My daughter saw Dr. Dodson in the ER. She was complaining of severe abdominal pain. Dr. Dodson did an x-ray, diagnosed my daughter with a peptic ulcer, gas, and a kidney stone. She was sent home with a prescription for previcid. Two days later she had an emergency appendectomy at White Co. Hospital and we feel very lucky that we did not lose her. If Dr. Dodson had done any sort of blood work it would have been evident that my daughter's appendix had ruptured as her white count was extremely high when blood work was finally done. Dr. Dodson's care of my daughter was not even adequate and I have little to no confidence in her skill as a ER doctor and a diagnostician.

This doctor does not respond to patients concerns, refuses to call a patient to discuss anything when concerns are expressed to staff, says doesn't want the patient to have too many doctors giving care, but won't take over the patient's treatment herself. Wants to walk down both sides of the stret at the same time. Sends one to the ER to have a simple blood test that could have been performed in her office, which was open, or simply given the patient a lab slip. Insteads has the patient incurr the extra cost of an ER visit simply to learn WBC count is up due to a cortisone shot a few days earlier and was already back to normal. ER doctor wasn't sure who was crazy - the patient or the doctor who sent her to ER. This doctor has tried to increase her practice by leaps & bounds over the past year by adding nurse practicianers and expanding her office space, but is outdistancing herself and failing her patients in the process. She is out of touch with the patients, leaving all contact with her staff, who give partial information to her to begin with, or refuse to provide her with the corrected information. Staff advises she doesn't want to give referrals to other doctors "because the insurance companies track the number of referrals given out" and "frown on doctors who do." Very mixed messages given by her. Be wise and stay away!
