Patient Reviews

The following are reviews from patients of Dr. Dolphin.

“Dr. Dolphin is very pleasant to talk to. He explained my issue, what needed to be done, and what to expect after surgery. He answered all my questions. My surgery went very well. The results matched his expectations. I have no trouble recommending him and feel fortunate to have had him as my surgeon. No spine surgery is pain-free, but within a week, I was well on my way to recovery and nearly pain-free.”

“I knew his face from one of the hospitals, and he would always smile and nod his head to say hello when coming through. On my first visit with him, he said, "now I finally can put a name with the face." This made me feel special, and ever since then, I have known that he was a great person. So my experience was going to be great because Dr. Dolphin is a great man. Thanks to him and the staff for being there for me.”

“This was my initial visit with Dr. Dolphin as a referral from a regular doctor. After an MRI showed spinal stenosis. Dr. Dolphin explained my issue very clearly, and I think we developed a course of treatment that will result in a good outcome. Surgery may be required in the end. I am confident Dr. Dolphin will do this most professionally and competently.”

“I was referred to Dr. Dolphin by physicians I had seen in my hometown. I was very anxious and fearful of letting a Doctor I didn’t know doing surgery on me. I have worked in the medical field for over 35 years and was very comfortable with the physicians I know and worked with. I was having so much pain I knew I had to have this surgery. I also have fibromyalgia and have had some really serious pain after many procedures—really uncontrollable pain. Dr. Dolphin and his team were great. They reassured me and explained the whole procedure to me. I felt very comfortable going into the procedure. Just this really surprised me. After the procedure, they explained my home care instructions and made sure I was comfortable before discharge. I was comfortable all during the over 1-hour drive home. I slept well that first night and every night. My pain was well controlled with my medication. Dr. Dolphin and his team worked well together. They are very professional and caring. Constantly reassuring me and made sure I had everything I needed. I would not hesitate to use his services again and can’t say enough good about Dr. Dolphin and his team. Thank you, Dr. Dolphin and team, for a job well done.”
