I went to this doctor after discovering my doctor was not paid. After 22 years I was forced to find a new doctor. Dawson, who I never met, was more worried about appearances and avoidance than he was treating me. I will NEVER visit this man again. It's all about running up the tab and tests. He could not comprehend that not everyone can afford to go to specialist. Or run to the office constantly. I felt like cattle running through the shoot.

My family, several friends and I have been patients of Dr. Dawson (and Shannon Drachenburg, PA) for a couple of decades now. They both take great care to listen to their patients - then are warm, responsive and articulate in explaining all concerns. We all feel well cared for on every level in sickness and routine visits - and have always been closely monitored in person and via their patient portal when ill or injured. I often highly recommend Dr. Dawson, Shannon and all his incredible team.

Dr. Dawson is amazing! He is efficient, friendly, knowledgeable and thoroughly explains medical concerns and conditions. Whenever I have had questions, he has answered them and always treats my concerns as if they are important and relevant. I have great confidence in his medical ability. He and his staff have helped me tremendously through different medical issues and they seem very concerned about my well-being. I am so glad I happened to find him a decade ago. Worth the trip across town!
