When a patient is not getting better after 7 months of continuous UTI/VRE related infections, you don't NOT recommend follow-up visits and DO need to return our phone calls re: meds and scheduling office visit. That you don't dare minimize the effects of MRSA and talk down to us, when my mother, brother (and nearly myself) almost DIED from hospital-acquired MRSA. MAJOR ego and uncaring attitude.

Waited 1 full week for a returned phone call to get a hospital follow-up appt, Finally they told me they would rather Mom see another Infectious Disease doctor. This egotistical jerk needs to get over himself & start CARING for his patients, especially ones like my Mom who needed follow-up care for a deadly infectious disease. That when we call to say my Mom can't afford $360 (after insurance) for your prescribed meds, can you prescribe something else, that someone needs to return our call.

When my own my surgeon was hesitant to readmit me to the hospital after developing an infection, Dr. Dickensheets saw me that same Friday afternoon. After an exam of the wound, Dr. Dickensheets recommended that I go straight to the hospital. His speedy action and accurate analysis of my condition saved me from weeks of misery. While some on this forum may not think he has much of a bedside manner, he is knowledgeable, precise, direct, and never dodged a question! My kind of doc!! 5 stars!!!

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.

Unsympathetic, uncaring

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.
