Review of Dr. Dawson

- in Yorktown, VA |

My pain started 41 years ago with a broken back from a helicopter crash and in the last 7 years I have diabetic neuropathy. I'm a carry-over patient from Dr Costello. Dr Dawson listened to what was wrong with me and he burned the nerves on both sides, changed my medication. He did two of three electro stimulation acupuncture treatments and my pain was 25% of what it was when my insurance stopped my treatment. Now I'm in worse shape now not because of Dr Dawson but politics.

Review of Dr. Dawson

-

Being elderly and with a long history of back pain, I find this MD to be a little patronizing and will be switching doctors as soon as I can find one that is better. I do not find that he is interested in listening--but it could just be a personality clash.

Dr. Dawson is both knowledgeable and energetic. He listened with care and patience to all of my concerns, addressing each one individually. He he properly diagnosed the issue and developed a recovery plan. The procedure I needed was painless and effective; it solved my problem without the need for medication. I am now virtually pain-free and healed. The staff are pleasant, motivated and proficient. I highly recommend Dr. Dawson to anyone who is experiencing pain.

Review of Dr. Dawson

-Hampton, VA |

Dr. Dawson is very condescending and arrogant man. He takes offense if you question anything about your treatment plan and then becomes very short with you. I don't take controlled substances but was treated as if I did . He took over this practice from an amazing doctor and got rid of the wonderful staff that had been with the previous doctor. He can't seem to keep staff he hires. Word of advice you can find a more caring and compassionate doctor then this one!!

Review of Dr. Dawson

-St Albans, HRT |

"Dr Dawson does not accept new patients whose sole desire is to have their opioid refilled." Ok Dr. but you have to understand that you are not dealing with athletes who just happen to have an injury or even arthritis. Those people are used to working out their pain for the most part. Most of us are not pill seeking junkies. We are every day people with ailments whos lives are greatly disturbed due to debilitating pain that also hinder our work performance & daily activities. Very distressing!

Dr. Dawson is amazing. His vast knowledge in the latest procedures and care and concern for his patients is unmatched. He spends time explaining everything to you and wants to get the best result without simply putting a bandaid on the problem. I highly recommend this physician to anyone who has chronic pain.
