Love his concern, professionalism and staff.
in Chattanooga, TN |
Seems more interested in retirement than in listening to patients and their needs. Just threw tons of medication at me instead of trying to get to the bottom of what has been bothering me. Won't be going to him.

Dr. Close is a condescending jerk. He should not be able to practice medicine. If you go to a doctor to try and get help but leave feeling worse about yourself there's a problem.
Chattanooga, TN |
Front staff is cold and indifferent towards patients. The want to get back to chatting among themselves. Once you finally get to the doctor, expect to be loaded down with more prescriptions than you really need. Especially the prescriptions that cost lots of money and are non-generic.

I have never been at any doctor's office and seen staff that they do not care, roundness and disrespectful to their patients. I was waiting to see md and I saw a receptionist screaming to one of the patients that made her cry. I went a head and walked out. it was my first time and last time in the roundness environment.
