Specialties

Dr. John Dinsmore has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatric Surgery

    A pediatric surgeon is a qualified surgeon who has additional training in performing surgery on young patients, including fetuses (neonatal or fetal surgery), infants, children, adolescents and teenagers.
    Because pediatric patients are still growing and developing, they are often more difficult to operate on than adults. These patients have smaller bodies and smaller organs requiring even more of a precise and measured approach by a surgeon.
    Some of the conditions that may require the care of a pediatric surgeon are congenital malformations, such as cleft lip and palate, abdominal wall defects, like hernias, deformities of the chest wall, childhood tumors, like neuroblastomas and separation of conjoined twins.

  • General Surgery

    A surgical specialist is a physician who has additional training in a specific area of surgery.
    The American Board of Medical Specialties acknowledges the following surgical specialties: general surgery, thoracic and cardiac surgery, colon and rectal surgery, obstetrics and gynecological surgery, neurological surgery, ophthalmic surgery, oral and maxillofacial surgery, orthopedic surgery, otolaryngological surgery, pediatric surgery, plastic surgery, urological surgery, and vascular surgery.
    Some procedures are performed by more than one type of specialist. Also, some surgeons may choose to specialize in specific procedures within their specialty area. For example, a plastic and maxillofacial surgeon may specialize in performing rhinoplasty procedures.

Overpriced and offered nothing beyond a standard pediatrician

Charged over $250 (after insurance) to dab silver nitrate on my 2 month old's belly button. This was supposed to be a "consultation" after my pediatrician did the same thing to make sure this was all that was needed. I wish they would have told me they overcharge so I could have had my pediatrician do it! Called to discuss it and they were rude. Highly recommend finding someone else (non-Carilion)!

Mom

Dr. Dinsmore and his staff were fanimonial in their care of my son. Having to hear that your 10 year old needs an emergency appendectomy was very scary. His confidence and calm demeanor made my husband and I feel at ease. It is not easy to trust anyone with your children but with Dr. Dinsmore that was never a concern.
