Dr. Emily Dixon: Importance of Female Doctors to Female Patients

In the world of sports medicine, Dr. Emily E. Dixon is a great example to women, both young and old, athlete or not. A former competitive soccer player, she has a personal interest in taking care of the female athlete. She is board-certified in family medicine and sports medicine and has years of family practice with a focus on sports medicine. It is that professional expertise and unwavering dedication to championing women’s health that allow Dr. Dixon to bring unique perspective and expertise when caring for the female athlete.

Dr. Dixon says it best. “I can relate to female patients on a different level,” she said.

“Sometimes females may be hesitant to share things like their menstrual history with a larger, male orthopedic surgeon. So, it’s nice for me to provide that representation” allowing them to truly be heard. That type of relationship is important for every doctor and patient as it helps lead to more accurate diagnosis and more effective treatment plans. It’s important to understand that bodies, muscle tone and muscle health differ from men to women.

By building strong doctor-patient relationships based on trust and empathy, Dr. Dixon empowers her patients to prioritize their health and well-being. From the current competitive female athlete to the postmenopausal woman who is simply trying to exercise to maintain health and weight, the entire team at Beacon Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine knows how to provide the best in care. Dr. Dixon is an important member of that team, providing all her patients with comprehensive care tailored to their specific circumstances and needs.

So, whether you’re a professional athlete or a weekend warrior, prioritizing your health means finding a doctor who understands and supports your unique needs. Perhaps that someone is Dr. Emily Dixon. Schedule an appointment today.
