While vacationing in Lavallette my 13 year old daughter jumped in shallow water and broke her ankle! Brought her to the ER at around 6 pm on Saturday night... was treated kindly and efficiently.. they brought her back right away and did xrays and called the pediatric orthopedic Dr David Dickerson was the Dr on call... he ordered a cat scan and decided surgery would be best. Needless to say I was a mess considering I was on vacation and they are telling me my daughter is having surgery in 2 hrs when I thought it was just a sprained ankle! Anyway everyone was wonderful! The nurses,anesthesiologists, Drs, staff everyone! We had to spend the night they were so caring and compassionate with my daughter and myself included. We decided to use Dr Dickerson for the rest of her treatment and I cannot thank everyone at the hospital enough for taking such good care of my daughter ?? 5??

I called to make an appointment I was left on hold for 40 minutes. I left my phone on the call & called a second time on my daughter's phone to see if I could get through & got an attitude from the receptionist Amanda bc I called her our on the poor customer service when she was unapologetic for leaving me in hold. I finally got Office Manager Pat on the line who was also unapologetic & rude stating they were a small office. Dr doesn't have good judgement in staffing he's not fit to operate.

Dr. Dickerson, is the best Dr around. Hes excellent at what he does. He has rebuild ,just about everything on me that was torn, broke . He has compassion for us and he comes up with a solution right away. I will or won't go to anyone else but him. I have been seeing him since he was in Monmouth medical. Thank you Dr. Dickerson, with all of my heart.

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
