Dr. John M. Dalena's Ratings
I visited Dr Dalena last summer and he ran extensive tests for my chronic and severe diarrhea, including a colonoscopy, stool samples, blood work. His final report was that I am not properly digesting fats. I asked him what causes that. He replied "We don't know." He offered pills but without knowing the root cause, I was reluctant to take any more pills. I had already spent hundreds on Flagyl and Vancomycin. Symptoms continue, so I called to ask if Dr. Kelly Krueger, another doctor in Dalena's practice, could review all my test results and call me to talk about whether she has any ideas for what might be causing this. The office told me that she will not call me. I would have to come in for another office visit - of course further running up my bill. I can't see why she can't just call me to suggest other ideas for what might be causing my symptoms, when she has so many test results available in that office. No follow up call ever came from any doctor in the practice, and Dalena was perfectly satisfied to simply leave the final diagnosis as "we don't know".
Thank you Dr Dalena for helping me with my Ulcerative Colitis for the last nine years! I routinely have yearly colonoscopy and check ups to remain in remission, he works with specialists at Mt. Siani and as a team, have given me great health back. It is a good feeling to have confidence living with UC and not worring about all the issues that I once had. Dr Dalena is the best, he makes me feel like someone who really cares!
Dr. Dalena and his staff run a very friendly, helpful and efficient facility at 65 Ridgedale Ave . Clearly Dr. Dalena sets a good "tone from the top". This was my second colonoscopy in the last year and my experience both times was the same.
Dr. John Dalena is a great doctor: he knew what he was doing, and the colonoscopy procedure went extremely well this past March. His superior expertise aside, I could tell that John was truly interested in helping people with medical needs. He even answered all my phone calls very promptly. I don't think he became a doctor to make money, he became a doctor to help others in need. I am very happy to get to know a great doctor like John. His unparalleled knowledge, skill and service truly amazed me. You cannot go wrong with John... He will give you the best treatment possible, period. Thanks a million, John, for a job well done! To me, you are the pride of New Jersey!
I have been to many physicians over the years, but, I have never met an extraordinary person like Dr. Dalena. He was wonderful and made me feel extremely comfortable and I am a very nervous person to begin with. He is extremely intuitive and knowledgeable. He ordered all the appropriate tests in order to get an overview of my situation. He was most generous with his time on the day of my colonoscopy, which was comforting, and he met with me shortly after the procedure to let me know his findings. Dr. Dalena is by far one of the BEST doctors I have been to in years and I will tell you that if you are looking for a great gastroenterologist; Dr. Dalena is the person you want to work with and his office staff is excellent and friendly to work with.
I went in for a routine colonoscopy screening. Although he came highly recommended, I had never met Dr. Delena. I had some unusual circumstances. They were not serious, however both the staff and the doctor were extremely compassionate. I never felt that my issues were trivialized. The procedure was quick and painless.
Dr. Dalena is very warm, personable, kind. He is unusual, to be honest... very genuine and really wants to help you get better, which is so nice to see. He's also very good at what he does, a nice plus. He helped me get better after years and years of being sick. I've been feeling great for over a year thanks to him! I am extremely grateful. The office staff is friendly, responsive and helps you with basics like getting appointments, testing, refills, and is also very good at working with your insurance company on difficult challenges. I have found the office in general to be fantastic to work with! I'd recommend Dr. Dalena to anyone!
