I've had continual knee pain for over 10 years. I set up a meeting with Dr. Dickey after seeing the CBS evening news on 3 dimensional knee replacements. The fact that the healing time was less, after the replacement, really interested me. When we met he showed me a 3-D knee - and pointed out that it is not a symmetrical part of the body. He suggested doing a shot in the knee - since it would be the logical next step for me. I had him shoot me, and my knee feels better then it has in years.

Dr. Dickey went above and beyond in getting me treated for a serious fibula rod insertion, I had a great outcome and loved his bedside manner

I would not recommend Dr. Dickey, He did a complete knee replacement on me. I had in home nurses came to my home. After a few weeks my nurse immediately had me go see my primary care to look at it. I was diagnosed with an infection in the incision, my doctor called down to Dr. Dickey's office and explained what was going on, He never called her back. She started me on a antibiotics immediately. Dr. Dickey finally saw me a week later, and tried to say I never even had infection. Which was Bull !!
We are sorry to hear this and value your feedback. Please call our practice manager, Kara, at 303-928-8811 so we can learn more.
Was scheduled for surgery and received a call for a reschedule. Was then called back a week before surgery and was told he was no longer with the practice. I as an adult have to take care of my responsibilities in my workplace,if this doctor is to hold responsibility then he should have done the scheduled surgeries and no longer taken new patients. Instead there are now a number of patients that have their life on hold and no responsibility toward this man
