Dr.Dixon is a very arrogant cocky doctor. He has zero compassion for his patients. I know of 2 other patients that said the same thing and left his practice. I was stupid enough to put up with him for 2 years. I wouldn't recommend him to my enemies.

I had my first appointment with Dr. Dixon in Jan. 2017. I had opted to see Dr. Dixon because of many positive reviews posted online. I am so thankful I did! Dr. Dixon greeted me warmly, treated me with respect, we had an in-depth conversation regarding my medical condition and my pain medication history. I also have to say the support staff is amazing, they really make you feel welcome and at ease, very friendly and very efficient. I feel very lucky to have found Dr. Dixon!

Tinley Park, IL – Nov 08, 2016
Recently my previous pain management doctor passed away and I was having trouble finding a new pain doctor. Dr. Dixon and his staff greeted me warmly into their clinic. With many pain doctors they are afraid to treat chronic pain. Dr. Dixon reviewed my surgical history(I've had 8 hip replacements) as well as my progress reports from my previous doctor and jumped right in to treat my chronic pain. Dr. Dixon and my previous doctor have truely given me my quality of life back. Thank you!
