Attention to detail and willingness to learn
Several years ago, we planned a safari trip to Africa. Africa presents disease challenges we don't normally get in Kansas. We notified Dr. Dillon where we were going and gave him information from the safari company on recommended medications and treatments. Rather than just accept that information, Dr. Dillon sat down with us, reviewed the information in detail, and then got out the reference books to compare. He took the time to consider the details, the options, our age and medical histories, and prescribed accordingly so that we would be well covered on our trip. The amazing thing was the fact that he sat down and went into the details with no time pressure. Past experience with other doctors would be "hurry up and get this over with, I have other patients to see" sort of attitude. Never the case with Dr. Dillon. We were exceptionally well pleased by his care, and still are.
