My experience with Dr. Dickerson was excellent. He took the time to explain the process of my surgery. After my surgery he didn't leave me hanging. I saw him every two weeks (without co-pay) until I had healed enough to be released from his care. He always had a smile and was happy to see his "favorite patient". I'm sure he said that to all of his patients. I recommended him to my daughter. She really likes him also.

Prior to seeing Dr. Dickerson I had been to several doctors. He pretty much was my last hope. He operated on my Achilles heel and it turned out wonderful. He is so kind and interested in everything. He knows his "stuff". I honestly thought I would have to live with the pain the rest of my life. He completely shot that down. I would recommend him to anyone who has feet problems. He is awesome!!!
