    My only complaint is his very unfriendly, rude receptionist. She took it upon herself to dictate what I did and did not need with my pain management. She would refuse to relay messages to Dr. Hicks, I would end up speaking with him and he had never been told I called. He is an amazing doctor, unfortunetly I left his practice due to his receptionist and not him.

    I really liked how quick he was to provide service. I barely had any time at all to sit in the waiting room!
