I came to Dr. Dixon with a painful bunion, not really knowing what I could feasibly do about it. She asked me a lot of questions to understand not just what was happening with my foot, but what my concerns were. She took a lot of time to explain my options to me, both surgical and non-surgical, and made sure that I understood so that I could make the best decision for myself. She was amazing – I didn’t feel rushed, and felt really comfortable asking questions! I would trust her with any problems I had with my feet.

What to say about Dr. Dixon other than she is a one woman wonder. My best friend took a12′ fall while helping a friend move a piece of furniture downstairs. He had a pilon fracture of his right leg and, because he is on SSI, I dispaired for his care. Was he going to be crippled for life? Would he get a surgeon that would be able to deal with the complexities of this accident? Would anyone care about him enough to ensure his rehab? Yes. He was! So fortunate to have had the great fortune to have Dr. Alexis Dixon as his surgeon and friend. She can be starchy, true, but that is because she cares to make sure that rehab, therapy, and directions are taken seriously. My friend is recovering from this accident and is now taking an SDI class. He has a way to go yet but its looking good. So grateful for Dr. Dixon.
