Dr. Hutcheson is a very patient surgeon. He has always taken the time to provide the needed care for my treatment and does not treat me like a number.

Review for Dr. Rickey Hutcheson, DO

Godly wisdom has been imparted to Dr. Jaggers. He listens to his patients and prays with them. Throughout his career, Dr Jaggers has used his God-given wisdom to diagnose patients’ conditions when no one else could. I trust him with my life, as does all of my family.

Dr. Sumida is fantastic. He tells you the truth and takes excellent care of you. He does what has to be done for you to get the best outcome. My second surgery and third time to be in his care. I highly recommend him.

In more pain a year after surgery then before surgery. He refused to find out the problem. Having to seek another opinion. Office staff incompetent.

Review for Dr. Eric Clarke, MD

Dr Sinha is very thorough in his dealing with patients. I would recommend him to anyone in the Decatur Tenn area. Have also seen the nurse practioner in the office. NP Samantha Huskey is also a very good health care provider . She listens to problems and interacts accordingly.

Dr Guan really took the time to explain why I was always tired in the daytime. Further get got me on the correct treatment with ease. The staff have always been nice to me and I had no issue getting copy's of my records to take home. Overall excellent choice.

Review for Dr. David Guan, MD

More than competent doctor with a caring informed staff. Dr. Collins takes time to listen to me which is unheard of among many other doctors. I have only good things to say about this medical practice.

I can't say enough about how good Ms English was to me. She and her nurse came to my home after office hours when I was unable to go to her clinic. Now who does that anymore??? This is now my new doctor and I would definitely recommend to new patients.

Review for Dr. Lee Radford, MD

First I was seen by two residents. They both examined me and I felt like I was being used as a learning tool. No one asked if it would be alright with me. Then, Dr. Waters came in and spent two minutes with me, wrote a prescription and that was it

Jun 01 2018

Review for Dr. W Waters, MD

Absolutely the worst Dr. I have ever encountered. He yelled at me for asking questions, about my back and stomach and demanded I leave his office. He didn't want me asking ANY questions. Was easily irritated. Didn't seem to care about me as a person. By far the worst doctor I have ever been to.
