Dr. Dexter is a rare surgeon. Not only is he an excellent surgeon but he has excellent people skills. He exudes concern and patience. His demeanor is relaxed and his approach is caring. He has a great way of using humor to relax the patient and family.r He encourages patient engagement in the visit. He spends whatever time is necessary to answer questions or concerns. He inspires such confidence that by the end of the visit he was able to reduce my anxiety level substantially and he empowered me to proceed with my needed surgery. Knowing I was anxious, he made a date available within the same week. The day of surgery his calm, confident demeanor and a brief touch of my hand, had me headed off to surgery confident and ready to be on the the road to recovery. He is a remarkable healer!
