Not good! He was to decompress my lumbar spine, "clean out" stenosis, and fuse it. He fused me, & found an "annoyance" during surgery, and never bothered to decompress me, but of course he never admitted that. After 8 months of debilitating pain as before the surgery he ordered more x-rays & mri. Then he told me my low back was a mess, I could "try decompression therapy", and asked had I considered disability!! I left his office sick & in shock, immediately went to my physical therapist, and she said fusion patients can never, ever do decompression therapy, and was stunned he had suggested it. Today I can barely walk, I'm hunched over like a 90 year old (I'm early 50's), and I have zero quality of life!! But I REFUSE to consider disability, I still work, in spite of the shape this guy left me in.

I saw Dr. Dalton in 1996, discectomy in 97. He discovered a herniated disc that was very problematic that other doctors either over looked or missed all together. The Ortho doctors I had went to only read the MRI report and going by a mistake made by the radiologist. Dr. Dalton actually read the MRI and accurately diagnosed it within 1-3 minutes. Thumbs down Meadville Medical Center, thumbs up Dr Dalton.

I did wait to get an appointment, but it was worth the wait. Very prompt and professional doctor. He listened to me and understood my issues before treating me. He did take lot of time to order additional test, which I though was excessive at first but now I realize they were necessary to really understand my situation. He tried to avoid surgery, but my case was too bad for that. Surgery went great. I am very happy.
