Patient Reviews

The following are reviews from patients of Dr. Dale.

“I had hip replacement surgery performed by Dr. Paul Dale. I have since been back to Heartland for PT and for a 4 week follow-up with Dr. Dale. Dr. Dale took the time to ask questions and to answer questions I had. I was treated as though I was the only patient that day and have had all questions answered. Thank you Dr. Dale for making this journey as pleasant and easy as it could possibly be. It's been a great experience.”

“Dr. Dale took the necessary time to describe the procedure thoroughly, including preparation, what to expect following the surgery, and answered every question thoroughly and completely. He came through on every promise he made. Thank you, Dr. Dale! Peg handled most of the details like scheduling and was a fantastic source of information and encouragement. She is worth her weight in gold! Thank you, Peg! All the nurses were caring, considerate and extremely patient considering that I was not the most patient of patients. Each one of them deserves a special place in history. The receptionists are the best. I greeted by name and with a smile every time I showed up for an appointment. Every member of the Heartland Orthopedic Specialists staff deserves recognition as consummate professionals among their peers. Thank you all!”

“A follow-up to knee replacement surgery previously. The entire process from pre-surgery to post-treatments have been accompanied by some of the most professional people I have ever met. Though every step, I was treated with respect and my comments, questions, and conversations were all treated patiently and explained in a manner I could understand. No one is ever really comfortable when approaching major surgery, but these folks made it much less stressful by steadfast assurance of how this was going to all play out and they were correct. I couldn't be more pleased with the result, and I have the experts at Heartland to thank for my being able to do the things I hadn't been able to do for years, like walk comfortably and doing necessary outside chores.”

“The right middle finger kept locking. A steroid injection quieted it. Now only extreme clenching causes a "catching." I am grateful for this expert help.”
