As a MSN, RN, and a patient of Dr. Jessup, I will honestly report that I feel very comfortable with the care provided by Dr. Jessup. She actually does assessments and seeks to solve the problem at hand and treats the patient (me) holistically.

On time. Too much paperwork, why do they have computers? Staff friendly and professional. I like Dr. DeWeese. He explains all options for my knee problem. He's willing to do whatever choice I make. After a cortisone injection, he steered me in the right direction. I will definitely see him again.

Review for Dr. DeWeese

Dr. Rains is thorough, spends adequate time with his patients, and is highly skilled. He treated my Paroxysmal AFIB competently and very professionally. As a patient, I trust his skill and judgement.

Paducah, KY - Jun 10 2019

Review for Dr. Rains

Very strong language barrier. I hope and pray that’s why he seems uncaring. If it’s not a language barrier then he really just doesn’t care or want to help.

Dr. Hodges took care of me during my 2nd, 3rd, and 4th pregnancies and I absolutely loved her! My 2nd pregnancy was high risk to my baby and she kept a great eye on him, giving me daily ultrasounds and inducing me 4wks early. She is the reason he wasn't stillborn. I highly recommend Dr. Hodges!

I had a fungal growth in my ears. After several visits he only cleaned out my ears but never prescribed medication to cure the condition. Changed providers who took a culture and subsequently wrote a prescription for antibiotics which cleared up the problem. Very disappointed with his service.
