in Tracy, CA |
I would highly recommend Dr. Dickinson. He is a very brilliant surgeon. I was diagnosed late last year with a cerebral AVM and was informed I would need a craniotomy. He got me through the craniotomy in 02/2016 and im already back to work 100%. He was honest and supportive which was helpful through the tough surgeries. Amazing Neurosurgeon!
