Dr. Winegar is great to work with. He is positive and direct. He takes time to answer all of my questions. He is easy to communicate with. I know he is busy but I never feel rushed. He is great to get back to me quickly through Abby if I email a question through her. My experience is very positive.

A podiatrist recommended surgery for a bunion and hammertoe, which had gotten worse. I did some research, got several opinions and checked patient reviews. Dr. Jason Dickerson was recommended by a friend and I went to see him. He explained my options, what he would do and what I should expect, if I decided on surgery. On Feb 24th he performed my surgery. I walked with a walker boot immediately following my surgery. He inserted a pain infusion catheter in the area of my surgery and I received syringes with medication for pain to use as needed. He gave me a prescription for pain meds. I did not use all of the syringes and removed the catheter as directed. I have not taken any prescribed pain meds. I used a cold therapy machine everyday. I have not had any pain and only minor swelling. I followed his instructions for a successful recovery. Four weeks after surgery I am walking in shoes. Dr. Dickerson, Lindsey (PA) and his entire staff have been on time as scheduled for all my appointments. Thank you for your professional services before, during and after my surgery. I highly recommend Dr. Dickerson.

Dr. Dickerson at Heiden Orthopedics is a true miracle worker. I had been told by several other podiatrists that the surgery I needed would have taken three months to recover form, and being a teacher that would not work. It only took me about six weeks to recover and be back in a regular shoe. The staff is great and they are very good to work with if you have questions or if a problem arises. I will only go to Heiden Orthopedics for my future orthopedic care.

I went to Dr Jason Dickerson with an ankle that I had sprained for over 50 years. He removed a bone fragment, inflamed tissue and tighten the joint with a ligament type material pinned to bones. The joint is tight now and I can walk pain free. He fixed the problem when others doctors couldn't. He is a pleasant and likable too. Dr Jason Dickerson gets a 5 star rating from me, Jim Iverson

Dr. Winegar has been awesome. I've seen a number of highly recommended orthopedic doctors for my damaged knees over the past 7-8 years. Dr. Winegar is the only one to actually do something AND has a plan for next steps. I have torn ligaments, meniscus, cartilage and arthritis from years of abuse. I'm so thankful that I got a referral to Heiden (Orthopedics) and looking forward to a long, successful relationship with them.
