Patient Comments (8)
Pleasant Grove, UT |
I would never go to him again. I sat in the exam room for 1 1/2 hours and listened to him make phone calls and talk with his family. The nurse told him several times that he had a patient but he dismissed her with a "I know". It was the most frustrating and disrespectful experience with a doctor that I have ever had. Then when he did come out of the office he saw another patient first that had just been put in an exam room. Terrible experience! Steer clear of this doctor.

Dr. Dickenson performed my first colonoscopy. He explained everything he was doing very well, and treated me with kindness and respect. I had a great experience with Dr. Dickenson, and have referred a couple of family members to him for the same procedure.

He is direct and let's you ask as many questions as you would like.

Dr. Dickinson does know what he's doing, and his staff is very responsive. However, the office is busy enough that stuff does sometimes fall through the cracks. Additionally, Dr. Dickinson is so busy that it's hard to get an appointment with him, and he blasts through appointments incredibly fast, sometimes cutting you off mid-sentence. I am still satisfied with the care I've gotten, but I won't say it's perfect.

He seems to be a very caring man and has an awesome bedside manner. I would recommend him on that alone. This is my first visit so I don't have any medical procedures to comment on.

Dr. Dickinson, Beth, and his staff are absolutely the kindest, professional, and helpful with any questions that I have. I have known Dr. Dickinson for many many years. He is the only Gastroenterologist that I would ever go to. My Father-in- law had cancer and because I praised Dr. Dickinson, he changed to Dr. Dickinson. He also saved my Father life when he had esophageal varices. He is a wonderful doctor and I consider him a friend as well. Thank you, Cindy Day
