Review of Dr. Smith

- in Harrison, TN |

Our fourth month old had a dermatoid cyst. Dr. Smith was nothing short of amazing. She explained it well and took time out to converse with our family. We felt special. We called her during her on call hours and she took even more time out for us. In a time where people are always saying racial things, I can truly say that she doesn’t care about race. She just wants to care about the patient. Thank you Dr. Smith!

Review of Dr. Smith


We took our son in for a procedure this morning and were looking to Dr.Smith to take the time to answer our questions. This, however, did not happen. Dr. Smith seemed annoyed by our questions and all but dismissed and minimized our concerns. After the procedure was completed, very little care instruction was provided.She then accused us of not feeding our child due to him being "skinny."This was highly offensive and ignorant considering he is a growth restricted twin and gaining above 1oz daily.

Review of Dr. Smith

- in Dalton, GA |

She performed a surgery on daughter neck, she told us the surgery was successful but a week later the symptoms returned and got worse so we took her back for a second surgery were she didnt even show up. Another doctor had to perform the surgery to reduce the swelling in her neck caused by a cyst. The nurse set us up with a check up a few days later after surgery with her office were she walked in and no exaggeration she walked in a ripped the bandage right off my baby starting crying in pain.

Review of Dr. Joels

- in Cleveland, TN |

Dr. Joels is my mother's vascular surgeon. He makes his patients feel very at ease about their procedure, and also makes sure everything is thoroughly understood. Dr. Joels also has a wonderful bedside manner. He's very friendly and never makes you feel rushed. I highly recommend him.

Review of Dr. Phade

- in Athens, TN |

Dr. Phade is our hero. My 86 year old grandmother was rushed to the hospital in Cleveland on 6-25-2017 for hurting in her left arm, Come to find out she had a blood clot which was causing her arm to go cold and hurt. Dr. Phade recommended us taking her to memorial. He came and did the procedure to go in and get the blood clot before it moved.. thanks to him and the good Lord above we took her home with us that night.. We want to thank him from the bottom of our hearts!!!
