Appointments

Dr Dawson is a wonderful understanding caring doctor. The only problem I have ever had in my 30 years of going is not being able to make a appointment in a timely manner if you have a cold or flu to where you need to be seen next day or so. Appointments are hard to get if you want to get in fast.
