You cannot get a phone call to speak to anyone, always (with a few exceptions) goes to voice mail.....and that is not looked at until the next day, and sometime you don't get a call back. VERY BAD phone system, Dr. Fitzwater is a very good doctor to be saddled with this early 1980's phone system

Dr. Brown is fantastic. However, her staff has ZERO customer service skills. They are the most rude physician staff I have encountered in my life. I'm from California where people tend to be rude. But, these women must take classes, as they are absolutely horrible.

You will never find another Dr like Dr. Ladd. She is kind and blessed with a gift of taking care of you. Don't know how she does it dealing with the public. She goes the extra mile.

Review for Dr. Ladd

We moved to Tennessee 15 years ago and continue to she Dr Bukovinsky. We feel he is worth the 5 hour drive each way. This doctor has caught many things with the family that others have not and most importantly he listens to his patients.

Review for Dr. Bukovinsky

Dr. Moore is the best. If it is a medical situation that he does not handle, he will let you know and refer you to a specialist. Also, his staff is quick to call with test results. No waiting and waiting or having to call for results. For my family, he is the best.
