“Dr. Dale is a great doctor. Had so much pain with my right knee could hardly walk. Right after the surgery I had no pain and had a great movement after that. The pain was completely gone. Thank God for small miracles. Went to Bethany for rehab, and the therapist there were great also. Very pleased how everything went. We should be thankful we have these great doctors here to help us in our community. They are a blessing to all of us. We are very fortunate.”
– Terry R.
“Doctor Dale cordinated by bilateral knee replacements last May 5th. The surgery was very successful and I was active golfing and walking seven weeks following the surgery. Still pain free and active.”
– John W.
“EXTREMELY COMPETENT, good at explaining in a caring business like "tough love" kind of way.... no sugar coating here! Prior to my knee replacement I was barely able to bend my knee much less kneel on it. I just finished a remodeling project that required I be on my knees every day for over two weeks, no problem! Very happy with Dr. Dale.”
– Larry K.
“I had a hip replacement in May, and I was very impressed with the whole Boot Camp experience before and after the surgery. It was very well organized and created some camaraderie with other people having similar surgery. I was also very impressed with my care from Dr. Dale. He has since injected and now done a trigger release on a trigger thumb. I was so grateful for his willingness to do it promptly so that I am more prepared to cross-country ski in January, something that he knew was very important to me now that my hip is ready. It felt like he honored me as a whole person by doing that. I was also very impressed with Mike who did several hip injections before my hip surgery. He is a very gracious, caring, and gentlemanly provider. Thanks to everyone for a positive experience. I hope I do not have to come again, but if I do, I will know that I will receive excellent care.”
– Judith F.

“Dr. Dale and staff were excellent. He is an exceptional surgeon, and a downright lovely guy while retaining a professional demeanor. I would highly recommend Heartland and DCH, to anyone. Thank you.”

“I had carpel tunnel surgery three weeks ago. All went extremely well. No swelling, infection very little pain. The surgery corrected my problem, and I'm back to regular activity. I highly recommend Dr. Dale and the DCH staff. Many Thanks.”

– Sandra R.
“Friendly, minimal wait. All questions answered.”
– Mark O.
“Dr. Dale guided me through a life changing experience from the initial left hip arthritis diagnosis to the definitive action of replacement and followed up. My expectations were exceeded. He thoroughly explained the expected future and outcomes and was right on target. I am currently seven weeks out from surgery and honestly did not expect to feel "normal" at 5-6 weeks. Thanks, Dr. Dale! Also, thanks to the great staff at Heartland Orthopedics Specialists.”
– Roger D.
“I was always greeted in a friendly way. Questions were answered in ways I could understand. Results from surgery helped.”
– Marilyn M.
“I had an excellent experience having Dr. Paul Dale as my provider. Before surgery, he explained thoroughly what to expect following my knee replacement. He took the time to answer questions, and I never felt rushed during any of our appointments, before or after surgery. He was informative and encouraging during my hospital stay, and I left the hospital feeling confident that I was well on the road to recovery. My total knee replacement is a complete success, thanks to Dr. Dale and I am so appreciative of the excellent care I received.”
– Sheila N.
“Everyone on the staff has been great and have never had any problems.”
