Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

No better man for the task
Dr. Dickens is the most compassionate, intelligent, and caring doctor our unfortunate circumstance has given my wife and I the pleasure of working with. He will be there right along side you as you consider some of the most difficult decisions you will ever need to deal with. He gives his honest opinion. He will not shrink away from questions you may be afraid to ask him but ask because you have no other resource. He is thoughtful. He feels like family. He always goes above and beyond the call of duty and you know he will fight for you, your child, or your family. I can’t even begin to think of a way to repay him for everything he has done for my family. It is so much more than medicine.
