Review of Dr. Franklin Jr

- |

We went to Dr. Donald Franklin, Jr. after seeing several other good doctors, who were not able to help us. Dr. Franklin listened carefully, was caring and thoughtful towards my husband and me. He was able to save my husband's life. I know The Lord used Dr. Franklin to bless us with healing. I thank God for Dr. Donald Franklin, Jr.. His wisdom is a gift.

Review of Dr. Gupta


Visited the provider's office for recommendations regarding dialysis. He would constantly interrupt me while I spoke and continuously sighed as I shared my concerns. Provider lacked sympathy and more importantly, was unprofessional in patient care. He never made an effort to make a decent eye contact or shake hands before, during, or after the encounter. I would not recommend this provider to anyone in need of a nephrologist

I have only seen him twice, but I was very impressed. I got there ten min. early took me back in 5 min. after the nurse left and I to wait on him maybe three min. He asked me questions and explained a lot to me. i felt there feeling much better thanks to him. He took his time and answered anything i asked. His nurse, Elaine, was super nice also. So thanks to both.

Dr. Gupta was kind and informative. He spent alot of time with my Father. He explained care and labs very well using non medical terms for easy understanding. All of the office staff were wonderful!

Please do NOT entrust a loved one or yourself with this doctor!! He did not look out for the welfare of the patient and made decisions that were not his to make!! He was not truthful with the patient's advocate!!

Review of Dr. Grewal

- in Cleveland. TN |

If there were enough room I would 10 star him. He has helped me keep my 19 year kidney transplant and always takes time for any ailment. Also a 56 year type 1 diabetic that he handles all my med needs to protect kidney. He is the best and I highly recommend him. He cares over & beyond

Review of Dr. Crawford

- in Ooltewah, TN |

Dr. Crawford is kind, compassionate and innovative. I have many doctors, ENT, liver, GP etc. but Dr. Crawford knows the most about me. I'm not just a chart. We are partners in my health.

Review of Dr. Tumlin

- in Chatsworth, GA |

I have been a patient of Dr. Tumlin's for 8 years. He explained my medical condition (SLE) in great detail and provided solutions and treatment to help me through the process. I was also a trial patient. I never felt like I was pushed to enter the trial and was always assured my health was top priority. I have been in remission for 5 years. I am thankful of knowledgeable doctors like Tumlin to get me where I am today!
