      This doctor was highly praised by our PCP. Basically, Dr. Wierum wanted to remove my husbands thyroid and nodules every single time he went in. The Dr. never informed us about a genetic test, never did labs, never offered a wait and watch approach, and was too aggressive. New doctor (Neely) said this dr.'s approach was very aggressive. Long story short, the nodules size went back to normal and my husband still has his thyroid. Get a second opinion.

      He talks down to people and treats them like they aren't having the problems they are having. It is all about money to him. His staff especially Jackie is terrible. She should be terminated with how his patients are treated by her. She does not listen or care or pass on to him what his patients say. She acts like she is the trained Doctor. She isn't even a nurse. Kim his other staff person is wonderful. I can't say enough good things about her. One good person in the bunch!
      in Nashville, TN |
      Extremely knowledgeable and helpful in explaining your condition. He & his NP's explain on your level and encourages way to improve your condition not just with medicines. I trust his expertise 100%! All of his staff is very considerate and helpful!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
