After a broken ankle, Dr. Gibbs saw me and went over the MRI with me in great detail explaining that my tendons were intact and bone was healing. I was relieved I wouldn't need surgery. I was able to get back to running.

Four months ago I began to experience some very debilitating pain in my left foot. Walking was most difficult. On four separate occasions I met with two of my physicians all while taking advantage of both cortisone injections as well as x-rays. Nothing would help. Fortunately, I was referred to Heiden Orthopedics where I had the opportunity to meet Dr. Jason Dickerson. Upon my initial visit, he quickly assessed my situation which he later confirmed by virtue of an MRI. The past four weeks have found me undergoing both treatment procedures and healing. As of this morning, my temporary walking boot has been removed, and I'm back to a fairly normal situation. Sad to say it took me 3 months of agony before I met Dr. Dickerson. I highly recommend their services. I found them to be extremely professional and supportive.

I have been a patient of three doctors: Karen Heiden, Dickerson, and Winegar. All were excellent providers.
