in Hendersonville, TN |
The incompetence in this office is amazing. The staff has no clue what they're doing and the doctor isn't much better. Was under his care for 5 months and I'm no better today than i was then but he wants to keep seeing me so i can pay him. NOPE, I'm finding another doctor who wants to help me not just take my money!

Sleep study was performed, received diagnosis and prescribed CPAP machine. It has dramatically improved my life. I thought I had dementia - turns out it was poor sleep causing memory and cognitive function problems. The staff was professional and courteous. I did not have a long wait in either scheduling or when at the office.

If I could give this Dr. 0 stars I would. Don't waste your time! Find another Dr.

Always have to call to get the office to remind them to get approval from the insurance for scans. (That's not my job) I have been waiting for two weeks for test results that they were suppose to call me about....I called them this morning, the staff had not even given them to the doctor, and they have had the results since Dec. 28'th 2016. I have been seeing him for over a year and it's an ordeal with his staff EVERY time. I'm going to speak with my PCP about him taking over my case.

This office clearly over books and knows it. We sat there with my adult disabled son for 1 1/2 hours. He wears diapers, had wet, and was extremely irratated as anyone would be. Now I know the red carpet doesn't need to be rolled out for him, but when places aren't equipped to take care of such things, priority should be considered.We haven't had this problem in the past, the waiting and exam rooms were full, so it appears there's a cattle rustling attitude about their patients now.Not going back

I have seen Southwell on more than one occasion and each time I am told that a prescription will be called in to a pharmacy but never is.I have followed up with Southwells office and they inform that they will see to it that a prescription will be sent in but it never is.Save yourself some time and try to find another doctor.The U.S healthcare system is in a state of shambles as are the times in which we live.
