I can't believe the high ratings this man has been given by patients. My mother is blind in one eye, and the other has been giving her problems for the past two years. She has seen over 15 different specialists. A week ago she had a scare.. Everything was a blur.. She panicked and had to be picked up and taken in for an emergency appointment. Dr Roy saw her and said that her cornea was inflamed and to stay home until her vision cleared up. It has been a week and her vision has NOT cleared. She had her week follow up appointment with Dickson today. He was so sweet... Kind... All smiles as he spoke to her about her blind eye (that was not the concern) He asked her his first question "How does your eye feel" She responded "My eye is blurry" He raised his voice and said "THAT WAS NOT WHAT I ASKED YOU, I SAID HOW DOES IT FEEL!!" She hesitated and he followed with an extreme sigh. She kept trying to speak and he wouldn't have it. He looked frusterated and was acting like a child. The list goes on and on about this horrible 2min appointment. He put letters on the wall... shoved the ocular machine thing to her face and said "Read the letters" when she struggled he followed with another pathetic sigh. She got Both letters wrong. His responce "SEE! YOU CAN SEE PERFECTLY FINE" When she said "No I can't, everything is blurry" He sighed, got pissed off and said "NO your fine!" She tried explained that she hasn't been back to work yet and he raised his voice yet again saying over and over "Theres nothing wrong with you" She needed a note. He said no. Said he felt like he was being taken advantage of and kept going on about her eye being fine. Also said he had nothing to do with what the other Doctor in the same office said or did. HE also added.. "If your works calls, Ill tell them that you can see crystal clear" To all the people out there that think he is a good Doctor. Our experience was not so today. He only likes to hear the sound of his on voice. Im sure people feel like his persona is friendly and jovial but at the core of it HE DOES NOT LISTEN or CARE. Good luck

This Dr waited after his regular work hrs to see me. He diagnosed a hole in the macula of my eye and then called the Retinal surgeon after he got home that night. I was seen by the Retinal Doc early the next morning and had repair surgery shortly thereafter. I can not give too high a recommendation for this Dr. He also has provided the best of eyecare for me after release from the surgeon. I'd send any member of my family or any friend to him. For me that's about the highest form of honor that I can give to a provider. Thanks a'bunch Dr Dickson :c)
