      Doctor Dawson is truly one of the finest doctors I have ever encountered - I am very selective and I trust him implicitly. He is intelligent, a gifted surgeon, fantastic bedside manner, kind, friendly, courteous, a good man, excellent diagnostician, spends a lot of time with his patients, truly cares about his patients, listens to what his patients have to say, very thorough explanations, etc., etc., etc. - I can't say enough good things about him - and, there are definitely no negatives.
      in New York, NY |
      Only saw him for surgery, but was very intelligent, talkative, explained everything, put you at ease, follow up was great, and the laparoscopic appendicitis was flawless.
      in Brooklyn, NY |
      Dr. Dawson is awesome!
      in New York, NY |
      Allowing for Dr. Dawson's surgical competency as a given, I found Dr. Dawson's warmth, patience, and caring to be exceptional. Information was conveyed clearly and concisely in non-technical terms. In each of our encounters, I felt I had Dr. Dawson's complete attention and that he was genuinely concerned with making my treatment and care as positive an experience as possible.
      in New York, NY |
      Dr Dawson is a wonderful healer. More than just a surgeon, he was warm and caring in his discussion with me about my hernia. The time of surgery was made much more pleasant by his capable and reassuring presence. I had a smooth and uneventful recovery.
      in Brooklyn, NY |
      Dr.Dawson removed my gallbladder about a year ago, and I can't thank him enough! He was great before the operation, answered all my questions and concerns, and put me at ease. After the surgery I had minimal to no bruising, as he is such a great surgeon. He was great with following up with me after surgery, and a year later it's like it never happened, I feel great! I would truly recommend him to anyone reading this!
      in New York, NY |
      Perfect mix of professionalism and humanity. Dr. Dawson spent as much time as was requested to explain procedures both pre and post surgery. The whole process of repairing inguinal hernia was handled expertly. The office and the surgical establishment were run like clock work and EVERY member of the team in both locations knew their jobs and performed them with the level of care they would expect if they themselves were undergoing the procedure. I would recommend without reservation.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
