Patient Comments (6)

Dr. Dixon changed my daughters life! He did an excellent job on reconstruction of both her feet. I cannot day enough about this brilliant doctor. He actually knew what was wrong with her feet after going to the Bone and Joint for 10 years! Dr. Dixon was kind, compassionate, and professional.

He is does not know a lot about ankles. Please stay away from him if you have ankle or foot issues. in my small circle of acquaintances, I have found at least 4 people that have had very bad expediencies with him. Unfortunately, I found out about their bad experiences after the so-called Dr. Dixon...more

Dr. Dixon was the third doctor I saw. He listened to me, set forth a course of action, and finally I found relief for my pain.

Worst bedside manner. Just cares about cutting as a surgeon.

Very thorough. Explained EVERYTHING to me in regards to my nonunion of a previous bunion surgery. Personally called when I had further questions in regard to the surgery. Very cautious and explained the reasoning behind being cautious during the post op period. I would highly recommend him.
