“In Dr. Dickie’s practice, our treatment philosophy revolves around the delivery of compassionate and personalized care. As a staff, our primary goal is to uphold this standard by assisting Dr. Dickie and patients alike.
My role is to facilitate treatment for patients directed to her care. More specifically, I assist with insurance verification & authorization, operative scheduling, surgical clearance and multi-discipline coordination. I believe strongly that honest communication and transparency are the basis of understanding patient desires and achieving positive outcomes. Consistent with these principles, I hope to be of assistance if you are in need of plastic and reconstructive surgery.” -Brooks
