What People Say About Dr. John Dawson, MD
RecentMost Helpful
Reply
Out of the 20 or so Doctors/Surgeons/Specialists I dealt with regarding a traumatic injury I received to my right leg, resulting in a transfemoral amputation of same, Dr. Dawson was the most honest, competent and skillful Dr in the bunch. I was assured I would walk again on that same leg, either reconstructed or provided with an artificial knee replacement, yet that was never to be, due to disruption of blood flow to the shattered bone remaining in my femur and ankle bones. Dr. Dawson honestly/truthfully told me what my potential outcomes may be & chances of success were using bone grafts from my hip, how long the potential recovery would take, and the likelihood of of success, considering the existing damage, would be, & gave me brutally honest opinions, allowing me to make a choice regarding my surgical options. I can't express how grateful I was to know the honest truth of my condition, and make an adult decision about how to proceed. My experience w/ him goes beyond mere words...

Dr. Dawson has provided excellent care since I broke 4 bones in my mid-foot and dislocated 3 more bones in April. He has gone beyond the call of duty by answering and replying to my emails when a concern arose. Thank you, Dr. Dawson for everything !!!

I was very fortunate to have been referred to Dr Dawson after a traumatic elbow injury. He saw me quickly and got me into surgery at the earliest medically appropriate time. He was a kind, genuinely nice guy when he csred for me. My personal orthopedic surgeon validates the skillful repair he did on my elbow.
