Review of Dr. Anderson

- in Waynesboro, TN |

I was referred to him by my PCP. My BP is out of control and stroke level. I went 9-24- 18 . He said I needed another BP med. He spent 3 minutes with me, with me having polycythemia, mitral valve prolapse, adrenal adenoma, and possible heart attack, with abnormal EKG. My 2 page medical questionaire was never looked at and left in the examining room when I left, It has taken me many phone calls to even get the meds he prescribed, because he didnt call them in. NO, NO DONT GO TO HIM!

Review of Dr. Thompson

- |

Not only was he rude, he told me that my PCP didn’t know what they are doing and that the only reason for my issue was that I was fat and crazy. Told me that he would bet me $100 that nothing was wrong. Should’ve taken him up on the money lol!

Review of Dr. Prudoff

- in Franklin. TN |

I have found Dr. Prudoff to be a caring and patient doctor. He is always anxious to answer any questions and takes the time necessary to explain. I would recommend him to family and friends.

If you need a Cardiologist, I highly recommend Dr. Sean Hughes. Dr. Hughes is thorough, caring, listens and comes up with solutions.

Review of Dr. Hughes

- in Lyles, TN |

I found Dr. Hughes to be pleasant and genuinely a caring person, he took the time to hear of my past heart problems before he examined me.

Review of Dr. Prudoff

-Columbia, TN |

do not feel he responds well to being questioned not clear on answers he gives. You can not tell him anything he does not appear to listen to patients concerns.

Review of Dr. Friesinger

- in Franklin, TN |

Have been seeing Dr Friesinger for several years now. He actually listens to what I'm saying and works with me to find a method of treatment acceptable to the both of us. Very easy to work with and staff is very good at helping you through the process and keeping up with meds, etc.

Review of Dr. Friesinger

- in Franklin, TN |

I had my first appointment with Dr. Friesinger yesterday. I had a not-so-great experience with another cardiologist in Nashville, so I decided to try Dr. Friesinger. What a difference!! First off, he saw me at EXACTLY my scheduled appointment time. That NEVER happens when I go to see doctors. He was very nice and EXTREMELY thorough. He asked tons of questions about my previous heart attack. He scheduled tests (blood and stress) unlike my previous doctor. This doctor is top notch, believe me!

Review of Dr. Thompson

-Eagleville, TN |

I was treated rudely and with bad bedside manners. It felt as if he was prejudging me and had little concern for me as a patient. I will not be using or recommending anyone in the future. The only positive was the detailed explanation of the prescriptions I was prescribed that should have provided by my primary physician .
