I was referred to Dr. Dickey by my primary care physician in 1991 for a work-related injury that resulted in two herniated discs. I was under Dr. Dickey's care for several years on an intermittent basis and most recently had to return for two examinations of my lower back. I have always found him to be professional, caring and an all-around great guy. His secretary and office staff are courteous, friendly and always make a patient feel welcome coming in......truly a first-class experience!

Dr. Dickey will be correcting another doctors ignorance and disrespect. Dr. Dickey, in under 10 seconds of looking at my MRI, identified my condition and stated, with a quiet confidence, that he will fix me. I have been suffering with severe neck and arm pain for almost 3 months. The original doctor, who operated on me in May to remove a screw he installed in 2012 that came loose laughed at me when I told him I was still in pain. I am fully convinced Dr. Dickey will restore my quality of life.

Walked into hospital, bent over with a walker, in severe pain. Dr. Dickey performed a laminectomy. Walked out the next day, standing erect, no walker, and no pain. Dr. Dickey is superb. Yale New Haven Hospital is great. Robert Squire, Meriden, CT 1/16
