Dr Dawson has been my family Dr for 9 years and I would recommend him to anyone with medical issues that fall under his expertise. Dr Dawson has an excellent dr/patient repoir. His bedside manner is like non other that I've seen... The staff there at his office treats you like they have known you forever or like you are family. Like I said I totally recommend Dr Dawson for any of your medical needs.

Dr. Dawson maybe feel comfortable to discuss the issues that I was having. He gave me options and referred me to a specialist if needed.

Dr. Dawson takes extra care in treating my 87 year old mother and is a good listener and gives attention to any concerns you may have.

He really pays attention to the problem and tries to find you the cheapest and most efficient way to handle the problem and get you back to full strength.

I have seen Dr. D for over 12 years, through 3 practices, I think he's great. He listens to you instead of talking at you with a preconceived notion of what's wrong before hand. I have recommended him to many friends and coworkers. Now he has so many patients I have to wait to get in. ;)
