I feel he don't listen to me. He seems to be confused when He sees me and Instead of looking at my chart to see where I stand in treatment he asks what's been going on and wants to know what happened, why am I being seen by him etc. Bed side manner is awful. He is very set in his ways I guess....

Dr. Dyer has great staff. He, I believe, doesn't listen & needs to retire. After visits every 3 weeks for 10 months, he has to be reminded where I work. I also believe that he has poor judgement of my areas of complaint. During my first visit, he was questioning me about my house arrest bracelet & said that I had too many gadgets because I had my phone and tablet with me but you need something to do while you wait to be seen for over an hour to end up in and out of your room in under 10 minutes.

He has horrible bedside manner. He didn't even introduce himself to me when he came into the room and did not mention anything about my x-rays until I specifically asked him to explain the results. He talked to me like I was an idiot when I tried to explain to him my level of discomfort. I am not able to use crutches because of other medical conditions, and he did not seem to care to assist me in finding other alternatives. I had an appointment at 3:40 and did not see him until after 6.

I waited a very long time to see him and he spent nearly no time with me. He came in, looked,, told me I needed arch supports and a brace which is the same thing I've been hearing for over 20 years. He told me I didn't need surgery, and asked me who told me that I did. I have had 3 other orthopedic dr. Tell me I do need it. As of now, I'm walking on my bone because my ankle isn't lined up properly to my foot and it causes problems all the way up my body. I even fractured a pelvic bone
in Chattanooga, TN |
Dr. Dyer is sarcastic, dismissive, degrading, and insulting. He seems not to care one bit about his patients.

my appointment was @ 2.30 got seen @ 5.00 he told me i was not in pain , then asked me if i had a high school ed. he was rude and talked down to me as if i was stupid. he is to old to be practicing med. i would not take my dog to him. STAY AWAY!!!!!!!
