Review of Dr. Dworski

-Portland, TN |

Was left in a room for hours while having a severe allergic reaction. Didn't actually try to stop the issue until the nurses became extremely concerned. My BP had drop to 75/35.

Review of Dr. Nickels

- in Birmingham, AL |

Not be recommending Dr. Nickels. My allergy induced asthma is controlled with shots and asthma Meds. a different allergist set up. He is hard to get appts. with when you have an asthma flare. Does not look at his patients as individules, or listens to their past history to combine knowledge that could determine best treatment. "His wait and see" approaches to my care has delayed my recovery, added complication, costs and test not to mention loss of work. I have Never been treated so poorly.

Review of Dr. Nickels

- in Nashville Tn |

I was very impressed with Dr Nickels! He was very thorough and spent over 30 minutes with the exam and my medical history. Who does that? Most doctors are in and out in 5 minutes. He exhibited genuine concern and explained procedures and the test that I needed. And he was very knowledgeable and answered the questions that I had. Great bedside manner! Great doctor!!

Dr. D. Is a very caring and very gentle doctor. He has done several surgical procedures on me and I think he is wonderful and so very kind. My confidence in him is at the top.

Review of Dr. Babe Jr

- in Gordonsville, TN |

Vastly superior to Vanderbilt Allergy & Sinus Program. LISTENS and takes time to answer questions. Realistic in understanding of allergies and farm living. Didn't ridicule a 50 yo broad who wanted to run half marathons.

Review of Dr. Nickels

- in Seymour, TN |

I'm really surprised by the other reviews. We drive 3 hours to see Dr. Nickels and feel he is totally worth it. His staff was wonderful and he really listened to all of my daughter's concerns. He has even called to our home more than once to check in with her and confer on her care. I do feel badly for the other reviewers because we have dealt with other doctors like that, but I am thankful that we haven't had this exoeience with Dr. Nickels.

Review of Dr. Nickels

-Nashville, Tn |

Does not listen or respond to concerns. Kept me waiting for over an hour without introducing himself or apology. Abrasive, rude manner. Tries to push tests. As a VUMC patient since 1986 this was my most negative experience. Never Again!

Great doctor! He's an excellent listener and I appreciate the years of experience he has in allergy. I was tested and ended up not being allergic. My problems happen more when the weather changes and that was all explained really well. Fine with me because allergy shots are expensive!
