I was with Dr. Dinger for over 5 years, even before he had his own practice. He did keep me out of pain for my back but his staff was often very rude. Then his business got so big he didn't have time to see his patients and I had to see a nurse. Well I don't feel like I'm paying to see a nurse and I said so. Also he had not requested an MRI be done in over 5 years. So when I left and went to my primary care provider he said why haven't you had an MRI in all these yrs. I don't know why.

Not only would I - I HAVE!! Dr. Dinger has been treating my spinal discs for years now. I first came to him needing a crutch to walk - and now I am back to exercising (okay, even if a bit limited!) and am completely pain free! Yes, he has advanced in his treatment plan to take care of my pain; which is just fine with me. Most importantly, he is going to treat my adult son who can barely walk and is in excruciating pain all the time. Keep him in your hearts, and I'll keep you informed!
I had an appt at the Madison Oak location. All of the office staff was very friendly! From check-in until I left, every staff member was great. When Dr. Dinger came in he took his time with me. He seemed genuinely interested in my wellbeing.
