Review of Dr. Hood

- in Old Hickory, TN |

Dr Hood is very easy to talk with, makes his thoughts easily understood, has a wealth of sensitivity and knowledge. I follow his instructions to the letter, and feel like I'm the most important patient he has. What else can you expect from a Doctor? Good guy too.

Review of Dr. Hood

- in Gleason, TN |

Dr. Hood was my husband's cardiologist through many heart conditions before he passed due to kidney failure, and he is a wonderful person as well as a fantastic specialist. He has a great personality and is very caring about his patients. I would recommend him to anyone who needs a competent, caring cardiologist who knows his specialty exceptionally well but is also very personable. I have a heart murmur, and I was so satisfied with Dr. Hood that I chose him as my cardiologist as well.

Review of Dr. Ball

- in Portland, TN |

Dr. Ball was very careful to make sure that I fully understood the procedure, what to expect and hospital procedure. He first meeting with me was in recovery following another procedure. He realized I was not alert enough to fully understand and had me come in for a clinic consult. His care before, during and after surgery has been excellent. I would not hesitate to have another procedure with him if needed and I would highly recommend him.

Review of Dr. Ball

- in Huntingdon, TN |

Dr. Ball was very compassionate, appeared very well informed and very pleasant to work with. He never left the room after surgery until he was certain he had answered all of my questions. He was equally informative prior to surgery.
