If the rating was just on Dr Sanborn or Aimee, it would be a 5. They are the only reason it's not a 1. I am sick to death of the lack of follow through, disconnectedness, and overall lack of efficient organization of office staff. Worst I've ever dealt with anywhere in Chattanooga. I will run out of space before I could get all the details of their ineptitude down here. They can contact me and I will give specifics. Basically, they made an jalready stressful life event much more frustrating.

Dr Sanborn is an amazing and caring physician. His nurses are knowledgeable and kind. However , I have not had positive experiences with his FRONT OFFICE staff. They are in desperate need of some sensitivity training as well as attit ideal awarness.my attempts to reach the nurse were met with "I need to take a message and have her call you" . After 3 phone calls and no response I knew something was wrong and felt my messages weren't reaching the nurse. I was correct.

I love Dr. Sanborn and he did an excellent job with my Surgery. I wish I could say the same for his staff. I called 7 times over a 2 week time to speak with one staff member and never got a call back. I questioned his office manager as to whether this would still be a problem postop and she insured me that somebody else would be handling the nursing calls. I almost cancelled my Surgery due to this but I'm happy that I went forward with it.

Have had a few consults with Dr. Sanborn . He is very kind and listens to your issues. I have not had the actual surgery yet as I am having second thoughts due to the office staff. His nurse does not call you back without calling multiple times if at all. I am still considering having surgery with this doctor because it concerns me if I have any issues after surgery I will continue to get the same lack of service not from him but the staff.
