Dr. Dickerson is a very good surgeon but, I have had 2 surgeries and still have problems. I am sure that eventually he will be able to fix my back problem. My biggest complaint is his staff (not Diane) and not ever being able to talk to anyone on the phone. I always have to leave a message and then sometimes never get a reply or wait over 2 days. Still, I would definitely recommend him or any other Dr. at Abay and I would especially recommend the Ks. Spinal Hospital.

Dr. Dickerson has operated on two family members and a third is considering seeing him for spinal surgery. He is an excellent surgeon. He totally leaves the followup hand holding and reassurance to his staff. You will see him at the initial visit to discuss your condition, a few minutes before and after surgery to say how things went. All subsequent patient contact is with Diana, his assistant. Main weakness - dealing with the person that determines whether you see the doctor - ditzy!.

Takes time with new patients to explain conditions but after that you won't see much of him besides before or after surgery. You will see his PA. He does take good care of you they both do. recommend!

Doctor Dickerson was very thorough and explained my procedure(s) just as thorough. Not once did I ever feel pressured into any procedure as it was all on my test that showed how serious my problems were. His ARNP Diana is just as awesome. I highly recommend Doctor Dickerson as I do not want just anyone operating on me when it comes to my spinal cord.
in Pratt, KS |
Great man and very pleasant to work with, Still need help but I can't think of another person that I would trust more.
