Dr. Dotson is able to provide facts about my terminal illness in a way that is both informational and compassionate. He is extremely helpful, thorough, and reassuring. Best doctor that I've seen in my 45-month journey with Stage 4 lung cancer.

Provider scheduled appointment right after diagnostic testing to discuss results. I LOVE THIS SO MUCH! Eliminates stress of worry over results. Wish ALL providers would do this. I t is smart, taking care of patients concerns immediately!

4/17/2017

I felt like we got off to a rough start because I vented my frustrations to the medical student/resident (not sure which) regarding their tardiness. Once we moved past that I think Dr. Dotson was great. I think he will be a good fit for me going forward. Super nice guy who showed concern for my condition I feel like he will be easy to work with and understand what options I may have pending a diagnosis.

At this appointment, talked about my increasing worst shortness of breath & my desire to go under hospice care. *Dr. Dotson listened to me & my wife, discussed my condition in detail and offered to write the orders for hospice.

Filling this out for husband who has lung cancer and early onset Alzheimer's but is still coherent.

Whenever we have called he personally calls us back and gives us all of the time we need.
