Franklin, NC |
I found Dr Dodd to be very concerned over my current issues. He listened and gave me time to ask questions. He was prompt in providing lab results and appropriate follow up. Refreshing to find a specialist that will listen and allow more than one question.

Very thorough. Very personable. Very patient. I feel fortunate to have found him.
in Morganton, NC |
I am in the medical profession and I was very satisfied with my appointment with Dr. Dodd. He did a thorough assessment, reviewed my lab work, ordered diagnostic testings. He really knew a lot about the endocrine system. I was very impressed! He spent a lot of time with me, collecting information and listening to my health story. He was very kind and compassionate.
in Arden, NC |
He is okay, but usually snarky and rude.
in Charlotte, NC |
My mother was a patient of Dr. Dodd. While she liked him personally, his office is yet another thing to deal with. She was notified (not at an appointment where the medication could be explained to her) but by the pharmacy that an unknown prescription ($120) had been called in to her pharmacy. Not knowing why this was ordered she called to find out. The office nurse did not return her phone calls. Against her wishes the rx was filled and sent to her. She is out that money without an explanation.
