Dr. Dickerson changed my life after doing 2 total knee replacements. He explained everything thoroughly. I'm grateful every day to be living pain free!!!
in Manahawkin |
Definitely not impressed. Dr is rude and ignorant and dosent help to offer any kind of solution. Waited over an hour for my appointment just to be shunned. Definitely going to find another orthopedic!
in Brick, NJ |
Dr. Dickerson is WONDERFUL! I agree with previous comment, Shawn is an asset to this practice. Dr. Dickerson & Shawn, "The Perfect Team". They work wonderful together to care for their patients. After 2 Carpel Tunnel Surgeries, 1 knee surgery and 2 Rotator Cuff surgeries, I wouldn't have it any other way. Thank you for all the great work you have done. LOL....looking forward to my other knee surgery. Makin' me feel brand new!

SUPERB! Dropped what he was doing personally to meet us at the hospital after my daughter {Anamika} broker atm. She was in severe pain and was scared. He calmed her, treated her and followed up. You can tell he loves to practice his specialty! Jeffrey S. Glaser, Ph.D.

Dr. Dickerson has been a pleasure being around. He is thorough , honest and up front. Dr D does not sugar coat anything . Great surgeon who has answered all my questions and concerns. Some Drs in my past experiences treated me like a number not a person. Dr D. Is the total opposite
Bradley Beach, NJ |
Impatient, brusque, and unabashedly indifferent to patient's concerns
