Verified Patient Reviews
Very knowledgeable and precise Doctor. He walks you through everything he is doing and explains it in the simplest term. My daughter was seen by him 3 years ago and now my son is having the same pain. I knew exactly who I wanted him to see. Highly recommended
Him and his staff were very friendly and took care of me.
My visit with dr Dawson was awesome like all my other appointments.
Dr. Dawson is an excellent physician. He was very thorough with his examination and took time to explain to me my options. I found him to be punctual, polite and very experienced.
Great, he is the best
He explained everything that he was doing which was great !
I have been very pleased with the treatment I've received from Dr. Dawson. He has made me comfortable throughout this process and has taken very good care of me.
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 not covered 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 bedside manner. I received x rays, diagnosis and initial treatment. Received referral for PT and meds. Instructions were thorough. So far, so good.
Would never go again.
Dr. Dawson has great bedside manners
Very personable. Explained everything that he was doing and the procedures he was about to perform.
Professional friendly receptionist. The Doctor is very friendly and knowledgeable. Provided the highest quality service.
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 a very 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.
I wish more physicians were as prompt and courteous as Dr. Dawson. He took time to explain procedure options, answered any questions I had, and made sure I understood everything. Thank you!
Dr. Dawson is very professional and willing to answer any questions.
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 also SO sweet and comforting while I had to get a shot in my foot. Overall, awesome experience!
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 in my 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
Very professional. Dr. Dawson's diagnosis was perfect.
Exelent knowledge of the subject matter. I would recomend Dr. Dawson any time any place. Thank you Dr.
Waited over 30 minutes for a 10 minute appointment
Fui Dawson is awesome.
He was great! The visit went very smoothly and I will definitely go back.
From check in to check out...nothing but professional, kind and courteous service. Thanks for talking me through the fear of the injection.
Explained patient concerns and took care of their feet. Recommended actions per their insurance plan
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 5 minutes 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.
I'm always in and out in little are no time
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!
It was ok I was in and out in to time
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 to pathology. 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!
He was very thorough and I felt like he knew what he was doing.
Dr Dawson was very through, courtesy and professional. His bed side manners were excellent .
So glad I was referred to him by Treadway!! He is an awesome podiatrist!!
He was an awesome doctor! Easy to understand and he explained things well.
I would not recommend Dr. Dawson to anyone. I had an ingrown toenail removed and my toe never fully healed - it was a super painful procedure, it got infected, and to top it off, the ingrown toenail is still present. I had a terrible experience with Dr. Dawson.
It was a wonderful experience his assistant is great. Dr. Fui is very thorough and communicates everything so you are clear on what is going on with you.
Wow! A doctor who takes the time to listen and explain! I was very impressed with him showing my foot issues on the X-rays and ultrasound and providing immediate treatment and suggestions for other options. I also liked the prompt check-in and handling of insurance. Highly recommended practice!
This was one my best doctor's visits ever. I was referred to Dr. Dawson by my PCP due to a fractured toe. My PCP's office sent all of my insurance information which helped everything go smoothly. I was able to get an appointment on the same day at the last minute. His office staff was also nice and had a positive attitude. Dr. Dawson was knowledgeable, well-mannered, and prompt. I would definitely go back and refer others. Thank you Dr. Dawson.
I would not recommend Dr. Dawson to anyone. He removed my ingrown toenails terribly - my toe was left with a huge hole which I have to care for daily. Half of my toenail is lifted off my foot. It was an overall terrible experience and I would never ever ever go back again.
First visit was great. Addressed all of my questions and concerns. Look forward to future treatments.
Fast service. Dr. took the time to listen to my concerns.
very helpful and informative. I have been to other doctors for my foot problem and now I get a doctor who will help me.
Dr. Dawson is really great. I am very happy that I found him. I have had severe foot pain for a while and he was able to get diagnosed very quickly.
Professional who looked at me walk and took X-rays for my assessment. Nice.
Nice guy. Very informative. Took the time to explain exactly why he was doing what he was doing and all of the different options etc.
Dr Dawson listen to my concerns, it was nice to be able to go to a doctor who cares. I have had problem with my feet and I feel I will be helped.
Had a plantar fasciia surgery that turned out wonderful. Dr. Dawson did a fantastic job.
Love Dr Dawson. He is amazing. I highly recommend him. He is doing everything in his power to figure out was going on with my foot and ankle.
Very pleased to meet and visit DR. DAWSON office and Staff.
Great staff that took time to listen to your concerns
I was highly dissapointed with the front desk administrative assistant. I waited for 1 hour and 15 minutes past my appointment time while she waited to verify benefits I already had. When I made my initial appointment, I provided full policy information with accompanying numbers. When I arrived, none of this information was checked before my arrival. Thus, I had to wait while she went back with forth with my insurance provider who later confirmed I was covered for everything related to my visit. I was sorely dissapointed! However, Dr, Dawson is great and I'm looking forward to upcoming services related to my injury. He was quick and efficient.
Dr Fui is extremely patient he takes time to understand what problems you are experiencing, and he gives you all the options with pros and cons. I travel every week and my schedule is truly hectic the office always work to get me an appointment even at the last minute. VERY PROFESSIONAL ENVIRONMENT.
I was very please with the friendly staff and doctor!
Great doctor. Very good beside manner. Knowledgeable and sees you right away.
Information he gave was good. Will have to wait until I heal for a full review.
Had never had any toe procedure done before, but he explained what was going on and what he was going to do very clearly and I felt as comfortable as one can when having a toenail removed.
I was greeted promptly by Receptionist Bernadette and made to feel welcome. She explained all insurance and billing procedures, provided me with new patient documents to complete and explained how my visit would go . She checked me in, conducted all medical checks prior to Doctor Fui seeing me. Doctor Fui was very personable and conducted the examination in a very professional manner. He explained all steps the took and all findings. I would recommend my friends to use him as their Doctor.
He was very pleasant and gave me details about everything he was doing. He made me feel comfortable.
First time visit and happy with my visit and treatment. He is very comprehensive and demonstrated concern and professionalism.
I greatly appreciate the time that Dr Dawson took to show and explain to me the current origin of the pain I have been experiencing with my ankle. He was very understanding and "gentle" with the required shot. I am VERY pleased and am thankful to have found Dr Dawson!!
Very thorough and patient !
I enjoyed my visit and I think he has determined my problem and fixed it...
Dr. Dawson was very nice and personable. He was thorough with his assessment and explained everything to me nicely. He seemed genuinely concerned about my diagnosis and recovery/well-being. I can really tell he loves his job and cares for his parents.
Very professional and caring
My visit was amazing with Dr.Dawson.He took the time out to answer any questions I had.He explained to me everything that he was doing.He did not rush and I can't remember his assistant name but she was amazing as well. She took her time with me, made me feel comfortable, and answered any questions I had.
Very knowledgeable and recommended options other than surgery.
I was not very happy when I left because I got a steroid shot. The office is very clean, very professional and I was taken back within five minutes. The nurse checked my vital signs, took x-rays and the doctor came in a few minutes later. I'm going back in two weeks.
Greeted immediately by Ms Bernedette and minimal wait time. Very pleasant atmosphere and Dr. Dawson is a very kind person. Told me everything he was going to do to help make me better.
DR. DAWSON HAS A GREAT BEDSIDE MANNER AND IS VERY FRIENDLY AND GETS RIGHT TO THE POINT. MY RECOVERY FROM THE SURGERY HAS BEEN GREAT.
Awesome Doctor!!!! Great bedside manners & answers every question and concern you might have..Highly Recommended always. Surgery on Foot went well also..
I am so happy with the care I am receiving from Dr Dawson for my foot and ankle. I am finally getting the answers I have been looking for for along time.
The place was clean and the doctor was good. But very expensive.. Made us get some boots and crutches which was expensive.. Could have been cheaper. Spent a lot after insurance coverage.. Very expensive.
Explained in detail, what was my problem, what he was going to do to correct it, and asked me did I have any questions. A very nice person.
Very pleasant and helpful.
I liked the time and the patience that Dr. Dawson took with me. He explained everything that he was doing step by step. The most important part of my visit was "HE LISTENED!" My sister is having problems with here feet and quess who I referred her to yes, Dr. Dawson!
Very good at explaining options and possibilities. Asked me to ask any questions and addressed the issues and made sure I understood.
Dr. Dawson was extremely knowledgeable and explained things very well. He also took to time to learn more about my history to understand more of the issue and about my medical past. Very pleased with my visit and the experience.
Great doc......I would recommend him to anyone. He made me feel comfortable and at ease during my procedure.
Dr. Dawson and his staff were very thorough, professional and compassionate as each and every time I've gone in for an appointment! I completely trust him with my card and highly recommend him for anyone suffering from issues related to their feet and/or ankles!
Great bedside manner. Made you feel comfortable. Went to another podiatrist a few years back and I had a bone spur but he didn't seem confident in treating my condition. Dr Dawson diagnosed me quickly and gave me a treatment plan right away. He's the best of the best wish I had met him a few years back and not waste my time with the other podiatrist. Yay for Zocdoc
Very nice and articulate!! He will be my podiatrist from now on.
Nice doctor. Very hard to get in touch with him - the phone number went to their answering service every time I tried calling in. My last call, to try to confirm my 10:30am appointment, at 10:00am still went to the answering service. It also went to answering service when I was lost and trying to find them. Rather frustrating.
He was very friendly and informative. Will use him again.
I had a very good experience; he listened to my concerns and took the time to explain the condition of my foot. The doctors office assistant was very friendly. I will continue to keep him as my doctor.
Dr. Dawson was very nice and answered all my questions where I could understand and was very accommendating as to how soon he could the surgery.
Dr Dawson was great! Took his time to explain everything.
Dr. Dawson came into the office and didn't even greet me and my family as we were sitting in the waiting area. The consultation was fine but he prescribed medication that I could only get at the front counter so my insurance would not cover it. The secretary was nice but my overall experience was poor.
Very professional, great advice and treatment. Dr. Dawson made me feel like a client/patient should (very comfortable). I thank GOD for Doctors with the knowledge and character that Dr Dawson process.
Extremely pleased with my visit. As a first time patient, it was nice to have a physician who actually "listened" to my concerns. His examination was very thorough and I immediately trusted his recommendations, etc. His nurse Jo was also helpful and professional. Will definitely recommend Dr. Dawson whenever possible.
The doctor was very detailed in his diagnosis of my foot. He made me feel very confident that he could help me by repairing my foot. He is patient with a good bedside manner. He did what he said he would do.
He actually listens! Very helpful and thorough.
This was my first visit with Dr. Dawson. I had an ingrown toenail and he was able to see me the same day I scheduled an appointment on zocdoc.com. The staff was excellent as well and the office was very clean. I highly recommend him! Thanks Dr. Dawson!
Dr. Fui Dawson, is an excellent podiatrist!!! He is efficient, knowledgeable and empathetic. He treats my Mother and I would highly recommend him!!
Dr. Dawson was amaing!! The entire staff were very friendly and inviting towards me and my daughter. Dr. Dawson has a major passion for his work and knows his stuff. I highly recommend him for children.
An amazing find in Smyrna for a picky New Yorker. Dr. Dawson was efficient, knowledgeable and able to adress all of my concerns. I'm so thrilled to have found such a great doctor.
Dr. Dawson was very friendly and knowledgeable. I was very impressed with how he took his time and explained to my husband what he was about to do and why. We never felt as though he was in a hurry even though he had other patients to see. I am happy to say that Dr. Dawson is my choice for myself and my sons going forward. Great doctor! Great bedside manner! Very nice office staff!! We struck gold with this practice!!!
Excellent bedside manner, very attentive and concerned. His staff is wonderful also. They remember you and your history when you call and you get the feeling they really care about your well-being.
I was seen promptly and the procedure went as well as expected. I was given good follow-up instructions as well as an official note requesting a minor workplace accommodation during my recovery.
The best foot doctor!!
He's awesome. Very informative.
He's always professional and he wants to do what's best for you!
Very professional and very thorough!!!!
Very informed doctor and great bedside manners. Not rushed and took the time to answer all my questions regarding my upcoming surgery.
Dr. explained test results in detail.
I guess it was ok. It would have been nice to have meet the doctor. Considering my sons condition explain to me what was his issues of his visit not the secretary (which was very pleasant) .
Great doctor and nurse thx

Dr took time to discuss my issues and explain thoroughly options.
Enjoyed first visit explain what he would be testing for. Gave additional ways to treat feet.

It was my first visit to their office. The staff was competent and friendly. I was super happy that they were able to see me the SAME day I called for an appointment. Dr. Dawson was very kind and made a great impression.
When I go they are always very professional and I am in and out. There is no wait time really and they take care of me. I like this place a lot.
He is AWESOME! He answers all of your questions and he is VERY professional. HE IS THE BEST FOOT DOCTOR TO HAVE!
Dr. Dawson seem like he did not care about what is going on with the pain in my foot and recommended me to get a second opinion. Dr. Dawson did not seem to know how to read the MRI or x-Ray. I would never recommend him to anyone.
I felt very well and should have gone there at the beginning of my problem very satisfied
Competent, efficient, clear communication. Excellent diagnosis, treatment and referral for physical therapy.
Dr.Dawson is GREAT!!! He listens to your questions, very nice and kind, and very knowledgable about my surgery and healing process. He's an awesome doctor!!!!
We love Dr. Dawson! He is so kind, respectful, and professional!
Dr. Dawson was very helpful and explained in a way I could understand.
Phenomenal! Gave great courtesy and understanding of my concerns.
First rate, very professional, transparent service and friendly atmosphere
He is awesome. He took time and actually figured out what was wrong:)
Best service ever, they were fast and courteous.
very well-fast and friendly
Dr. Dawson was very knowledgeable and offered alternative solutions to help with my foot/ankle issues. His staff was friendly, competent, and professional, which was refreshing.
HE IS AWESOME, PROFESSIONAL, AND THE BEST EVER! I WILL REFER HIM TO EVERYONE!!!
Both Dr. Dawson and his assistant were delightful. I will highly recommend him to my co-workers, friends, and family.
I have been continuously pleased with Dr. Dawson. He is informative and thorough in his examinations and recommendations. His staff is always friendly and professional. And, I have seen tremendous improvements due to Dr. Dawson's recommended treatment plan.
IT WAS FINE.
The Dr himself was very knowledgeable on my issues. However I was also under the impression that I would atleast receive a trim however his office considers that to be cosmetic and advised me to see a nail salon. I would have expected better treatment than to be leaving the office with a better visual than a point from where he cut nearly half of my nail off from both my left and right big toes.
I was pleasantly surprised during my visit with Dr. Dawson. He and his staff were both friendly and professional. I was seen right away and was happy that they offered x-rays and sonograms on-site. I already feel better and I am sure that Dr. Dawson's recommended treatment plan will be the best option to getting me back to 100%.
I think the Dr. was very informative and concerned. He was very professional as well as his staff.
Dr Dawson was very caring, knowledgeable, took his time & was very gentle also. I would recommend him to anyone!
Excellent service and very professional.
Great Visit! Dr. Dawson is very knowledgeable and very caring. He explained everything to me about my foot in detail. Definitely recommend him!
He really did an excellent job and took great care of me and his assistant was so nice and caring, even though I had a painful expierance (not the doctors fault) they made me feel calm and helped me through the pain
Very knowledgeable and pleasant. The right doctor to help me with my foot condition.
Very personable and (obviously) really knows his stuff! Awesome doc. Glad I found him.
WONDERFUL Doctor ! He's friendly, knowledgable, patient, answered all my questions, excellent care and bedside manner !
Very nice Dr and staff
Dr. Dawson was very thorough, and carefully listened to my issues. He let me try arch supports before recommending expensive orthotics to reduce costs. He did recommend I get x-rays, and a nerve conduction study because I have an abnormal condition that he could not account for. I got the impression that these are necessary for correct diagnosis and he was not trying to take advantage of me, especially since he had to refer me to another provider to get them done. He explained everything to my satisfaction and trust that he was doing everything in my best interest. I would recommend him to anyone.
Professional, courteous, caring and skilled!
