My husband & I have been patients of Dr.Dicke for well over 20 yrs. He is an excellent physician, never rushes you & takes the time needed to provide excellent care. His staff, most of whom remained with his practice when he moved to Pa., are all very competent & friendly. Definitely, a plus for residents of Hanover.

There truly is no better Doctor than Dr. Dicke! He is so patient, very detailed with his care, listens to every concern and provides answers or looks it up right there, and takes his time. My husband and I both see him and wouldn’t switch for anything. We drive almost an hour and a half to see him and will continue.

Dr.Dicke listened to my concerns, took his time and suggested medication change, very happy he has decided to practice in Hanover PA, will recommend him to anyone I know with thyroid trouble. One staff member was a bit on the rude side.

Dr. Dicke has given me amazing care for my thyroid disease and related health issues. He is open-minded re various treatment options and never turns down a reasonable request. I learn something new at every appointment and Dr. Dicke spends as much time as I need answering questions. Great, knowledgeable doctor and a really knowledgeable and caring person.
