Great Service Thank you Dr. Dixit!
Las Vegas, NV |
Dr Dixit was very thorough. I would recommend him.
Las Vegas, NV |
Dr. Dixit is an excellent doctor. He always greets me with a smile on his face. My first visit after a bit he told me he was sure I have MS but had to do some tests to confirm. He spends all the time necessary to answer all questions and to explore treatment options. I am so thankful he is my doctor as he makes me feel at ease with a difficult diagnosis. Thank you Dr Dixit and all of your wonderful staff. I really love your office!

Dr. Dixit is a good doctor. I do recommend him to other people. He is very help
Amazing service
Livingston, NJ |
I felt like he didn't listen or have any concern. I'm sure he has much more serious patients than me, but I'm terrified. I tried to fax in results from some follow up testing and was told he won't look at it without an appointment. I do have one. In mid-April to check for stroke activity. Because I want to wait almost 2 months to find out if I've had strokes? In the 3 minutes he spent with me, he poked me with some toothpicks and left. I was devastated and felt dicarded.
Las Vegas, NV |
Stay away from this doctor. I've had several neurological workups, EMGs & Nerve Conduction Studies done in the past, so I know from experience what they are supposed to be like. During my first appt he tapped my elbows & knees to check for reflexes (4 taps total) & then left the room! He spent less than 5 min with me & barely spoke to me. My follow up for my Nerve Conduction Test was the same. He spent less than 5 min. The way he treats his patients is unethical to say the least.

What a wonderful doctor - kind, compassionate, genuinely listens and tries his best to help. Ten out of ten if that was an option, as well as Allison Matilla, Nurse Practitioner. Sincerely, Michael C Kirk
Downey, CA |
I would recommend Dr. Dixit, he's good at what he does.

Good bedside manner
Las Vegas, NV |
What a horrible office! Dr Dixit doesn't listen to symptoms and just tries to give you pills and get you out the door. His staff never sends over referrals like they say they're going to and apparently they terminated me a few days ago for no reason, because I kept calling to make sure referrals were sent because they haven't been? Truly the worst doctor's office I've ever been to.
Las Vegas, NV |
I would give this Clinic is 0 if I could. His staff couldn't fill out a return-to-work form properly. Dr Dixit didn't bother to review my case before I came in for follow-ups and he blatantly refused to fill out paperwork for my employer. They failed at sending over referrals to the Mayo Clinic as well as prescriptions to my Pharmacy. Dixit didn't listen to me regarding my symptoms. I called every single day until they finally looked at my MRI. I wouldn't recommend that my worst enemy go here.
Las Vegas, NV |
Everyone was kind and helpful and Dr Dixit was especially kind and knowledgeable.
in Las Vegas, NV |
Everyone in the office was very helpful & friendly. Dr. Dixit answered all our questions & gave us options of what we could do to help our mom. We will be seeing him again

Professional, courteous, friendly and competent
in Henderson, NV |
Professionalism and care were the things I recognized right away. Nice staff and Dr. Dixit was easy to talk to and very competent, caring and made sure I understood my diagnosis and what to expect for upcoming visits.

My wife has seen Dr. Dixit for 25 years. Since he was at the school of Medicine. I personally would not trust her with anyone else. I personally feel he has saved her life. David Easton
in Las Vegas, NV |
After 5 years of casting about for diagnosis and multiple specialties, Allison Mattila was able to identify and diagnose my problem and recommend a course of action. She is an amazing doctor and person. Camilla Cheater has been caring, available to address concerns and act as an conduit for information from Matilla between appointments and cares about the medical and emotional well-being of her infusion patients. Going to the office has become much like visiting friends, not a cold drs office

This doctor is a crook, he's not concerned about patients health, only about filling up his pockets. Do not trust him!
