Care Philosophy

Thank you for learning more about me!  I believe that the most important factor for successful treatment is to remove fear and uncertainty from one's healthcare experience.  We are in the age of informaton and unfortunately MISinformation.  Healthcare professionals are bogged down with excessive paperwork, acronyms, and regulations that only put our patients in further uneasiness.

I encourage questions and your time is important to us. The physicians at OrthoAtlanta want you to take advantage of the patient portal to you don't wast time on the telephone.

We will treat you with the utmost respect and always have your safety and well-being in mind.

I understand that the vast majority of my patients come with an injury and/or pain that was unforseen and quite inconvenient.  I will strive to comfort you through this experience and get you back to productivity as soon as possible.

in Cumming, GA |
I would definitely recommend Dr. Dalal for Carpal Tunnel release based on my specific surgery results. He evaluated the source of my problem which may have included a possible pinched nerve in my neck. The neck and wrist ex-rays, along with hand and arm nerve assessment proved the best approach was to do the Carpal Tunnel . We mutually agreed to initially focus on the less invasive surgery to eliminate the numbness in my hand. The surgery went extremely well and achieved the desired result.
