    it was all good
    Dr. Dickey listened, made sure he gave good information and reassured me about medication safety. I recommend him to everyone I work with.
    satisfactory care
    This doctor is HORRIBLE for treating a patient with type 1 diabetes. I felt he had no real understanding of diabetes, not even the basic of # times to test glucose a day. HORRIBLE experience, I changed primary doctors.
    *--Medicare routine exam by Ellen Roche, FNP, my health care provider, who ordered bone density test and whom I expected to see for a follow-up visit. *--Had bone scan. *--Dr. Dickey's office called. He would like to see me on * about bone scan. *--Arrived on time for appointment and learned they had no record of such an appointment. On looking through their files, it was discovered that they had accidentally cancelled it. Since I was there, they worked me in to see Dr. Dickey. Ellen Roche, FNP, is my primary care person, who works with/under Dr. Dickey. I may be working with Ellen but I cannot be sure that is who I will see. On my introductory visit as a new patient, I had to wait three months to meet him as he was new and had other patients to see. Ellen arranged for me to get wound care for leg wound that would not heal. Progress was slow in healing and the wound care providers were concerned there might be infection. It was cultured. There was a question whether I should receive antibiotics for it. Dr. Dickey declined to authorize because he had never seen it. Well, he had never seen me either as I was still waiting the three months to be initially seen by him. After 6 1/2 months, the wound finally healed on its own.
