Dr. Dickerson was very knowledgeable about the break I had in my foot and recommended putting a screw in to stabilize it. He took the time to explain what to expect. I was concerned about an upcoming vacation and not being able to walk. With the surgery complete and healing time I was able to go on my trip and walk with my regular shoe. Yes, I have extreme confidence in him and would highly recommend him to others. He is extremely friendly and gives you the time you need. Thanks, Dr. Dickerson!Susan in Salt Lake City, UT
Dr. Dickerson has been great. He explained everything about the procedure in detail, and the operation went smoothly. Every question I had was clearly answered. During recovery, I used the pain pump Dr. Dickerson installed, and it eased the recovery by keeping me pain free. The refrigeration unit he prescribed instead of an ice pack made it extremely easy to apply cold to my foot. Overall, I highly recommend Dr. Dickerson.Chris Sakellariou
I was impressed when I first went in to see Dr. Dickerson. I had broken my fibula on Christmas day, and even with the usual backlog after a holiday weekend, he was able to work me right after I called in.
When I went for my first appointment, I was surprised that there was no typical "wait time" that I have become accustomed to when visiting a doctor's office. I was seen within about 5 minutes of entering the office. Dr. Dickerson looked at my x-ray's from the ER and showed me why he recommended surgery to bring the bones back together and put in a plate to hold them there.
Not only was he able to see me quickly but he was able to have me into surgery later that afternoon.
Not only did he do a great job of putting things back together, but the follow-up visits have also been prompt - the staff has been great, and I am grateful that my leg has healed with no complications.
Thank you, Dr. Dickerson

Dr. Dickerson was AWESOME. My daughter fractured her distal fibula (ankle) in 3 places. It was a complicated fixation. He had her placed immediately NPO and we returned for surgery that same evening. She had a plate and 8 screws placed. She has healed wonderfully since her initial surgery and just went in for hardware removal of 1 screw placed for stabilization today. She had absolutely minimal pain post-operative and did very well on a few days of Tylenol alternating with Ibuprofen. He never made us feel rushed at any of our appointments and answered all our questions. He was an expert and quite knowledgeable! I work at a very well known pediatric orthopedic facility as a hospitalist and had consulted with the orthopedic surgeons I worked with about my daughter's fracture - Dr. Dickerson's medical expertise and recommendations correlated with theirs. He was awesome. I would highly recommend him.Susana Kinikini
