Missed my appointment with previous Dermatologist in VA due to my 3.5 week- relocation to Ocala. Had a skin itch severely impacting my quality of life. Tried creams & lotions and browsed internet for solutions and a dermatologist.Show more Stumbled on Dr Hicks and his practice. Due to a cancellation, I got an appointment in one day. Pre-appt screening; follow-through before appt; reminders; check-in; treatment rooms; office team (Vickie); and, Dr Hicks and staff were awesome. Dr Hicks is very attentive, engaging, and offers solutions with no BS recommendations after listening and assessing. His efforts and samples gave me new options and skin relief beyond expectations.

More About Dr. Bryan Hicks, MD
Background and Education
Very knowledgeable and thorough
The office support was efficient and friendly. I was greeted and taken to an exam room promptly. Dr. Hicks was professional, knowledgeable and answered all my questions. My overall experience was excellent. Would recommend.
I had an issue and my current Dermatologist was booked out 1.5 months. Looked Dr Hicks up and his ratings were great. Secured an appointment in two days. Intake forms were simple, admission to his office was greeted with smiles and was very easy. Dr. Hicks rating on line was way too low in my opinion. He is a warm compassionate Dr. who listened to my concerns and came up with the most practical and economical solutions. A Six star Dr. in my book and would recommend him highly!
No waiting and staff is extremely nice. The doctor took time to listen to all my concerns.
He is very nice. Took good care of me
Well on my way to clearing up
Went straight back to a room, changed and Dr. Hicks came right in. He did an exam (routine) and told me he felt I didn't need yearly checks...maybe every few years unless I have a concern. He's not one of the doctors that says come back come back, he gave his honest opinion and each person has to decide to go along with their doctors plan but I feel like he's correct. I feel he's thorough and not eating my time...or his. Very good encounter.
Sincerely enjoyed meeting the staff and Dr. Hicks. He took his time and explained what he was going to do with the lump on my hand. Two weeks later there is no more pain and the lump is gone. Thank you very much.
I would highly recommend Dr. Hicks, anybody who needs a dermatologist.

The staff was friendly and helpful at check-in. I was placed in a clean examination room. Dr. Hicks entered five minutes later and began the examination and treatment that took about 15 minutes. We scheduled an appointment for next year. Perfect experience!

I like Dr Hicks. He is matter of fact, knows what he is doing and explains what is gong on. Probably the best dermatologist in Ocala.
My appointment with Dr. Hicks was a follow up appointment from last year for some pre-cancerous spots that he removed. He is very pleasant to deal with and check me out top to bottom for any other spots. Found one spot on my forehead that he was concerned with And liquid nitrogen froze that spot and then discussed again how to avoid problems. very satisfied with my check up.
Today was easy. No surprises. All good. Thanks
