Had Surgery with Dr. Hixon 2 weeks ago and just went in for my followup this past Monday so I can assure you that he is NOT dead. He is one of the best doctors that I ever came in contact with. I highly recommend him. He spent a lot of time explaining my procedure to me and my family. He is very compassionate and had excellent bed side manners. I would definitely recommend him, he is the best!
