Review of Dr. Peltier

-TN |

Think Dr. Peltier is a very good neurologist but extremely difficult to get an appointment with and does not returns phone calls without numerous tries to get in touch with her. It is not good patient care when you cannot get an appointment with her for 6-12 months.

Review of Dr. Slosky

- in Springfield, TN |

Dr. Slosky is not only a fine, careful cardiologist, but he had sincere empathy for us and our situation, which was critical for a time. He sits down to talk, doesn't look at a computer screen while taking your inventory, listens (wonderfully), gives you time to think, doesn't rush, and then answers questions with kindness, skill, and bis deep knowledge and experience. We love him. My husband is alive today for many reasons, not the least of which is the care and skill of Dr. Slosky. Ten stars.

Review of Dr. Jennings III

- in Nashville, TN |

I have been seeing Dr. Jennings for about two years now. I needed a cardiologist when I moved from Chicago to Nashville a few years ago. EVERY time that I have seen Dr. Jennings, it has been ON TIME, every time.....and he still takes the time to put you at ease, and speak directly with you regarding your health. I would recommend Dr. Jennings III, without reservation to anyone, including my family. A good dude. BT

Review of Dr. Glazer

- in Pleasant View, TN |

I have been seeing Doctor Glazer since 1996. He is the best cardiologists in Nashville. He is a great man who takes time to talk with his patients and get to know them.

Review of Dr. Chidsey

-Huntingdon, TN |

Dr Chidsey worked with Dr Petracek after my father in law had AVR & MVR. His local cardiologist had him on at one point 11 medications more than half unnecessary. Dr C reviewed procedure and gradually reduced his med list to three meds, more importantly got him off Warfrin which has its own drawbacks. He is seven years in and doing very well. All Vanderbilt the place to go . Dr Petracek and Dr Chidsey are Drs to go to.

Dr Petracek worked on my Father in law in 2010. He was suffering with Congestive heart failure. No other Doctors felt he was a candidate for surgery due to his risk factors, Age Overall Condition and disease progression. Dr P performed Aortic Valve, Replacement , Mitral Valve Replacement deviated atrium closure and a bypass. It number 1 saved his life but more importantly gave him a greatly improve quality of life. He is Seven years past surgery and doing very well Thanks Dr P

I have been going to see Dr. Stoke for over a year and can?t say enough about her care. From entering her office and working with her kind assistant, Emily... to the cleanliness and order of her treatment room, all the way to the check out process ? her office and professionalism are second to none. I have been beyond impressed with my experience at Vanderbilt Heart and Vascular Institute. I highly recommend!

Review of Dr. Glazer

- in Mayfield, KY |

We went into the hospital not knowing what could if anything could be done and he immediately answered our questions and told us he could help Bob. His bedside manner is above what is expected and we are forever indebted to his expertise and care.
