I won't go to another ophthalmology. Dr. Dixon and his partner Dr. Kane are the best. I would sent any one to them.

Dr Dickson is an excellent doctor. If there was another word above excellent I would write that. They don't come any smarter or caring than Dr. Dickson. My husband and I are VERY lucky to have found him and have his expertise taking care of us over the years.
