Do not see this physician, my spouse has been a patient there for just a few months and it seems that they are only concerned about patients getting costly steroid injections and nothing else. He was told he would even have to pay on the balance left from his insurance before they would give him any medication, then they just stopped his medication due to him being in severe pain and he ran out 2 days early. They acted like he was a drug seeker and this is the first time he has ever been to pain management. He has done construction for 30 years and his spine and knees are messed up, it is getting harder and harder for him to work. He did everything they asked him to do, even told them he was having more pain and they acted like it is no big deal.

Dr. Molette was assigned by workers comp for my husbands traumatic brain injury and she never listens to the case manager, myself as care provider and more so she argues with my husband about how he feels. She will not return phone calls and very unprofessional. She disputes other providers and also refuses to refer to other providers. The wait time is never less than 3 hours and she spends less than 5 minutes with my husband. Staff changes every time you go in. Very rude.

Excellent experience as a 1st time patient. Dr. Molette and her staff were all very nice, professional, compassionate (even though I was regrettably late), & I felt very comfortable with her. Totally understanding and non-judgmental. Non rushed visit and exam. More visits to follow. She believes she can definitely help me get some relief from my agonizing neck and back chronic (oftentimes debilitating pain). She has access to advanced testing and diagnostic techniques as well. I would recommend.

I have been a patient of Dr. Mollett for 2 years. I have never left her office feeling judged or sighted in anyway. The staff has always been nice to me even when I wasnt so nice. I always left feeling a little better and smiling at the staff. Maybe the bad experiences are just based on personality clashes.

Poor service-extremely unprofessional and made to feel like you are less than. Office staff is rude and non caring of their patients. Epidural injection was scheduled and procedure not completed because my bp was to high. Then when asked for my refill I was told I must be an alcoholic because my urine tested high from a night prior of wine with dinner. Ridiculous!! She sure did get her copay and I left empty handed after taking my medication for over 10 years. Now what?

CJ in Smyrna – Jun 19, 2018
Worst physician I have ever been to. Paid $300 cash for appointment and left with nothing but judgement and ridicule. IMO, she's steals money from a vulnerable population, the chronically ill. Bedside manner is non-existent, similar to an army drill sergeant. She reads questions from a screen and if your answers don't fit into her box she condemns you. I am currently in the process of finding other patient that have left her office in worse condition than they arrived. Feel free to contact me.

I WISH I COULD LEAVE NO STARS! The people who work for Dr. Molette are the rudiest and most unprofessional people I have ever worked with. Has anyone in this office ever heard of customer service? I was at the office in Nashville and they called the Smyrna office and someone from that office was talking about how incompetent the Nashville people were TO ME! It was a HORRIBLE experience and that woman should not be working with people. Dr. Molette should really take a look at her staff.

Olivia in Smyrna – Jan 05, 2018
Doctor asked what pain medication that I have taken that helped me. I told her what did help was tramodol which I found out from her that she doesn't prescribe it because it's a opioid. I found out by looking up my paperwork after I left that I was diagnosed with opioid dependency.

Murfreesboro,TN – Sep 23, 2017
I visted this doctor 2 times and she was professional during the visit. She did an EMG which was painful. She asked a lot of questions about my personal life. As I left it seemed her staff was making fun of me and another person before me that I saw running out of the office screaming in pain. I did not feel it was my best interest they were concerned about. I was told to call 10 days before my prescription was due and they would call it in I called and called and it was never called in.
