Dr. Dees took my case when my original BS behaved VERY unprofessionally. I had a treatment plan in mind, and Dr. Dees worked 100% with me to be sure he addressed what was significant for me. He took time to address anything I was worried about and when there was a little glitch in healing, he was compassionate and caring during the whole process and never once made me feel like I my POV and questions were beneath him or unimportant. I would recommend him to anyone! I was VERY impressed.
Thanks for sharing such positive feedback about Dr. Dees. We feel lucky to have him on our team and will pass on your kind words to him.

If I had to choose between Dr. Dees and Dr. Pepper, I'd choose the can of soda for any treatment over this guy. He was inconsiderate and didn't even care to hear how I was feeling. I would never recommend him to my family or friends! He definitely needs a reality check that he's not really a great person. I, myself, am a medical professional and have never met a more condescending person.
