Ratings for Dr. William S. Dixon
In my early 30's I had a double corneal transplant due to a progressive eye disease that struck me at age 12, Keratoconus, which would have eventually lead to blindness. Dr. Dixon gave me my vision back and ultimately my life. When my young son accidently knocked my new cornea loose, he dropped what he was doing on Christmas Eve and operated to save my eye. He is a wonderful, caring and patient man. An angel from above sent to help. Thank you Dr. Dixon.
Approx 30 years ago, I had cornea replacement surgery from Dr. Dixon. My life as an accountant or in life would never have been the same with the expertise of Dr. Dixon. A true professional, excellent every way. A picture what a true professional in every sense of the word should mean. Doug Mitchell
I first saw Dr. Dixon in 1981, and he performed my corneal transplant later that year. I still see him every few years, and it is absolutely amazing to me that I am still able to see the same ophthalmologist all these years later. I thoroughly agree with all the 5 star ratings on this site, and would like to thank Dr. Dixon (in the unlikely event he would read these reviews :-) for being one of the constants in my life for over 35 years now!
I have had 2 transplants from Dr. Dixon. I agree with all the comments here pointing to his competence and excellent bed side manor. Notwithstanding the demands on his time etc. he is still down to earth in his dealings with his patients. I have seen a few ophthalmologists over the years. Some could benefit from interpersonal skill improvements. Dr. Dixon would be among the best.
Dr. Dixon gave me my life back. Diagnosed with a relatively rare genetic condition known as Fuchs' Corneal Dystrophy in my 30s, I gradually lost my visual acuity and clarity until almost losing my license to drive at age 54. I saw four other Ophthamologists who basically told me I had bliateral cataracts as well, however refused to operate on the grounds that I could lose what vision I had. Finally I was referred to Dr. Dixon who successfully removed the cataracts in 2006 and eventually performed a DSAEK corneal transplant in 2010. As other reviewers have noted, as good a surgeon as he is, he is equally as genuine and kind as a person. And if your appointment is delayed, it is because he is taking his time with his patients or tending to emergencies. His staff are excellent as well and we are blessed to have this man in our midst. Thank you Dr. Dixon. You are my vision 'saviour'.
Dr. Dixon is a great ophtalmologist and an even better person. I have been seeing him for years for a serious eye condition. In 2005, he performed a successful cornea transplant, which restored the sight in my left eye. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable and skilled, but he has amazing bedside manner. He is friendly, caring, and has a wicked sense of humour which can ease the tension no matter how serious the situation. I dread the day when he may retire, as I think he will be truly irreplaceable. While he sometimes does get backed-up and ends up running late, that is only because he is so willing to see patients who need urgent care on an emergency basis. That is actually a huge plus when serious issues arise.
