Dr. Dickerson gave my husband new options for chronic back pain. He educated us in a way no other MD has ever spent time doing. He knows his field and can explain the procedures. Best of all he really seems to love his work. I'm going to him now and have great hope for my chronic pain. He's 5 stars all the way.

Dr. David Dickerson CHANGED OUR LIVES!!! My mom has been suffering with chronic low back pain for over 8 years. No doctor has been able to help her. She had two SI fusions and still suffered miserably. After one visit with “Dave” her life is forever changed. For someone who couldn’t live a normal life, let alone practically leave the couch she’s now doing anything she wants to! He’s confident but not cocky, and very funny! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

Dr Dickerson is a top-notch doctor who also has fabulous patient communication skills! He went above and beyond to help my daughter with her chronic pain- something she has been dealing with for over 13 years! He has treated her with the upmost respect and worked hard to give her the relief she so desperately needed. Doctor Dickerson has changed my daughter's quality of life more than we had ever thought possible. He is by far the best doctor we have ever worked with and we highly recommend him.

Dr. Dickerson has worked with my wife's post mastectomy pain issues. He continued to work with her through multiple treatments always finding another arrow in the quiver until we found a treatment that truly helped with her pain. I have recommended him to others suffering from pain issues and would do so again.
