Dr. Timothy G Dickson 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.
A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

This office in Lake Orion at St. Joe's hospital and this Doctor are equally a joke. I waited 1.5 hours to see Dr. Dickson for the first time, 45 minutes of which were in the empty room. After the vist and expecting three specific prescriptions refilled which I've had for years, he only filled one and ignored the other two without even telling me he was not going to refill them. His demeanor was best described as aloof and clueless, or perhaps disinterested. He offered no commentary on symptoms related to migraines and sinus issues, and did not seem to even acknowlege anything besides filling out a form. He never even apologized for being 1.5 hours LATE! The staff was not friendly and acted put out when you had questions. The office doesn't even have hand sanitizer and it has a Pediatrics speciality! Worse yet, my wife took our children there and the two month old had to get shots. The one nurse is trying to answer her phone with its ghetto ringtone while spilling the vaccine all over the baby's face. The other nurse was scared to death to put a needle in the baby and had to do so more than twice because she didn't know to push the fluid in after sticking the child in the leg. It was a DISASTER every time we went into that office. If it matters to anyone reading this, I've never had a problem with any other Doctor or Office that I've had in two other states. This one was HORRIBLE. I would highly recommend to stay away unless your time is of no issue and you like very little interaction from the Drs. Anyone who says this place and Dr Dickson is top notch must be getting some medical marijuana prescribed to them! Watch out!
Dr. Dickson has been my primary care Doctor for over 10 years. He is the best Doctor I have been to and Iâve been to my fair share of Docs. He is very knowledgeable and will spend time to understand your issues and concerns. He will take the time to really listen and make his best diagnosis. Referrals are a breeze with the office staff. Very highly recommended!!!
