If Dr. Dickensheets were the only ID in all of the US, I'd travel outside of the country to see a different ID. I waited one hour after my appointment time (I got there 30 minutes early like instructed, adding insult to injury), only for him to come in and be rude and short with me. He charged me $355 for the 15 minutes he spent with me, which most of the time was spent with me having to repeat myself because he did not listen to me. I feel robbed and he is a disgrace to the medical community.

He's rude and overbearing and had the bedside manor if a table leg. God forbid you ask a question, he does not like to be challenged. He may be good at what he does, but after the experience we've had with him, we don't plan on finding out. When I asked what kind of infection my mother had his response was, "it's a big long word". Really ??!! That doesn't inspire trust there doc....

His bedside manner is terrible! I hope no one ever treats his mom the way he treated mine who was a cancer patient.
