Dr,Dale King is the BEST physician my daughter has, hands down. she has a team of 10+ specialists and Dr. King is a Godsend. He ALWAYS has a smile & he really listens. He genuinely cares about my daughter & takes time to address her anxieties and questions. She has high functioning autism with a host of serious medical issues and there is no doctor that has ever treated her in her 10 years, better than Dr. King. He is always, always genuinely concerned & caring & ready to help and listen. He takes the parent (me) seriously, as well as having established a very solid relationship with my child. He is one of a kind.
Dr. King is very trusted by our family. Here's courteous and compassionate, listening to all our concerns. He provides straightforward answers and I appreciate all the advice and counsel he provides.
Dr. King is an excellent doctor. very friendly, and very concerned for my sons health. They got us in as soon as possible to the Erie office and he was most helpful getting my son the testing that needed to be done right away. Thank you Dr. King!
We absolutely love Dr. King. He is the best and most helpful doctor we have had at Children's with his EE problems. He was the only one willing to help us figure out the root of the cause instead of covering it up with steroids and medications!!
Dr. King is wonderful. My daughter has been having some problems as well and he also addresses these concerns and was able to get her scheduled quickly to get her taken care of as well. He always takes his time and never feel rushed. We never feel like a number or someone he's never seen before. He is very personable and truly cares.
very pleased with the Dr. King and the nurse we had yesterday was expectional with my daughter.
We absolutely Dr. King. In our opinion he is the best GI doctor that CHP has!
Dr. Dale E. King is a phenomenal physician, he has great active listening skills, and he is always making families feel a part of the team. He has made a tremendous difference in my son's life by introducing us to servicing services (feeding therapies,etc) that I would not have otherwise known about.
We love Dr King! he is always willing to listen to our concerns and give us the best possible treatment plan as he can.

Dr. King is amazing!!!
Always a pleasure to see Dr. King. He is very personable and friendly. My daughter really likes him, they always share a laugh or two. I am very confident that my daughter is getting the best care possible from Dr. King. My only complaint is that it takes a very long time to get an appointment.

Dr King is by far my favorite doctor that my children see!
the doctor was running 55 minutes late this is unacceptable. had I not driven an hour I would of left.
We did not have any complaints
Very prompt and caring. Easy to talk to and answered my questions.
Dr. King is simply the best. His bedside manner is warm and caring and he is extremely knowlegable . He puts our son at ease and even when he's delivering unwanted (by our son) health info. He puts it in ways that doesn't alienate our son as other docs have.
all ways is a great time there when I am there about my son very friendly and kind staff
Dr. King is wonderful with children. He is very knowledgeable, companionate and thorough. Very pleased, he listens and speaks in clear language.
Amazing staff and I would send anyone there
Our daughter is listed for transplant and this is first time we saw Dr. King. we were extremely impressed with him and are confident in his knowledge and care for our daughter. Our only complaint from our visit was that the greeting staff at the general desk (on 3rd floor right when exit elevators and do general check in) were not friendly or helpful at all. Bad first impression.
my husband and I would absolutely recommend Dr King to anyone who may be in need of his expertise. He took time to listen to and set a plan of action in motion regarding our sons care.
We are lucky to have Dr. Dale King as our child's physician. He is kind and caring toward her and always has current information to share with regarding her illness.
We Love Dr. King. He is so easy to understand and makes us feel like he has the time to talk about the issues at hand and not rush us out the door. He is very caring and compassionate about his work and We greatly appreciate it.
Dr. King is very thorough and very focused on the patient. He tries very hard to investigate and figure out what the problem is and what he can do to help the patient get better. He also has an excellent bedside manner. I feel confident that if anybody can help our son, he can. And we appreciate the fact that if he doesn't know something, he will refer you to someone who does or he will do his best to find out.
Dr. King always addresses all of our concerns.
I was extremely pleased to be seen by Dr. King. He was amazing. My daughter has had some on going issues and previously no diagnosis was able to be confirmed and we were just told there was nothing more they could do for her but he gave us hope, and also gave us a back up plan if this doesn't work. He listened to everything we had to say, didn't rush us, and was very thorough at explaining everything. I am so beyond thankful for seeing him.
This was our first visit with Dr. King and he spent the time to truly listen to our concerns and explain his recommendations in a way we could understand.
