Dr. Dillingham and her staff are among the best medical offices I have been to. The staff is knowledgeable, friendly, and cohesive, and Dr. Dillingham is knowledgeable and caring - exactly what one would seek in a physician.

Dr. Dillingham went over everything that was discussed with the medical assistant beforehand and went over the specifics of what would happened before, during and after surgery. The visit was quick but she answered all of the questions I had that I didn't even have to ask. That's how thorough she was.

Great experience overall. I realized during this post-op visit initial expectations could have been a little better managed, though I'm still very happy with the results.

There was some confusion regarding the level of anesthesia for the planned surgical procedure. As the patient, I had to get clarification. This should not have been required of the patient.

Dr. Dillingham gave me the choice of draining the fluid from my arm. She told me to keep putting cold compresses on the area and come back in a week if I am still concerned. She also explained to me what will happen if she keeps draining the fluid instead of the body absorbing it
