Dr. Neelam is a very good listener. He is very patient and knowledgeable. During my last two hospital stays, he was involved in my care. I feel better knowing that there are physicians like him around to care for the sick.

Review for Dr. Williams

Follow up with Dr. was a disappointment. I had to call several times to get results from MRI & then the nurse was not very professional when finally telling me how I was to follow up from diagnosis. No discussion about cause of injury, therapy, exercises, etc.. Will not be returning.

Review for Dr. Hinton

Dr Barrilleaux is a completely horrible person. He is abrasive, he missed multiple obvious diagnoses, and he smelled like alcohol in the room. AVOID AT ALL COSTS IF YOU VALUE YOUR LIFE.

Staff is very professional, make you feel welcome and comfortable. Wait time was less than 5 minutes. Dr. Collins and the nurse explained each step in detail and gave thorough instructions along with other useful information. Will definitely recommend to others.
