Dr. Cauthen is an awesome doctor. He takes his time to listen and he asks lots of questions.. You can tell that he cares and wants to help you with your problem. I drive for 1-1/2 hrs just to see him instead of someone else that is near!! I highly recommend him.

As close to a death sentence as you can get. Long story short, he got my mother, sister in law and me in the basement of the hospital to tell us my brother had maybe a year to live with treatment. without it, 6 months. My brother was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer and we only found out the moment dr Cauthen gathered us before Tim went in for a procedure to actually determine the extent of his illness. I would love for Dr Death to know to this day that Tim is still living and doing well!
