Dr. Dawson is a gifted surgeon and an all around amazing human being. He is incredibly knowledgeable, empathetic, and funny too! Dr. Dawson performed a biopsy on my neck to classify my already stage 4 cancer. While I was terrified of my situation and the surgery at hand, he made me feel so comfortable and calm, answered every single one of my questions, and consistently reached out post-surgery to make sure I was recovering ok. I have never met a physician who is so good at what they do while also having excellent bedside manner too - and believe me, I’ve met a lot of physicians. I genuinely could not recommend him enough!!

I could not be more pleased with my experience with Dr. Dawson. Throughout my entire procedure, he provided exemplary care and communication, thoughtfully addressing my many questions, and easing my concerns by finding ways to always make me feel comfortable. He was knowledgeable and thorough with his examinations, exhibiting a charm and bedside manner that kept me feeling confident that I was in good hands. His office was the perfect mix of professionalism and style, and his staff was always extremely personable. He was always accessible, in constant communication, before and after my surgery. I am grateful to him and the hospital staff for their compassion, and attest that Dr Dawson is a wonderful and brilliant surgeon. I feel fortunate having been under his care.

Dr. Dawson is a very caring person. After explaining the whole procedure to me he made sure that the day of the surgery I was relax and calm. After the surgery he stayed in contact with me and kept me informed of everything I would experienced after the surgery.

As a former patient of Dr. Dawson, I came back. Dr. Dawson not only remember me but treated me the exact same way. He treated me with dignity, respect and listened to what I had to say. He did not rush me, did not judge me and gave me the time that I needed. He is a great surgeon and physician.

Friendly, professional and efficient. From online registration with clear and precise forms, the pleasant waiting room and no wait for the appointment- the whole experience was seamless and ‘painless’. Dr Dawson is personable and thorough. Fortunately my problem does not seem to be too significant. I cannot recommend this office highly enough - but will recommend it whenever I can.

Dr Dawson is on a level by himself and cannot be matched with any other Surgeon I have met. He took his time to explained every detail of his operation and gave my options to think about. From the moment I met him I felt I was in good hands. His kindness, patience and manners puts one at ease.

Dr. Dawson is the kindest, most compassionate doctor I have ever had. He explains the procedure step-by-step in a very reassuring way. He also operated on my father in the past and was so wonderful. I would recommend him highly to anyone. He is a gem.

Dr. Dawson was well prepared for the consultation since he had operated on me before and had all the facts with details from the first operation. Then he explained me with details how he will proceed to attack the hernia problem this time. Every detail was covered in our consultation!
