I was one of many that had the opportunity to have Dr. Dixon as a Cardiologist at Austin Heart. I have been seen by him for 11 years and although I have seen others prior, none took the time to explain in detail, and in layman's terms what was going on with my heart and how WE could improve the outcome. His abilities and forethought are impeccable and professional at all times. He listens to you, asks the questions you don't think of and advises on all aspects of your care. Thank you SIR!!

Dr Dixon has been caring for my 90 year old Dad for many years. Dr. Dixon has our upmost confidence and he treats my dad with kindness and respect - carefully ensuring that Dad understand his treatment. He doesn't rush, knowing that it takes a bit longer for him to follow. We are so thankful to have been in such capable hands.

Absolutely would recommend Dr. Dixon to friends and family......just as a friend recommended him to me. Appointment process was very smooth even for first time, new patient documentation was done online, which I strongly recommend since it saves time from the get-go. Friendly, com- petent staff, comfortable waiting area, access to COFFEE maker. I had a very relaxed first interview with Dr. Dixon and I'm sure he was a solid choice to deal with my particular malady.

I was very impressed with the time Dr Dixon took to comfort, inform, and educate me on my sleep apnea condition. In spite of self educating myself on the subject matter I didn’t fully see the value on what was being prescribed for me. I highly recommend his services!

I have always had the very best health attention through Dr. Dixon.. He is always very through and when a problem arises that needs additional attention he has made his recommendations or has taken further steps in the hospital for additional treatments. I would recommend Dr. Dixon to anyone that is having heart problems.

I have been seeing Dr Dixon for three years now and have been totally satisfied with my visits. I would recommend to my family and friends Dr Dixon. Both his waiting room, reception,exam room are of high standards. Waiting time is minimal. Time waiting for the Doctor is also minimal. Once visit is over I have a total understanding of doctors diagnosis and any actions I have to follow. He is easy to talk to and listens to my issues. I have no doubt new patients would be pleased with Dr Dixon
