there and in checked I only waited about 5 minutes before I was called back into exam room to be seen by him.

I'm so sorry that you feel this way. Orthopaedics has an element of variability in treatment. What I believe should be treated operatively other doctors may treat conservatively.

I was recommending what I felt was best for your injury, and ultimately the choice of treatment is yours.

If I could select zero stars I would. I really can’t say anything positive about this doctor. He was not helpful at all and has poor bedside manor.

I'm sorry that the manner in which I interact with my patients was not satisfying to you. I wish that I knew when you had come to the office and what your specific complaints were so that I could address them.
