What People Say About Dr. Brian Dickinson, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I can’t begin to explain what Dr Dickinson has done for me both physically and mentally. After contracting MRSA from a hospital in Arizona, Dr Dickinson was called in to perform surgery and remove my implants I had following cancer surgery. Needless to say, I’m fortunate to be here. Dr Dickinson saved my life. Of course I was facing reconstructive surgery and I wouldn’t trust my life with anyone but Dr Dickinson. I am in Newport Beach so you expect all Drs to critic you. Dr Dickinson does nothing but lift you up. “You look great!” I can’t tell you how his positive attitude carries over to his patients. I’m progressing along and shortly I’ll have my breasts back with no implants! He performed a DIEP Flap and it’s a relief not to have implants. How he created a breast for me from my abdomen tissue, I’ll never know. He’s a genius with the personality of a best friend! His bedside manner is something you must experience for yourself and his workmanship is precise!

I had a bicycle accident with broken cheekbone and needed a surgery urgently. I interviewed 4 doctors to weight the options. Dr Dickinson was booked up and had no opening but came on his day off for the consultation as he recognized the urgency of my situation. He worked me In the next day at 8pm as his last. His approach was least invasive compared to other doctors. He did an amazing job! There is no trace of my injury except a small scar on the hair line. He is an amazing doctor/human being.

Dr. Dickinson is truly impressive. His bedside manner is impeccable, and every time I had a concern or question he got right back to me. I had developed an infection from a previous implant removal and breast lift with a different surgeon. Dr. Dickinson saw me repeatedly until the infection cleared, and I then underwent scar revision with him for scars I developed around the areoles and breast creases from the infection. He did a fine job revising my scars and literally saved my chest!
