Dr. Mehaffey is my Neurologist and has been for going on 2 years. She truly shows compassion and I have never felt that she was rushing me out. She is a blessing for my health and also my fellow Veterans that she takes care of at the VA!

Dr Barnes did both of my total knee replacements. First one in 2012 the second in 2019. I had no issues or problems. When it came time for the second one, no question on who would perform it. Dr Barnes has developed many techniques and devices. He is the best in my opinion

Dr. Smith was my PCP at UAMS before going into private practice. Instead of blocking a 20 minute spot, he blocked one hour. After just recently being in the hospital, we reviewed everything in detail. When I left, I truly appreciated how thorough he was with me.

Evidently we weren't worthy of her time. She'll treat him because he needs ECT treatments, but acts like she's doing us a favor by letting us be in her presence.

I didn't think it possible to be relaxed with a knife to my face, but he made me a believer. Two weeks after my surgery it is almost impossible to see any evidence of the surgery. Doctor Jennings truly has a gift and I feel lucky to have benefited from it.

Very happy with Dr. Smith. Easy to get into contact with him and he listens closely before he treats me...and I really feel like he knows his stuff. I am often 'on the go' so I especially like the efficiency of the multiple ways I can communicate with him.

She is the most attentive gynecologist I have ever seen and in my almost 70 years, I have seen a lot of them. She takes time to listen and offer options for treatment. She is in Little Rock at the UAMS and I have been seeing her for 5 years. Am a fan.
