My father is being treated by Dr Hixson for pancreatic cancer. I live several states away, so it is important for me to trust in doctors treating him, and be able to contact them if I have questions of concerns. Dr. Hixson takes time to explain things in detail, answer questions, report on progress and has a wonderful bedside manner. He is very knowledgeable, and the equipment in his office is state of the art. He works hand in hand with the chemotherapy oncologist in the same building. I would recommend Dr. Hixson and the Southern Cancer Center to anyone who needs radiation treatment.
Dr Hixson is a caring, personable doctor that really cares about his patients. He spends as long as you want to spend with him so you understand what your treatment and results will be. His staff at the Daphne office are absolutely the best, they really care about the folks they treat, you are not just a number or an insurance check.
