I just had bilateral hernia surgery. Dr. Dawson was kind, supportive and did a great job operating and treating me. He explained everything to me so there would be no surprises. He wasn't sure if he could even operate successfully on the second hernia due to scar tissue but he was very successful so now I do not need to have a second surgery. I highly recommend Dr. Dawson.

I wish all doctors exhibited the degree of respect Dr. Dawson gave me. Took his time, answered any and all questions, described things in as much detail as I required, was friendly! Before and after my operation he took all the time needed to talk to my family about the entire procedure and how I was doing. Keep up the great work! So far so good Doctor Dawson!

Dr. Dawson was friendly, helpful and concise in his comments; he kept us fully informed as to all aspects of my surgery, which involved repairing three abdominal hernias in one session, and the results have been excellent. I highly recommend him to anyone considering such surgery.
