      Dr. Dickinson is knowledgable, personable and gifted. He has a great heart. He has gone on many medical missions and does as much as he can for the patient. His will to find a solution is what makes him so special. He personally saved my friends life. His dedication as a physician is exemplary. His office is very nicely decorated. Staff is very friendly and efficient. His Nurse Mary is kind and informative. Breanna is fast and ALWAYS returns messages (not something you see in offices these days)

      Dr. Dickinson has operated on me 3 times--twice in the hospital and one minor procedure in his office. All procedures turned out very well. I think he is skilled, considerate, and very attentive to details, especially in his follow-up care. I have recommended him to friends. Mary and Breanna, his office staff, have also shown me courtesy and consideration in answering my questions and scheduling appointments for me.

      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.
