Dr. Dixon and his wife, Martha have been my friends for over 40 years. He removed a mole on my face which was pre-cancerous with such precision there was never a scar. He was a customer at our store World Hi-Fi prior to the Brunswick Mall burning. When we I started my new career in real estate he became a loyal client and gave me a new start. We became neighbors in 1993. When my husband became terminally ill, Dr. Dixon would sit with him so he wouldn't be alone. So many memories...he loved music. He and Martha hosted classical music events in their home with guest artists. He was my mentor and i looked upon him as a father for guidance. As I look toward the ocean with a tear and a smile...he will be forever in my heart. Rest in Peace Jim...MaryAnn Mims

I am a former patient of Dr.Dixon. He was an absolute joy to see. Mannerly, respectful and always make you feel comfortable and at ease. At the time I was working at a bank and he removed 15 moles from my face. I went to work with 78 stitches in my face and coworkers asked how can you do that. Told them I wanted them to see the great work he did. The before and after. It resulted in several more referrals for him. My condolences and prayers are with the family.
