Ratings for Dr. A. Lee Dellon
He's mean, charges too much; doesn't take insurance, and doesn't cure you 100% for pne.
Dr. Dellon has a HORRIBLE bedside manner and he's dishonest with his pricing. I have suffered from chronic nerve pain in my right heel for 25 long yrs. I travelled from Atlanta to meet Dr. Dellon. He walked into the room, shook my hand and had the audacity to say to me,"so why haven't you killed yourself yet?" I was shocked, stunned and horrified and politely told him because I have 2 amazing boys that I love and I would never do that to them! I was so upset I had to call his wife and assistant Luanne Greer into the room to console me. She told me to ignore him, he has a very bad bedside manner and he usually tells jokes to patients to break the ice. Living with chronic pain and depression go hand in hand and that was the most horrific thing he could have said to me! What if I left his office and killed myself? He should NEVER be alone with patients in a room not knowing what inappropriate, hurtful words could come flying out of his mouth. I have reported him to the medical board. In his office he quoted me $10-12k for my surgery. He had all my prior medical records and knew exactly what my case entailed. I got home and he emailed me a quote for $35k!! I was stunned! This did not include surgical fees or anasthesia. When I asked why the price tripped, I was given some nonsense about the complexity of my case?? For some reason he thought I was made of money and could just write him a check on the spot for whatever he quoted me? BIG RED FLAG!! His wife Luanne was trying to push me to have surgery the following week. Expecting me to come out of pocket almost 50k!! Beware that you have to pay out of pocket for surgery with this man, then fight like hell to get reimbursed by insurance. This is not an easy process. This is the first time I have ever written a review and I hope my horrific experience with Dr. Dellon prevents someone else from going through the mental suffering and heartache I went through. I was inconsolable for a week after returning home. He may be a brilliant doctor but his bedside manner cancels out all the good. Please be careful with this man.
Dr.Dellon is the best nerve surgeon out there. I've had 2 complicated surgeries from him in the past year and my pain is gone. Dr Dellon is caring and his knowledge and expertise is amazing. I would not of trusted any other doctor. Dr Dellon knows his stuff.
I was told by several doctors in the Houston Medical Center that I would never walk again. They told me to buy a wheel chair several times. I struggled and eventually walked but I was in terrible pain. Dr. Dellon not only relieved the pain but I became a runner again!! Running at Memorial Park in Houston, 3 miles several times per week!
My daughter had been experiencing lower back and leg pain for a couple of years. I was losing all faith in doctors and hospitals when I was referred to Dr. Dellon by a co-worker whose family member received proper diagnosis and successful treatment under Dr. Dellon. I contacted Dr. Dellon who responded to me promptly. After a preliminary examination, the prescribed treatment was successful. Also, Luiann Dellon was extremely helpful in the assisting me with the insurance forms.
When my parents and I finally decided to schedule an appointment with Dr.Dellon I had been through a year and a half of chronic pain in my head, neck, and back. After countless medications and treatments, I met with Dr.Dellon and within that first appointment he was able to explain a diagnosis that actually aligned with my symptoms. He described to me, in a way that I could understand, that I was suffering from a injury to my Brachial Plexus. He further explained that he could fix the problem surgically and then explained the surgery step by step. A couple months later I had the surgery and now I am living pain free! Dr.Dellon is an excellent surgeon who truly cares for the well-being of his patients and I would highly recommend him.
Dr Dellon solved acute pelvic pain that I experienced for 5 years in two relatively quick procedures at an ACC center . His attention to detail ,medical knowledge and skills are top notch . he is also very caring and compassionate person and actually visited me in the hotel the day after each surgery to follow up and make sure I was recovering and following post surgery instructions . Luiann on his staff helped make things go smoothly with insurance and scheduling and was very kind and guided us through the process . I am grateful for being helped so much by Dr. Dellon .
