Dr. Dickson thank you! You were awesome! I appreciate your patience with me today. I was so scared.
Absolutely the best! I love Dr. Dickson and staff are the best! I look forward to seeing them. You will not be disappointed!
Dr. Dickson is one of the best doctors I have ever been to! My case is very complicated and he took the time to fully explain everything before my surgeries. I was referred to him by an orthopedic surgeon in Denton. Dr. Dickson is a real pro and is super knowledgeable with the surgery to the finger/hand.
[Dr. Dickson was a] great hand surgeon! Highly recommend him!
Dr. Dickson did carpul tunnel release on my right hand and a few weeks later did surgery to remove a mucos sisk from my left hand. I was very pleased with the whole experience. Everyone was pleasant and helpful. Dr. Dickson saw me every visit and answered any concerns I had. I will recommend him to anyone needing care.
