Review of Dr. Epstein

-

I was referred to Dr. Epstein by my primary doctor. My blood levels showed signs of some medical problems but he felt the numbers were not high enough. That is fine but I am not a medical person so I wouldn’t have known that. My medical problems are important to me but I got the impression from him that I was wasting his time. That was not my intention when I went there I was wanting to understand what was going on. I believe he could have been more understanding.

Review of Dr. Bao

-

Dr. Bao was not thorough. Told me I had Hoshimoto’s and needed no treatment or further testing at this time. She didn’t know why I was swelling (hormonal) but it wasn’t bc of Hoshimoto’s. She disregarded a nuclear scan I had done in which the radiologist recommended a pituitary MRI. My primary care insisted I have the MRI. Results showed that I have a cluster of 3 adenomas in my pituitary gland. I will not be returning to Dr. Bao again.

Review of Dr. Epstein

-

Took my son there he was very rude not only to my son and to his staff. He asked for our records and we explained they were sent by the Dr. He called the nurse to get in touch with the Dr for the records she told him they were there and he had them. He was rude to her and other nurses who help us. I wouldn't recommend him to anyone! He requested more blood work and never told us what the problem was.

Dr. Utz is extremely thorough as she moves to diagnose a condition and is very good at explaining your options for treatment.

Review of Dr. Utz

-Maryville, TN |

I saw Dr. Utz this past week for a pituitary macroadenoma counsel. She was kind, friendly, beautiful smile, personable and knowledgeable. My husband and I never felt rushed to finish our appointment. She went the extra mile to explain the MRI I've had for 5 weeks and no one had explained what I saw there. It was comforting to have a visual picture and detailed explanation. I can highly recommend her and the lovely staff, Amanda especially, who helped to ease my anxiety with her friendliness

Review of Dr. Epstein

-Nashville |

Assumes your health habits without asking questions, keeps referring medications that are either not covered by my insurance or are covered but more expensive than my originals without insurance, and claimed my A1c was not correct after using the same machine they use for everyone. Not to mention he isn’t always rushed and tries to get out of the patient room ASAP, one time he literally just walked out without saying any type of ‘bye’ or ‘we are done here.’

Review of Dr. Epstein

- in Nashville , TN |

He really cares. He spent a lot of time with me during the appointment asking questions and really listening to my responses; rather than rushing through the appointment like so many doctors. Dr. Epstein even called me on a Sunday to follow up regarding how I’m doing and verifying my appointment info for a procedure he was scheduling.

Review of Dr. May

- |

Dr. May is hands down the BEST Endocrinologist you will find in this country. I'm appalled by some of the bad reviews that were left. He took care of me for over 10 years and takes care of the patient as a whole. I NEVER heard "it's not my field". Sadly we moved and I have never found another Endo like him. Please do not believe any of these bad reviews. Sometimes when patients fail to take on self responsibility they like to take it out on the Dr. Best Endo you will find!

Review of Dr. Zaidi

- in Franklin, TN |

I felt that Dr. Zaidi was personable and helpful in my diagnosis that my primary care doctor had missed for years. She spend a good amount of time with me and communicated through the portal afterwards. I recommended her to my mother and she likes her as well.
