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!

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.

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!

He is a great Dr. Takes his time and listens to the problem. Doesn't jump into surgery.

About Me

Care Philosophy

I try to treat all patients with the dignity and respect they deserve.   I attempt to treat all problems conservatively, if possible, and then move to surgical treatment if that fails.
