I felt very confident with the treatment Dr. Hicks provided on my fractured foot - he was very caring and concerned with the worries & possible problems my condition could have - I would definitely return for future treatments and certainly would recommend family or friends.
Patient | December 21, 2016
Dr. Hicks is absolutely one of the best drs. that I have ever had. I am thrilled to have found him--he is incredibly patient and kind. I did not feel rushed at all even though there were a lot of other patients waiting. His explanation of my issue was given in layman terms, and I must say that he has a gift of being clear in his explanations and instructions. The whole orthopedic group is exceptional, and Dr. Hicks certainly fits right---I can't say enough positive things about him!
