Dr. Dix is the best doctor I have ever had! She listens and takes time to strategize with you about options. She understands both pharmaceutical and alternative therapies and uses both together. Her staff is friendly but sometimes unorganized, wait times can be long but understandable.

I think that Dr. Dix is amazing. I understand that its challenging to get an appointment with her because I didn't want to see the nurse pract. I preferred to see Dr.Dix. She's worth to wait.
