VERY DISAPPOINTING. Felt he was not the less interested in my welfare. Did not offer any advice for relief - exercises, PT. pain control. Never reviewed x-rays taken a few weeks earlier at Ortho walkin clinic. Spent probably 2 minutes total time with me. My foot was very painful and he had no suggestions except orthotics. He then handed me his card ! Never had a doctor hand me his card. The appointment was useless and added to my pain since I had to do more walking and for nothing. It seemed like I was a waste of his valuable time. AS a patient I felt he did not care ! Also he had a man with him (street clothes). I do not recall being introduced and what his purpose was. The aide had to recall MD since I wanted to know about pain meds. What he prescribed was unusable since I am on a daily aspirin for my heart and this med said DO NOT TAKE IF ON ASPIRIN. Read records ? I doubt it. So I left with additional pain and no clear direction for relief.

Dr. Dellenbaugh is an incredible asset to OrthoNY. I had an tendon issue in my ankle and he was clear, kind, compassionate and helpful! During my ankle surgery, the ankle was more damaged than initially thought and he did a great job repairing everything and explaining it all to my partner -his explanation was clear and compassionate in the hospital. He never seems rushed and answers all of the questions that I have. Not to mention his staff is exceptional, I will never forget how kind the woman was who took my cast off after surgery-it was a stressful time and she was very helpful. I appreciate that he was always to the point and knowledgeable of our interactions- he records notes after every interaction verbally and uses them as he started every conversation right where the last one left off. He was consistently cordial, professional courteous- that is how I would describe each encounter.

I didn’t have a choice in doctors as I needed emergency surgery, but I’m so glad Dr. Dellenbaugh was the one who who did my procedure. He was great from the start and really helped calm my nerves going into surgery. He took the time to explain what was going to happen and what I could expect. I would highly recommend him!

My son and I met the doctor for the first time today. He introduced himself to my 9 year old and shook his hand. This action alone eased my child's tensions. The doctor took his time explaining and actually showing us on a model what was happening with my son's ankle/foot. We still have what could potentially be a long road ahead of us but with this as our first experience I couldn't be more pleased. When a 9 year old leaves a doctors office with a smile on his face, that doctor is doing something right.

Never see a Doctor when he has his bags packed and is ready for Christmas vacation. Diagnosed my husband with achilles tendonitis and Plantar fascitis, suggested putting a cast on his leg. My husband was a diabeticm with a open wound on his heel. I was assured it would be fine 6 weeks later my husbands leg was completly infected, his toes had turned black and the heel was ganggreen. Several surgeries, a toe amputation and several skin grafts. When doc says UHOH as he removes cast RUN

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.

First of all he was rude when I had questions, couldn't answer them and was actually MAD I was asking them. I was extremely uncomfortable with his demeanor. He claims here that he treats as conservatively as possible and surgery being a last option. This is totally false. He told me I could cast or surgery. He pushed surgery HARD. I ended up cancelling the procedure and getting a second opinion at Bone and Joint. So glad I did. Surgery was an aggressive route and unnecessary for my fracture.

Dr. Dellenbaugh is a phenomenal physician! I’ve had experiences with other ortho providers and Dr. D far exceeded all other encounters. He is patient and answers all questions honestly. As a surgeon he does great work and really cares how his patients are post operatively. I highly recommend Dr. D if you need an ankle/foot doc!

Dr. Dellenbaugh is the exact opposite of what you would expect of an orthopedic surgeon, he's down to earth and explains everything throughly!!! He spends the time to get to know you as a person and not as a dollar sign. breath of fresh air, a dr that actually cares about your recovery!
