Dr. Dodd lied to me multiple times to coerce/trick me into doing what she wanted. I had a major surgery that wasn't necessary. My problem could have been managed medically. She told me my only treatment option was surgery. If she tells you that you need surgery, get a second opinion from someone not associated with her. Do not trust anyone she refers you to. She's saccharine sweet. You just can't trust her.
If you need a referral to another physician, Dr. Dodd will send you to UTMC. There you will be treated by a resident. A resident is an MD who has just finished school and is not even licensed to practice medicine. They have to complete 3 years of residency to even be able to apply for a license. If you tell Dr. Dodd that you don't want to be a teaching case, she will lie to you and tell you the Dr she is sending you to doesn't work with residents. She will pressure you into going to UT. She also lied to me about needing surgery. She told me that surgery was my only treatment option. After I had major surgery I found out that an interventional radiologist could have treated me. I would have missed a few days of work instead of 3 months.
Dr. Dodd's bedside manner is good, I suppose, although frankly it could have been toned down a notch or two. That's not my real issue, however. I went in for a yearly but had been having issues that I was sure Dodd would address and take seriously. She brushed them aside and didn't even make note of them in my file. She was so nice that I felt it hard to fight back and be my own advocate. I won't be back, though.
