When I first met Dr. Dodson he was informative and confident of what had to be done, he took the time to explain what the procedure was and what to expect in the months that followed, he was on point. I feel as though he did a excellent job I've seen other people who have had the same surgery as I had and can see the the scar right down the middle of they're knee I can barely see mine. I would definitely recommend him and his PA Melissa Scheller they are very good. I don't usually give 5 stars but I had to straight down the board. Thanks again for a job well done.
My injury was an extremely traumatic one, career ending. Tearing your acl, mcl and meniscus all at once is not the ideal situation when you're trying to get to school on an athletic scholarship. My entire recovery process with Dr. Dodos was great. I feel like he could really relate to me, and he used himself to explain how he was going to do my surgery and how it related to me and my body type. Dr. Dodson is very experienced and I would recommend him to anyone.
Dr. Dodson was curt and dismissive, spent minimal time and was rude. AVOID.
