Patient Comments (10)

in Myrtle Beach area, SC |
New to the area, I needed surgery for an abdominal hernia. I was referred to Dr. Dickinson via the Patient Referral Program at the G.S. Hospital. I was very much at ease with this doctor; his professionalism, demeanor and skill is well beyond average; I would trust him anytime with any other surgery should I require it in the future. My only regret is that he left this practice as of March, 2017, so how would I find him should I need him again?

definitely get a second opinion, unnecessary surgery, not well thought of at Grand Strand several past issues with the hospital. A doctor to do operations just for money

I have been Doctor Dickinson patients for nine years 35 surgery on me to remove infection if it was not for him I would have died but thank god for him his my hero. If I have to have surgery anymore I want him right beside. I would be scared to death if he's not in the O.R beside me .he feels like my family to me.He is their to help everyone he has a heart of gold

DR. Dickinson is an excellent doctor. He is very through and accommodating. He guided me through my AAA surgery and followed up with me promptly. I had minimal pain or discomfort. And followed up with another needed surgery and angiogram. A wonderful doctor as was his associate Dr. Wunderful
Great doctor gave great explanations to any questions I had before and after my operation which by the way he was able to extract all the cancer in my colon after a 7 hr operation leaving me with very little pain, also have to give his nurse Linsley a 5 star rating making sure his patients questions were answered even after office hrs. ps funny all the negative reviews were from someone named John

Dr. Dickinson recently admitted me to hospital with problems arising from a blood clot in my right leg. As usual, he was right on it and got me feeling better quickly. I wouldn't want to trust my vascular surgical needs to anyone else! His staff is always respectful and courteous. They try to get you the answers you need. I recommend Dr. Dickinson 100%.
