Fantastic Surgeon

Dr. Dickinson did my lumpectomy when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. He did an excellent job. I was very happy with my results! He is also very warm and compassionate and seemed genuinely concerned about my care. He helped me understand my options, answered my questions and made sure he didn't leave until I had all the information I needed/wanted. He called me personally with biopsy results. Some staff can come off a bit lukewarm (certainly not all) so I wish they would remember that many of us are scared and don't want to be going through surgery (whether for cancer or other reasons).

Dr. Dickerson performed two surgeries on my wife. He is a very skilled surgeon whom I would put my utmost trust in based on how my wife's surgeries went.

I have been Dr. Dickinson's patient several times and he is truly a caring, conscientious and skilled surgeon. He takes the time to explain and answer questions regarding procedures and treatment options. He is also willing to not operate and suggest alternative treatments if that in the patient's best interest.
