Living in the mountains in Utah – or anywhere else in the country that provides outdoor recreation and adventure – is a blessing.

I was very impressed with their performance and professional attitude. I would not hesitate to recommend these people to anyone. I had bone on bone in my ankle , I feel so much better I could do cartwheels. Even if you do not have bone on bone, do not hesitate if you have problems with your feet. It is ok to call me with any questions.

Dr. Dickerson is fantastic!! I had been suffering with bunion and curly toe pain on both feet. He really listened to me and we came up with a new procedure to solve my feet problems. I was back to enjoying activities pain free very quickly. I am so happy to have found him!

We were able to see Dr. Dickerson this afternoon for my daughter's painfully persistent ingrown toenail. As patients who were new to the clinic, we were thrilled with the service provided! Everyone we interacted with, from the receptionists, the nurse, the medical assistant, and Dr. Dickerson himself were absolutely professional, kind, efficient, attentive, and very helpful! Dr. Dickerson made my daughter feel comfortable, he engaged her in sincere and jovial conversation, he explained every step including necessary follow-up recommendations and, obviously, took care of the issue. Excellent medical care! Thank you Heiden Ortho!
