Every appointment with Dr Dopson has been stat since I have had debilitating pain, due to a herniated disc. He and his staff have been so accommodating & wonderful to me! Every request I have made & need I have is always addressed in a timely manner by his wonderful MA Candy. My first visit I was a work in, and I know I put him behind, but he still took the time to review everything with me & answer all of my questions. He is very thorough, knowledgable, & compassionate toward his patients.
