Dr. Dodson performed ankle surgery on my daughter over Spring Break. We couldn't have asked for a better outcome!! He was very knowledgeable with an excellent bedside manner! He prepared us in what to expect and the post op recovery, which went better than expected. He was very meticulous and detailed in all that he did for her! I highly recommend him for anyone needing orthopedic surgery. He is an excellent surgeon!! She has fully recovered with a minimum scar! Thankful for him!!
