Dr. Nixon would not return calls, nor send lab orders and referrals on time causing delays in treatment. She now is charging $1400 a year to be seen. I can see her true values now.

They never answer the phone. Takes forever for them to call you back (if they ever do). Twice this month they have ignored urgent messages I left (one was a medication refill request, another was a request for results). They never called back, and there have been times in the past where they have completely ignored messages. Wait time is a minimum of one hour past appointment time (sometimes 2 hours). Says she's in Wednesdays all day but office always closed by noon. Infuriating and unacceptable

Took my wife there (Dr. is a fellow alumus). Waited 1.5 hours. After the third/last trip two weeks ago the referrals still have not been sent to the other physicians. We make trips to the office to deal with the incredibly rude and nasty clerk. We visit her office to deal with the incredibly incompetent clerk to get refills. I received my doctoral training from Hopkins as well--nobody but nobody ever told anybody to treat their clients/patients like dirt. Now we go to the big non profit.

They never answer the phone or return your calls. Impossible to make an appointment.

Dr. Dixon is amazing! I have lived in Reno for 60 years and she was the BEST! She spent more time with me than my previous concierge physician and I felt she really cared. She gave definitive reasons for why she approved of certain drug therapies without negating other therapies. Her nurse was also very friendly and personable. The only thing I really dislike is always getting an answering machine when I just want to leave a message or reschedule an appointment. Very inconvenient!

She used to be compassionate, which she was before being part of a 'managed practice'. Now she cuts back quality care time and no longer calls with test results etc. in a timely manner ex: still awaiting chest X-ray results from 7 days ago & lab work from 4 days ago. she has canceled appt on me twice! She works under St Mary's Med Grp. Find out for yourself how this practice works by calling for an appointment. You go thru a call car! You cannot reach office directly to schedule, cx etc.

Dr Dixson is a very thorough and compassionate doctor who takes the time to discuss all aspects of one's medical care. She's simply one of the best and brightest doctors I've ever met!
