Dr. Dixon is a fantastic ENT and a delightful person. When I first saw him, he was the only ENT who was determined to fix my chronic issues, and he performed my septoplasty in February of last year. That surgery changedmy life! I'm forever grateful! Anyway, I saw him again this week for an unrelated issue, and as usual, he was very thorough and spent ample time discussing the issue and potential treatment plans with me. He is great at addressing all my many questions and making sure I am comfortable with the outcome of the visit and our next steps. I feel very lucky to have such a great healthcare professional on my side.

Dr. Julian Dixon was great, his reception area/check-in team were not fantastic. Very nice ladies, but they did not seem to know what was going on. They repeatedly called me at the wrong phone number before the day of my appointmenteven though I had watched them change it in the system the previous time I had come in so I showed up the the appointment and wasn't able to get the CT I needed. I have chosen to find a different doctor with a more organized patient treatment area.

Dixon is very intelligent in his field, but his communicative skills with his patients are terrible, he speaks way to fast and doesnt let you talk and just wants to move on to the next patients, I felt like just anumber to him. Just wanted my money it seems like and wanted to give me optional surgery

Doctor was great - took the time to explain things to me and adequately answer my questions. The pricing is a little confusing (since this clinic is located in a hospital, there's the regular provider fee as well as a facilityfee so not sure how pricing will shake out). But the doctor is highly recommended!

My appointment was scheduled for 9:30am. When I arrived, they required me to fill out paperwork and information that I already provided during the online check in via ZocDoc which took about 20 minutes to get the paperwork and to completeit. No one was at their check in window when I first arrived, had to wait several minutes. The doctor had an appointment scheduled for 10:00am so he only saw me for 5 minutes to clean out my ear canals but didn't do it thoroughly. My left ear feels more clogged than it was before I got there so I made an appointment at the Physicians Clinic for tonight so they can take a further look at it. The doctor didn't ask me if I felt better, he just said all done and escorted me out to greet his next patient. I felt like as if the doctor didn't take my appointment seriously.

Dr. Dixon did an excellent job with my ear cleaning as well as informing me of when to schedule my next appointment. Ear cleanings should be every six months. However, I was charged by both the Weiss Hospital and his office.I felt this was unfair since I only went to his office which happened to be in the hospital. With my salary, I cannot afford to see Dr.Dixon again. Only see him if you can afford the charges of both the hospital and his office.

Literally every interaction with Dr. Dixon has been a pleasure, from his front of office staff to his wait times to his demeanor and ability to clearly explain things to me. Not for nothing, I was incredibly pleased with the resultsof my surgery with him. I've also personally recommended him to several people in the short time he's been my doctor. Fantastic professional.

He is an amazing doctor. I have been back and forth to my primary care physician about four times before they decided that I should see an ENT. I'm am extremely grateful that I chose to see him. He is verythorough and attentive. He went above and beyond my expectations. He was able to really get to the underlying cause of my problem.Yes ,I have to make a few more appointments to see him, but because he was so knowledgeable and considerate I have no problem with that. I would definitely recommend him.

Dr Dixon is the best! I suffered years with sinus problems and I always noticed my nose was a bit crooked. I have had sinus sugery in the past and it was not successful. When I met with Dr. Dixon hewas the 4th ENT I had met. He was incredibly kind and took the time to explain what was wrong, what he could do to fix my nose, and what I could expect. He explained in great detail the procedure and made sure I felt comfortable by answering any questions I had. My sinus problems had affected my career as a flight attendant as well as my personal life. After my visits with him I felt excited and confident to get my sinuses and nose fixed. After sugery I was not in a lot of pain and it was just like he had explained to me. Now I am 7 weeks out of sugery and I have never breathed better in my life!! I can go to work with out pain, I sleep better, and best of all I cannot believe how great my nose looks!! It was just what I wanted! I am so happy! In short if you are looking for a highly qualified rhinoplasty sugeon or need sinus surgery in Chicago you have to go to Dr. Dixon, I highly recommend him!

He was very straight forward and told me everything I needed to know and then some, very modern. The procedure that was done on me is known to have one of the most painful recoveries lasting approximately 2 weeks and gettingworse every day. Because of the method the Dr Dixon used during my procedure, my recovery was nearly painless and extremely simple. The methods he uses are minimally invasive and help make recovery as fast and easy as possible. I would definitely go to him again if I was in need of any further consultation or surgery, probably the best doctor/surgeon I have ever utilized.
