My wife and I are both seniors and have Dr. Dawes as our primary physician. In addition we see his PA Diane. We are so fortunate to have such an outstanding medical team to take care of us. We have lived in several places in the US and we receive the best medical care from Dr. Dawes and his staff that we have ever had. They all are compassionate, extremely knowledgeable and VERY professional. We are so fortunate to have them to care for our medical needs. We are able to get appointments on an as needed basis and they are really great on handling our medicine refills etc. We highly recommend them without reservation to anyone needing professional medical care.

Welcoming office, friendly staff, the providers are very caring they listen to concerns and offer their best medical advice to get you healthy and on the road to recovery. I love that I am able to be seen in one office without having to be sent out to different specialist.

I am forever grateful to Dr. Dawes and his staff. Through his comprehensive medical knowledge, he was able to order the appropriate tests I required and discovered a diagnosis that my specialist was unable to diagnosis. I am on the road to recovery now thanks to him! The staff has always been kind and helpful with the myriad of paperwork, referrals and orders that my complicated medical condition requires. You guys are awesome!

This is the rudest doctor's office in the world! They demand a FEE to become a patient, and they are the most incompetent group of people! I think their practices border on illegal and other doctors in town agree. If the office staff is this horrible, the doctor who employees them must be as bad or worse. Run!!!!!!! Your life depends on it.

Very unprofessional. Doesn't listen to the patient. Refused to answer questions on the side effects of medication he was recommending. Unkept appearance to top it off.

Called a week and a half ago to become a new patient. Whoever answered the phone gave me the run around and told me that I would have to call my insurance and give them the tax id to make sure Dr Dawes was in my network. I spent 1/2 hour on the phone with insurance and found out he was in my network. I called back and the lady said she would have to verify my insurance. When I explained I already did so, she told me to fill out a new patient packet. I brought in my packet the same day and was to

I have been with Dr Dawes for over 15 years and he is a very professional knowledgeable doctor. He has treated me and my wife for a large variety of medical problems and has always given us excellent results. You cannot find a better doctor in this area.

I appreciate his vast knowledge and his "no nonsense" approach. He has done an incredible job helping me restore my health and decrease the amount of medications that I take. Every other Dr. that I have gone to just writes prescriptions instead of trying to help me. Thank you Dr. Dawes!

Terribly crowded office. Running very late with all patients. Waiting room has TV going with nothing but messages about sickness and diseases, what to look for, what to ask your doctor, what medications to take, etc... very unpleasant environment.
