- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

My first visit. I was very impressed. Imagine this...he listened! I've been experiencing problems with a pain medication. I found him well-versed in the side-effects I'm experiencing & his suggestions have helped. My long-time PCP died(13 days before I fell) ; Dr. Dickson is my 4th new PCP & I've finally found a doctor who listened instead of issuing instructions/changing medications without first determining my history, including with medications. The other doctors didn't even make note of my fall/injury & the repercussions thereof.
Dr. Dickson's office has a notoriously long wait time. I find it is due to the fact that Dr. Dickson spends time getting to know and is interested in all of his patients. He does not rush in and rush out. He treats you like a person, and assesses all your needs, including emotional ones. If you want to be in and out in 30 minutes, this is not the office for you. If you want someone who is thorough and cares about you, then I highly recommend him.
This office is the most uncaring, most unprofessional office I have ever been to. They are rude on the phone, I haven't seen the Doctor in over 10 years, just one of the PA's. It takes over two weeks to get a refill on any medicine, but the most important one is my migraine medicine. All they care about is getting money from the insurance company for office visits and co-pays. Stay away from this office and go to a doctor that actually cares about their patients!!!!!!!!!! In 2013, he was sanctioned by the Medical Board for his unprofessional behavior. Stay away from this office!!
Dickson's office help is nice. His PA is very good. The nurses are good. One can see the PA quickly, but one has to wait months to see Dickson, even an established patient. The wait time in his office is long. He likes to joke around with his nurse or attendant. If a statin medicine causes you to feel bad, he doesn't want to hear it --take it anyway! He's rude and nearly vomited on me once. He didn't like for me to ask questions and didn't like it because I assisted my husband. He and his PA don't agree on the same methods of treatment. I'm surprised she's still with him. We stayed with him 3 years - 2 years too long. I'm glad we finally left!
