My visit went well. I was in and out in 30 minutes. The entire staff was very professional and educated on my questions. I suffered plantar facais and they made recommendations before I got what I intentionally went for. My casewasn't as sever as what I was asking for so I did what they recommended and it solved my problem! i'LL DEFINITELY RECOMMEND.

His bedside manner was not bad however there were conflicts with scheduling the day before my appointment. I had to reschedule to a later time. While my wait time was not delayed I was charged for a procedure that was notcovered by my insurance. A procedure I could have handled myself and would have cost me less. He did not communicate with me that if he performed the procedure I would be charged an additional fee. This angered me at least give me the option and let me decide. This demonstrates a lack of integrity, allow the patient to participate in their treatment and be up front and honest from the beginning. I will not go back again.

I was the only one in the office and had a bit of a wait. Payment was discussed up front and insurance verified. Gal up front was very polite and professional. Dr. was clear with diagnosis and treatment options. Decent bedsidemanner. I received x rays, diagnosis and initial treatment. Received referral for PT and meds. Instructions were thorough. So far, so good.

I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Dawson for the same morning due to suffering from acute foot and calf pain in my left foot. Dr. Dawson ran some tests and was able to determine the cause of the issue in avery short amount of time, and we bean a course of treatment that immediately helped alleviate my suffering. I highly recommend Dr. Dawson to anyone who might be suffering from pain or discomfort in your feet or lower extremities.

Do not go to this doctor, You will walk away unsatisfied and feeling like you just got shaken down for quick cash. I went in to talk get an ankle injury checked out + ask some questions about some aching inmy feet. They will ask you to pay up front, even though they don't know the amount your insurance will charge. They did in fact overcharge me and despite telling me that they would refund me no problem if the bill ended up lower ... i had to chase THEM to get the amount refunded. Felt like i was a walking paycheck. Additionally, while my wait time was no more than 15m (most of that discussing my up front payment) i ended up being there for 1.5 hours. The power to their building was impacted and the xray machine was down. I just sat there. When the doctor DID come in, he acknowledged i didn't break anything and then gave me some side advice about possible future injuries. Didn't have any idea what was causing the achy feet and just recommended i go see a different type of doctor. In the 1.5 hours that i was there i maybe spent 9m total with him. Was not pleased with any part of the experience

Both the nurse and the doctor were extremely kind and thorough in my visit. The doctor took his time to explain everything to me and ask me questions. He really listened, which I love in a doctor. The nurse was alsoSO sweet and comforting while I had to get a shot in my foot. Overall, awesome experience!

The doctor and his staff were not rude, but the service was subpar. I arrived a few minutes early, waited about 5 minutes for someone to come to the receptionist area and greet me, filled out paperwork, then waited another 5minutes to be seen. The doctor did greet me nicely, but everything afterwards was just ok. I had a ton of questions about my feet and all of the answers were super short. I felt rushed through the entire 30 minute (includes wait time). I figure everyone in a medical office should have exceptional or at least good service, since the patients have choices. I am not returning. I hope others have a better experience.

The only issue was that I had pre-filled out the sign-in paperwork online in order to save time; however, the info was not in the computer when we arrived for the appt so I had to fill out the paperwork again.Other than that, Dr Dawson treated my 88 year old father with respect and took care of his feet problems very nicely.

Dr. Dawson and his staff were fabulous! I made an appointment for an ingrown toenail and he was able to remove it that visit! He had a good sense of humor and warm bedside manor. His nurse was wonderful as well.Between the two of them, I left with all my questions answered and feeling much better. I would definitely recommend Dr. Dawson!

Dr. Dawson treated me for an ingrown toenail incurred from an injury. He explained the process and treated me quickly. The pain was immediately relieved! I found out the toenail had a fungal infection after he sent the removed toenail topathology. I've been seeing Dr. Dawson now for about four months and on a treatment plan to get rid of the fungal infection in that toe. He has been very thorough and monitors me closely to ensure I can take the medication necessary to fully get rid of it so it doesn't return. Bernadetta, his assistant, is extrememly friendly and helpful. She is amazing with reminders for the appointment by sending a text and calling. Overall its been a great experience!
