I would highly recommend Dr. Vanessa Dickey to anyone who needed her care. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2013. She has been there for me every step of the way. She always takes her time with me and answers all my questions. She comforted me in times of fear, always giving me the facts and helping and guiding me to make the right decisions for my health. She is compassionate, knowledgeable and helped me get through my cancer. I realize that I am blessed to have had her on my team.

Dr. Dickey was extremely professional and made me feel so relieved when I went into her office. She treated me for lung cancer and I am now cured of this disease. I was coughing really bad when I arrived at her office and she started me on some medications which helped me so much. I would highly recommend her to anyone with lung cancer. She was also very kind for my endless amount of questions and was very patient with me and my wife. She made my visit comfortable.

I'd NEVER recommend her to anyone. My first clue was my initial visit; after positive biopsy for breast cancer, it took three weeks to get an appointment, I arrive to learn they don't have my records, so nothing could be done. Never during the entire one year process did Dr. Dickey even examine me....I LITERALLY NEVER PUT A GOWN ON IN HER EXAMINING ROOM. Furthermore, she NEVER updated my records with the Providence system, so my other doctors didn't know what was going on. ZERO credibility!
