Ratings for Dr. Russell A. Dickey
Dr. Dickey has been my ob/gyn for five years. I went through one pregnancy under his care. He has always been extremely reassuring ad professional. The nurses were friendly and the office staff was also flexible and helpful. He gets a high review in my book.
I was recommended by a couple of ladies that I work with (3 to be exact). I had the same Dr. for 10 years before he closed his practice and moved. I went to Dr. Dickey and new that I had found my new Dr. for as long as he will be around. His bedside manner was amazing and made me (someone who is very modest) feel at ease with everything that was going on. I would recommend Dr. Dickey to anyone that is really looking for a great Dr.
Honestly the wait in the waiting room has never been bad for me. The front end runs very smoothly. I found Dr. Dickey to be very rushed after the intitial consultation. Always reading the computer chart while I was talking, rather than brushing up on it before coming into the room. I don't know if anything I said was really heard. The nurse is great - very easy to talk to and patient. The bookeeping is screwy to say the least. I've been overbilled, then had a credit, then a balance due. I'm in the process of finding another office - just wanted to voice my experience.
I would not recommend Dr. Dickey. He always seemed hurried when I visited, with one hand on the doorknob. He is also one of the reason I lost my twin boys (the other is the specialist he was consulting with). Though I was describing pain and problems with the pregnancy, he had patted my shoulder and told me it was typical pregnancy pains. When I called his office the night before I lost the boys describing losing my mucous plug and asking (several times) if I should go to the hospital and that I was scared my water was going to break, the nurse kept reiterating to just go to sleep and call the doctor in the morning, with fatal results. He does NOT care about anything other than his bottom line.
Dr. Dickey has been my OB/GYN for four years. He has seen me through three difficult pregnancies, three cerclages, and a miscarriage. The man is personable, knowledgable, and doesn't pull any punches. One of my favorite aspects of his personality as a doctor is his ability to trust his patients and their own ability to take of themselves. He doesn't preach- he lays all the cards on the table, discusses options, and then trusts you to do what's right for you. His nurses are just as fantastic as he is- as is the whole office, really. They remember their patients- even if it's been a year- and truly are caring folks.
