Specialties

Dr. Peter S Dixon has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • Medical Oncology

    Think of an oncologist as your main physician for cancer care. After being diagnosed, you’ll meet regularly with an oncologist to explore and manage your treatment options, as well as monitor your condition throughout the process. Medical oncologists are extremely knowledgeable in various types of cancer treatment and can recommend the right method for the type and stage of cancer you’re facing.
    They may also refer you to additional specialists throughout your care, but they will always be your home base for questions and support. It’s also worth mentioning that medical oncologists deal mostly with solid tumors while hematologists specialize in cancers that involve blood disorders, such as leukemia.

Outstanding compassionate doctor

Dr. Dixon is the most competent, outstanding and compassionate doctor I have ever had. I was referred to him by a friend many years ago and not only did he save my life but he continues to give me the same level of care today that he did 13 years ago.

Incredibly thorough and kind

I love Dr. Dixon. He is very thorough, kind, compassionate and straight to the point. He does not rush patients and he makes sure his patients understand their condition and options. I was recommended to him by a friend and have also recommended him. All doctors should be half as great as Dr. Dixon.
