I have been a patient of Dr. Hicks for over 30 years. He is a very caring person which makes him have a great doctor feature that all do not have. He was right on top of my situation, same day appointment to see an ENT, because he suspected something very wrong. That was the day I found out I had the big C, from the ENT. Dr. Hick's has everything you need under one roof which makes it convenient. Love the staff and all the ARNP's and PA's. Thank you, WCFMC!

01 June 2017: First appointment for Yrly Physical. Changed my doctor from Diagnostic Clinic Med Grp down the road to Dr. Hicks. Very good experience so far. Dr. Hicks has very good interpersonal skills, and seems keen on helping his patients. The office staff and receptionist were skilled and expedient.

Very professional and a good listener. Took the time to address my concerns and yet asked a lot of questions. Be prepared though to fill out a lot of paperwork. I would highly recommend anyone with complex issues to go see him.

Very unprofessional, says one thing then does another. Oh and if you go there and expect to hear results for labs you had done don't plan on it ! He is in and out of the exam room doesn't spend time to figure out what is going on.

He relieved a pain, that a series of many Dr's have not even been able to touch for 8 years. This man provided relief, with one dr visit, and one injection. Enough said!
