My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

"The good physician treats the disease; the great physician treats the patient who has the disease." William Osler, MD

Early in my training, I was involved in academic research for many years, profoundly enhancing my ability to follow pharmacology, microbiology, clinical research and evidence-based medicine as a whole. I have practiced medicine in the Reno community since 2004, during which time I have honed my skills as a clinician and developed good associations with multiple excellent specialists in town. One of my great passions in life is being an internist.

As much as I take pleasure in the continued intellectual challenges of medicine, it is the patient relationships which bring me sincere joy. I cherish working with my patients to bring them to a life of better health, to help them flourish in their own passions without the burden of navigating the path to wellness alone. The MDVIP program allows me to assess patients more comprehensively than I was ever able to before, to focus on prevention and wellness, even amongst patients that already carry the weight of disease. Maintaining a smaller practice allows time together to explore what is most important to my patients while still focusing on the imperatives of treatment. My goal is to provide comprehensive, compassionate care in an elegant and modern environment, using evidence-based medicine and a solid knowledge of clinical science to guide my patients towards better health.

I do have several other delights in life, foremost being my children Alexander and Zoe. I enjoy travel, gourmet cooking, music, photography, and reading. I look forward to meeting you and learning about the passions which drive your life, as we focus on bringing you to an enhanced state of wellness.

Dr. Ritu Dixon has been wonderful to me and my daughters. She's so caring and best of all, she listens and she is very much concerned with what's going on in our lives be it good or bad. She is emotionally there for you and I know the lines of communication are open always. She has picked a wonderful staff that is also attuned to her patient's concerns. She is the best!!!

from Robert in NV March 1, 2018 for Ritu Varma Dixon, MD

I have been a patient of Dr. Dixon for the last ten years. Throughout that time she has supported me through multiple episodes that required IMRT and surgeries. She has done research on my behalf and pointed me in the right direction.

Most recently in this new MDVIP format, she and her staff have been most helpful.

Thank you emphatically Dr. Dixon..
