Patient Comments (7)
Denver, CO |
Dr. Dawson is insightful and compassionate, and provides excellent patient care. She has helped me through many health challenges, and is always up to date on research and is happy to refer to a specialist when needed. She is available outside office hours and has called at home with results. I have always felt confident in her diagnostic skills and thoroughness in consultation. As a health care professional, I am selective in whom I see. Dr. Dawson is a true gem.

I have been with Dr. Dawson about 11 years she is a top notch practioner. Always up to date on medical issues and very personable. I had some hand issues and Dr. Dawson diagnosed me with rheumatoid arthritis and referred me to a great specialist immediately. I highly recommend her.

I have gone to Dr. Dawson twice for a yearly physical. She is prompt for the appointment time. She spent time with me, she was not rushed or hurried. She asked questions and listened to me. She was very through and I would highly recommend her.

Dr. Dawson has been my doctor for many years. She is the best doctor I have ever been to. She listens to my needs and responds appropriately. She has wonderful bedside manner. I know I am getting the best care possible from Dr. Dawson. When she has referred me to specialists they are always very good doctors that have taken very good care of me. I would think of seeing anyone besides Dr. Dawson as my primary care physician.

Dr. Dawson is a brilliant physician who understands the complexities of medicine. She treats each patient as an individual and personalizes their health care. I feel so content knowing she manages my health through preventative care and careful diagnosis.
