Dr. Dickson is an excellent eye doctor. He has treated me for many years as well as my husband and my mother (deceased). He knows his business and goes the extra mile with his patients. Dr. Dickson explains everything so that you understand what's going on with your eyes before you leave the office and that also goes along if you are having a problem with your eyes. I also want to mention that Dr. Kane is also a caring person in the same practice. I would recommend Dr. Dickson to anyone needing an excellent eye doctor.
