Thomas Dimmig, MD is a precise and excellent surgeon. I have been a patient at Triangle Orthopedic/Emerge Ortho since 2001. Dr. Dimmig has operated on me for neck reconstruction, knee arthroscopic and replacement surgery, and back surgery. I trust him completely. I would not go to anyone or to any place else!

Dr. Dimmig is the best and is very personable. I had been dealing with back pain for years and it had been hurting badly prior to my visit. He really wanted to get to the source of my back pain and not just medicate it. He fought with my insurance company in order to get a much needed MRI, which showed what was causing my back pain. I received a steroid shot and my back pain slowly eased up from an 8 to a 1. I'm so thankful to Dr. Dimmig and would definitely recommend him to anyone dealing with back pain.
