Great doc, very caring and detailed. I can't recommend him enough! I've suffered for years and he's really gotten to the bottom of my neck problem.

Dr Dawson is so careful, through and concerned, with your particular issues. I can't say enough about how thankful I am that I found him. I have neck issues and suffered for 20 years! He was not willing to just give me shots and pills to mask symptoms, but sent me for an MRI, called me at home at night to discuss his concerns and sent me for surgery. I was in serious trouble and didn't know it was more than just chronic pain! He's the best! Go get him to help you like he has me and two friends!

The only thing I did not like was reading the statements that was made about my visit. There were things said that was not discussed with me at all that had been written saying it was discussed with me on the day of my visit. Why would a Doctor and PA write that they went over certain things and in fact they did not even discuss it with you. This has happened twice.
