    The patient -- in a fit of anger -- thrust his hand through a sliding glass door. It's correct as is, but a space before and after each dash usually sets it off better, makes each dash look like a dash instead of a double-hyphen!

    The twins were a lot alike; they both ate too much. OK

    On May 30, he suffered a stroke, although he did not realize it; thankfully, he finally saw a doctor on June 2, or else he probably would have had another stroke. No comma needed before "although" since it's introducing a dependent clause.
