I can honestly say I have recommended this Dr and care staff to friends and family. I have been happy with everyone (except 1 receptionist that may have been having a bad day). Keep up the awesome commitment to caring for patients!

everything was excellent

March 09, 2017

Dr. Dexter was my surgeon 12 years ago. He made me feel comfortable with all that was going to happen then. So, when I found him, scheduled my appointment and had my appointment I was treated with the most upright respect. He asked and continued asking until he could get enough information, then the examination was thorough. At the completion of the examination Dr. Dexter took the time to explain what he found and where we would go from here. I actually asked him if I could give him a hug because I felt like he actually listened and wanted to sincerely help me. I had seen a physicial previously but that doctor did not find anything. Dr. Dexter confirmed there was something and he would schedule tests to find out what we are dealing with. I cried on my way home from the relief that he confirmed my issue and relief that I am not going crazy. I have recommended Dr. Dexter for the years since I had him for my first surgery. He is great at what he does. He chose the right profession because he is sincere, patient, caring and supportive. He is the BEST!
