      He Doesn't Listen to me. Didn't prescribe what I needed. Didn't review my medical record, didn't check my breathing rhythm. Lousy Doctor!!!!!!!! Do not use!!!!!!
      in Knoxville, TN |
      I was charged $323 for the visit with a nurse practitioner that lasted approximately 10 min. I was not informed this would be the cost. After my "discount" I still had to pay $109.44 to speak to the girl. I did not get a sleep study. I will never, ever recommend this doctor's company (Tranquility Sleep Specialists PLC) to anyone. I never met Dr. McWhirter but clearly he thinks it's okay to code a mere consultation as an "Outpatient Procedure" and then charge you thusly. Shameful!

      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.
