Dr.Dickerman is so well respected in the medical community inspired confidence and trust. I never felt rushed or like himself or Ashley did not listen to my questions or concerns and they never made me feel like i was just a number. This could have been a very scary scenario but was a very pleasant experience. Dr. Dickerman cares and is very much focused on patients, making us feel calm, secure, engaged, empowered and part of the team. I would without reservation recommend him to anyone.

After waiting 1.5 hrs in exam room, I opened door and looked around due to boredom, the Dr asked what i was doing, I joking(I thought) said, Just seeing if anyone was out here, He slammed the file down on the chair and stormed off..came back in and said this isn't going to work, find another doctor.

Quickly determined all of my husband's issues, and prioritized them based upon our wishes. He is a very talented physician, and I would not hesitate to refer my mother to him, if he takes medicare patients. ; - )

Impressive experience meeting him. He lived up to the hype I had heard. I know now why my Doctor referred me to him. He's got it together!
in Argyle, TX |
Dr Dickerman saw my 96 year old mother when she was transferred to Presby Plano from another Presbyterian hospital. Although my mother was fully awake, Dr. Dickerman did not address her, but spoke to me. He was impatient from the beginning. He said, Your mother has a broken neck. She can never live alone again. She can be released today to rehab. No follow up instructions or orders were sent with her to rehab. His office never returned rehab RN calls. Pitiful.
in McKinney, TX |
He was truly a gift from God, without his skill and expertise I would not be walking today. Dr. Dicker an and his staff are amazing, they were with me and my family through the entire process. I couldn't ask for a better experience or surgeon to put my faith in, I would strongly recommend Dr . Dicker an and his staff for any spinal or brain injuries.
