      Dr. Hicks literally saved my life! If it wasn't for his vast knowledge and caring I probably wouldn't be here today. Dr. Hicks knew what my problem was from the moment we discussed my symptoms. All was confirmed with tests and he made the best recommendations for me. I just can't say enough about Dr. Hicks and his staff! They are not only knowledge and professional, they truly care about their patients!!

      Why Does Experience Matter?
